-McGonigle's luck? It's just ran out.
-You'll never find him.
-Why would you say that?
-Because...he has a fake passport.
Gavin McDonald. Adrijan, put that name on Pulse now.
I want that name out there. Airports, ferry terminals, Interpol.
You think I helped him?
Well, what should I think? Brian calls you the night he absconds.
Is there anything else you're not telling me?
Please. I don't have another phone!
You promise me, Rachel. You promise me!
Yeah, I swear.
She's my friend.
No, no, no, no. You say nothing.
Do you understand me? Nothing.
Bag it and get it checked immediately.
Rory? We need to speak to Sharon.
Needs ironing. If she's going back tomorrow.
Do you think she's ready?
I don't know, but it's what she wants.
It's what she says she wants.
She needs to go back sooner or later.
Maybe we should give it a few more days, huh?
All she's doing is sitting up there thinking about him.
She's never going to get him out of her system if she stays here.
Yeah, but as long as she's up there, I know she's safe.
Brian is not going to turn up to the school.
How do you know? I mean, he's got nothing to lose now, has he?
You have to let him go, too.
She'll soon start seeing Brian for what he really is.
Why, what'd she say?
Nothing much, but she knows that he's not coming back any time soon.
Yeah, I suppose.
If you were him, would you come back? Exactly.
Yeah, but even if he doesn't turn up, what about the kids in school?
I mean, they're going to start asking her questions, aren't they?
We saw what the reporters in court were like.
Look... I just want to keep her with me for a few more days, OK?
Even if she doesn't stay in the house,
she can come with us to the Neptune.
Great. Smack bang next to the Garda station. That's a great idea.
Look, I'm sorry, I just want to keep her near me for the next few days.
I don't know, Niamh, until...
Until they find him? In a week?
Maybe a month? A year?
I promise. Until things get back to normal, OK?
Whatever that is.
This can go in the wash, so...
It's good news.
Nikki and the lads went through his bedsit there
and they found his lock-picking kit.
I told youse.
They're checking it - should be able to prove it was used on your door.
You'll be off the hook.
Now all we have to do is get him back from France.
Is Sharon with you?
Yeah. I've just told her.
Tell her I expect her back to work tomorrow.
Will do. How's it going there?
We've done door-to-door - no-one's seen anything.
We need to know what happened here after he left the family home.
-Nah, it's just a dummy camera on the building. Just for show.
Maybe he was going to meet someone.
Whoever sent him those texts?
I'll call you back.
Nearly 300 in gas.
Have you been leaving the heating on, Conor?
Why is there nothing but crap in this house?
When are we getting the gear?
-Did you see this?
-Don't pay it!
Why didn't I think of that?
It doesn't matter. They're not going to do anything. It's ages till they send a final demand.
What do you think this is?
I'll be back at 11.
Hey, hey, hey. No, no, you can't.
I don't make money sitting on my arse, Conor.
I have to work to do.
I have your drugs to pay for on top of these bills.
And don't go trashing the bleeding house again - do you understand?
The charity run was on that night. Find out what route they took.
See if they were running down his street.
There might be an amateur video.
-Someone might have caught something on their phone.
-Yeah, or they could've caught him or his car.
Guys, he's still out there somewhere.
What about the place in Kerry he rented before?
I checked. The landlord has new tenants.
There's no sign of McGonigle.
Keep thinking outside the box.
We need to follow anything
that throws light on where he went, and why.
Would you look what the cat dragged in?
-Welcome back, Sharon.
Are you back, back? Cos Paudgie hasn't been the same without you.
Guys, can we hold the craic for the pub?
OK. What's the story on the fake passport?
Nothing. He still hasn't used it.
OK, so it's possible he hasn't left the country?
He'd want us to think he had.
Right. So we have five hours unaccounted for.
I want to know where he went after he left Jules's house,
until the CCTV camera caught him driving south
on the N11 at 22:44, OK?
And I want to know where that fake passport came from.
Yeah, I can do that.
If someone's helping him, I want to know who they are,
-and I want to know why.
Right, if anything comes up, let me know. Adrijan, not now.
I was going to pay it...
God's sake, Ange!
I've kind of had a few things on my mind.
We got a red letter this morning.
What if they cut us off?
Look, I'll sort it.
-Look, don't forget.
Have to take this. I'm late for a call.
