Amid the chaos, Rab suffers a cardiac arrest and tragically passes away. Stevie rushes to provide assistance, and forensics uncover crucial evidence—a scarf with blood splatter that implicates Craig McQuarrie in Dixie’s murder. Under interrogation, McQuarrie admits to the crime but insists he acted alone, leading to Lee’s release.

At The Loyal pub, Lee finds himself shunned by the very community he once led. His sister, Mags, turns her back on him, holding him responsible for Rab’s death and other transgressions. Meanwhile, Happy finds a measure of peace as he confronts Robin Graham, who could have prevented the bombing that took his father and brother’s lives but chose to protect his informant. Happy forgives Graham, gaining a sense of closure.
