Episode Summary

EDIT
Episode 2
AIRED:
The first task this week is the appointment of a new Lead Investigator chosen by Christine, who was killed by the murderer in last week's Killer's Game. She chooses Nick, telling the group he is "methodical and puts thought into all he does". Detective Chief Superintendent Bob Taylor reminds the Investigators of the clue left for Sarita by the killer - a key to a caravan in Mill Fields park where Catherine Prior lived before she was murdered. Dean Garretty is now missing, but they are told that a car has been abandoned that fits the description of the car that dumped the video camera. At the caravan site, Team 1 discover that the key does not fit the lock, but then Catherine's father, Frank Prior, Catherine's daughter Anya and her babysitter Vanessa March turn up. Frank tells them that he has changed the locks and lets Anya in to pick up some toys. When they leave, Team 1 search the area for an hour, and eventually come up with what may be a vital piece of evidence - an envelope that reads: "F Mills, shed 4, 4pm, 15/11/02." They decide that this could be a secret rendezvous. Meanwhile, Team 3 heads to the Wilmington family base, Creeksea Place, to interview Jennifer. She provides the team with a wedding list, but while they are there the groom, Jay Wilmington, phones his mother to say his house boat has been broken into. Team 2 have found the car but can't decide where to place the police cordon. They spend 20 minutes deciding where it should go. Unfortunately the killer is one step ahead and by the time they approach the car he has set a fire trap and the car blows up. Back at HQ, Mervin and Richard are searching through CCTV footage of the petrol station where Frank says he bought petrol on the day of the murder. Frank is cleared when they spot him on the tape, six minutes before the murder occurred. There are a number of unanswered questions: Where is Dean Garretty? What vital evidence is in the car that the killer tried to destroy? Who broke into Jay's barge? At 7am the following morning, the investigators are woken up by a loud banging on their door. They find some polaroid photos plastered to the patio windows with blood and a number of separate locations written on them. The team try to figure out what the killer wants before attending a morning briefing. The Chief tells them that Jennifer Wilmington received a call from Dean just before the team arrived to interview her yesterday. Although they had asked her if she had spoken to him, Jennifer said no, so she has lied to them. They decide to return to speak to her again and plant a bug on her. Team 1 head to the secret rendezvous point, and the Chief warns them not to get spotted and not to separate. Unfortunately when they arrive, Dean Garretty turns up early and they accidentally confront him. They give chase but he gets into his car and drives off before they can catch him. They decide to wait to see if anyone else shows up. Babysitter Vanessa March turns up and then leaves, before phoning Dean. Meanwhile, Team 3 are given a masterclass in surveillance at Creeksea - including a bottle to urinate in! They manage to plant six bugs in the Wilmington residence, including one on Jennifer's cardigan which is lying across the settee. They then find a hut in the grounds where they can listen to what's going on inside the house. Eventually builder Trevor Dobie, who is also a suspect, arrives. He thinks that Jennifer has left a tape on his doorstep. She explains that she hasn't and they watch the tape - it's the missing video tape from Dean's camera. Jennifer rings Nick back at HQ and he tells Team 3 to go and pick up the tape. At the final briefing, the investigators watch the tape. It seems that Dean and Catherine were having a relationship as they are kissing on camera. Team 3 fail for not testing for fingerprints properly on Jay's house boat and missing a vital lead. The Chief explains that they should have checked the glass that had been picked out of the corners of the smashed window - then they would have discovered that two set of prints were on the boat - those belonging to Jay Wilmington and Catherine Prior. The Chief once again conducts the group vote. After an initial tie between Meryl and Sarita, the group vote for Sarita. Nick, as team leader, casts his vote on Andrew, his reason being that he's judging the group on team work and Andrew is the only person he has had to ask for information on events while he's been in charge. Andrew and Sarita go to face the killer - Sarita DOES NOT COME BACK !moreless
