Whilst the court case is over, the repercussions of the slap are far from resolved for Aisha. Her marriage is buckling, and Rosie isn’t returning her calls. Relief comes in the form of a veterinary conference on the Gold Coast. No family. No drama. No slap. At the conference she meets the charming, charismatic Art Martinez, one of the keynote speakers. Art is gorgeous, interesting and doing some exciting work around the globe.
They click instantly.
After the conference, Aisha meets Hector at a luxurious resort in Byron Bay for their anniversary. They are polite but distant. At dinner they get into a fight about Harry, and it is revealed they know he’s hit Sandi in the past. Aisha accuses Hector of covering for Harry and blames him for revealing Rosie’s secrets at the trial, but the truth of it is she feels guilty. Unable to cope, Hector breaks down and confesses to an affair.
Aisha feigns distress, but deep down feels nothing.
Back home, Rosie finally agrees to meet Aisha. Aisha tells the truth about Harry’s history of violence and Rosie explodes, leaving their friendship destroyed.
Aisha, Hector and the kids attend Rocco’s birthday party. Alone with Harry, Aisha confronts him about his mistreatment of Sandi and vows never to forgive him.
