EARNING RESPECT THE HARD WAY
Rejecting Ally and Peter’s concerns about his violent impulses, Ray explains that’s how he gets people to treat him right!
Ray Shoesmith may need to look at himself on Mr Inbetween
Unlikely couple Ray and Ally have taken their blossoming new relationship to a deeper level and, as strange as it rst sounded, the paramedic is falling in love with the bloke who seems to hurt people for a living. Unaware of the precise nature of his work, she’s troubled by his penchant for
shocking violence. Tiring of biting her tongue on the thorny issue, Ally (Brooke Satchwell) nally confronts Ray (Scott Ryan) after a nasty road-rage incident prompts her to ask why he acts with his sts rst, instead of using his wit and words to diffuse tricky situations. He doesn’t really give her any answers, but attends another anger management session, still under sufferance, and nally puts his therapist Peter (David Michod) in the picture when he raises the same issue. Riled by Peter’s method of always making him angrier than calmer, Ray explains that violence is justi able when you have to teach someone there are rami cations for being an asshole! Nobody will respect you otherwise!
To wit, Ray puts that favourite philosophy into practice with the latest lot on his list. Struggling with insomnia, he looks out his window to nd a van parked outside... surveilling the house! Getting behind the wheel, Ray lures the vehicle to a safe place away from prying eyes and proceeds to “permanently damage” its occupants! They work for Davros (Firass Dirani), the ambitious crime boss who had Gary (Justin Rosniak) beaten into a coma... and who doesn’t like Ray.
Instead of earning their respect, Ray is the victim of revenge in return when he’s kidnapped and carted off in his own car! Locked in the boot, Ray is now in a pretty sticky situation, wondering how he’s going to get out of this one – and get the respect he deserves. TVS
