Thanks to Antoine Lacombe, Laura's best friend, and president of an organization for the protection of minors, Julie manages to identify one of the girls on the tape: it's Marine, Francoise's girl.

Epis 2: PIRATES (Pirates)
For a while now, carjackers, what we might consider modern day pirates, have been roaming the highways. On isolated roads, they stalk their prey, preferably women and old people who they are able to intimidate with a show of incredible violence. But recently, the frequency of these crimes has been on the increase. A climate of paranoia and terror reigns. Sarah, an intern in a law office, has been given her boss's car to take care of various chores for him. She is supposed to pick him up at his place in the morning and take him to work. But while on her way to pick him up, on a deserted road, she is stopped and beaten by two carjackers in ski masks. They take the car, leaving her there by the side of the road, badly injured, and in shock. Alerted by another car, Julie and her men rush in. Julie is tending to Sarah when she receives a call from the station. There is a report of a body on the side of the road, not far from where they are now. Julie makes haste to get to the scene of the crime. The victim turns out to be Jean-Luc Boulay, CEO and owner of the Boulay company. He was found by his friend and associate, Francis Romanni, by the side of a forest trail. Apparent cause of death: a sharp blow to the side of the head. Friends for twenty years already, Romanni and Boulay were supposed to meet at a boat-house next to a nearby lake to go sailing. Sailing is a passion and a hobby they have shared since the beginning and they have taken care to devote a few hours to it each week. Suspicion is immediately directed at the carjackers. Julie goes to announce the bad news to Boulay's wife. But the woman is a strangely cold character, seemingly neither interested in the fate of her husband, nor the fate of her daughter, Clarisse, a provocative and completely uncontrollable girl of 15.

Epis 3: OUTLAW (Hors la loi)
One night at Clairières: after an emergency call, Héroux and a young woman colleague pay a visit to the house of a jeweler. The minute they arrive, the young colleague is killed by a masked man, who runs away.
Called in to assist, Julie enters the house and discovers the jeweler's wife and daughter bound and gagged. As for the jeweler himself, he has been carried away to his shop by two accomplices. Julie rushes to the shop, where she finds him bound and gagged too. Unfortunately he is dead due to the asphyxiation caused by the gag. The similarity to another recent crime (where the criminals also hogtied a jeweler) obliges Julie to collaborate with the BRB. Very quickly a witness helps nail a certain Berteau, a man with a long criminal record. But Berteau professes his innocence. His lawyer, it just so happens, is Maitre Verdon, Julie's companion. Despite the situation, and complicated by the fact that the husband of the young policewoman killed in the robbery is intent on gaining revenge himself, Julie continues her investigation. She discovers that the principle testimony was falsified by a member of the BRB. But does this mean that Berteau is innocent? All of this creates more than a bit of tension in Julie's home life, tensions exacerbated by the fact that Verdon's son has moved in during the summer vacation, and he doesn't get along especially well with Babou. Meanwhile, Kaplan's son asks Kaplan for money to help his girlfriend out, or so he says. Kaplan wonders if this is the real reason. And when the girlfriend's mother comes in to file a claim for burglary, even more questions fill Kaplan's mind.

Julie is particularly interested in Jean-Yves Lacroix, a man who is unemployed. For the past two years he has been learning law in order to build up a case against Carpentier. A sudden hitch in the investigation causes some problems for Julie: Rebecca, the victim's wife has suddenly gone missing. She in fact disappeared from home the day before the murder, taking her 9-year-old daughter, Fanny, with her. Now in search of her, the police take an interest in Rémi Mauriac, Rebecca's ex-husband and Fanny's father. It turns out that he has just spent 6 years in prison for embezzling real estate. Putting two and two together, Julie's research further uncovers that Mauriac was actually falsely accused. It was actually Carpentier, Mauriac's old partner, who was responsible for the embezzlement and should have spent six years in prison. Vengeance: yet another motive for Rémi Mauriac to murder Carpentier.
Soon Rebecca is found with her daughter in a small suburban hotel. Her declarations are muddled. It seems that she too had reason to resent Carpentier. Their marriage was a travesty to cover up his 6-year lie. The net is tightening. until someone makes an attempt on Rebecca's life...

Soon Julie discovers Darel's corpse. He has been assassinated. Kaplan and n'Guma's speculations were accurate. Darel's brother had hidden the body. But Julie does not believe he is guilty. Darrel's death somehow has connections to a prostitution network that is working through a disco on the college campus. A second murder takes place. The investigation uncovers that the victim, an administrator at the college, was involved in the dirty dealings of the prostitution den. It just might turn out that the desperate Albane knows more about this case than she is letting on.

The police quickly nab the driver of the car that pushed her into a ditch, who becomes the prime suspect. But it is quickly established that he had nothing to do with the murder. Without any other possible explanation, other than the existence of some kind of maniac lurking in the area, the police discover that Sandrine had been involved, for several months already, in a bit of investigative work of her own to try and clear her father's name. Wrongly accused, two years previously, of having killed a 16 year-old girl, her father had committed suicide. Convinced that this affair is the key to the present investigation, Julie decides to meet with all concerned. In so doing, she discovers a case strangely mishandled by the police two years ago. And that the murderer is none other than the Gendarme Captain responsible for the flawed investigation, who was hoping to cover for one of his friends.

For Julie and the Clairières police, a double investigation begins: an official one concerning Anne-Laure, and an unofficial one on Babou. N'Guma and Kaplan discover that Anne-Laure de Clavel, in spite of her high-class social standing and the favorable accounts of her friends, including her boyfriend Alexandre, was not quite the stable, law-abiding citizen she seemed to be. Very much affected by the death of her father, who was also accused of embezzlement by his friend and colleague Ivan Delorme, hers was a life of open rebellion against her mother, Odile. A life in which she joined a weekly poker game in the back room of a bar called "L'Octagone." Julie discovers a number of other cases of people drugged with the same drug as Babou. A jurist puts her on the track of a drug called "Sphinx," a chemical substance as yet not widely known. Her task now is to find, at all costs, a sample of this drug, so as to be able to heal Babou. Can parents ever know the secrets of their children? Can they ever really protect them from their own actions? This is what Julie, just like Odile de Clavel, can not stop asking hers.

Kaplan realizes that he knows Florence Darras: she is the ex-wife of his friend Thierry Servier, an ex- bomb-squad-cop with whom she had a daughter named Alice. Julie discovers that Florence Darras was beaten by her husband. But when the police show up to interrogate her, she has disappeared along with Alice. Julie tracks her down in an aerial parking lot and manages to convince her to surrender. Florence confesses to having shot at her husband. She claims he beat her regularly. The morning of the crime, she was afraid that he was going to kill her, and she shot him with a gun given to her by her father. An open-and-shut case, seemingly. But Kaplan is not so sure. He suspects Florence of manipulating the police, and of having planned the murder of her husband. According to Kaplan, Florence had already taken advantage of the judge in family affairs during the divorce proceedings when she was still with Thierry Servier.
