Episode Summary

EDIT
Broken Dreams
AIRED:
An aspiring ballerina is injured in a car crash and Jo seeks justice. However, the young driver of the other car, who is also wanted on theft, is determined to go free and not have a blemish on his reputation as he is studying law. Ben's lawyer sister Liz arrives in town for a case and he asks her to stay with he and PJ. She is soon roped in to defending young Robbie Hart, the driver. PJ is shocked to discover Benny Matthews O.D'd in a nightclub, since Benny was vowing to go clean. He soon becomes angry, trying to find out if someone, particularly drug dealer Anthony Cutter, was involved. After Merv Poole gives them pretty good evidence to get Robbie on the burglary charge, it looks like they could have him on the dangerous driving as well until Liz tells them a surprising deal. He supposedly has information on Benny Matthews' death and is willing to trade it for indemnity. Jo is suspicious but PJ is believing. Robbie claims he saw Anthony Cutter bashing Benny, but is scared to say more for fear of what Anthony will do to him. Jo is disgusted that PJ believes it, especially considering that the young ballerina may never walk again. PJ has his own reasons for believing, even though Jo thinks that Talia's broken dreams should put Robbie behind bars. When no-one can collaborate Robbie's story that Cutter forcefully injected drugs into Benny, his best friend Mark steps forward with small but not very useful evidence but it does seem to swing in favour of Robbie. PJ, meanwhile has begun flirting with Liz, something Jo doesn't like. She is clearly jealous but no-one else can see it. PJ discovers that Robbie's friend Mark is buying drugs from Cutter, and so, presumably was Benny. Realising his career is over, Mark tells them that he lied for Robbie so Robbie wouldn't tell anyone about his habit. Robbie made up the story after Liz accidentally told him that Benny was a friend of PJ's. Both of them are now in trouble and there is at least some justice for Talia. And PJ and Liz finally turn their friendship into something more. It's his first relationship since Maggie and he isn't wasting any time...moreless
