Gemma and Terry are now private investigators. Bad ones. But, as luck would have it, they have in their possession a valuable collector's piece that the murderous Bunnyman will stop at nothing to acquire. Gemma lays a trap for The Bunnyman while Terry heads up his own very low-quality investigation.
