Having reached the end of her tether, Belle speaks to her Mental Health Care Coordinator, Rachel. She explains how she told Tom that she had a miscarriage instead of an abortion.

As the session goes on, Belle worries that Rachel is beginning to realise the extent of Tom’s controlling behaviour. She is desperate to leave but, as Rachel reassures Belle, the reality of her situation finally sinks in.

Rachel encourages Belle to take a break from Tom. Belle is terrified but realises that Rachel is speaking sense.

Belle makes a run for it as Tom lashes out

Back in the village, Noah tells Tom that Belle was in town for an appointment instead of walking Piper. Realising that Belle has been lying to him, he discovers that Belle took a trip to the abortion clinic.

In the barn and apoplectic with rage, he begins lashing out at anything in sight. Grabbing an iron bar, he takes a swing – and accidentally hits the barn’s rotary isolator behind him.

The ensuing electric shock sends Tom flying across the bar and into a beam. He hits the ground, unconscious or worse…
