Even though Liv promised her abused brother Aaron that she wouldn’t go to court for Gordon’s sentencing, she’s desperate to see him get his comeuppance and skips school to attend. She's relieved when Aaron turns up, too, adamant his little sister shouldn’t have to face their evil dad alone.

However, as the sentencing is read out, Aaron still can’t seem to shake off his dad’s nefarious presence in his life when Gordon mentions he sent him a letter from prison – unaware that Robert kept the letter a secret and ended up burning it! Confused, will Aaron find out the truth?
