This week on The Embassy, a possible kidnapping, unpaid hotel bills and a drunken night in Phuket that doesn’t end well.
In Episode Two: Expat ex-digger Ben arrives at the embassy distraught and in tears. His young Thai wife has gone missing without a trace and he’s convinced she’s been taken against her will, kidnapped by a jealous ex-boyfriend. He’s also terrified her life may be in danger.
Meanwhile in Vietnam, Rodney, a beer-loving big wave surfer has been having way too much of a good time in Vietnam. He’s overstayed his visa. And he’s run up a $1500 hotel bill, which he refuses to pay. Consular officers Richard and Stephanie spring into action. But Rodney gives them a run for their money!
On an overnight stopover in Bangkok, young Sydney brothers, Daniel, Michael and Jamie go looking for a good time. But a bit of harmless fun in Patpong goes seriously wrong. Now oldest brother Daniel is in ICU with a fractured skull, brain haemorrhage and a possible broken neck. His distraught parents turn to the embassy for help.
And young WA miners, Keogan and Harley call each other Dumb and Dumber. It’s a bromance gone seriously wrong. They’re in the embassy after a drunken night in Phuket, where Koegan’s lost his wallet, $1800 in cash, and his passport, wrestling with ladyboys. Consular officer, Callum, has seen it all before!
8:30pm Wednesday on Nine.
