Gene Hunt just wants to find and lynch the obvious "pacifist hippie scum" suspects. Luckily Sam insists to look for evidence and thus discovers that Jimmy's dearly missed father also lead a secret life, which costs him any sympathy from bigot Ray. During the investigation, Tyler realizes he's returned to the very block and house where he lived for a while in between his dad's many moves, wondering if his youth is his mission. A guru inspires the theory his supposed future background may be the actual illusion he's about to wake up from.
