Episode Summary

EDIT
The Price of Friendship
AIRED:
The prospect of the Racing Club Carnival dance has the Heelers in a frenzy to find partners.There is little to celebrate when an armed robbery of the race takings leaves a security guard seriously wounded. The only clues, a Mudlark's Grand Final Pin is found at the scene of the crime. Could one of Jack's fellow football team be responsible? The Heelers call in football coach, Ian Waldron, to find out which Mudlarks's players have pins but the carnival atmosphere fades for all when Ian tells them that his son Matt, Jack's good friend, is dying from a brain tumour. Ian has spent his company's fortune trying trying to find a cure for Matt in Brazil and must close his factory. There is little chance Matt will survive to see his wife deliver their first child. Jack finds it difficult to confirm the alibis of his football buddies for the time of the robbery and is puzzled by the behaviour of his mate Scott who has been acting strangely since Matt returned from Brazil. Jack is certain something's up. Scott is about to lose his job at Ian's factory. Putting two and two together, Jack dare not believe his own thoughts—could Scott or Ian have stolen the money to help Matt? Or themselves? Jo saves him the trouble. Both men have a motive for the robbery. Maggie is moved by Matt and his wife Letty's sad predicament and understands their desire to have a child a spite of the knowledge that it will grow up without a father but she is shocked by PJ's lack of compassion.What kind of life is that for a child? PJ gets a lead on the race course robbery. Two witnesses believe the suspect may be identified by a conspicuous limp but when Scott fails to hand in his badge, PJ targets him for questioning. When PJ finds the weapon from the armed robbery at Ian's factory, both Scott and Ian confess to the crime. Jack is certain they are covering for someone and when new evidence puts Matt in the frame, PJ is forced to arrest him. Jack and Ben have the difficult task of escorting Matt to the St. David's courthouse where Matt manages to escape. Jack knows Matt has gone into hiding until the baby is born and has a good idea where they might be. For Jack, the price of a friendship is high. Matt's tumour could kill him at any time and Letty's baby is due. They may be together but Matt has placed his families lives at risk.moreless
