The firearms are deactivated and Janet's (Marta Dusseldorp) team leaves the container under surveillance for collection, only to discover it's Amil Nobakht's (Omar Al-Sobky) phone number on the paperwork. But Amil doesn't initiate the pick-up.

With growing political pressure to start showing results, the AG, Lincoln Priest (Philip Quast), orders Janet to write an interim report. But she refuses - saying she'll write it only when they make real progress.

Meanwhile, the embryo case is now in the probate division of the Supreme Court, where, with Tony's (Peter Kowitz) help, Janet finally succeeds.

During therapy, Keisha (Melissa Bonne) says she heard a woman's scream the night of Todd's murder. Lina (Andrea Demetriades) and Andy (Christopher Morris) have no luck finding this witness, so with the container still uncollected, Janet decides to escalate the undercover mission.

Undercover, Bianca (Anita Hegh) and Andy (Chris Morris) arrange to stage a fight where he abuses and threatens her in front of Felix (Stephen Hunter), hoping to trick him into revealing who shot him. Bianca surprises the team by showing up with her face bruised, making the abuse look more physical. The plan works and Felix contacts the standover man who shot him to warn Andy off.

Meanwhile, Janet is raided by the Corruption Commission who confiscate her devices. Meanwhile Andy and Bianca wait for Felix's shooter- a man who's potentially Ash's killer - and it's Brett Bonar (Andrew Henry) who appears. And he's armed.

A few days after the Royal Commission is suspended, the container of guns is collected and a camera inside reveals the surprise identity of the ringleader.

Owen (Damian Walshe-Howling) follows him to a clandestine meeting, giving Janet (Marta Dusseldorp) proof that the corruption has spread to big business and government, and will ultimately bring down the biggest political scalp of all. But until she's cleared at Corruption Commission, she can't go public with the findings. Tony (Peter Kowitz) steps in and cleverly traps the Commission with their own charter, and the investigation is dropped.

Janet's now free to expose the extent of the corruption and criminality in the importation and distribution of the guns, but the gunrunner has one more ace up his sleeve. He claims he knows who killed Ash, and warns they're planning an attack on Janet soon.
But when DNA findings reveal genetic markers for Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome - meaning the killer is female - Bianca (Anita Hegh) is convinced it's Heather (Leah Purcell). And they have enough to arrest her as they wait for DNA confirmation.

Richard (Hamish Michael) represents Heather at her bail hearing, but when the full face morphology results arrive, the identity of Ash's killer is revealed to be someone who was not only in front of Janet the entire time, but someone with access to her children, and with whom she is now trapped inside the empty Commission building. Now Janet has to fight to save her children and herself

When Bianca (Anita Hegh) is forced to shoot Brett Bonar (Andrew Henry), Janets (Marta Dusseldorp) best lead to the firearms, and finding Ashs killer, disappears.
Meanwhile, Bahman (Simon Elrahi) and Sam Nobakht (Rahel Romahn) are intercepted trying to leave the country with $30,000 in U.S. currency. They say they were returning to Iran to pay officials to keep Sam out of the military, an obligation, with ISIS pressing on the Iran-Iraq border, that could prove fatal. They say the money was for helping to import the container, but didnt know it held guns, and when they tried to pull out after Todds death, Brett shot up their house.
Bretts flat contains an arsenal of weapons and DNA results tie him to the murder of George Healy - meaning he knew Ashs killer.
Janet is at the Corruption Commission under investigation for perverting the course of justice - the result of a text she sent Richard (Hamish Michael) advising that drugs left in a common area make ownership impossible to prove. It seems someone has Janet in their cross hairs.
Too paranoid to name the person he owed money to, and by extension who ordered Brett to shoot him, Felix (Stephen Hunter) leaves Bianca a puzzle to solve which points to the name of the man responsible. And the answer suggests its bookie- turned-businessman Bao Long (Jason Chong).
Heather (Leah Purcell) discovers from Simons phone that he and Robbie Carter (Josef Ber) met on HookUp, a gay dating app. Is it all starting to fall into place?

