Tara is thrilled to have a new phone; a present from Dad for her birthday. But the SIM- card doesn't seem to work properly and the colour's not quite right, so she tries to exchange it -- and finds out that it's stolen. Tara is devastated.

Lincoln is questioned by Pinder about events in Queensland. Pinder accuses him of lying — particularly in reference to a man named Garrett Toop. Lincoln claims never to have met him; Pinder knows otherwise. He accuses Lincoln of being involved in Toop's murder.

Disturbed by Pinder's allegations and desperate to learn more via the Internet, Lincoln breaks into the office of a colleague named Dr Isaac Ulrich. Lincoln stumbles across Isaac's criminal psychology research, and is appalled to read of certain links between criminal fathers and their offspring. Lincoln worries that his own criminal tendencies will be passed on to Mitch and Tara.

Bec's left alone in the house; she attempts to clean it up and turn it into a decent home for the family. But her work is interrupted when a strange man tries to force his way into the house.

The man turns out to be Warwick J Darmody, the owner of the house. He's a mate of Pinder's, and he's supposed to be in rehab. He checked himself out of hospital early, and now he's back to reclaim his home.

Tara's fury at her father spills over into a playground incident of terrifying intensity. Her mum and dad are called to the school, and Lincoln is forced to confront the ugly truth about his own behaviour, and its effect on his children.
