Earlier in the episode, shown on Channel 4, Ryan's lover Ste Hay confronted the copper himself after discovering Ryan not only murdered Amy but also tried to drown Ste's sister, Tegan in the bath after she threatened to expose his killer secret.

But Ste had murder on his mind, as he ran the bath water and threatened to drown a terrified Ryan!
