Storyline

Taviner is forced to cover up Smithy and Young's indiscretions when Gold questions the three of them on how the Area Car ended up in the hands of a teenage joyrider. Following an extensive search, Taviner finds the car atop a local multi-storey, having been covered in graffiti. Taviner uses a message received on the gang leader's mobile phone to set up a second operation. He borrows a 'stinger' from traffic and lies in wait at the location of the next joyride, and sure enough, his prime suspect turns up with another stolen car in tow. Meanwhile, Ackland convinces crime wife Julie Lewis to help sting a big drugs bust, but Julie's husband Eddie is shot dead when one of the dealers pulls a gun.
