Storyline

Frost and his men assist RSPCA officer Christine Moorhead in smashing an illegal dog fighting ring but its organizer, local gangster Gerry Berland, eludes them. One of Christine's helpers, Brian, is stabbed to death by Berland's thuggish son Sean, who believes he set the police on the ring,and Christine recognizes him and his accomplice,Neil. Berland arranges alibis for the boys and though initially appalled, his wife Sally colludes with him as he has always run her life. She persuades Neil's honest and horrified parents to go along with the lie. Having failed to warn Christine off, Berland sends a thug, Lisowski, to torch the RSPCA unit with Christine inside it with her rescued dogs. Meanwhile a mysterious criminal is duplicating unsolved crimes on Frost's books from years earlier and, as he goes to rescue Christine, Jack finds,chalked on his drive, 'You Die Next.'

Insp. Jack Frost: It's Berland, right on time. That's his van, with the star attraction of some kind. How long should we give 'em?
Christine Moorhead: Let them start. Ten minutes.
Insp. Jack Frost: Right.

Part One of a Worthy Conclusion
4 October 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There are two stories working here. Someone on a mountain bike uses a crow bar to assault people as they pass through an underpass. The second, and the more extensive story, has to do with a hoodlum who runs a dogfighting ring. When Frost investigates, they arrest everyone and free the dogs. However, the mastermind isn't there. He has a way of getting away with things. He is, at best, a disgusting creature. He has involved his son in his activities and mentions that a young man may have blown the whistle on their activities. The son and a friend decide to beat this kid up, but end up stabbing him to death. The father, an intimidating figure, begins a process of intimidation to get his son and the friend freed. A woman at the RSPCA becomes friendly with Frost after she ID's the two kids in a lineup. She and Jack then become targets of the bad guy and his henchman. Her dog shelter is set on fire and she is nearly killed. This episode sets things up nicely. We are privy to the horrible guilt of the young men who dare not tell their story because their prospects would be ruined.
