Harry's work colleague Justine Thompson is murdered in her house with her daughter Gemma whilst her stepson Charlie, also attacked, lies in a coma. Baby daughter Ellie, however, is unharmed. Husband Stuart is prime suspect but he has an alibi and his grief seems genuine. The post mortem shows that Gemma was pregnant and the team learns that Justine once needed a restraining order against Stuart's brother Kevin, who was obsessed with her. Mrs Barron, the lady from next door who found the bodies, finds evidence on her son Joel's computer that Gemma and Charlie were lovers as Joel rides off to see Kevin.
