In tonight’s feature-length finale, the Gallagher brothers’ boot-camp session on Freshwater beach is interrupted when a kite surfer, Kim, is blown against a beachfront condo. The brothers are forced to improvise to save her. Lachie tries to flirt with her, but is thwarted by Jordan, who appears resplendent in his Rescue uniform. Kim takes an immediate shine to Jordan and asks him out, to the consternation of his recent ex-girlfriend Heidi.
But Kim’s rescue is rudely interrupted by military investigator Claire Newell and her crew, who try to arrest Lachie. When Lachie goes on the run, Claire demands Dean and Chase reveal his whereabouts. But Lachie has gone to ground; they have no idea where he is. Michelle’s nerve-wracking annual presentation to the Rescue commissioner is interrupted by news of Lachie’s near-arrest. Challenged to defend her wayward employee, Michelle sticks her neck out for Lachie, winning the commissioner’s respect in the process. Meanwhile, a dire accident between a truck and a petrol station forces Lara into deciding that it is time for her to leave Rescue, but when an old team member returns, his current situation leads her to revaluate hers.
