The law finally catches up with teacher Maya Stepney (Louisa Clein) when David Metcalfe (Matthew Wolfenden) lures her into meeting him.

David has been spying on the email correspondence between Maya and her teenage lover, David’s son Jacob Gallagher (Joe-Warren Platt) and has discovered that Jacob is planning to meet Maya at the cricket pavilion in the village with her passport and cash so that the pair of them can make their getaway.

Now able to intercept Jacob’s emails thanks to Ryan’s help, David poses as Jacob and sends a reply to Maya, setting the meeting time to 6pm. However Maya is in for an almighty shock when she arrives at the pavilion in the early evening to find David there instead of Jacob!
