Episode 7 synopsis: Forty’s deep in police no-go area Zone 41, Olivia has woken up from her coma, and Avi knows that Edie is pregnant – and he’s the father.

A masked, armed intruder tracks Daniel through the garden of the McKenzie home with one mission in mind, after Daniel’s live-streamed assertion that he’d be able to identify his father’s killer if he saw them again. Edie tells the team at the Daily Mercury their fortune.

Forty continues to defy orders from above and finds himself working closely with Edie as their interests converge. Avi hires guards to look after Daniel, Jaime, and Edie. Can hired hands keep them safe from the marauding gunmen that seemingly stalk them at every turn?

Werner tells Robert that Olivia is dead, sending him spiralling into despair. Jaime doesn’t take kindly to a fellow Gatsby cast member cosying up to Daniel. A single gunshot stops Forty in his tracks.

Watch out for: A heart-breaking flashback that reveals the depths of Edie’s lifelong regret for surrendering Daniel to Andrew and Olivia.
