Police sergeant Pete Fitzhaven's wife Sadie's inconsistent whining and some bruising, although accompanied by soothing denial, convince her over-assertive sister Rebecca Kessfield it's time to put an end to it an any cost. Missing Pete is tracked down to the yacht where Rebecca holds him at gunpoint. While the SRU tries to prevent a bloody outcome, Pete overpowers Rebecca and realizes he needs to stage a plausible defense. Meanwhile the boys differ on what to tell their kids when bullied at school. Written by KGF Vissers

Okay, you're gonna go to a friend's place, she's gonna get a lawyer, and you're never gonna see her again.
Sgt. Pete Fitzhaven: Rebecca...
