Storyline

Sean is unsettled to see Rex, the father who abandoned him and Emma when they were toddlers and is determined to get his revenge by ripping him off. He devises a plan involving supposed buried treasure from a plane that crashed in 1940 on land Rex is aiming to sell. An expensive bracelet is planted for Rex to find, along with items of wartime memorabilia - but Rex proves to be far less greedy than imagined and prepared to share the treasure with Sean. This gives the lad cold feet about fleecing his father and it is up to Emma to pick up the baton of revenge, leading to a family confrontation - and possible reconciliation.

Conning ones father
26 January 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As the episode opens the gang are executing a con which should net then an easy £50,000 the mark has the cash and has been distracted and all that is left is for Sean to switch cases and walk away; nothing can go wrong... or so it would seem. Just as he is about to make the switch Sean spots a man he recognises and follows him into the lift but doesn't talk to him. It soon becomes clear why Sean was so distracted, the man was his father who abandoned him and Emma when they were young children. Against the advice of the others Sean is determined that they will con his father out of the amount of money he owed in child support. As his father is trying to sell an derelict building plot Sean decides to convince him that their is treasure there from a plane shot down in the war. It all seems to be going well until he asks his father for a finder's fee and instead of paying him off he says he can't let him go with such a small amount but will give him half the earnings from the treasure when it is found... he seems to be genuine.

I've deliberately left out the details of the con as they are half the fun of the show. Danny Webb does a good job as Sean and Emma's estranged father and it was fun to see Eddie get a chance to help the team even if once again he was left feeling somewhat used.
