Missy and Joshua Floyd are Australia's most newsworthy couple: she's a bestselling author, and he's facing treason charges.

Meanwhile, Cleaver — having been ditched by Barney — is lamenting the lack of briefs coming his way, especially when Nicole is constantly reminding him about the cases Barney used to bring in.

Barney and Scarlet's marriage is disintegrating, but she's happy being back at work. But she does get a frosty reception from David Potter who accuses her of working for the enemy. However, soon enough, her opinion of her boss is drastically reversed and she seeks advice from David. Over a drink...

Cleaver tries to help his son Fuzz, who is still in anguish over his latest failed romantic endeavour, and they both end up in the confessional. But for Cleaver, there's no relief. He's under pressure to meet the emotional and physical needs of his sugar mummy, Kirsty, and he's being cleverly outplayed by Harry-sorry-David in his defamation case. But then Joshua shocks Cleaver and the Sydney bar by inviting Cleaver to represent him in the case of the decade.

Cleaver now has a lucrative brief, secures his own chambers, and is mentioned in America Today as "leading human rights lawyer". Barney's back on board and things seem poised to go right — moments before something goes terribly, terribly wrong...
