Doctor Marcie Grainger becomes his prime suspect, the sister of Lee, murdered by one of the Tilly brothers in 1993. More body parts turn up while Marcie is in police custody. Although the evidence shows Marcie is responsible for the abduction and beating of Paul Tilly, she didn't kill him.

Gradually his condition deteriorates; more gaps appear in his memory. Mapenzi begins to take notice, firstly when Cal refers to her as Mak (short for Makena) her previous male persona, then to comments regarding his deceased wife.

The first episode ends with a gruesome and revealing discovery. The second episode deals with finding the real killer, firstly by visiting the darker side of Liverpool, the traffickers and the dealers.

Vince is related to one of the local drug kingpins, although he has abandoned the family business, he is responsible for the death. Vince has to turn himself in to save Marcie's father from being killed by Paul's brother.
