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. Written by
