The Garvey sisters watch in stunned horror as JP returns to the land of the living before awkwardly fleeing. However, the siblings were too slow and were discovered by Gabriel. JP wakes up in the hospital confused and highly suspicious. The doctors ask him if he has been under a lot of stress lately or if he is depressed.

Grace calls her to confirm her suspicions, JP does believe someone is out to kill him and Eva tries her best to defuse the situation. Grace is in a state but the sisters have more pressing issues, JP’s nasal spray containing the incriminating Rohypnol is gone.
In the present, Thomas and Matthew meet at their father’s grave. Thomas explains the circumstances surrounding the family secrets, they didn’t want Matthew to be complicit in their crimes. Only Thomas wanted to deal with his father’s mistakes, but Matthew is involved anyway. Thomas may be able to save the Claffin’s from shame and jail time, he has solid evidence that JP suspects someone tried to kill him and so they continue their investigation.
Next, the Claffin brothers interrogate Gabriel. They want to know if JP was pushed, but Gabriel can only tell his side of the story. He saw JP already in the water and then spotted Eva in a car with her younger sister. Thomas jumps on this information and asks Gabriel to elaborate. Eva wanted to see Gabriel but then left when she saw that he was with another man. Afterwards, Thomas warns his half-brother to beware of Becka’s involvement, she may have targeted him. Matthew reveals that he found a check for eight grand at Becka’s house and shows Thomas the photographic evidence. Thomas can hardly believe his luck.

Grace wants him to postpone the interview and rest, but he can’t let Eva win. JP arrives just as Eva leaves her interview beaming. He tries to further taint her image by telling Gerald more about her drinking problems, but it’s unclear who the boss will choose. JP heads home to rest and runs into Becka in his bedroom. In one stressful scene, she’s just grabbing the nasal spray before JP catches her, but he sees her stuffing some in her bag. The villain demands she show him what it is, but Becka rushes down the stairs, desperate to escape before he finds out. He is at odds with her and it takes daughter Blanaid to stop him from taking things any further.

There is another scuffle, this time with Grace, and she is pushed down the front steps of her house. They take her to the hospital, where the sisters look for a defensive Grace. As usual, Grace blames herself and downplays the event, but interestingly, Blanaid seems to be the disgruntled family member for a change. Do we have a new suspect in our midst? The aggrieved daughter saw her father argue with Becka and Grace in quick succession. Has she finally lost faith in her despicable father?
Episode seven comes to a close when Thomas learns that the all-important post-mortem is being carried out by the police, and then, in a final twist, Becka investigates JP’s mother’s basement.
