Inner Circle is the fifth episode of season 2 of The Listener.


Toby is brought in to investigate corrupt cops but finds himself in over his head when one of them ends up dead from a suspected drug overdose.


Michelle dispatches Toby to a cop bar to gather information on Ross Miller (Richard Fagon) and Scott O'Neill (Steven McCarthy), two anti-gang detectives whom IIB is investigating for drug racketeering. But when Miller collapses in the restroom from a suspected drug overdose and later dies in hospital, Toby senses Miller's wife, Emily (Rachael Crawford), may hold secrets that uncover the real truth behind his death. When toxicology reports reveal cyanide in Miller's system, McCluskey informs Toby Ross' death has been ruled a homicide. As O'Neill and his sergeant, Matt Collins, ramp up efforts to protect their fallen comrade from further investigation, McCluskey and Dev interrogate Emily. When Toby "listens" to her thoughts, he's shocked to learn she's having an affair with Collins. After a brief chase with a gang member linked to the cyanide proves to be another dead end...
