DOT (V.O)

Did he ever mention any other

names? Politicians, coppers?

Dot with Hari at the warehouse where Rod hung

himself.

Dot smashes himself in the mouth with the cuffs.

And then he kicks Hari.

SUPER CAPTION:
PRODUCED BY PETER NORRIS

CUT TO:

At AC-12 H.Q.

HASTINGS:

Single-handed, he brings in an AFO

(shakes Dot’s hand)

Welcome back, Dot...

Dot at home watching the news. His phones start

ringing. Then another. Then another.

Lindsay Denton on the news. The banner reads

JURY VERDICT:
DETECTIVE ACQUITED. Former police

officer released after retrial.

LINDSAY (V.O)

I’d just like to get on with my

life.

Dot looks like a rabbit caught in headlights.

CUT TO BLACK:

SUPER CAPTION:
DIRECTED BY JOHN STRICKLAND

CUT TO:

INT. AC-12. LIFT/WAITING AREA/OPEN-PLAN OFFICE.

NEXT DAY.

The lift door opens, revealing Lindsay wearing

smart clothes and that same look of defiance,

escorted by a PC. The PC escorts Lindsay through

the access gate towards the meeting room. She

strides with calm aloofness.

From their desks, Steve and Kate look up and

see. Their jaws drop (figuratively).

Gill and Hastings take their places, the former

neutrally to the side, the latter

confrontational on the far side of the table.

The escort PC brings Lindsay in. Gill stands to

greet her but Hastings doesn’t.
