Alex hears that young Hales has died in prison, endorsing her conspiracy theory, and when Mackintosh wants the case closed even Hunt starts to agree with her. After a man who runs an animal research lab and his little girl are injured by a bomber Alex visits dogged anti-vivisectionist Robin Elliot, serving a jail term for a similar attack seven years before. He seems unnervingly aware of Alex's position but offers no help when the police are told to expect more attacks. After he has starved himself to death Alex learns from his effects who is continuing his campaign. The resultant shoot-out brings her closer to recalling her life in the 2000s but a celebration of her being saved coupled with the fact that Shazz and Chris are getting engaged is soured by the news that Mackintosh wants Hunt transferred to Plymouth.
