S19 E16 (19 Dec 04) : Forsaking All Others by Emma Frost
It is the wedding day, Abs and Ellen have arranged to have a simple affair at a registry office. Abs asks Nina to be the witness, Nina tells Abs he is making a big mistake but she agrees to come. Nina later tells Claire the real reason that Abs and Ellen are marrying – Ellen is blackmailing him. Jim and Selena decide to organise a surprise party for Abs and Ellen. Woody picks the couple up from the registry office in a horse and carriage and takes them to a plush hotel where the rest of the team are waiting. They make sure Ellen feels at home by organising some Ukrainian wedding traditions. An upset Nina leaves the party, and Claire finds her in the toilet crying. Abs and Ellen go up to the honeymoon suite that the team have booked for them. Ellen makes a move on Abs, but he is shocked telling her the wedding was a business arrangement. Ellen warns him that they cannot see other people as they need to pretend their relationship is real. Abs walks out of the room and goes to the hotel bar. He sees a tearful Nina and they talk, but when Abs tries to kiss her Nina rejects him saying she refuses to be his mistress.
Jim tells Harry that he has been struck off the State medical board in America, meaning he can never practise medicine there again. He fears that the GMC will do the same.
