“When I came to Australia, I was dealing with a lot of dark things and I think I brought a lot of my old habits with me,” he tells her. “I was dealing with depression and basically I felt like less of a man. I apologise. At the end of the day that really comes back to me so I’m sorry for that.”
It appears that Micah’s confession meant a lot to Catherine. “I think he is really feeling vulnerable and is hurting about the pain he has caused others,” she says.
“I hope we can, not necessarily forget the past, but can turn the page on it.”
Micah adds: “I think acknowledging the consequences of my actions with Catherine will bring us to some kind of resolution.”
