Growing increasingly impatient with the Commissions lack of results, the Attorney General, Lincoln Priest (Philip Quast) gives Janet an ultimatum: resign as Royal Commissioner or have her reputation ruined by the State Corruption Commission. Janet refuses, but fortuitously for her, they quickly solve Todd Wilsons murder - a tragedy of errors involving Simon Hamilton (Aaron Jeffrey), Robbie (Josef Ber), Jane Carter, and a 3D-printed handgun. Meanwhile, the fight over the embryo is headed for the Court of Appeal, where Deborah Larson (Genevieve Hegney) mounts a challenge to the original decision to grant Janet ownership. The appeal is overruled. As the hunt for Ash's killer continues, a series of events sees the suspicion on Bao Long (Jason Chong) mount. Bianca (Anita Hegh) volunteers as Janets minder, and the close living quarters lead to a new level of intimacy between them. Janet hatches a plan to catch the importer of the handguns still sitting on the docks, but it requires placing an unprecedented amount of trust in Owen (Damian Walshe- Howling), a colleague typically governed by self-interest. As part of the ruse, Janet orders the suspension of the Royal Commission, and a termination of all surveillance operations, except for one hidden camera.
