Plans are underway for the next TOP SECRET Poker night at Salt.
The buy-in price for players has gone up to $500 and there's now a waiting list.
However, when Nathan Silva (Ryan Panizza) returns to the restaurant unannounced, he has an unexpected proposal for Salt boss, Mackenzie Booth (Emily Weir).
Nathan introduces Mackenzie to the mysterious PK (Ryan Johnson, from such Aussie TV series as The Secret Life Of Us and Doctor Doctor).
PK wants in on the next game, despite there being no more places at the table.
But it seems PK won't take no for an answer, and tells Mackenzie she can name her price to let him buy-in for the game!
Will Mackenzie give into the demands of this MYSTERY stranger?
