Things are returning to normal for George Freeman - he survived a shooting, his casinos are back in operation and his fiancée – the well-bred, incandescent Georgina – is the blonde icing on the cake.
Down in Melbourne, the coronial inquest into the Wilsons' deaths kicks off. Bob Trimbole and Brian Alexander both avoid testifying on the grounds of avoiding self-incrimination. But lawyer John Aston – whose law certificate is contingent on him being of good character – can't weasel out that easy.
Still recovering from her humiliation during her previous experience as a crown witness,
Allison testifies with trepidation. However, this time her credibility is not questioned and her testimony is accepted.
This is a huge win for Joe Messina and the Feds. Not only does the Coroner believe Allison’s shocking evidence but he also recommends a Royal Commission into the Mr Asia drug syndicate, a decision which would forceBob and Brian to testify or be served with contempt charges.
Brian's unpopularity worsens - the corrupt NSW police are fearful he will roll over and testify against them. Even Bob Trimbole – who's normally everybody's mate – turns his back on him.
Clearly Brian has become a liability, and drastic action needs to be taken against him. The body of Brian Alexander has never been found.
Elsewhere, there is conflict within the Federal Police Joint Task Force over how to deal with Bob Trimbole. Some of the police want to keep him under surveillance while they crack a large drug importation he is involved in while others are concerned he is a flight risk.
However, unbeknown to the Federal Police hierarchy, there is a ‘rat’ in their ranks who is feeding top secret intelligence about Bob Trimbole to the underworld.
After receiving his tip off about his imminent arrest, Bob pegs it to the airport with the Feds close on his tail. The police have issued a passport alert so the odds are stacked against him but Bob's a man who's never been shy to roll the dice.
