Max Branning may have ripped up Emma Summerhayes’s file of notes about Lucy’s murder, but that doesn’t stop Lauren from turning detective.
Lauren will be seen piecing together the evidence in secret during next week’s episodes. With dad Max still behaving erratically, Lauren decides to hide the case file but doesn’t notice when a slip of paper falls out.
Later in the day, Lauren discovers the scrap stuck to her shoe, but as she goes to throw it away, she realises it’s a missing piece of paper from Summerhayes’s notes. Lauren is shocked to the core when she realises what the paper means. Has she discovered who killed Lucy?
