Judgement Day for Chrissie…
Lachlan overhears Chrissie telling Lawrence that Robert’s testimony could potentially sway the jury as she worries about her appearance in court over the helicopter crash. He decides to beg Robert to help his mum and it seems his heartfelt plea may have worked.
Gabby is frustrated when Bernice tells her she can’t borrow a necklace because she lent it to Val, so she asks Eric if she can look through Val’s things and get the necklace back. Eric is furious and refuses, leading Gabby to suggest to Lachlan that they could both break in and get the necklace back.
Later, Robert wishes Chrissie luck, admitting it was Lachlan who convinced him to speak up for her in court.
…and Pollard angrily awaits the verdict!
Meanwhile, David dreads to think what Pollard will do if Chrissie is cleared and is left worried when Leyla reveals no one has seen him. Fearing he might have hurt himself, they break in and are horrified to find his shrine to Val. David urges his father to see life needs to go on but Pollard refuses to listen ordering him to leave. David handcuffs himself to the bannister in protest but is soon thwarted by Pollard. He insists if Chrissie doesn’t get justice, he’ll serve her his own punishment. Unable to get free, David awakes the next day in a panic. Nikhil arrives and finds David padlocked but as Eric has already headed to court are they too late?
At the courthouse, Chrissie is found not guilty and an incensed Eric sets to wreak his revenge only to get himself arrested! Lachlan is furious with Eric and tells Gabby they’re breaking in to his place that very night. Once inside, he steals Val’s ring and Gaby takes Bernice’s necklace but Lachy isn’t done there.
Eric returns to see his shrine to Val wrecked and is left angry and upset when he discovers her engagement ring has also been stolen. He rages at David thinking he’s responsible. David’s heartbroken as Pollard boards up his house, vowing that no one will touch anything of Val’s ever again. Gabby challenges Lachlan over Val’s engagement ring and threatens to tell the police but can he tempt her to keep quiet?
As David struggles to get through to his dad, he thinks there’s only one thing he can do and that’s track down Val’s ring and get it back. Where will he start?
