David and Janet are faced with a high-profile scandal when two parliamentary cleaners accuse the Attorney General of drugging and raping them. Ben, Lina, Erin, Richard, Tatum are the only ones with access to the file and when it is leaked to a journalist on the night of the DPP Christmas Party, the resulting media feeding frenzy puts them and their secrets under the spotlight.

Tatum is ready to dump Conrad for bringing cocaine to the party, until he asks her to marry him. Lina and Janet attempt to convict a cold-blooded, teenage murderer whose online demon avatar appears to provide a convincing alibi. Erin struggles to not get emotionally involved in the case of a disabled teenager, allegedly pimped by her father to a fellow truckie. Richard's first day in court is a series of disasters topped by his burqa-clad witness storming out and Tatum discovering that he's been sleeping in the office.

When Tatum invites Richard to live at her flat, Conrad is far from pleased. Ben's dinner with his grandfather almost ends in violence, when his grandfather confronts an aggressive driver over a disabled parking space. Secret lovers, Lina and Andy, argue over the gruesome murder of Ray Stone by the 'Boltcutter Babes' — a case that will leave Erin questioning what justice really means.
