Facing a murder charge, Squizzy's out on bail, thanks to a few quid slipped to the Bail Justice. He tracks down the Crown witness convincing him that his eyesight is unreliable. Detective Piggott can only watch in dismay as Squizzy is acquitted. But he resolves that one day hell bring down the cocky little so-and-so.

Angus approaches Squizzy about a quick job to produce some urgent cash but Squizzy is under constant police surveillance now and needs to lie low to wait out the heat. With pressing expenses Angus pulls a solo bank robbery and gets away with 400 pounds! Sadly he is caught shortly afterwards and sentenced to fifteen years in the roughest prison in Melbourne.

Meanwhile, Squizzy has a new plan — another jewellery store robbery, but this time with the added bonus of giving the cops a small peace offering. Of course it does mean setting up the 2IC of Long Harry Slater's Narrows Gang as fall guy but that's a sacrifice Squizzy's prepared to make! The elaborate scheme unfolds according to plan except that the cops leave their run a little late and fence Henry Stokes is arrested along with Slater's man and charged with major theft.

Squizzy admits he miscalculated and attempts to set things to rights by bribing the trial jury, resulting in a surprising acquittal. However Long Harry is deeply suspicious that Squizzy and Stokes have pocketed the lion's share of the takings and has both men severely bashed. Moreover, Slater declares that his end of town is offlimits to Squizzy and his gang.

Snowy comes back from fencing the bulk of the jewellery robbery takings in Sydney to a city divided. And Dolly too, is distressed by the animosity — she loves her Leslie but his crazy plans have led folk practically to war! She takes herself over to Long Harry's Narrows Gang hang-out to talk some sense into them all, taking in a bit of Dutch courage as she goes. But Long Harry and his boys send Dolly back to Squizzy scorned, humiliated and brutally raped.
