Season 12 - Episode 22: Homecoming

Episode 22: Homecoming

Sorry, this episode is no longer available to watch on Demand 5.

Find out why

In the season finale, a dinner for the sheriff's re-election campaign is interrupted by the discovery of a triple homicide nearby. A drug dealer, his bodyguard and Veronica Gilmore, the wife of the sheriff's friend Jack Gilmore, have all been brutally killed.

When the team discovers that a hockey stick bearing the name of Gilmore's team is his wife's murder weapon, suspicion immediately falls on the sheriff's buddy, but the shock revelation of a secret medical condition rules him out. There was no way he had the physical capacity to kill his wife.

The rest of the evidence pointing to Gilmore is so strong, however, that there is only one other possible explanation: someone is trying to set him up, but who? As two of the victims were involved in drugs, the team theorises that the murders were somehow motivated by the drugs trade.

When a narcotics cop reveals that Gilmore's wife was a confidential informant, their suspicions are confirmed and another wrinkle is added to the case. Only someone within the police department would know Mrs Gilmore's status - and a close examination of a gun used in the crime points the finger of guilt at a villain from seasons past...

    Took 2 hours to watch this episode how pathetic. How long has this been a problem and still no action. Channel 5 must really respect their audiences.

    Channel 5 please sort out the subtitles, it's nearly been a week and before u know it they won't be able to show this episode anymore. It's really not fair on us people who have a hearing disability!

    that is tense, surely not the last episode in series I hope! Good to see T D's character's family shown so much as he is always portrayed on phone to his wife, as such a family man. Then E Shue's character turned up and the chemistry seemed very strong between them with their past history, I wondered if it was going off on a slight tangent there with him straying. That would have seemed unlikely. Great to see Jaclyn Smith again. The end of this was a bit over action packed, hope we don't have to wait to long for the next instalment!

    Loved it as I am looking for Roz from Frasier anyway. Or is it Daphne? Never mind! Both excellent actresses. Have revelled in Olympics as stuck in bed. Roll on Paralympics! Will sue BBC if I have to have yet another box/press red button hassle! Love individual sports! Any team games I could turn off or avoid - mostly. Still shades of "separate but equal" tho. Why female boxers do 4 rounds and men only 3?? Rather have the buffering than the endless boredom of "Watershed" telly. Especially over scheduling clashes. Look forward to mixed synchro swimming, gymnastics, rhythmic gymnastics, diving, equestrian events and "modern Pentatholon should stay as well! May God preserve me from motor racing and golf! I'd almost rather die!

    If you want to know if Nick is going to stay for the next season then it is easy enough to find out what cast members are going to be in the entire season. Just look it up, a certain popular site lists the cast.

    ... I can't be the only one who found this episode unsatisfying? It's like the writers had no idea how to conclude the series for the next then went, "bugger it" and played every single american drama cliché in the book - somebody quitting out of the blue, a family member (whom we've never seen before) gets abducted and the all-dreaded character who gets shot, who may or may not live! Oh no!

    god people, no one ever actually talks about contents on these comment spaces, its always ranting about buffering and annoyances with the network. also to all those techies, i have a desktop, with s*** loads of space and every nw and then i have a problem. right now for instance it has frozen with 76 secs of ads left, so i will have to refresh. woop! just a side notice, it is kind of pointless complaining here, especially if you havent reported the problem thru the proper channels,and BBC i player, and othersalso fail from time to time. so instead of getting ratty with each other, refresh the pg, turn off the pc, have a break, read a book, do something else, and perhaps when you get back to it, you will be able to watch it right thru. its really not wort getting all uptight about, there are way more important things to get angry/annoyed/frustrated about, perhaps like all the native ppl in western canada, whose lives and land are being destroyed so that y'all can continue to drive cars and drink out of plastic bottles...

    To all those people who complain about buffering problems, look at you hard disk first, if you have too little free space on your hard disk of course it's going to keep buffering, 50% free on your HD for it to work properly always been that way always will be.

    As usual, buffering problems. If ch 5 cannot offer a good service, why bother? You've just lost another viewer.
