Emma teams up with O’Neil

Emma says sorry to Jimmi for her boorish behaviour when they were at the campus together, and her cryptically troubled apology alerts Jimmi that something’s very wrong. Emma admits Dave attacked her yesterday and Jimmi is insistent that she needs to tell Driver – this is attempted rape. Emma persuades Jimmi to speak to Driver and goes to see O’Neil herself. She has to overcome the woman’s initial hostility, but her revelation that she was attacked by Dave soon gets O’Neil’s attention. Now there’s two of them, they have twice the testimony and can get a conviction.

Emma’s hesitant but, as soon as she agrees to help, Jimmi arrives with Driver, who’s sympathetic but hard-nosed. Emma has a case for assault at best, and pursuing the rape case against a colleague is a risky proposition. If they fail to get a conviction, it could be seen as reason to keep her out of other stations. Driver’s apologetic, but offers instead to systematically destroy Dave’s career, to ensure that he’s punished in a way they can control. It’s painful, but Emma and, eventually, O’Neil agree. 

Meanwhile, Daniel and Zara go on their first date using the advice David gave them. Conversation is stilted at first, adhering to his advice to not speak about Joe, but Daniel soon hits on some embarrassing stories from their respective youths, which has them flirting with one another. As they leave, arm-in-arm, the two are on the verge of kissing when Zara takes a moment. Since this date has gone so well, should they instead consider following all of David’s advice? Two weeks with no touching…

Also, Rob’s planned day of relaxation becomes one of investigation and paranoia when he receives a letter informing him that he’s on a list of people vulnerable to fraud.
