Robin accepts a dinner invitation from Al, learns that everyone on the force knows about her own rape when a teenager, drinks too much, and stays the night. By the next night, she's a pub chatting with one of her assailants, who may not recognize her. Her response changes her status on the force, and sends her again to Johnno. Matt mistreats Anita and goes back to Paradise to menace the women. Evidence proves that Wolfgang didn't kidnap Tui, who remains missing as the weather chills. Written by <>
