Rob's wife, Karen (Jan Pearson) is already worried that Rob has grown distant from her. 

Rob is about to book a therapy appointment for his PTSD as instructed by his boss, Inspector Zoya Okoro (Donna Berlin), when Harriet turns up unexpectedly on his front door. 

Harriet apologies for lying about the night of the accident but says she felt she couldn’t back out of the mess she’d created. 

Rob is still fuming and tells Harriet her betrayal hurt all the more because of the close ‘rapport’ the two of them have. 

Rob's words lead Harriet to bring up the charged moment they shared at Colin’s leaving do.

Emma is reluctant to make the situation worse and Karen quickly backtracks, telling her to forget they ever had this conversation.

However when Karen arrives home, she overhears Harriet and Rob having a conversation. 

The two of them are discussing how different their relationship might have been had the incident in the warehouse never happened.
