In Heavy Metal the boys get the deal to knock down the bridge put into place however their workforce leaves a lot to be desired having been brought in somewhat illegally from Eastern Europe. The boys payday is supposed to come from selling the bridge to a businessman in Malaysia but Grainger reveals to Oz that the deal has fallen through leaving the magnificent seven very much in the lurch.
Some more good back story with Barry revealing how Hazel had left him for another woman and a chance for the fabulous Bill Nighy to come to the fore as the odious Jeffrey Grainger (Grainger is the scheming MP whom Oz had met during a spell in prison!)
