Faye, unimpressed, flees upstairs after Craig pointed out that she isn’t free yet and is only on bail.

Faye walks down the stairs to apologize for Craig’s overreaction and later, they commit to their relationship again.

Gary and Tim assure Craig Faye truly cares and they try to comfort him by telling him she needs to adjust.

As she returns to work at her bistro, however, it is clear that she has nerves. She even drops a tray.

Unfortunately, she finds it too difficult to cope with all the terrible memories she has experienced at the bistro.

Tim will be available to help Faye later in the week.

He suggests that Faye could take over Alina’s sales job at the factory and Sarah’s agreeable. She offers her a month’s trial.

Sally, Tim and Gary toast Faye in Speed Daal.

Her sentence was shockingly announced to the public and the judge gave her the most severe sentence he could.

He stated in court that he said: “Miss Windass, you have pleaded guilty to the crime of grievous bodily harm and the court acknowledges your honesty in making such a plea.

“It is something I took into consideration when I decided your sentence.

Faye was originally sentenced for three years.

“You have also made a submission that the alleged crimes of a Mr Raymond Crosby be acknowledged in mitigation, however Mr Crosby’s trial is ongoing and as such he remains innocent in this court’s eyes until proven otherwise.

“It is also certain that Mr Adam Barlow, your victim, was not your intended target. This demonstrates how poorly planned your attack was.

“This was a reckless and pre-meditated attack on an innocent man.

“I feel that I must give the maximum sentence possible to the court, despite your plea of guilty.

“Three years in custody.”
