Episode Summary

EDIT
Headless Chooks
AIRED:
It is the day after the explosion. The Mt. Thomas police station lies in ruins; Senior Constable Joanna Parish is dead, as is Clancy Freeman; and Grace Croydon is missing. While Tom recovers in hospital, PJ, Ben, Susie and Jonesy move into the new police premises where they are met with a surprise: Nick Schultz, now a Detective Sergeant in Homicide, has arrived to investigate the attack. And he's not the only one. Sergeant Mark Jacobs has arrived in town for a temporary post - or so he thinks. But Inspector Falcon-Price wants Jacobs to move permanently into Mt. Thomas, because he wants a person more suitable than Ben to take over when Tom retires. Jacobs is an intellectual, self-confident, ambitious man in his 40s and quickly shows authority as the group move into their new premises. PJ and Nick question 'Rocket' Turnbull, Tom's old war comrade, although he claims - and Tom agrees - that he couldn't get access to that much explosive. When Cal Millic - the father who threatened Jo shortly before the explosion - is brought in, he seems a likely suspect, and the evidence begins to mount against him. A grieving Chris is equally distraught over Jo's death, Tom's injuries, and Clancy's death. But even she can't convince Tom to stay in hospital, and he has soon discharged himself to look for Grace, who was last seen going to see the Baxter family. Meanwhile, another cop has arrived to take up a permanent posting: Detective Senior Constable Amy Fox is a sweetly spoken, but smart and relentless detective in her early 30s, with a history of childhood tragedies. PJ, however, still reeling from his loss, gives her an unpleasant welcome, suggesting that she pack up her bags and go back where she belongs. On the advice of Tarni Baxter, Grace's car is found and, close to it, Tom finds her body in a creek. As he breaks down, the cops realise that the property belongs to Cal Millic's ex-wife's aunt. The other cops close in on Millic, but Tom is determined in his belief that the Baxters were involved. As he drives out to the property, he ignores the news on the radio that Millic may be guilty. When he returns, he has news: the only Baxter he found was Troy, who is dead - apparently the victim of an 'unfortunate accident'...moreless
