DERANGED TO THE END
AN UNHINGED Kim RESOLVES TO SEPARATE Grace AND Esther PERMANENTLY, BUT HER ACTIONS MAY LEAD TO HER OWN DEMISE
Kim Butterfield’s obsession with destroying her wife Esther’s sometime lover Grace Black has driven her to such extreme measures that her marriage to Esther has now irreparably splintered, leaving her determined to eradicate Grace once and for all, even she has to kill her.
With Esther’s grandmother Frankie pressuring her to divorce Kim, nobody knows that Kim, who recently disappeared, is actually hiding in the Osborne family attic surrounded by a shrine to Esther as she spies on her wife.
Little Oscar’s discovery of Kim’s hiding place sparks Esther’s desire for the missing Kim again, leading her to her row with Grace as she asks her to leave them alone to sort out their problems. The argument leads to Esther and Grace sleeping together again and an eavesdropping Kim vowing to kill Grace.
In the aftermath, Esther dumps Grace but worries for her safety when she finally finds Kim’s shrine in the attic and fears that Kim is about to commit murder. Esther races to stop Kim from killing a sleeping Grace with a poisonfilled syringe, but as the situation boils over a traumatised Kim is left standing atop the village arch, contemplating suicide. Esther gives chase and reacts in horror when it appears that Kim has plunged to her death.