Where is it?
Did you check the box?
Yeah, it's about the charity run.
I need to find out what route they took...
Well, is she there?
So that was less than an hour.
Your honeymoon period.
She knew that was my egg. I was saving it.
I'm not guilty.
You've some neck on you.
Sorry, not you... Is she not?
Well, can you get her to give me a buzz when she gets back?
-We're supposed to be trying to find McGonigle.
-What was I just doing?
-Give him back his egg.
How... How can I?
In fairness, he can't prove that she took it.
-Was it you?
-Look it at him. He's got guilty written all over his face.
Come on, Addie, own up.
I didn't touch his egg.
I wouldn't put it past you.
Are you calling me a liar?
No, he isn't.
Would you relax? Maybe you just forgot you ate it.
I forgot I'm a mental case, is that it?
OK, OK. It was me.
I took the egg.
What was that about?
Come on. It was a joke.
Yeah, and it's always on me.
No. You're the one who's making a big deal out of nothing.
Please, Sean, leave me alone.
What's going on?
Is it the headaches again?
It's on her desk. Garda surgeon's medical report.
Came in this morning. She hasn't said a thing.
Well, maybe she hasn't read it yet.
Of course, why would she? It's only my future on the line.
Yeah. I'm sorry. I know.
No, you don't.
There you go.
Ah, you're a good man.
-Oh, hold on, I owe you a tenner.
-Ah, thanks very much.
Have a nice day.
-Yeah, what is it?
-Are you on your way home?
-Da, please? I'm in a bad way here.
I'll be back at 11. I've got another job to go to, OK?
I can't wait till 11, all right - I'm really hanging here.
Conor, I'm working!
I know, I know, and I'm sorry.
It's just... Look...
Can you get the gear on your way back?
It's just, I've got all the stuff ready here
and you can drop it in, then head back to work and I'll do it myself.
Da, please? You're going to be ages!
Look, I'll be as quick as I can, all right?
Please, Da! I'll send him a text, tell him know you're coming.
It's the same place down by the Ridge.
You'll be in and out, I promise, all right?
Da, I'm begging, here, all right? I'm begging!
OK, OK, I'll pick it up on my way home - but listen to me.
You do nothing. Do you hear me?
All right, OK. Just don't be long, all right?
Just... Just call him.
If he has a fake passport, why doesn't he use it?
What are we missing?
Those texts he got at Jules' house...
Second phone is key. Who's his little text friend?
Just cos she says she doesn't have a second phone...
Oh, I don't think she knows what he's up to.
I just saw her there in the cafe.
I think she's as much in the dark as we are.
-Do you think?
-Let's get her back in.
I mean, if she's in the dark, maybe she's waiting for him
to make contact, but he hasn't.
Maybe we could spin it - "We're worried about him".
-"Concerned." Make it sound like he could be in danger.
Go for it. Bring her in here for a quick chat.
Do you want to be there?
No. After yesterday, I'll be keeping my distance.
That number that kept coming up on Brian's call log?
It was his solicitor, Mark Wall.
Oh, great! Well, I doubt he'll be much help.
You never know. I'll give him a shout, sound him out.
Any news on Adrijan?
He knows you have the report.
Does he now?
You're leaving him hanging.
Oh, cos I'm just twiddling my thumbs here?
He needs to know.
I have a few more pressing matters.
We all want what's best for him.
Then let him back out there.
I'll get to him when I have a chance.
You Conor's da?
How's he doin'?
Have you got it?
No, I just hang around this kip for the craic!
Just give us it, will you?
Flash the cash first, my friend.
Looks like you could do with a little snifter yourself.
Just come on, will you?
I think you have a fare...
-Say hello to Conor for me, you bleeding muppet.
Pick up the phone, pick up the phone.
Yeah, Rory? The charity run?
Well, the bad news is McGonigle's street wasn't part of it.
Can you just give me the headlines?
The good news is traffic was diverted that way.
So...that would include buses.
So we could be talking about onboard camera footage after all.
So we need to ring Dublin Bus right away, then, yeah?
Already done. There's a lad ringing me back in about three minutes.
What are you looking so chuffed about?
Put Smugface in his place. Bus security footage down Brian's road.
Buses don't go down his road.
They did that night.
Hi, Liam, can I have a word?
It'll cost you.
