“The only thing that matters is that I said no and that he raped me!” Those were Rhona’s passionate words during the rape trial this week, a speech of courage that easily made my Scene of the Week and possibly swung the jury when it came to making a decision. From day one of this storyline, Zoe Henry’s performances have been superb, evoking so much admiration for Rhona’s bravery and strength. Scenes in a court room can be a bit lacking in soap – whether too long or too tedious – but Zoe’s performances lifted these moments into something dramatic and compelling. Rhona finding her voice against the hideous lines of questioning regarding her sex life – a reality faced by many women  – was an emotional and inspiring moment that really stood out in this week’s episodes.
