Further details

Frank's adult life has come full circle, rat run to rat run. Jamie worries Karen may uncover the truth about Gloria. Ruby wants to be accepted as a Maguire, while Aidan is sick of being treated like the idiot child.

Frank finds the brick he carved into all those years ago with his 35-year-old time capsule. But the overwhelming worry comes from the realisation that nobody knows where they are. Desperate and worried, Karen searches for clues, while Gloria wrestles with her guilt over Jamie.

Discovering Shane's plans, a search party is swiftly formed, but time isn't on their side and decisions have to be made whether to involve the authorities.
