The fifth season of Underbelly depicted the criminal activities of recently convicted Australian kidnapper, murderer and drug-dealer Anthony Perish's (aka "Rooster") criminal activities around the Sydney suburb of Lindfield and adjacent areas and how the New South Wales Police 'Strike Force Tuno' finally apprehended him after almost a decade of intensive surveillance and informant information.
S05:E01 - Thy Will Be Done
When a prisoner is abducted and murdered while on day-release, police embark on a man-hunt to find the killers. The 10-year investigation leads them to an underworld boss who is totally invisible to the police and the legitimate world.
S05:E02 - Cut Snake and Crazy F
Nosey gives Tuno the name Anthony Perish, a high level crook who runs an outfit known as The Company - revealing that he himself played a part in Perish's kidnap and murder plans. This could be a breakthrough for Gary, but can he trust Nosey? The guy redefines "difficult witness" - he insists on meetings at night in deserted parkland, complains of bumps in the night, is convinced Tuno will betray him to Perish.
S05:E03 - The Loaded Dog
Nosey's careening out of control with paranoia and booze, and crashing his Harley into the back of a semi-trailer at 120kph. Their best informant hovering near death is one problem for Gary - the other is the IA cops wondering why this known crim had videotapes hidden in his motorbike's panniers of Tuno detectives drinking tea in his loungeroom?!
S05:E04 - Year of the Rooster
With most of the Tuno team scattered to the four winds, a defiant Gary keeps the investigation rolling in clandestine mode in his spare time, meeting with Detective Sergeant Glen "Flatline" Browne late at night to plot strategy, and chasing witnesses at weekends.
S05:E05 - Troubleshooting
Of course paranoid Anthony notices the heat and, ironically, it's the ensuing harassment he heaps on Robbie about not talking to the cops that leads Robbie to agree to making a statement against him. Robbie says that a man known as "Redman" was one of the Falconer kidnappers. That "Redman" has been hauled back in to check out a new property in Mudgee that reeks of badness.
S05:E06 - Road To Nowhere
Further surveillance has Sean telling a bodybuilder associate Michael Christiansen that "the job was too good to pass up", while showing him a photograph. Gary and Glen have no choice but to follow Sean from this meeting, but they didn't expect him to he drive all the way north to Queensland and the Gold Coast, which of course is another jurisdiction completely!
S05:E07 - Bang, Bang, Kill, Kill
Unaware he is under police surveillance, Decker juggles two different hit-man contracts with the impending birth of his baby. He is forced to delegate responsibility for one such task to another Perish gang member, bodybuilder and steroid abuser, Michael Christensen.
S05:E08 - Strike Force Tuno
The pressure is so great the Crown Prosecutor has a heart attack and has to bow out from the case, mere days before the trial is scheduled to begin. The only available replacement is Paul Leask, a younger, cockier lawyer who isn't intimidated by the defence, when perhaps he should be. Nosey comes back on board to finish what he started.