The Assassins are a legend in the Muslim world. Part freedom fighters, part special forces and part Islamic fundamentalists, they were set up back in the 11th century in today's Syria around the time of the First Christian Crusade in the Holy Land. They were an elite sect of highly trained killers who often operated behind enemy lines, in deep cover, assassinating military leaders and rulers. Their covert tactics and ruthless operations spread fear and terror across the medieval world. Assassinations were primarily carried out with a dagger, which was sometimes tipped with poison. As their legend and infamy grew they started to carry out their assassinations in public spaces so as to instil terror in their foes. They would often assimilate themselves in the cities, palaces and fortresses of their targets and, over time, stealthily insert themselves into strategic positions. Although many scholars believe that they died out after the Crusades, there are those who say that they simply went 'underground' with reports of their activities in the early 20th century. Certainly, the Assassins have inspired, and possibly given rise to, many of today's Islamic fundamentalist groups, including the Taliban in Afghanistan, Al Qaeda and even ISIS. The training methods, secrecy, ruthlessness and covert operations of all these groups are directly the result of The Assassins.

With its origins in the Samurai culture of 17th century Japan, the Yakusa are one of the most infamous, secret and feared of all Asian secret societies. They call themselves a 'chivalrous organisation', and are notorious for their strict codes of conduct and highly organised structure, with an estimated 100,000 members today. They started as hired security men for local festivals, markets and gambling dens, before slowly growing in power and prestige. Today they are a vast organisation and their leaders, known as Oyabun, maintain strict rules within the ranks. No disloyalty is permitted. Yubitsume, or the cutting off of a finger, is a form of penance or apology. Upon a first offence, the transgressor must cut off the tip of his left little finger and give the severed portion to his boss. Its origin stems from the traditional way of holding a Japanese sword. The removal of digits starting with the little finger moving up the hand to the index finger progressively weakens a person's sword grip. Many Yakusa have full-body tattoos known as Irezumi which are often "hand-poked", that is, the ink is inserted beneath the skin using non-electrical, handmade and hand-held tools with needles of sharpened bamboo or steel. The Yakusa are a very powerful organisation in Japan who's tentacles of influence reach the very highest levels of power. Drawing on their rich Samurai heritage they believe they can operate above and beyond modern laws and government, bringing what they see as a purer form of justice and control to a corrupt country.

Hitler and the key officers of the Nazi High Command were all members of three main secret societies which had a strong belief in the occult; the Vril Society, the Thule society and the Ahnenerbe. The Vril Society was based on a novel written in 1871 by Edward Bulwer-Lytton called The Power of the Coming Race which talks of a superior subterranean master race and the energy-form called "Vril" which powers UFO's from hidden bases beneath the arctic ice. It sounds crazy but Hitler, Himmler and other leading Nazis took it very seriously. The Thule Society was named after a mythical northern country from Greek legend which was the origins of the "Aryan Race", also thought to have been the mythical Atlantis. It had about 2000 members, insisting on intense loyalty and secrecy, as well pure white blood, "untainted" by any other race, or colour. This belief in the Aryan race and its connection to Atlantis led to the foundation of the Ahnenerbe by Heinrich Himmler to research the archaeological and racial heritage of the Aryan race. It conducted experiments and launched expeditions in an attempt to find the lost city of Atlantis, and prove that mythological Aryan populations had once ruled the world. Although the Vril and Thule societies, as well as the Ahnenerbe were officially disbanded at the end of World War ll, there are reports that they continued for many decades afterwards through surviving Nazi officers in Europe, America and South America. Today, it's believed that several Neo-Nazi groups made up of descendants of former German soldiers, politicians and new, younger recruits, keep the flame alive, with regular meetings, and the same beliefs.
