After the horrifying events of last week, Father Michael is struggling to cope with the guilt he feels at not answering Helen’s phone call.

He’s not the only one dealing with the terrible repercussions: caring cop and doting dad Andrew Powell (an excellent Mark Stanley) has an unenviable dilemma as the police conduct an internal investigation into what happened.

While Father Michael urges him to tell the truth, his colleagues pressure him to support them, but what will angst-ridden Andrew decide to do?

Meanwhile Sean Bean continues to be on stunning form and Father Michael’s steelier side emerges as the priest makes a powerful but controversial sermon, before confronting his past in devastating fashion.
