Plot Overview

A tense investigation is launched into Ferris's claim of a fire department notice on the grow-up house.

With the racetrack in his possession, Manning informs Dominic that the Prime Minister is coming to the city. Dominic hopes to get him to tour the red light zone, but it's currently endangered by a group of citizen protesters who claim to own property in the area.

Leary brings Kosmo and Finn into the paedophile case when he finds that it's tied to an unpleasantly familiar face of theirs.

He has Rita look into it and none of the names on the committee's website own property in the district, including Mina Basra. Dominic confronts Billie about the committee being a front group. She denies it, but agrees to try to do something about it.
  • While Mick doesn't believe he can link Dubreau to Dennis and Garth's murder, he believes his paedophile ring is still active, but warns Messner that he's the chairman of the board of the new federal initiative for a youth centre. However, Norton approaches Mick about Dubreau cooperating with the investigation. Mick meets with Manny Zappata, who claimed Dubreau spiked his drink.
