Grisham starts to wonder how Slade solves so many crimes, and assigns Morris to follow him. Turner warns Slade that they are using the machine too much, and so go back to good old detective work. Slade reluctantly agrees, but when a MP is killed, the temptation proves too much for him, and he travels back in time alone. Turner is none the wiser until Nicky shows her the timer found in the garden at the Scene of the crime.
Slade discovers that a bitter illegitimate son of the MP is responsible for the death of the minister. However when he goes to arrest him, he himself is shot in the leg and tied up with no way of getting back to the time machine. To make matters worse, no-one has any idea of where he is.
It's now a rush against time for Turner to find Slade in time. She manages to track down the address of the son, and finds Slade, but he's lost a lot of blood, and is too scared of Slade dying to be angry with him. If they can get Slade back to the time machine the shot will disappear (as he wasn't shot when he left). Alas when they arrive at Turner's flat, Morris is outside as he was following Slade. Turner must distract Morris, while Slade struggles to get to Turner's flat in time. He only just makes it.
Later Turner becomes annoyed that Slade totally ignored her, and used the time machine without her permission. She is not a happy bunny!
