Will Jean reveal the truth to Martin?
Speaking about whether Jean would ever forgive Ruby for sending Stacey to prison, actress Gillian Wright, who plays Jean, 明らかに: “That is a big question! Probably not, no definitely not.
“The story unfolds in an unusual way, what is nice about it is that Jean doesn’t behave in a way in which the audience would expect.”
