Summary *Coarse Language, Sexual References and Violence*Fresh out of hospital, Harry (Brian Cox) reasserts his authority and formulates a plan to get Noel (Aaron Fa'aoso) out of prison. Sissi (Suzannah Bayes-Morton) is falling for Thomson (James Mackay) and gets him a job exterminating cane toads at the wildlife farm. Marou (Jimi Bani) is still feeling deeply wounded over Harry's upsetting remarks. In an effort to earn his father's respect, he and Gary (Firass Dirani) score a stash of drugs from a trader ship in the Straits and then drive south to sell the drugs to another biker gang. The deal goes smoothly until Gary misinterprets the situation and shoots one of the gang, then Gary and Marou have to fight their way out. This opens old wounds for Marou whose football career was ruined when drugs were found in his car after an accident several years ago (in which Gary was driving). As Gary and Marou argue, Marou has a moment of clarity - he realises that Harry demands his obedience but has never respected it.At home, Harry is forced to admit to Kitty (Rena Owen) that he has been having an affair with the family lawyer, Natasha (Rachael Blake), for years. Devastated, Kitty leaves for the Straits as Marou returns home and confronts Harry.PRODUCTION DETAILS:A Matchbox Pictures production in association with ABC TV.
