Emil is experiencing prison hardship. After solitary confinement, he now needs to find his place in the prison cell among the Thai prisoners. Gro is shocked by the news about Emil, and she has no other options than to ask Frederik for help. Frederik is in two minds about Gro's cry for help, as he refuses to be mixed up in Emil's affairs - but, then again, he is after all his younger brother. Signe's industrial hemp farming prospects seem fine, but being part-time mother for Melody together with the rest of the Grønnegaard inhabitants puts pressure on her; and she still has to prove her worth within the hemp trade.
