Total Control on ABC – In a strategic play, Paul (Wayne Blair) introduces a Bill in the House of Representatives to amend the Criminal Code.

What should be an easy point score on national security turns to chaos when Alex (Deborah Mailman) introduces a series of surprise amendments which would raise the age of criminal responsibility. Paul finds himself caught between having his leadership credibility destroyed and alienating the State leaders and media barons.

A blindsided Damien (Anthony Hayes) goes on a rampage, further alienating Matthew Kohli (Fayssal Bazzi) and the other moderates in the party. A key faction abstaining from voting might give Rachel (Rachel Griffiths) the numbers she needs for the alliance. In the midst of the action, Charlie (Rob Collins) rushes to the hospital – Dee (Rosie Lourde) is in labour.

With her youth justice reform measures officially passed in the House, Alex has finally carved out the legislative change she’s been fighting for since the beginning. But when Alex appears before the press she’s confronted with allegations of corruption. Marion’s (Catherine McClements) story has broken and Rachel didn’t give her any warning.
