Whilst Brian faces disciplinary action for a death in custody from his past the rest of the team discover the gun that killed drug-trafficker Christian Highsmith in 1998. The same gun killed a young boy, Danny Bossano, in 1982 in Gibraltar, a port of call for the ships on which Christian allegedly hid the drugs. The UCOS team go to Gibraltar to meet Superintendent Cruz, the local cold case chief, who believes Danny was part of the dope-smuggling gang. The fact that the gun was army issue also leads to the evasive commander Adam Sinclair whilst Sandra quizzes casino owner Harry Truman, who had been a friend of Christian. Gerry and Steve visit Truman's casino but accidentally get locked in a shipping container whilst shipping agent Gordon Fletcher, an associate of Truman, is found dead.

The shot of of Sandra in the car yelling at Gerry and Steve, from the boys' point of view, may not have been staged: the runway for Gibraltar Airport really does cross the main road into town. When a plane comes through, arms come down to block the road (similar to a railroad crossing) to stop the pedestrians, bicyclists, and cars from crossing the runway. This arrangement places GIB on many "world's most dangerous airports" lists. See more
Brian and Gerry are trapped in a shipping container, which appears to be owned by NYK shipping line from the interior number (NYKU>>>>). The shot of a container on a truck going down the motorway then shows a brown TAL container and finally they emerge from a red OPDR container. See more
