As Jack Irish discovers more about the deaths, he isn’t sure who he can trust.

Jack meets up with Rory, who admits that she and her husband are staying together for the sake of their children, but their marriage is over. With trepidation, Jack calls Linda in Manila and offers the story of mistreated international students but Linda isn’t interested. Orton promptly changes the subject by proposing to her.

After some help from Denis Bontempelli, Jack gets in to see Javed in detention, but a traumatised Javed speaks only in Urdu. As Jack signs out, he notices that Javed had another visitor — Rory. Jack confronts Rory, who reminds him that she has a duty to her patients, first and foremost. Jack doesn’t want to see her anymore.

Harry, Cam and Jack attend the races and begin to see a pattern — horses finishing first, second, or third are being disqualified after the fact, bumping other horses up into a place finish. Harry asks around and a mystery woman has been sighted in each instance. Cam tracks the woman down and discover her true identity — Ricky Kirsch.

Stan struggles without Cherry Blossom while the Youth Club are happy to have the menu restored to the old classics. To Jack’s surprise, Gus comfortably fits in with the old men at the Prince of Prussia.

Jack discovers that the unknown man who was shot in front of him at the restaurant had a list of names — that includes Lakshmi and Javed. Simone looks into it and finds out that the crest on the back of the list is from the Science Faculty at Melbourne University. Turns out the man Jack met was a scientist called Martin Reed, who was awarded a scholarship from the Next Horizon Foundation.

Ajeet reveals to Jack that Meritus has managed to track down Lakshmi’s ashes, but Ajeet doesn’t trust Anoushka. Jack has the ashes tested and Ajeet is furious to discover that the ashes are not human. After Ajeet confronts Anoushka, he and Jack narrowly escape two thugs and Jack sends Ajeet home to the safety of India, promising not to give up the search for his daughter.

Linda calls Jack, bored with her current assignment and agrees to investigate further on his behalf in India. That night, an apologetic Rory pays Jack a visit and they kiss — the start of something new.
