Things are steaming up in the A&E department – when the boiler packs up – Spencer tries to fix it himself as the odd job man, Shifty, is busy fixing other things. Lara is back from a course in Dublin and ends up flirting with Patrick all shift. Nikki is still trying to urge Jack to see a doctor about the lump in his testicle. Jack talks to Dillon, who gives him the same advice. And eventually at the end of his shift he goes to see Max – who refers him and says he did the right thing, and saved his own life.
After Simon and Annabel’s wedding, Simon makes his speech and announces he knows his wife and best man, Jules, slept with eachother the previous night, which leads to a brawl at the reception. Annabel tries to sort things out with Simon in a cubicle but he says it’s over, and wanted her as humiliated as possible.
Lara treats a volleyball player, Naomi, with a displaced coli’s fracture. She faces an operation but wants to come back in the morning as she wants to attend a job interview first. Patrick disagrees with Lara’s decision to allow her to discharge herself, but is forced to back down.

He refuses treatment, but Patrick tells him they have to cancel off his transplant operation anyway and if he refuses treatment he will die, Eddie reluctantly agrees to treatment.
