When a man shot dead on Australia Day marks 19 shooting deaths in the past 15 months, the attorney general asks Janet to head a royal commission into gun crime. Before she begins work on the commission, Janet finishes up an inquest into the suicide of an army corporal suffering from PTSD.
After the shooting at Elaheh’s house, her family says they have no idea who would want to harm them, but Janet and Andy believe they know more than they’re letting on. Meanwhile, Janet is summoned to court by her sister-in-law.
Reeling from what the ballistics report revealed, Janet lashes out at Andy, who knew all along about the gun that killed Ash. With their key witness to the illegal gun operation murdered, Janet suspects a mole in the commission. Lina convinces Elaheh to make a public appeal.
When the team discovers a link between Todd’s murder and the PTSD case, Janet calls in Lance Corporal Parker and Major Hamilton for questioning. Janet meets with her paternal donor, but his position on the embryos is not what she had expected.
After discovering the cargo of illegal firearms, the commission allows the shipment to continue in hopes of finding out who will pick it up. Under political pressure from the media, the attorney general demands a report on the royal commission’s progress, despite Janet’s protestations that they aren’t ready.
The commission finds a connection between Major Hamilton and Robbie Carter, the social-media face of crime victims. The attorney general gives Janet an ultimatum—either resign from the commission or risk her reputation in a public hearing.
With the commission suspended, the gun shipment is finally picked up. Janet secures damning evidence for the people involved, but without a clearance from the anticorruption hearing, all the work the commission completed could be in vain.
After returning from maternity leave, Janet King is assigned to prosecute a case involving police commissioner Steven Blakely, who is accused of giving his cancer-stricken wife a fatal dose of morphine.
King’s heavy workload forces her to spend more time away from her family. Erin and Owen try to coax a reluctant witness into testifying against a biker accused of murder. Without a body or a strong motive, the Blakely case stagnates until King’s boss, Tony Gillies, pushes it to trial.
Diane finally breaks down and makes a statement but does not admit guilt. A strange development in the Moreno case intertwines with Diane’s involvement in the Blakely case. Erin deals with traumatic flashbacks and deliberates whether to testify in court, which could put her life in danger.
Andy questions Danny Novak after he is seen on surveillance with Blakely on the day he went missing. Richard takes it upon himself to look out for Danny’s daughter, Tatum. Lina attends compulsory psychological counseling as part of working for the Department of Public Prosecutions.
A media scandal sweeps through the department when King and Erin are accused of having an affair, and the judge from the Moreno case is brought in to investigate. After a terrifying experience, Ash and the babies leave home for their safety.
King insists that Moreno is involved in Blakely’s murder, but Andy urges her to be more prudent with charging him. So King hones in on Blakely’s daughter, Maya, to gain more information about Moreno. Lina attempts to resign, but Tony refuses to allow it. With Ash and the kids still in hiding, King misses her family.
A new body is found, adding complexity to the Blakely case. The attorneys try to convince Maya to testify against Nelson again in court. Lina and Andy struggle with fertility issues, and Owen has a suspicious appointment.
Andy and Jack confront Blakely’s son, who reveals startling information. Danny Novak is arrested and questioned. A new and volatile suspect materializes as King races to piece together the case and protect her family.
When senior crown prosecutor Janet King (Marta Dusseldorp, A Place to Call Home, Jack Irish) returns from maternity leave, she is thrust into the spotlight on a controversial case involving a senior-ranking police officer. While building cases around a series of suspects, King clashes with Owen Mitchell (Damian Walshe-Howling, The Reef), a cunning colleague who will do anything to win. She also contends with Chief Superintendent Jack Rizzoli (Vince Colosimo, The Great Gatsby), who has strong convictions about the direction of the investigations and regularly challenges her authority. As King makes connections between seemingly unrelated crimes, she unearths a scandal that could damn both the police and the judiciary—and put herself and her family in danger. Dusseldorp delivers an award-winning performance as a brilliant “crownie” struggling to balance life at home with her commitment to her job in this multifaceted courtroom drama.
