The seeds are sown for a showdown after the police stop by the Beale household to disclose that Jake Stone (Jamie Lomas) – the current prime suspect in the case – is to be released on bail, as a result of new evidence coming to light.
Ian (Adam Woodyatt) isn’t satisfied with the police’s explanation, however he soon uncovers more information via Mick Carter (Danny Dyer), who tells him that Billy is now a possible suspect.
When Peter finds out he struggles to control his temper and a frenetic confrontation ensues with Peter throwing Billy against the wall. Will Billy be able to convince Peter that he had nothing to do with his sister’s death?
