Gypsy car thief Jed dies after Hunt has pursued him in a high speed chase and Hunt and Mackintosh put out a cover-up story to exonerate Hunt. Drugs are found on the corpse and the whole camp is arrested including an old lady who tells Alex's fortune and recognizes her parallel existence. The deceased was known to abuse his pregnant girlfriend Alva and Alex believes that seemingly altruistic local Dr. Battleford, the camp's G.P., fed Jed lethal pills, as he was in love with Alva and is the baby's father. She is eventually proved to be right and Alex and Hunt deliver Alva's child. An even more bizarre alliance is formed when Hunt buys Alex's view that Hales was a pawn in a conspiracy to kill officer Irvine and joins the Masons to gain Mackintosh's confidence.

Masonic Mysteries back in the 80s
9 August 2015 | by (Swansea, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Really unusual start to this episode, the team are tracking a car, where the driver seems out of control, Gene tries following the car which comes off the road and crashes into a Gypsy site. Instantly the team have an unease with the gypsies. A definite conspiracy seems to be going on between Gene and Mack, is it real or not? You really get a sense of growing mistrust between Gene and Alex. There is a wonderful part when Paola Dionisotti does a tarot reading for Alex, really well acted scene. The episode has a definite masonic feel to it, and Gene's initiation is intriguing. A satisfying ending, with more intrigue from the man who knows more about Alex's situation, very very good episode, which ends with a classic 80s tune A flock of Seagulls, Wishing. The series continues to feel more grown up somehow then the first series.
