Fern sells party drugs at a devil-themed party, in order to pay off Callan's debt to a drug dealer. But it's a bad batch; one young woman's hallucinations are so potent that she throws herself off the balcony to her death. At the same time, another young woman, Xantia, is murdered in an inner-city parkland. The two deaths will prove to be connected in an unexpected way.

Harrow attends the rave scene with Dass and conducts an on-the-spot internal autopsy of the woman who fell to her death. It's unauthorised, but if he can find traces of the contaminated drugs, it may save another young woman who took the drugs and is now in hospital in a critical condition. But he comes up short.

Meanwhile, Harrow's car is identified amongst the social media uploads from the party; Fern had 'borrowed' it. Detective Jillian McCloud, from the drug squad — who has a long-held grudge against Harrow — flags Fern as a suspect.

Harrow finds a brief respite from his parental anxiety when Dass visits him on his houseboat.

Meanwhile, fortune seems to smile on Harrow when Pavich orders the river bones be cremated. It's his chance to break the chain of evidence and put the case behind him. But a new analysis from Fairley prompts Dass to recalibrate the time-of-death window on their John Doe to within the last twelve months.