Look, we're still trying to track McGonigle's movements
and we're up against a bit of a brick wall.
I was hoping maybe Rachel could pop over for a quick chat?
She's not in great form.
It's tough, but it'd be really helpful
if I could just run over a few things with her?
After the day she had yesterday?
All right, look, just give us a few minutes to get organised, OK?
Sure, and I won't keep you long.
That's super. Thanks, Liam. I appreciate that.
-I'll see you then.
Right. Mr Wall has nothing to say. Helpful as ever...
Anything in his bank statements?
Next to him I'm a millionaire.
Maybe he cleared it out.
There was nothing to clear out. Suspended without pay for months.
It's good enough for him.
There's a debit card payment here to a phone shop last January.
If he was buying a second phone he'd probably use cash.
-He might still have bought it there.
I could swing down, show them a few photos,
see if they remember anything?
No. Give them a call first. See what the payment was for.
You were talking to Dublin Bus about camera footage?
They're sending it over this afternoon.
We were lucky to get it.
Apparently, they wipe it every three days.
Well, good for you, Paudge. Great work.
It was good, what you told us about the other passport.
We put the word out, you know - all the airports, ferries,
Interpol, the whole lot.
The only thing is, he hasn't used it.
So we're kind of back to square one.
Which is why I have to ask you about the phone again.
For crying out loud! She doesn't have another phone!
Are you for real?
He could be in trouble.
This isn't just about us catching him - it's about his safety, too.
Yeah, well, all I'm concerned about is the safety of my daughter, OK?
Come on, Rach...
Let's get you home.
I'm sorry, taking so long getting to you.
It's like a madhouse out there.
Would you like your peer supporter here, Adrijan?
I can arrange it for you. It's no problem.
How about Sean?
We both know why we're here.
I've had a read of this, and it's very thorough.
It talks about symptoms - cognitive, physical,
I guess you already know that.
What's the verdict?
They're saying you're going to have to give up active duty.
Just like that?
I'm so sorry, Adrijan. I don't know what to say.
Is that it? Are we done?
You can stay within the force,
if you like, or you could apply to be excused on medical grounds.
They will look after you, Adrijan.
I'm talking full pay until retirement age,
and then you get a pension.
So I can find myself a nice little nursing home, is that it?
So you can do whatever you want.
Whatever I want?! You know what I want!
She's not at school. She's not answering her phone.
I've looked everywhere, but I can't find her.
-None of her friends know where she is.
I think Brian has her.
Mel McGonigle has been gone for nearly four hours.
She has taken her passport.
She's either already with her dad or she's on her way to join him.
We're putting out an alert for her.
We need to give this everything that we've got.
-Paudge, I want you to start talking to airports and ferries.
She's taken her passport so there is a good chance we can track her.
-I'll check her phone.
-Great. Sharon, I want you to go to the school.
Here's a list of her friends. I want you to start with the top three but obviously talk to everyone.
Ask them did she say anything, anything about meeting Brian,
going away, anything that could help us at all.
One silver lining.
If we find Mel, there's a good chance we can find Brian, too. Right.
Did you get the gear?
-Where is it?
-I haven't got it.
Huh? What are you talking about, you haven't?
You chicken out, did you?
-I need it, Da!
But you promised!
Will you just stop, will you?
-I got robbed!
The money bag, everything!
But what about my fix? What about my fix, Da? Where is it?
Where's my fix? I need it. I need my fix!!
Stop. Stop. Just stop.
I need my fix!
Da. Wake up. Da. Da, Da.
Da, get up...Da! Da, get up. Da, get up...
-Do you know if he's on any medication?
Is your father on any medication?
I... I don't know. I don't think so.
-Please just tell me he's going to be OK!
Hey, lads, has anyone seen Adrijan?
You don't know?
Well, he walked out.
After his meeting with Nikki.
Why? What's up?
The results from his Garda medical. That's what his meeting was about.
Went well, then?
Come on, Kosos, answer your phone.
Just...go after him.
There's too much going on.
We'll cover for you.
Don't trust us to hunt down McGonigle without you?
-Honestly, Sean. Just go get him, bring him back.
-But be quick.
He could be anywhere.
I know where I'd be.
OK, here's the list of the most recent calls Mel's made. Thanks.
Conor, where's Dad?
Mam, Mam. You can't go in.
Just...keeled over... I tried...
