Episode four saw Nadine take on a risky undercover task

Elsewhere in the episode, Marie-Andrée and Charles came to blows when she expressed she had had enough of his criminal ways, however it didn't take long for her to become wrapped up in Charles' behaviours again. Viewers also saw what happened on their Christmas trip to Hong Kong – which turned out to be to Kathmandu after all.

Episode four also focused more on his other accomplice Ajay, and how he is becoming more despairing of Charles' actions, particularly after he meets a love-interest.

The serial killer, who was reprimanded in 1976, took Ajay on a shocking killing expedition as he murdered two backpackers in a brutal attack – and from the look on Ajay's face, he feels under the control of Charles' heinous behaviour.
