David appoints Ben as instructing solicitor on the Attorney General rape case. Rhys is absent so Ben is left to deal with the pre-committal conferences with the women alleging the rape. One of the women, Nadia Tesla, is young and clearly traumatised. She has a harrowing tale to tell, but she is not going to be a convincing witness. However, her friend, Bintu Sesay, is older and a little wiser, and it's obvious she'll be their star witness. But in a fragile moment she confides in Tracey — and tells her something that could blow the prosecution's case apart.

Richard has to prosecute his climate scientist hero Steve Coburn for assault, after Coburn punched a persistent climate denialist, James Watt. It seems like a no-win situation. But a deft piece of advocacy from Richard wins the case — and the respect of his hero.

The police want Tatum to oppose bail for a young woman caught with cannabis in her car. Tatum knows the woman is the daughter of a criminal, and can't help feeling for her. She's happy to take the plea bargain — but Andy is not happy.

Meanwhile, things flare up between Erin and Lina again, when Erin walks in on her steamy shower session with Andy.
