Nathan on trial
Will Bethany make it to the courtroom to witness her rapist going on trial?
As paedophile Nathan goes on trial, he orders Mel to get Bethany out of the way…
It’s the day Bethany and her loved ones have been waiting for. Nathan’s in court, accused of rape and conspiracy to commit rape. But will the paedophile and his twisted cronies get sent down for abusing the teen?
Desperately needing to see justice served, Bethany’s nervous. Worried her word won’t be enough to topple master manipulator Nathan, she’s begged Mel, who was also abused by the salon owner, to speak out.
Tragically, for unaware
Bethany, Mel is still under Nathan’s wicked spell and is double-crossing her in a bid to save him from a jail sentence. ‘Nathan has been manipulating Mel, getting her onside, so he can use her to get back at Bethany,’ explains Chris Harper who plays him. ‘He thinks if he can get Bethany out of the way, he’ll be in the clear.’
After hearing from Nathan, who’s got hold of a dodgy phone in prison, Mel’s under orders to stop Bethany from appearing in court. Sucked in, Mel pretends she’s going to the police station with Bethany – but en route, Mel stops the car and drags her by the hair towards a railway track!
In court, Nathan’s feeling smug knowing Mel has done his bidding when Bethany fails to show up at the trial…
‘Without key witness Bethany testifying, the case is weak enough to let him wriggle free,’ says Chris.
When the police learn there’s been a fatality on a railway line, has Mel murdered Bethany? Copper Craig is terrified when he finds a necklace identical to Bethany’s at the scene…
Is Nathan about to get off the hook?
In danger… Will Bethany escape Mel?
