I'm having this baby for a friend, it's hers,
I'm just carrying it...
-Everything all right, lad?
Why don't you go down to the cafe, eh?
I can't leave you alone.
Shouldn't you be leaving for your date?
Ow, ow! Get off me!
I've got a knife, don't turn around.
-My... I've broke my nail!
-I've broke my nail!
-Honey, honey... Oh, my god!
Oh, God! Oh, God!
We were attacked. We were...
-She's bleeding, she's bleeding.
You're fine. OK? You're going to be fine. Can you sit up for me?
(There we go. There you are.)
Good girl. OK, there we go. Good girl.
Are you OK to stand? Yeah? OK, come on. That's it, that's it.
I've got you, there you are. I've got you, I've got you.
I've got you, OK? Hold on to me, That's it.
That's it. OK. Are you OK to walk? Come on, that's it.
Good girl, good girl, good girl.
-How is she? Can I see her?
We need to sort out that nasty cut.
But they're taking her to X-ray to rule out head injury.
-She'll be sporting a big black eye, that's for sure!
But, actually, she's fine, considering.
Physically, anyway... How are you doing?
Oh, I can mend these.
-Yeah, I didn't mean...
-Can I go with her? I'll go with her, yeah?
-It's OK, it's OK.
It's OK. You should just go home...
No, I can't leave you here by yourself.
-Really, it's very sweet but my mum's on her way and my brothers...
Hey, hey... Just...just give her some space, OK?
-We'll look after her. Yeah?
Right, I'm going to want a word...
Just give us a second. Cheers.
I didn't really see anything, I...
Well, I mean...
Their faces were covered. It all happened very quickly, so I...
Listen. Thank God you were there.
Because if you weren't...
I dread to think what would've happened.
You OK? Good.
KNOCK AT DOOR
Hey. Hey, Digby! Digby!
What happened? It's all over the hospital.
Oh, shut up, already!
Great! Loving today!
All right, Dozy? Dropped your pager down the loo?
I hope you're OK... I mean, I don't mean...
Of course you're not OK, but... you know what I mean...
There he is. Man of the hour.
Please just...just call me.
Look, I just heard.
-So...they came at you out of nowhere, huh?
-Pretty much, yeah.
I...I really couldn't say, I...
You sure you're all right to work today?
Yeah. Yeah. Yeah.
Have you or anyone spoken to her... today?
Voicemail. No answer at home either.
Yeah, I wouldn't be surprised if it was a little while
before she's ready to face this place again.
We've got two referrals from ED.
JONNY CLEARS HIS THROAT
-I think Mr Garcia needs a chest CT.
Oh, no you don't, my friend!
You're not going to outbid me!
350 quid for a buggy?!
I mean, come on, I know it's an off road
multi-purpose three-wheeler, but... What d'you reckon?
Why you asking me?
Because I thought you might have an opinion.
Go online. I'm sure every dog and his wife has one.
-Jeez, Louise, who put bleach in your espresso?
-Boom! What's next?
Um, Hattie Edison, 16-years-old, hereditary dilated cardiomyopathy.
-There's our woman.
Blast from the past, eh?
That's the real damage.
I'm going to have to get Auntie Jackie over to redo these.
Like my mum says, can't be walking about like this, lets the side down.
Honestly, I'm fine. I just want to get on with things.
Come on, get real. With that patch on your face?
-You'll scare the patients.
-I need to get back on the bike.
-Horse - whatever.
-I don't think so, Chantelle.
What'll I do at home all day? Watch reruns of Antiques Roadshow?
Exactly. Anyway, I'm not going to hide. They don't scare me.
-She is something else, isn't she?
Please. I need to keep busy.
All right. But you're going to take it easy today, and that is an order.
Arthur, keep an eye on her.
Watch me go!
So, chest pains, fatigue... Dizziness? Headaches?
See, this all came on in the last couple of weeks.
Her last six-month check was totally fine.
Probably all this cramming she's been doing. All she cares about
are these flippin' exams! Miss Ultra Competitive here.
Wonder where she gets that from.
Guilty. But Ben was exactly the same, do you remember?
Yeah. He had the same condition. That's how we met our Wonder Woman.
