Ned went to meet him as he thought Harry realised how dangerous Finn was.
HARRY: (Flashback talking to Ned,) Finn and I have history. He belongs in jail and I know how to get him there.
Harry told Ned he wanted to set Finn up. Harry mentions Finn trying to poison the school and Harry wants to do the same thing at the Community Centre. Ned thinks it's a crazy idea but Harry thinks it will work if they just set it up to look like Finn is the culprit. Harry plans to tip the police off afterwards. Ned is reluctant as people could get hurt. Harry insists it will be fine, the chemicals are fine without being mixed. Finn will take the blame.

Mark wants to know what Harry's intention was. Harry tells them that he was the one to look out for Finn and support him. Harry was in love with Finn and thought Finn returned those feelings. Finn lied and used Harry which upset Harry. Harry was also upset when Finn got away with what he did after coming out of the coma. Mark mentions the poisoning, Harry had been told by Ned that nobody would be there. Mark says that Ned told them that it wasn't planned to release the gas. Harry tells them that he wanted to make things look at least convincing so that Finn would be locked up. He didn't intend to hurt anyone else including Imogen. Mark realises that Harry tried to run down Imogen and Susan. Harry claims that he just intended to scare them so they wouldn't help Finn anymore. He tried to swerve but more people sympathised with Finn instead.
HARRY: I can't stand the thought of people forgiving him. So I had to come up with ways to stop it.
Mark realises that Harry put the razors in the fruit as well. Harry thought people would see the razors before they were hurt, that didn't happen though. Harry has been watching everyone. What happened with Elly was accidental. Harry intended to leave a note for Susan that was threatening.
