As Michael Drury fights for his life, an investigation is launched. Investigating officer Angus MacDonald refuses to believe that Rogerson offered Drury a bribe, but Commissioner Avery prevails and Rogerson is charged.

Meanwhile, Rogerson continues his business association with Neddy Smith, planning a massive drug import, but their plans are uncovered and the shipment cancelled.

Flannery is becoming a liability, and plans are made for him to "disappear". At Rogerson's bribery trial, he manages to gain acquittal, but later Williams admits he ordered the shooting of Drury with Rogerson's help.

Lanfranchi's former girlfriend, Sallie-Anne Huckstep is making trouble for Rogerson, and her body is subsequently found in Centennial Park.

As justice closes in on Rogerson, he names Neddy as an informer in a television interview, and an attempt is made on Neddy's life. Days later, Rogerson is charged with misconduct and thrown out of the force.

With his "friendlies" gradually being removed from the police force, Neddy desperately tries to make the most of what is left of his "green light", but lands in more trouble, when he kills a man in a brawl.

On bail, Rogerson pays a last visit to Neddy in his hideout, as police prepare to storm the house. Neddy Smith's "green light" has finally gone out.
