Episode Summary

Colette is annoyed as her honeymoon photos haven’t come out. After Jack and Nikki’s night together, Jack disappoints Nikki, who was a virgin, by telling her he’s not ready for a relationship. Tony tells him he’s making a mistake, and Jack tries to make amends with flowers. Meanwhile, Anna asks Tony out on a date – he tells her he’s gay. Embarrassed, she makes the wrong impression that he does drugs and one night stands, but later apologises.

Tramp Adam Salter is brought in with severe frostbite to his feet. Philippa and Dillon treat him with hot water before planning to take him to surgery, but Adam wants to discharge himself. Philippa doesn’t care, but Dillon persuades him to stay with the thought of a warm bed and decent food.

Gay Paul O’Sullivan, a friend of Tony’s, is brought in after a night taking cocaine. Philippa and Colette disagree on how to treat him, so Lara steps in to agree with Colette’s diagnoses to shock him.

Reg Newberry is brought in with his wife Louise, after collapsing in the street. Lara discovers he is dying of cancer, and is on a course of chemotherapy. Lara realises Reg is not happy with wasting the last moments of his life in hospital having treatment and persuades him to do what he wishes. His doctor, Dr Yazdoni, is not happy with Lara for sticking her nose in. Reg and Paul talk about life while in CRASH.

A prisoner, Lewis, is brought in with a laceration to his face. Unbeknown to Chloe, the prison officers or staff, he is Chloe’s boyfriend’s brother, and it has all been a set up to escape.