What do you want?
Well, this isn't going to help.
They said I needed time off. That's what I'm doing.
Same again, when you're ready, and bring the bottle.
No. You're coming back with me now.
You can't just walk off the job.
Thanks, but he doesn't want that.
No - what I don't want is you...
nagging me like you're my wife.
Oh, so you want to get the sack?
Go back to your station.
We need to find McGonigle.
I don't need to do anything.
What if he's abducted his daughter?
Give me the bottle.
Will you please... please, just leave me alone.
Should we get Stephen, just in case?
One of his teachers is driving him over.
Didn't want him arriving home...
Why can't they just let us know?
They're still working on him.
How long's it been?
It's... I really need something. I really need something.
Not now, Conor.
Just hang in, OK?
Tommy's still in intensive care.
Looks like his heart.
Did you talk to Mel's friends yet?
I was just finishing this.
What exactly are you doing?
I was checking Mel's phone records.
Sean was going to do that.
I was giving him a hand.
Why? Where is he?
He had to slip out for a minute.
I bet you he did.
Give me that list - I'm going to get one of the other lads to do it.
And when I tell you to do something, you do it.
What if you get better? Get a clean bill of health?
Do you honestly think they'll let me back on the road?
So drowning yourself in a bottle of vodka, that's your answer?
Yeah. Eastern European stereotype.
Eastern European doofus.
Doofus? Is that the best you can do?
-They can't all be gems.
-One would be nice.
Oh, come on. This isn't you.
Maybe it is now.
You burst a gut to get into uniform. You just can't give it all up.
All I wanted was a job with a good pension.
Just...talk to me, Adie.
Talk to me.
He was so proud.
My father. I sent him a picture.
He...he framed it on the wall.
Had a big unveiling, "Look at my son."
He'd be proud of me now all right,
sitting behind a desk for the next 30 years.
Could be worse.
You're still one of us.
Not really, no.
Is that it? Pep talk over?
Pretty much, yeah. You want to drown yourself, go ahead,
but I'm not going to sit here, watching you do it.
We've a job to do - you, me, and everyone else up there,
and today that job is to find Mel McGonigle.
You know, I stuck by you,
ended up in hospital because of you,
and this is how you repay me?
By turning your back on me? On the rest of us?
You know, you're right, we're probably better off without you.
Here. Knock yourself out. Make your dad proud.
She's always been closer to him than me. Daddy's girl.
Is there any way they could have been in contact since he left?
Oh. She wouldn't tell me.
She was getting calls before this,
from him, behind my back. Who knows what he said to her...
what he promised her?
Does she have her own computer?
She has my old laptop. I'm sure it's still in her room.
OK, we'll need to see that.
I'm going to need photos... her height, weight, what she was wearing.
You hear about...
..estranged fathers taking their kids...
and when they can't have them...
You can't think that way.
You don't know him.
I don't know him.
I know it's not easy,
but I promise, we'll do everything in our power, OK?
What's wrong with you?
Shouldn't you be in bed or something?
What are you talking about?
They said you were sick.
Mr Folds, he said you were here with Conor.
It's your dad.
He's had a bit of a turn.
They think he's had a heart attack.
Well, is he going to be OK? I...
Mel's laptop. There's a password on it.
I've got a guy coming over from IT.
Be nice to him.
Like how? Share my lunch with him?
Oil the wheels, Paudge. Oil the wheels.
As long as that's all I'm oiling.
Any sign of that camera footage from Dublin Bus?
No, I'd say it'll be a while yet.
Do you think they might have something?
We'll soon find out. Get them to get their skates on.
It'll be here when it's here.
Fine. I'll do it myself.
You found him?
Yeah. I found him.
Sorry, Sean. I really need to get up to the school, talk to Mel's pals.
She'll have sent someone else up by now.
Any sign of McGonigle's phone?
No, not in the last few days.
Here. You still need to track who else Mel called or texted.
OK. What about social media?
Like looking for two needles in a haystack.
-Hello, Red Rock Garda Station?
You're joking me!
What is it?
-Terminal two? And she's with you there now, yeah?
-Have they nabbed Brian?
They found Mel.
What about Brian - Brian McGonigle?
Or McDonald? Gavin McDonald?
They're checking the plane now.
We've done a preliminary ECG.
Your husband's suffering from heart arrhythmia.
