BACK TO SCHOOL

Our lovelorn hero probes dodgy go­ings-on at a col­lege.

ack is play­ing with fire as he puts every­thing all on the line to em­bark on a tor­rid af­fair with a mar­ried woman.

They say love can heal even the most bruised and bat­tered heart, and Jack’s (Guy Pearce) has taken its fair share of beat­ings – along with his body. But will a new re­la­tion­ship in up­com­ing episodes of the new sea­son of Jack Ir­ish steady this sink­ing ship­wreck of a man?

The for­mer debt col­lec­tor has been on au­to­matic pi­lot since Linda (Marta Dus­sel­dorp) left. She’s now liv­ing over­seas with a new man and is mak­ing it clear she’s put Jack, and the trou­ble that al­ways seems to find him, firmly be­hind her. Even with an ocean be­tween them, how­ever, fate con­spires to throw the for­mer lovers to­gether once again when a pack­age Jack sent to Linda three years ago is re­turned un­de­liv­ered.

The mystery of what hap­pened to the courier, an in­ter­na­tional stu­dent from the Mer­i­tus In­sti­tute of Higher Learn­ing, is in­ter­wo­ven with Rory (Danielle Cor­mack), an al­lur­ing psy­chi­a­trist treat­ing mul­ti­ple stu­dents from the school. An alarm­ing num­ber of them are turn­ing up dead in rather sus­pi­cious cir­cum­stances and Anoushka (Leah Van­den­burg), the slimy prin­ci­pal of the col­lege, is do­ing dodg­ing Jack’s in­quiries...

Rory has been quick to make her feel­ings for the lovelorn fixer known and, as Jack be­gins to mix busi­ness with plea­sure, she’s also keep­ing her cards pretty close to her chest. Claim­ing to be trapped in a love­less mar­riage, Rory spins him a dra­matic tale, claim­ing that she and her hus­band are only stay­ing to­gether for

the sake of their kids. But, as Jack’s in­ves­ti­ga­tion delves deeper, her con­nec­tion to the late for­eign schol­ars is rais­ing more trou­bling ques­tions than it an­swers. Her mo­ti­va­tion for turn­ing his head could well prove to be sin­is­ter and when he makes a shock­ing dis­cov­ery about what has re­ally been go­ing on at the col­lege, it will leave Jack won­der­ing who he can trust.

As the case gets more com­pli­cated, Jack can’t help but reach out to his old flame Linda – de­spite his strong at­trac­tion to Rory. It’s true he still holds a torch for her – which she is aware of – but he’s mask­ing those feel­ings be­hind a re­quest for her jour­nal­is­tic help. The prob­lem is she’s been burnt by him so many times she’s hes­i­tant to get sucked back into Jack’s dan­ger­ous world.

Be­fore Linda can make her mind up, how­ever, her part­ner Or­ton (Jacek Ko­man) is de­ter­mined to make her for­get about her ex and prompts what is a lifechang­ing de­ci­sion...

Mean­while, Jack doesn’t re­alise the one per­son who truly needs him is right un­der his nose, and if he doesn’t keep his wits about him, he stands to lose more than just his heart.
