Alex, the newly elected member for Freeman, controls the balance of power in the Australian parliament, along with a group of five other Independents - including Rachel. If they can work together, they'll get to decide who becomes the next Prime Minister of Australia. So, Alex and Rachel return to Canberra as political equals and unlikely allies. But with Damien Bauer and Laurie Martin both making their own plays for power, Alex and Rachel must work quickly to organise their fellow Independents. Alex finds a surprising ally in Paul Murphy, but the loyalty between the Independents is shaky, and Rachel - with help from the opportunistic Nick -ì is playing her own game. Leo finally uncovers the identity of Alex's troll and he's someone in her political sphere. So, while the country waits to find out who will be the next Prime Minister, Alex sets out to confront the man who made her life hell.