It's when the heart beats too fast or too slow.
Is it bad?
It sometimes means that the heart can't do its job properly.
The blood supply to the rest of the body can get cut off.
Is that what happened?
We don't know exactly.
We're going to keep him in intensive care.
We have more tests to run.
We'll let you know as soon as we know anything else.
Thank you, Doctor.
I would stay close by, though.
There's a canteen over the way.
If you like, I can send someone over to get you if we need you.
Thanks. We're fine here.
Fine. I'll be back to you.
Is he going to die?
Spain? Might've known.
He used to go there every August,
coming in here with his all-over tan. Bringing those sweets..
Mel was boarding a flight to Barcelona.
Tell them we need her here as soon as possible.
They have her in transit already - she won't be long.
-As for Brian, they said they'd check the plane and call me back.
They used to rent a villa down there - somewhere south, along the coast.
Flashy git. RINGING
Hello, Red Rock?
Yep, go ahead... Yeah. OK...
All right, thanks for checking.
He wasn't on the plane.
All right, maybe he's already there.
Well, if it isn't the Scarlet Pimpernel.
You decided to come back, then?
Shut the door.
-Are you drunk?
-No. I had two drinks - that's it.
You don't ever walk away from me, do you understand?
If we're having a conversation, you finish the conversation,
-you do not walk away halfway through...
-And you never walk away from your work.
-It won't happen again.
-I need everyone at the top of their game, Adrijan.
-I know. I want to help.
Get a coffee
-and get back to that desk and help us find McGonigle.
How many selfies does one girl need?
Is that Mel's?
'Tis, yeah. Fancies herself something rotten.
Chip off the old block.
How did you get it open?
Your technician lad rang me.
So what have we got?
Nothing, so far.
I got that Dublin Bus footage.
Anything on it?
There's over eight hours of footage from the onboard bus cameras
from Brian's street the night he disappeared.
I'll take a look at it now.
Yeah, no bother.
You're looking for McGonigle, but keep an eye out for anything that catches your eye.
See something strange, shout.
You'd think it was all his idea. Captain Courageous.
Oh, Mel! Mel, Mel!
It's all right. It's OK! It's all right.
You OK? You all right?
You OK? Yeah?
Take your brother outside, Conor.
Please, Conor, now.
It's always a bit of a shock
when you see someone with all this stuff hanging out of them.
Nothing I haven't seen before.
Different when it's your own, though.
We've given him a lot of painkillers.
He'll be out of it for a while.
What happened to his hand?
I don't know - I was going to ask you, actually.
He's a small fracture in there.
Two of his ribs are cracked as well.
That's what I thought.
But his bruising - looks a couple of days old.
Come back to me, Tommy.
Please...come back to me.
Why were you boarding a flight to Barcelona?
Answer the question, Mel.
Was it to meet your dad?
Did he call you?
Mel, did he call you?
He'd be here if it wasn't for you.
OK... Did you plan to meet him there, in Spain?
I was going to look for him.
You don't have to believe me if you don't want to.
He didn't do what they're saying.
I'm not having this argument again.
You guys used to holiday there, is that right?
A few times. He really liked it.
He used to say he was going to retire there, didn't he?
Is that why you thought he'd be there?
It's a nice place.
We had a lot of fun there.
Good times. Water parks and that, us being together...
What do you mean, just you and your dad?
What are you trying to say?
It must have been hard, having your dad go off like that.
He didn't just go off. He wouldn't walk out on us.
Your father lied to us, Mel.
Stop! Stop it.
Hey, it's going to be all right, OK?
How do you know?
A heart attack, because he was stressed.
Because of you.
And Mam? All she does is worry about you.
What if he dies? What if he doesn't come out of this?
Look, Steve, I know I haven't been the best brother, all right?
I know that, OK? I know that.
All right, but he's going to pull through - he's going to make it.
Do you hear me?
This is Da we're talking about, all right?
Ma, why don't you... Why don't you take Stephen home? I can stay.
No, Mam. Please, all right, I'm fine...
Look, please just let me do this.
Let's go, Stephen. We'll be back this evening.
Did he ever say anything to you about where he was going?
Did he phone you?
Has he tried to contact you at all?
We asked the local police to check that villa you used to stay in.
He's not there, Mel.
-Then where is he, Mum? Where is he?
