Phil is stressed out when fiancee Kat Slater corners him and warns him to get Keeble off his case. With their wedding coming up, Kat doesn't want ANYONE to ruin things for them.

In a bid to outfox her, Phil meets up with his criminal mate Dodge, who he's tasked with finding some dirt on her. Dodge has the information that Phil needs, leaving him feeling confident that he can give Keeble the slip once and for all.

Phil warns Dodge that he needs to get out of the country as he's on Keeble's hit list He meets up with Keeble to discuss things and she's furious that he's told everyone on her list to flee the country before the police make their move!

Keeble is momentarily wrongfooted when Phil slyly tells her that he knows she has an ulterior motive. In response, she hands him a photo of someone and tells him that unless he gets the info she needs he'll be heading straight back to prison...

Who could it be?
