At the police station, Harrison is on edge. When DI Lynette Driver arrives with an MO for the murderer dubbed The Scraper, he hatches a plan to pin Lauren’s murder on him. Harrison returns to Lauren’s house to clean the whole house and the body. He is meticulous but shaky as he strips Lauren and cuts off her ring finger, according to the MO.
After spending most of the day cleaning, Harrison leaves the house. Just then, he realises the front door also has his fingerprints on and so cleans the door. Harrison takes all of the evidence and his clothes and sets fire to them in a bin. He stands and watches it burn.
Meanwhile, Julia rings Lauren numerous times after she doesn’t turn up to the meeting with Mrs Tembe. Julia is concerned and very irritated but seeing Mrs Tembe and Imogen working well together, wonders if it’s for the best. Kevin comes in hung-over and stinking of alcohol, clearly upset about Lauren’s treatment of him.
