She backtracks but Simon declares that they are finished. At the launch, Harry picks up the wrong signals and attempts to kiss Lara. In S18 E12, Harry’s luck is not much better – Lara admits his flirtatious behaviour has made her feel uncomfortable and is not interested in anything more than friendship.

He is broken and admits that he just wants them to be close again. In S18 E21, Harry puts Simon and Lara at risk while at an outdoor pursuit centre for management training. Rattled by Lara’s late-night shenanigans with the instructor, Harry stubbornly ignores the marked route and heads off down a darkened tunnel during a cave orienteering exercise. After losing his footing, he slips down the shaft and hurts his leg. In attempt to rescue him, they all end up trapped in freezing, wet conditions and the instructor is badly injured. Anger turns to panic when the hole begins to fill with water. Cramped and cold, they reveal intimacies until Lara decides to venture back into the tunnel. When the only thing left to do is swim underwater to an opening, Simon volunteers to go first and secure the route. He courageously helps Harry, but in a moment of confusion knocks his head against a rock and does not resurface. In S18 E22, Simon, who was hoping to escape by swimming underwater to an opening, has not reappeared. Lara leaps into the water, while Harry callously writes him off as a lost cause. After dragging Simon to the surface, she brings him round but he has no sensation in his legs. Lara has to keep both men conscious and releases a tirade of abuse to do so. When the cave rescue team reaches them, they are delirious. Lara blames Harry for the disaster, and Simon’s spinal injury means he may never walk again. In S18 E23, Lara is appalled by Harry’s suggestion of a temporary replacement for Simon. She is by Simon’s side when he feels the first hint of sensation returning in his legs. In S18 E25, Harry is dismissive of the amount of praise Simon is getting when he returns to the department in a wheelchair. In S18 E26, Tally is still taking a great interest in Simon’s wellbeing now that he is back on his feet again, but her attentions are not well received. Harry, meanwhile, is not happy when Simon and Lara join forces to question his authority. In S18 E30, Tally warns Lara her time is up; if she does not have the decency to tell her dad about her and Simon, then she will. Lara admits the affair to Harry, who tries to hide his jealousy and, when she pushes him further, he announces the affair to the entire staff. In S18 E31, Tally takes the opportunity to stir things up and lies to her dad, saying that Simon said he loved her. She turns on the tears and claims that Simon has messed her around and she does not know where she stands. Harry is furious with Simon and has it out with him. In S18 E32, Lara makes it clear to Harry that Tally is a liability to patients and that he has to get rid of her. Harry confronts Tally over Lara’s accusations and is stunned when she admits to them. He tells her he has no alternative but to suspend her. Tally accuses Harry of being heartless, doing this on her dead mother’s birthday, but her day gets even worse when Simon lets her know he is glad to see the back of her – she was the biggest mistake of his life. Harry is brought to the toilets to find Tally unconscious on the floor after taking an overdose. In S18 E33, a prison riot means Harry has to shut down the department to take in injured prisoners. It is hard for Harry to concentrate with Tally still in resus but, after an agonising wait, he is told she will be fine. Harry’s relief turns to anger when he sees Lara and blames her. However, he later realises he is at fault for what Tally has done. In S18 E34, Tally, who is still recovering in hospital, breaks down when Lara visits her.

Abs is annoyed but Lara reminds him that Simon has covered for him and suggests he owes it to Simon to keep quiet. In S18 E40, Simon tells Harry that he has been taking drugs since the cave accident and that Lara has had to cover for him. Harry is furious and agrees that Simon should resign. In S18 E41, Simon seeks professional help for his drug problem and Lara tries to persuade Harry to discard Simon’s resignation letter, but Harry is adamant that he is a liability. Lara tells him that if he does not give Simon another chance, she will report him for his self-prescribing. In S18 E42, Simon comes in for his meeting with Harry. To Simon’s surprise, Harry tells him he can have his job back if he guarantees to continue with his drug counselling.
