Nic is going stir crazy in prison and Kelly is devastated to see him so despondent and shaken. Back in the ward, she finds it hard to hide her disdain when Carly, a donor patient, reveals that her father, Colin, was drunk while driving and killed her mother. Kelly later realises that she has misjudged him and, furious at Carly for not appreciating how lucky she is to have her dad, she returns to the ward after clocking off. She waits for her moment, with only Kath on duty, and, avoiding the CCTV cameras, sidles up to Colin’s bedside. She indulges in self pity and laments how she has always been desperate to find someone who loved her enough to go the distance. Overwrought, she lethally injects him with insulin, sobbing hopelessly: “If Carly won’t understand, then I’ll have to help her to appreciate everything you’ve done.”
Mubbs can’t help feeling surprised at himself when he is moved by the death of a patient. He doesn’t usually take his work so personally and needs to unload his burden onto Rosie. He takes a good look at himself and doesn’t like what he sees and acknowledges that he has been so busy chasing what he wants that he will never get what he needs. He tells Rosie he thinks he is changing because of her but she has to go, leaving him feeling exposed and vulnerable.
