But will he succumb to her advances?
When Whitney is haunted by the memory of the night Leo was killed, Gray finds her disorientated on the street and takes her back to his place to discuss how Whitney’s previous relationships could be used against her in court.
Wanting answers, Gray quizzes Mick and Linda on Whitney's marriage to Lee and is surprised when Linda reveals that Lee hit Whitney.
In order to help her defence in the trial, Gray advises Whitney to use her flashbacks to piece together what happened the night Leo was killed. Distressed, Whitney is able to give a detailed account before breaking down.
As Gray comforts her, Whitney tries to kiss him.
