Storyline

In the final episode of the series, memories of Marlow's childhood, his dreams and the events in his re-imagined novel collide with present day reality. Marlow continues his sessions with the psychiatrist, Dr. Gibbon and recalls his return to his Dad after the death of his mother. He reveals the lie from his school days that lead to a classmate, Mark Binney, being severely beaten by their teacher. The events and characters in his re-imagined novel are blended into his childhood memories, his fantasies about his ex-wife and her lover, the outcome of the novel and his medical condition.
