S15 E26 (17 Feb 01) : Scent of the Roses by Susan Boyd

Episode Summary

Charlie watches a video of Louis sent from Canada. He then attends a hearing to try and gain custody of Louis. In a break, one of the officials talks to Charlie about Louis, and warns him that fathers rarely get custody. That if Charlie takes this to court, he may become the enemy and Baz could even stop him seeing Louis for good.

Holly, leaving her house in the morning, finds a rose and an anonymous note – reading ‘Only you can heal me’, in her letterbox on the way to work. She also finds a similar rose in her car, leaving her too scared to drive to work – she walks. At work, she tells Colette that she thinks someone may have been in her house during the night. At the end of the shift, Holly finds yet another rose taped to her locker, and begins to get very worried. Patrick tells her she should take the situation seriously. Patrick tells her that he’s there for her to talk to whenever she wants. Holly says thanks, but there’s nothing anyone can do, and that’s why it’s scary. Patrick tells her to take care.

When Charlie arrives back at the hospital, he gets a message informing him of the major incident exercise. When telling the other members of staff, Charlie is annoyed to find out that Holly already knows. Charlie talks to Dan about the situation but Dan defends himself, saying that in a previous meeting, Charlie had said that a major incident exercise would only work if he weren’t told beforehand.

A security man, Mick Fletcher, is working for a sports company when he catches a woman vandalising the stock. After confronting her, the two realise that they used to know each other. Mick decides that Jess still has to leave, and struggles with her. She spills some battery acid that she was pouring on the stock over his arm. He tells her to go, and when the other security guards arrive, Mick tells them that three blokes in balaclavas did it. At hospital where Mick is being treated for burns caused by the acid, Jess turns up to visit him and the pair reminisce about past times. Mick quits his job.

Charlie quickly organises the staff to deal with the ‘patients’ from the major incident exercise. Burns, a fractured pelvis, a penetrating chest injury, a fractured clavicle and a ruptured spleen are amongst the fake injuries that the staff come into contact with. A man, Dermott Norwood, wears a contact lens to make Tom and Max believe one of his pupils has blown. He then reveals he was joking when they rush to treat him. Later, he collapses and Chloe first thinks that he is faking it. She soon realises that he is really ill and he is treated. He reveals that he has epilepsy.

At a shout, Mel is confronted by a dog, but stays calm due to treatment she has been receiving for her fear.

A woman, Evelyn, and her dad, Alec, are moving into a house in the city. Evelyn is upset about moving from the county, but her dad explains again, using sign language, as Evelyn is deaf, that his old job was too much for him and that they will be fine in the city. At a trip to the garden centre later in the episode, Alec collapses and is taken into hospital. He has suffered from a stroke.

Andrew and Duffy argue once more about the baby. Duffy, in exasperation, asks if Andrew wants her to have an abortion. He says he doesn’t. Duffy asks him what he does want. Later in the episode, Duffy asks Charlie how the hearing about Louis went. Charlie tells her what he had been told about the possibility of losing Louis. Duffy, saddened to see Charlie so upset and invites him home to have supper that night with her and Andrew.

A tomboyish girl, Nicky, goes to a farm to help out. A conversation with her mum, Marion Moorhouse shows that her mum would rather she had a more feminine hobby. At the farm, Nicky is grooming a horse when it gets out of control, knocking Nicky over. She is taken into hospital. Marion is involved in the major incident exercise and sees her daughter at the hospital. They argue, and Marion tells Duffy that tom is so like her father, who she is separated from. Nicky tells Colette that she wanted to go and see the horse she was caring for in a parade later that day. Marion agrees to take her, trying to take an interest in her daughter’s hobby as advised by Duffy.

At the end of the episode, Colette goes into the toilet where she finds Duffy nearly collapsed on the floor, bleeding and in pain. Colette rushes for help and Charlie and Andrew come to help. Duffy clings to Andrew, sobbing, and pleading with him not to let her lose the baby. Charlie can do nothing but watch.
