Asked if he thought the recent events were a reminder of his past, Dean explained: "I think when someone who's been part of something as big as that with the kind of people he's been part of, he's trying to get away from it all in a small village in the middle of nowhere.
"But you know, as you do in life, things can come from your past that you really don't want to, so I guess there's always a chance," he added.
Ex-policewoman Harriet is still suspicious of her boyfriend as their relationship could rock.
Dean continued: "Any such great thing can nail any relation, moreover steady it may be. Will has a tendency to keep slipping up a bit. "As more aspects about Will's history come out into the open, might he end up destroying his friendship with both the vicar if he moves very far?

She told him: "I was so stupid I can't believe. I put my confidence[ Will] in him and now I don't know what to do.
"That is Will. He is paranoid, he believes that people are out to get him. I have tried to reason with him but my family runs the risk of falling apart.
"I need you to rid myself of this. I know no one else to turn to, "she pleaded.
However, after mistaking him for the rustlers at Moira Barton's (Natalie J Robb) farm, Cain decided to take matters into his own hands and used the gun to shoot Nate Robinson (Jurell Carter).
With concerns lingering as to why Will specifically had the weapons, is he in danger of losing everything for good as the truth emerges?
