After discovering that gangsters plan to kill her friend Edwin, she reports his situation to police, who inform her a body has been found and Zara identifies it as Edwin. DCI Driver then reveals that Edwin’s son Toby is still alive and, if they find him, he could identify his father’s killer. Zara remembers Edwin was staying in his mother’s old house and that’s where she finds a pathetic Toby, who’s unrepentant and doesn’t accept responsibility for his father’s death.
When Toby stops Zara calling the police, she tells him they already know about the murder and the deal Edwin was doing with the gangster. But Toby simply pins the blame on Zara – instead of giving his father money, she refused, sealing his fate to die; and now she’s involved the police, they are all doomed. Meanwhile, Daniel’s tracked Zara and Toby down and, between them, they convince Toby to tell the police what he knows.
