Father And Son: Episode Three

Michael (Dougray Scott) makes an offer to Connie's (Sophie Okonedo) boss DI Conroy (Ian Hart) - he will give the police inside information on drugs and gun running in exchange for a reduced sentence for Sean (Reece Noi).

But Conroy tells him there's a catch - the information will only be accepted if it comes from Sean. Connie and Michael are nervous, this is a risk - a 15-year-old boy giving sensitive information on organised crime. But Conroy assures them he will look after Sean with a witness protection scheme.

When John O'Connor (John Kavanagh), Michael's father, suffers a heart attack, Michael has to go to his home to retrieve his medication for the doctors. But whilst there, Michael discovers that his father gave the police information on him years earlier - information which may have led to Lynn's murder. Michael accuses Connie of being in on it, she denies this but how can they now trust DI Conroy?

Meanwhile, Michael's girlfriend Anna (Flora Montgomery) has returned to their home in Ireland where she is visited by two detectives - they know all her movements and their manner is menacing.

Michael continues with Barrington's (Terence Maynard) escape plan. Conroy reveals to Connie further facts about Lynn's death, but is this the truth? And Sean's worst fears are confirmed when he uncovers photos of Stacey on Barrington's mobile phone.
