Joe Miller surprises everyone (including his junior barrister, Abby Thompson) by pleading not guilty to Danny Latimer's murder. Ellie Miller is now a uniformed police officer in Devon, while her nephew Olly Stevens cares for her son Tom (who blames Ellie for his father's incarceration). The Latimers convince highly respected, retired Queen's Counsel, Jocelyn Knight (a local resident) to help prosecute Joe. Joe hires Knight's former protégé, barrister Sharon Bishop as his defence counsel. Bishop immediately secures an order to exhume Danny's body. Alec Hardy, still living in Broadchurch, admits to Ellie that a witness in the Sandbrook child murder case, Claire Ripley, is living in Broadchurch. She is a witness in the case, he says, and named her husband, Lee Ashworth, as the murderer. Protecting her is the reason he came to Broadchurch. Hardy convinces Ellie to stay with Claire as a safety measure; she accidentally discovers, in a blank card contained in an envelope wrapped in lace, a pressed bluebell. Meanwhile, Ashworth arrives in Broadchurch and steals phone records and a letter about Hardy's medical condition from Hardy's riverside house. Mark Latimer is seen spending time with Tom in Susan Wright's old caravan. Reverend Paul Coates secretly provides spiritual counsel to Joe, while dating hotel owner Becca Fisher.
