On what to expect from the final two episodes, Shirley revealed: "Misconceptions and panic. She's got new people in her life that are vital to her, that she never even knew existed a short while ago.

"They have slightly taken over her world, or she's allowed them in and within that, there's danger and a lot of accusations, and torment," she told "She's almost tormenting herself, physically and mentally, and imagining things that are maybe never going to be, and can't possibly be. And she is affecting people in the wrong way."
