Jack receives a letter that puts him in a reflective mood before he leaves for court. Outside the courtroom Roxy gives Jack one more chance to be honest but is left gutted when he doesn’t confess. Inside the courtroom Jimmy tears into Jack over his capability as a father, using Penny’s accident and Billie’s death as ammunition against him. Jack makes an impassioned speech on how it’s not fair to be judged by mistakes from his past; all he wants is to be there for Amy, that’s what dads do. Jack is furious with Roxy for allowing Jimmy to smear his name but Roxy confesses she knows all about the passport, warning him that she’ll do whatever it takes, as that’s what mums do.
