Storyline

Shine and Sergeant Thatcher arrive at the theatre where the fugitives are hiding but Mimi manages to put them off the scent. As a ploy to trap Nathaniel Jackson and Reid find a corpse and using wolves' teeth mark it with the same injuries as were found on Nathaniel's victims but Shine realizes it is fake. Newspaper editor Rachel Castello, believing in Reid's innocence, prints a story portraying him as a vigilante hero, which does not go down well with Shine. Shocked by Shine's bullying treatment of her the honest Thatcher seeks out the fugitive trio to offer help whilst Dove finds a hiding place for his brother. Written by don @ minifie-1
