Episode Summary

EDIT
Episode 9
AIRED:
Mel and Darrell - in bed together - are disturbed by a kid at the door. There's trouble up at the Reynolds's house. Both Mel and Darrell rush up there, to discover Gina Barry (who Mel knows from the women's group), and Maureen Skillet, spray painting Reynolds's house. They're furious because they've heard Reynolds has got off. As a squad car pulls up Mel makes a run for it. But she's concerned as to where this disinformation has come from. Reynolds's case has only been delayed, not cancelled. The next morning, Giffin is back on duty following the collapse of Kennett's complaint. Kennett herself has been transferred, but there's another missing face. Mike only pops in to pick up his belongings - he really meant it: 'You know why I took the blame for Kennett? I was fed up - I was looking for a way out.' Giffin has to deal with Terry Reynolds. He videoed the women vandalising his house and wants them arrested. Mel is called in to identify the women and some of the scale are sent out to pick them up, including Natalie who has the task of bringing in Maureen Skillet, who despises Nat for 'murdering' her husband in custody. Nat behaves with maturity towards Maureen. Added to this, she gets the results of her sergeant's exam: she's passed. She also shows her new self-confidence with the creepy Wakefield with a public showdown. Mel and Wakefield are sent to deal with a reported rape. The victim is Sharon Reynolds who's been raped by two of the Caffreys in front of her children. Sharon refuses to talk to the police, although it's obvious to Mel that this is a message to Terry Reynolds. Wakefield couldn't give a shit about a 'dealer's tart who deserves all she gets.' When she returns to the nick, Gina tells Mel that it was Darrell who spread the rumour about Reynolds getting off, and Mel becomes suspicious when she sees Darrell going into a meeting with Newland. Meanwhile, Nat is called to the Reynolds's house: screams have been heard. She finds a family in despair. And Mel is despairing too. She finally confronts Darrell about his rumour spreading, and Darrell admits it:'It's the way things work. You have to do these things to get things done.' Newland has caved in to all Darrell's suggestions. Mel is totally disillusioned - with the smug Darrell, and with her job.moreless
