Storyline

Helen's desperation grows as she wades deeper into her imprisoned husband's world of drug trafficking despite constant police surveillance of her house and realizes that she, out of blind loyalty to her husband, will not only have to take over his drug smuggling business to support her expensive and lavish lifestyle, but also use his contacts to try to get him released. In London, Jack's continuing trouble with Caroline causes his marriage to disintegrate as his daughter refuses to go into rehab which leads to her running away from home, and his wife emotionally begins falling apart. In Pakistan, Fazal, now working as Tariq's chauffeur, observes the drug lord's mastery of the drug trafficking system. Written by matt-282
