Directed by Brendan Maher

Though he struggles with wanting revenge for his mother's death, a conflicted Lee sneaks out of Wirrawee and returns to his friends in Hell.

Work inside the prison camp is getting harder every day. Tension within the Maxwell family reaches breaking point as Chris and father Daniel face unspoken issues of abandonment. Umar continues to press Rachel to help him poison the Colonel.

The teens are besieged with leaflets demanding their surrender. Both Homer and Corrie want to know where the chasing soldiers are. Kevin and Fi follow them, leaving Robyn, Lee and Ellie alone.

Robyn, hurt by the noticeable relationship developing between Ellie and Lee, decides to surrender to the enemy. But before she can, she befriends a soldier who has deserted and offers to help him.

Meanwhile at the camp, the Colonel forces the prisoners to construct an actual prison and Rachel, who now knows the truth about the Colonel, finally agrees to help Umar. It's not long before the opportunity to carry out their plan arises, will they succeed in killing the Colonel?

Homer and Corrie sneak into an enemy outpost and are almost caught stealing supplies. Kevin initially saves them but in a violent chase they barely escape with their lives. Their relief is short lived when the deserting solider who has been abandoned by Robyn spots them returning to Hell. He takes aim and fires with devastating consequences.
