Times are hard and Marty and his apprentice Aidan attempt to redirect a power line to the Gallagher house to get free electricity. The plan goes disastrously wrong and a power cut plunges the whole estate into darkness.

In-Depth Episode Synopsis

Warning: the below synopsis may contain spoilers

An air of menace builds on the streets and people retreat indoors. But the girls gather at the Maguire house and as the drink starts to flow, hidden truths emerge.

Jamie agrees to a lock-in for the guys at the Jockey, where Frank accepts the challenge to re-enact The Hare and the Tortoise, but loses something valuable in the process.

Chesney protects the shop from lawlessness, but pushes himself too far in the process, while Marty, charged up by having half a million volts pass through him, believes he's been spared for a purpose.
