The Boss tells Mark that he must take full responsibility for Lindy and all her future policing decisions.

The Walking Wounded
Episode 12.04 (461)
Amy is suspicious when a woman's baby is found dead in his crib, apparently the result of SIDS. It is the second child the again-pregnant woman has lost in suspicious circumstances and comes only a week after another SIDS death in town — and the details are identical. Could this be a copycat case?
Jonesy and Susie head off to make a simple arrest for a drive off (driving away without paying for petrol) but find themselves cuffed together and held hostage in an onion packing shed by the offender's over-protective mother. New Senior Constable Alex Kirby arrives to save them, but the rescue doesn't go quite as planned.
Chris has a problem guest, an old lady who has checked in, paid by cash, but now won't leave her room — and owes money. She refuses to give her identity, and Kelly is set the task of finding out who she is and where she came from.

When they meet the father, Danny O'Keefe, both Tom and PJ recognise him as a likely gangster, and immediately assume his associates were responsible.

Tom's jaundiced view of Danny O'Keefe is confirmed when this suspect is found bashed and the flashy businessman is found murdered in Melbourne.
Jonesy and Susie follow up on cars being stolen from the railway commuter car park and find themselves in a police pursuit with a young teenager who jams on the brakes right in front of them, causing a collision in which their airbag inflates.

Meanwhile, Joss feels sorry for a drunk he and Kelly find in the street and returns him home instead of charging him, overcoming the reluctance of his Russian speaking mother. The next day Joss finds himself in front of Tom — it turns out the drunk was not the elderly woman's son.

While door-knocking at the Mini Mall, Kelly and Joss are called to another crime in a hardware store. A young female shop assistant in a tight T-shirt with a provocative slogan on it is alleging a customer sexually assaulted her. Kelly is outraged on her behalf, and is determined to get to the bottom of the matter.

One Sick Puppy
Episode 12.09 (466)
PJ, Amy, and Garth are investigating the brutal murder of a young woman when a second body is discovered, killed in a similar style — a serial killer is at work in Mt Thomas.
The only common denominator between the two girls is their masseur, Colin McReady, a sleaze with priors for indecent assault. He makes the mistake of running after his initial questioning by police, but is caught and is being questioned when a third body turns up. But this one is a young male schoolteacher, and the masseur is out of the frame on two counts — his unavailability for the crime, and the sex of the victim.
Meanwhile, Kelly and Joss are called in by a local vet who is concerned that a badly burned dog in her care may indicate that its young owner is a potential killer.
Susie receives her promotion to Senior Constable but Jonesy is miffed that his hasn't come through at the same time. While initially believing it to be a simple oversight, Jonesy begins to suspect Tom has intervened to sabotage his promotion.

Amy, PJ, and Senior Detective Garth Henderson find a new link between the last two serial killer victims — their psychologist, Bill Lapscott, who runs a therapy group for victims of sexual abuse.
Garth has difficulty buying this link, because it doesn't include the first victim; however Amy infiltrates the group to check out the other participants. While in the therapy group, Amy is forced to relate a childhood sexual abuse story and Bill recognises she is not play-acting, despite her later assurances she made it up.
Bill and Amy become close and he invites her to dinner. But as Amy gets closer to Bill, Garth starts to suspect him of being the killer.

The serial killer is still at large in Mt Thomas but examination of the latest murder victim reveals enough dissimilarity to indicate it was not the same killer. While PJ and Tom try to track down the copycat killer, both Amy and Garth return to their original suspects. However, Amy's suspect turns out to have an alibi. Such is the antagonism now between Garth and Amy that she is more determined than ever that psychologist Bill Lapscott is innocent. But is she right?
PJ witnesses Garth losing his temper with Bill, and when some quiet digging reveals that Garth was also a childhood victim of sexual abuse, PJ puts him on the suspect list against Tom's better judgment. But when Amy learns of Garth's past, she is furious, and angrily confronts him for not telling her this when she told him about her own abuse.
