Under the new leadership of Commissioner Jellicoe, the Met are finally beginning to crack down on the Soho porn industry, as well as their own internal corruption. Chapple announces his intention to retire, aiming to escape discovery. Meanwhile, the police have begun to quietly investigate the activities of Austin Donohue, interviewing a now bankrupt John Edwards in the process. Edwards gives the police Nicky's name in relation to a missing folder of Donohue's that they believe would prove incriminating. Nicky has remained in Newcastle, now living in the decrepit high-rise flat that he first found for Tosker and Mary in 1966. He runs a radical magazine alongside his factory job, and is now a keen photographer. He has also reconciled with his family, as they together experience the Three-Day Week enforcement. Geordie is released from jail and is bent on seeking revenge on Benny Barratt, whom he discovers has fled Soho for Spain. He seeks comfort with Julia, telling her that not one person visited him during his three years in jail. Eddie Wells asks Felix to run his campaign to become the new MP for their local constituency at the upcoming election; despite losing selection as the Labour candidate to a wealthy businessman, Eddie runs as an independent Labour candidate regardless. Nicky offers his support but Eddie, not forgetting Nicky's personal politics, tells him he does not want his help. During the election campaign, Nicky slowly begins to rekindle his relationship with Mary, who has become a councillor, whilst Tosker's business and other interests are pulling him away from his family. When Geordie discovers that Barratt has temporarily returned to Soho, he procures a gun in an attempt to murder him. Before he is able to, Barratt is arrested by the police, who procures tapes from him that are instrumental in revealing all about the corruption and alliance between the police and pornographers. Before either of them are able to successfully retire, both Salway and Chapple are arrested, along with many other officers. Austin Donohue and John Edwards are also arrested, the separate investigation having finally proven their illegality. Despite a smear campaign against him by the local Labour Party, Eddie wins the election by a tiny margin. Geordie returns to Newcastle completely unaware of the election and by chance finds his way into Eddie's victory party, where Nicky, Mary and Tosker are all in attendance. For the first time in a decade, the four friends are together again.
