Angelo investigates a possible abalone racket and Hugo is his prime suspect. Charlie disagrees and Angelo, unable to confront his feelings for her, argues with her. He believes she and Hugo are now a couple – a theory confirmed by May, who overhead Hugo asking Charlie out. Angelo’s life is further complicated when May proposes moving in with him.
