Episode Summary

EDIT
Oil and Water
AIRED:
After months of courting, Tom is ready to declare his feelings for Sally Downie with a special gift that once belonged to his wife, Nell. Though at times Tom's position as a copper and Sally's position as a lawyer cause them to clash professionally, they usually manage to separate work from their relationship. When the case of a drunk driver comes up for court Sally takes the assignment, only to find her relationship with Tom also on trial. Tom has a special interest in this case—Sally's client killed a friend of his and in similar circumstances to the death of Nell. Old wounds open. As Maggie prepares the prosecution's case, she is caught between duty and concern for Tom. On the one hand, the Heelers are determined to put this recidivist drink driver away. On the other hand, Maggie knows that the personal issues at the root of the case plan Tom and Sally firmly apart. Tom wants to see justice done by the book and for the sake of his friend. Sally believes her client deserves a second chance. The Heelers are confident of a conviction until a procedural oversight by Dash loses their most important evidence. An astute and accomplished lawyer, Sally deconstructs Maggie's case using the letter of the law until there is barely a shred of evidence left. Tom comes under pressure from relatives to salvage the case, but when the Heelers learn their prime witness has died from a heart attack, there seems no chance of a win. In spite of her assured position, Sally calls Tom to the stand and suggests his personal interest in the case gives the police an agenda to jail her client. This time, Sally has gone too far. Tom makes one last attempt to secure a reluctant witness to the trial who could turn their case. If Tom wins this court action, however, he is certain to lose Sally.moreless
