Frankie Drake (Lauren Lee Smith) and Trudy Clarke (Chantel Riley) continue to rely on Mary Shaw (Rebecca Liddiard) and Flo (Sharron Matthews), who are always ready to lend a hand snooping through police files or sneaking a peek at an autopsy report.

Meanwhile Flo finishes her in-class portion of medical school and looks forward to her clinical training in-hospital, all while juggling a long-distance beau and the varied demands of Drake Detective cases. As Trudy's love life with Bill Peters (Romaine Waite) heats up, she also excels at her investigative work, taking on some truly hair-raising risks as she works to solve cases. And finally, Frankie continues to lead the team with aplomb and ingenuity, while exploring a romantic connection with boxer Moses Page (Emmanuel Kabongo).
