When one of Gerry's informants returns to England and provides him with new evidence, the team re-open the case of a 1987 bank robbery where one of the bank employees was killed. The prime suspect was always Ray Cook, but the police could never get the evidence to charge him. Cook's alibi has always been that he was with his dying mother at the time of the robbery but the team find evidence that brings their basic premise into question. They also determine that the bank robbers may have had inside help, including that of certain police officers. Written by garykmcd

This episode rocked

This was a great episode since it was the first one I saw in full and it was so tits.

When police informant Pete MacKintyre returns to the UK for his son's 18th birthday after 17 years on the run, he leads Gerry to fresh evidence about an unsolved armed robbery in which a bank cashier was shot and killed. The police have long suspected the man behind the robbery to be known criminal Ray Cook, now a C-list celebrity and angry to be in UCOS's radar.

With MacKintyre's help, Gerry recovers a shotgun which Brian discovers is the audio of the robbery. The gun is a link to Ray Cook – but with a watertight alibi of being at his mother's deathbed on the day of the robbery, Cook is proving difficult to nail and even more difficult to track down to interview. Jack and Brian interview Geoff Lyons, a former security guard for the bank at the time of the robbery and an ex-copper. While Lyons is keen to point the finger at Cook, it becomes clear that this was not a one man operation.

Elsewhere, suspicious that Sandra is going on a date with DAC Strickland, the team follow her to the Hero of the Year awards. There, Gerry is confronted by an old colleague, Rob Petty and can barely disguise his disgust that Petty is attending as a nominated hero. There is clearly history between the two men but how will Gerry feel when his boss invites Petty to contribute to the case?
