  • "And you will always be a Scrubber" I loved it when Trisha said that to Roberta in the takeout shop. Loved it!

    Another great episode, Jasons back and wants to put the family back on the map. And he jumps straight into it by collecting money that is owed to him. He seems angry as ever, angry with his dad too that the family has become weak.



    I didnt think that Jason would be offed so quick. I was so shocked that Mr T made this hit right in front of children. Just shows that he is pure evil. And the christening/victory party that was thrown by Carl and Roberta was heartless but I guess that is what Carl "fatboy" Williams mostly known for.



    Poor Benji being interupted while getting a headjob, just seeing the look on his face when the cops paid another visit to him. Grrr frustrated!



    Roberta truley showed that she is a Scrubber when she had the run in with Trisha. She always has a good trashy comeback when it comes to running into enemies.moreless

    This is a well written & directed episode. I'm someone who doesn't know anything about the Melbourne ganglands was shocked to see the footy clinic shooting. The fact that this really happened & it happened in Australia is just shocking. You immediately feel for the kids.



    The humour of Benji with the police following him was good & balanced out the episode. I guess by making it obvious to Benji they were following him the police did stop Benji from being the hitman for Jason Moran. However wouldn't it have occurred to them Carl would have found someone else?



    The celebration from the Williams after the shooting was sickening to watch. It shows how heartless & cold blooded they were. The sad thing about this series is it shows how powerless the police were. They knew Jason Moran would be a target (hence why they sent him out of the country) yet couldn't stop it.moreless
