Ben is devastated when his grandfather Alfred is killed — brutally assaulted and left to die over a parking space dispute by the other driver, Cooper. Ben is angry when he finds out that Tony and Richard have been given the brief.

When Ben fails to identify the culprit in a line-up, Richard is left with scant evidence to press the murder charge. But the discovery of a deleted app on Cooper's phone gives them enough to prosecute.

External barrister Rhys Kowalski is brought in for the Stone/Mervich case, and chooses Erin over Lina as his instructing solicitor.

Tatum listens to wire-taps for the Hammel drug case. However, a potential lead turns out to be an embarrassing misunderstanding. Lina clashes with her brother Tariq over his behaviour. He in turn accuses her of abandoning her Islamic roots.

Conrad is jealous of Tatum's friendship with Richard — until she tells him that Richard is gay.
