Fabian and Amber confront Patricia about allowing Nina to come out of the attic; however, Patricia has thrown the key out of the window into the bushes. While hiding from Victor, Nina accidentally opens a secret panel in the attic with her locket and sees a pair of mysterious eyes looking out at her, causing her to panic. In the end, she uses a hairpin to pick the lock and leave the attic. She successfully finishes her “initiation ceremony” and later confides in Fabian about the eyes. The next day, Fabian asks Nina to walk with him to school, and on the way there, they recover the key and Nina decides to keep it for future trips into the attic – “the only place where [she] truly felt welcome”. In addition, Patricia listens in to a conversation in the staff room which reveals that something has happened to Joy – and the teachers are involved with the conspiracy. Patricia persuades Mara to help her steal Joy’s file from Mr Sweet’s office, instigating a bag search by Victor; meanwhile, Jerome sets up a phony date between Alfie and Amber, in which Amber expects meet Mick. That night, Nina and Fabian sneak into the attic to discover the pair of eyes is actually a painting, with some Egyptian hieroglyphics on the back, and when Nina mentions Sarah’s promise of the treasure they decide to speak to her again.
