When both Scott and Bailey pass the promotion board with flying colours, it falls to Gill to choose who stays on as Sergeant at Syndicate 9. When Janet is offered the job, she realizes the timing isn't right and turns it down. And as a second-choice Rachel delights in her promotion, Janet is asked to keep the truth from her. The story of the week involves the kidnap and murder of Robin McKendrick. When a photo of Robin, in the boot of a car, shows up on Facebook, Syndicate 9 know he's probably already dead. But the body they recover from a flooded quarry is a woman, and Rachel has just landed her first job as Sergeant.
