Episode Summary

EDIT
Slash and Burn
AIRED:
Terrified, DC Spears hides as Ferdinand crouches over DS Cork's motionless body and removes his car keys. When Spears calls on her mobile for back-up, Ferdinand hears and starts to approach her. Suddenly PCs Rickman and Taviner appear and Ferdinand makes a run for it, escaping in Cork's car. Barely alive, Cork is rushed to hospital. Acting DI Rawton invites a traumatised Spears to stay at her place. That night she is awoken by the sound of DI Collins attacking Rawton. Overpowered, he is brought to Sun Hill where he refuses to talk. Ferdinand proves evasive despite evidence that he has been in Spears's flat the night before. His house is located and when searched a bag is found containing money and Ferdinand's passport but Rawton believes it is a decoy. In the garden Spears finds a box in the pond as Rawton takes a call telling her that Cork has died. In the box they find cash, drugs, diamonds and a passport with a false name. Knowing this is the real running-away kit, Rawton lays in wait for her prey.moreless
