Episode 13

Written by Ro Hume and Ernie Dingo
Directed by Kate Woods

Fearing he will die the family gathers. Even Ricky is allowed a compassionate visit, and it is while they are all gathered together at their lowest point that Vincent discovers the final unexpected piece of the puzzle, which answers once and for all who killed Wilga Carmichael, and sees Ricky finally cleared.

But Vincent's struggles with the system aren't over. His career is put on the line when he is accused of beating up a white prisoner under his care in the cells. Discouraged, he resigns, only to realise when Ricky is re-arrested, that opting out of the system is not the way to change things.

Furious at this injustice, the people of Binbilla make a defiant stand against authority, not knowing that the chaos they precipitate will lead to the death of a staunch ally.
