Total Control on ABC – Alex (Deborah Mailman) is diagnosed with a health condition that she chooses to keep secret from those closest to her. Alex is reluctant to book the lifesaving surgery she needs and continues to shoulder the stress of her job.

The sentencing hearing for the cab driver who attacked Alex and Charlie (Rob Collins) yields a disappointing result, putting pressure on Charlie’s relationship with Dee. He continues to throw himself into work, pushing an important initiative that will improve health outcomes for First Nations Australians.

Rachel (Rachel Griffith) agrees to an interview with her old friend Marion Beaumont (Catherine McClements) – what she assumed was a story on her new party, quickly becomes an interrogation on dodgy campaign finance linked to the think tank run by her reprobate campaign advisor. The Independents, including Alex, are now one headline away from political destruction and it’s Rachel’s fault.

Eddie( Wesley Patten) stands up for a stranger and is detained by the police in the process. The ensuing media storm buries an important policy announcement for Paul prompting him to start making moves against Alex.
