DS Samantha Nixon and Dr Hugh Wallis are concentrating on the Royal Navy link to the serial rapist, and interview a Scottish prostitute whose rape over ten years previously matches the profile and may have started the rapist off. PC Andrea Dunbar hides a press clipping of an article she wrote about the incident, but fears for her cover when a journalist colleague arrives at the station to interview PC Lance Powell as the 'new face of Sun Hill'. Powell investigates what looks like another homophobic hate crime when a man is bashed after meeting a young man at a gay club. PC Sheelagh Murphy is shocked when she recognises her son Conor on the CCTV evidence, and Powell is forced to arrest Conor for GBH. DC Jim Carver and PC Honey Harman investigate when a fortune teller has her crystal ball stolen, and Jim later visits June Ackland in hospital where he hands her a ring and proposes to her. PC Gabriel Kent all but admits to PC Cameron Tait that he raped PC Kerry Young, then calls off sick.
