Deirdre and Tracy sit in the Barlows' living room the night before the trial. Neither of them can sleep. Consulting a leaflet about panic attacks given to her by Gail, and talking about the 'fight or flight' reaction, Deirdre gets round to voicing her suspicions about Tracy and questions how truthful she's been about Charlie's murder. All the pent-up emotion of the last few weeks comes tumbling out. Upset and overwrought, Deirdre blames Tracy for Samir's death whilst Tracy blames her mother for the way she turned out. Deirdre tells Tracy that whatever she's done she will stand by her as she loves her but she needs to know the truth. Eventually Tracy cracks and confesses everything. Deirdre's shocked as Tracy tells her how she planned Charlie's murder months ago and staged the entire performance. Although stunned and disgusted at what Tracy's done, Deirdre promises she'll still stand by her daughter.
