With a murderer on the loose, tensions are running higher than usual within the group of the risen. James (Patrick Brammall) and William (Rodger Corser) join forces in order to seek out justice and find answers to why Elishia (Genevieve O’Reilly) was targeted and who could have done such a thing.
Phil (Rob Collins) has completed his task, and seeks refuge with Sarah (Emily Barclay). It seems as though Sarah has a task of her own that she must get done. The mysteries keep mounting, and it brings us further from uncovering the truth.
Reeling after the death of Elishia, William vows to bring her back from the dead. It seems to be common place in Yoorana after all, so it’s not an impossibility. He is taking it harder than anyone else, considering their intimate relationship it comes as no surprise. He will do anything to find some sense in the chaos. He would do anything for the love of his life.
Owen (Luke Arnold) and Kate (Emma Booth) are back on speaking terms, although it may be more trouble for the risen. James discovers that Owen has a bad record, but he isn’t the guilty party they are desperately searching for. Just a convicted murderer on parole, the wrong place at the wrong time. Everyone has their own sob story, but it adds to the dynamics of each character.
Paddy (Ned Dennehy) and Beau (Aaron McGrath) visit the town’s museum. He uncovers the truth of what happened after his immediate death. His son, the man who murdered him, continued on his legacy and channeled his feigned anger into acquiring land and abolishing the aboriginals who were used as scape goats in his father’s death. Every piece of history is one big lie. Paddy decides to take matters into his own hands, which is only going to get him into more trouble.
Kirstie (Hannah Monson) sends Charlie (Sean Keenan) in to check out the open house and confront Vicky (Belinda McClory) about her connection to his dear friend. Vicky is bothered by all his questions, while Kirstie is remembering more of her former life, the dots begin to connect. Their tragic pasts are intermingled and the truth brings forth more painful memories.
William’s fingers are beginning to grow back, the regeneration process is actually working. This could be the breakthrough that could save them all. He seeks out the aid of Professor Heysen (Pernilla August), who seems to have insider information on the risen, and why they may be targeted. With her help, perhaps Elishia will be resurrected after all.
It’s unraveling and there isn’t anything they can do about it.
With only two episodes left, anything can happen.
