Episode Summary

Duffy tries to track down Peter, but the Police can’t help her. Ted takes Megan for a picnic in Cheltenham and shows her his garage, she’s not impressed

Susie reluctantly goes to a punk concert with her friend, where a punk falls on some glass. She drives the punk, who has a deep cut on his hand, to A&E, Kuba congratulates her.

Terry is angry at his ex-partner, Gayle’s boyfriend, Nigel, who beats her. He asks his brother, Jimmy, to attack him – and he stabs Nigel in the neck. Shortly after being seen in A&E, Nigel discharges himself and makes his way to the punk concert with his friend, where the brothers are. They stab Terry and then give chase to Jimmy, before stabbing him as well. Jimmy is picked up by a bus, who takes him to casualty where he dies. Nigel, who also goes back to A&E, is arrested for murder.

A regular, Anne-Marie, comes in pretending she’s in labour – she delivers a ‘baby’ (a pillow) in the staff room.

Ewart dines with Elizabeth and her daughter, Louise, who tells him she’s pregnant. Ewart advises abortion, making Elizabeth angry. Cyril wins a bet with Charlie, Kuba and Keith, that he could persuade antisocial Mary to have breakfast with him. Mary realises it’s a bet and chooses an expensive hotel and orders lots of food. Duffy finds out her HIV test was negative.
