Cameron Pell's downfall. When he kidnaps a school bus of kids, intending to suffocate them with engine smoke, one boy slips away. He tussles with him and loses his mask. Luther and Justin arrive in time, the boy being held at knifepoint.

Then, to finish it up, the hostage escapes with ease and Ripley clocks him in the face.
John using Jenny's accidental murder of Toby to his advantage - he no longer has anyone blackmailing him and after he frames Frank for the killing, Toby's grandma has no leverage against him.
