The Beales (well, what’s left of the Beales) are hopeful when they hear the news, however Sharon gives Ian and Jane a reality check, telling them that Bobby murdered his sister and he deserves to go to prison and do his time.

Ian waits anxiously to hear the verdict – will his son be freed, or will he be spending his teenage years in a cell?
