Mackenzie (Emily Weir) has just agreed to host a high-stakes poker night for mysterious newcomer PK (Ryan Johnson), a wealthy gambler. Mack is desperate to try anything to get out of debt, despite Felicity’s (Jacqui Purvis) suspicions about the stranger.
When PK returns to Salt, he sits Mackenzie down and tells her the truth: he doesn’t want Felicity to be there. He doesn’t want any trouble because she’s the sister of a cop. Mack tries to persuade him to reconsider, but PK stands firm.
Mackenzie eventually summons the courage to tell Felicity the truth, and she is incensed. What exactly does this PK guy believe he is? She marches down to the station, genuinely concerned for Mack’s safety. She informs Cash that she requires a background check, but he refuses. He can’t make an exception for his sister!
After overhearing the conversation and becoming bored with small-town policing, Rose (Kirsty Marillier) offers to assist Felicity. Felicity refuses, making Rose suspicious of the kind of trouble Felicity could be in.
Mackenzie is relieved when Ziggy (Sophie Dillman) and Tane (Ethan Browne) show up to support her as the poker night begins. Felicity, on the other hand, is at home, worried about what’s going on. She approaches the front door, but Nathan stops her (Ryan Panizza).
He tells her she shouldn’t go out, and when she refuses, a large burly stranger appears. She won’t leave her house till the night is done — she’s a prisoner in her own home.
