Vanessa Woodfield was utterly stunned when Rhona told her that not only had her rapist killer ex Pierce Harris been in touch from prison, she'd decided to help him fulfill a dying wish.
Given the horror that he inflicted on Rhona and many of her loved ones – including Vanessa who was kidnapped by Pierce – the vet is terrified for Rhona and isn't about to stand back and let something terrible happen.
Unaware that Vanessa is determined to stop her helping Pierce make contact with his son, Marcus, before he dies, Rhona is stunned when Ryan informs her he's found Marcus' number!
Rhona updates Vanessa, telling her horrified friend that she's contacted Marcus and is waiting to hear back from him.
When Rhona misses the all-important call from Marcus, it's Vanessa who spots the voicemail and after listening to it, she calls him back pretending to be Rhona…
Has Vanessa done enough to put a stop to Rhona's escapade?
