Mackenzie (Emily Weir) had lately been put through her paces by PK (Ryan Johnson), a mysterious and affluent gambler who informed her during a VIP poker night in Salt that the House had lost and she owed all of the players $100,000. He’sorted it out,’ telling her that the only way she could repay him was to spend the night with him.
Mackenzie has been attempting to persuade PK to throw another event so she can take all of the earnings and use them to pay off Salt’s debt. Nathan (Ryan Panizza) overheard the exchange and came to the restaurant to warn her, only to be told to leave by Mackenzie.
When Mackenzie closes the restaurant for the night and Dean (Patrick O’Connor) is waiting at the bar, two men enter and immediately begin wreaking havoc on the establishment, tearing it up, brandishing a knife, and keeping both Mackenzie and Dean hostage. Dean soon recognises the gravity of the situation and instructs Mackenzie to follow the men’s orders.
Tane (Ethan Browne) and Felicity (Jacqui Purvis) are shutting the gym and making their way up to the bar for a nightcap as the siblings kneel on the ground while the thugs continue to damage the eatery. The two men react quickly when they see the mayhem inside — Dean attacks one thug, while Tane rushes after the other.
While the men brawl, Felicity and Mackenzie flee for safety, and the thugs eventually appear to have lost the upper hand. Tane, on the other hand, stays slumped on the floor as they leave, and Felicity rushes to his side. Everyone realises he’s been stabbed when they see blood on his hands and stomach…
Mackenzie starts dialling for help, but Tane stutters, “No cops.” Dean grudgingly agrees, knowing that if they figure out why Tane was stabbed, Mackenzie’s poker nights would be exposed, and she may face jail time. But how will Tane receive medical attention if they are unable to contact authorities? Will he make it?
