Once bubbly, happy and bright, Bex returned to her family after running away a hardened, world-weary young woman. But a born survivor, Bex tried her utmost to pick up where she left off. Her arrival created tensions in the Fisher household, especially between her and Jess. Waterloo Road offered new hope for Bex and with its single sex segregation policy she seizes it as an opportunity to leave behind the seedy world of porn and Hodge, the man she met nearly two years before who led her astray and then betrayed her. By coming to terms with the abuse she suffered through Hodge and his films and ultimately seeing Hodge face justice, Bex was able to forge a new brighter future with her family and earn the grades she needed to go to university.
