In addition to arranging VIP events for affluent gambler PK (Ryan Johnson), Mackenzie (Emily Weir) has been playing a risky game with illegal poker evenings at Salt, with disastrous results. Now that PK and his men have left her in fright, Dean (Patrick O’Connor) reassures Mackenzie that he “dealt with it” and is assured that they won’t show up at any time.
This doesn’t do much to assuage Mackenzie’s concerns, and when Logan (Harley Bonner) informs her that PK has been discovered dead on the beach, her concerns become even more. Mackenzie queries Dean about whether “dealing with PK” entails killing him. Although Mackenzie isn’t the only one he needs to persuade, her brother tries to reassure her that they didn’t go that far.
Dean is summoned to the station by Cash (Nicholas Cartwright) and Rose (Kirsty Marillier) so that he can be interrogated about a murder. When Ziggy (Sophie Dillman) has her bright morning disrupted by her lover, who claims he is at the police station being interviewed, this doesn’t exactly go over well. Ziggy rushes down there in a state of panic, and Cash wants her to confirm Dean’s location on the day of the murder.
Cash and Rose are sceptical of Ziggy’s claims that he was with her because she is behaving jittery and they have already spotted grazing on Dean’s knuckles.
They decide Dean is a suspect once they learn about his criminal record and do some investigating. The murder weapon was a wrench, the coroner then reports. They are now aware of what they are looking for.
Ziggy is shocked when the police show up at her door later. Her alibi was disproven, thus they have a warrant to search the location. Dean paces around her car as they approach it. He adamantly denies any involvement, but when the cops open the boot and remove a bloody wrench, Dean may need to make an explanation.
