Earlier on, Cindy is a bundle of nerves when she receive a scary phonecall that leaves her very unsettled.
Meanwhile it’s the day of policeman Saul Reeves’ (Chris Charles) funeral.
Saul was tragically stabbed and later died from his wounds when he was caught up in the vicious warring between schoolboy DeMarcus Westwood (Tomi Adi) and his violent and bullying rival, Joseph Holmes (Olly Rhodes).
Meanwhile, Saul’s girlfriend, Grace Black (Tamara Wall), has been hellbent on getting her revenge on DeMarcus who she thinks is responsible for Saul’s death.
Earlier in the week Grace was seen buying a gun and was ready to use it on DeMarcus as payback!
Today is the day of Saul’s funeral but Grace’s grief is dominated by rage.
In a moment of anger she decides to bar Cindy and Verity Hutchinson (Eva O’Hara) from the funeral service.
However, Cindy who recently moved in with Grace, refuses to turn her back on Grace and instead goes ahead with organising a carwash fundraiser in Saul’s honour.
But things later take a chilling turn for Cindy.
When she receives a phone call that leaves her very shaken, her friend Tony Hutchinson (Nick Pickard), starts to worry that Cindy’s grief could be triggering her bi-polar disorder.
But is Tony jumping to the wrong conclusions?
Later on, when Cindy is asleep a terrifying masked intruder comes into the house and watches her while she’s sleeping.
When Cindy wakes up she’s horrified and scared out of her mind.
Who is the mystery intruder and what do they want?

As Zoe’s emotions run high, will she be able to remain professional at her colleague, Saul’s funeral?
