The first episode sees the grifters take on gold dealer Dexter Gold (played by Paterson Joseph). Famous for parting the elderly from their precious treasures in return for a pittance and trading stolen gold at profitable prices, the gang is eager to give this fraudster a taste of his own medicine. Masquerading as a renegade army unit, the team lures in their greedy mark with the promise of a consignment of looted Libyan gold, but will the team pull off the con before the experts find out the truth? Meanwhile, Eddie finally has enough of the gang's childish behaviour when he finds that someone has defaced his precious photo of Liverpool legend Ian Rush. Failing to see the funny side, and certain that the culprit is West Ham supporter Ash, Eddie bans the team from the bar until he owns up. But for once Ash is innocent and, though the absence of Eddie's breakfasts is taking its toll, there's no way he'll own up to something he didn't do. It's stalemate.
