Just as the team are finishing with one genius con where Emma is posing as pop princess Kylie, Albert is out finding and priming the next unsuspecting mark - ex-banker Piggy Richardson who has been hounded by the press after a very public pension scandal. However, just as the plan starts to fall into place, a mysterious woman enquires about Mickey's whereabouts and throws their plan into disarray. Mickey hasn't got a clue who she is or what she wants but when she invites him out for dinner, he's intrigued. That is until the mystery lady turns out to be the beautiful, DCI Lucy Britford. Never one to shy away from a challenge, Mickey is certain that he can outsmart Britford, after all, no one's managed to catch him yet!
While at the airport seeing Albert off on a trip, the team encounters `Liability' Finch, a hapless friend of Ash who is in hot water with a customs officer and a Russian art collector as a result of a bungled painting theft. Despite being ordered by Mickey to lie low and avoid trouble, Sean sets out to help Finch, with disastrous consequences.
Albert is in Chinatown to close a deal with Phil and his brother-in-law, Charlie. However, Czech Charlie is a notorious hard-man and not one to ever consider conning, so when Phil collapses and dies, Albert decides to cut his losses and leave the con. But Charlie isn't pulling out. He wants his brother's cash by the end of the week or else! Can the team con half a million to save Albert's bacon?
The gang are just about to close a deal worth 50,000; that is, until Sean is distracted by someone with whom he has a score to settle. He lets the mark walk off with the money while he pursues this man. Emma is shocked to discover that the man is none other than Rex Kennedy, Sean and Emma's dad, who walked out on them 25 years ago.
The gang are left in shock as the unthinkable happens - Mickey is conned! Some lowlife rips him off by selling him a useless mobile phone online. According to the age-old laws of grifting, when a grifter is conned he's guaranteed a run of bad luck. What will the gang do if Mickey loses his mojo? They head to Eddie's to drown their sorrows, only to find it heaving with customers. It seems Lady Luck has switched her allegiance and the chums need to do something to restore the balance.
Just as the gang are about to close another successful deal, a cruel twist of fate reveals one of the marks to be an undercover police officer. It seems the team might be in a spot of bother. Mickey and the team are arrested and unceremoniously thrown in the slammer. Things look like they have gone from bad to worse when Nigel Chambers and the beautiful Jennifer Hughes from MI6 arrive to question Mickey. The pair has a proposition for him and, unfortunately for Mickey, these two don't play by the book.