-I wouldn't know about that.
-He ended up having a transplant,
-but the heart didn't take.
It wasn't for lack of trying. We couldn't have asked for a better team.
They worked on him like he was their own. He just got unlucky.
-When was that?
-Five years ago. St Peter's.
However, this one here is very lucky,
because we've managed to trace the best woman in the field,
and now she's all ours.
-It was obvious back then she was going to be a big player.
Right, well, there are some suggestive symptoms there for sure,
but we'll order an echo and ECG.
-Get a clearer picture and then we'll see where we are.
-OK, thank you.
Sorry! Sorry, I...
You're joking. With a ski pass included in it?
I could fly to Zurich, then it's what, four hours on the train?
All right, leave it with me, I'll get back to you. Cheers, mate, bye.
-Wow. The recession's hit you hard.
-You know me.
I have simple tastes - I'm always satisfied with the best.
Aww, poor diddums. Want to come?
Dream on, sad sack.
It's a bit OTT. Whose...
You forgot. Classic.
Yeah, don't worry, she won't mind.
Whey, birthday girl!
Aw, you remembered!
Course. Although, I must say, I didn't think you'd want
the big 3-0 rubbed in your face.
Oh, I don't know. They say some things get better with age.
So, you got any plans for tonight?
Oh, you know. Had a few offers, but haven't made up my mind just yet.
So sorry to disturb, ladies. I was just wondering,
does the shop here sell disposable razors?
Oh, don't you worry about that. Why don't I go get you one?
Would you? That would be so kind.
Admitted with his wife last night.
We kept her in and he wouldn't go home,
stayed by her side all night.
That's so lovely, that is.
I've just got to check on something.
ED called earlier. Referral on its way up.
Young male, abdominal pains, possible spinal injury.
Just going to do Mrs Hendrick's bloods.
I can do that!
No. Please, can everyone just stop fussing over me?!
Does it hurt?
About what happened...
It could have been a lot worse.
They had a knife. I was lucky!
That's how I'm going to look at it.
So you said.
I need to say, I know that I could have...
Don't be silly. There was nothing you could have done about it.
Ah, there you are! That was speedy.
You don't have to deal with him. I can take it.
No. I can handle it.
'She hates being ill.'
She's like me, she has to stay on top of her game.
She's so focused, that girl. She even gave her boyfriend
his marching orders a couple of months ago.
Really is like you, then.
Yeah, you know, I keep telling her there's no rush,
she's not running a race.
People are living longer and longer with these conditions,
aren't they? They manage them.
Oh, it's Chambers, I'm going to have to take that.
Chambers? Talking of big players, eh?
Takes one to know one, kid.
Blast from the past, eh?
You seem very close.
She practically lived at the hospital.
Ben was in ITU for four months waiting for a heart.
We operated. Heart didn't take.
He never regained consciousness after the op.
That is tough. Both kids.
Um... These aren't looking too good.
Right, well, let's order an MRI then, OK?
That's looking very bruised.
That's what it says, doesn't it?
Did you...fall on something? How did you...
I don't know, do I?
I was at a mate's flat, it was about three in the morning.
So, you don't remember anything?
Just told you. I was off my face, I'd been drinking.
What's that got to do with anything, anyway?
Well, it's just we're trying to help you here, so...
Is that what you call it?
Yeah, we could just do with less of the attitude.
All right, there's no need to...
I'm sorry, too.
It's this whole thing with Martin.
Doing my head in, you know?
Right. Let's get full bloods done.
FBC, Us, Es, amylase,
LFTs and an abdominal CT.
Look, are you sure that you're...
Arthur, please! Just let me do this, OK?
So, you never made it to Chez Francoise.
Oh, dear, they'll blacklist you.
Tell me about it. Howie made that reservation three months ago.
You're having me on. You got married at birth?
Ah. Star-crossed lovers. How we doing?
-Any news on the teenager?
-Nothing from ED,
but I'm going up there in a minute, so I'll check for you.
We just...want to know he's all right.
That's very decent of you both, I must say.
Right. I'll get onto Radiology about that arm
and if they say yes, then you can start suturing.
You do know that Mary-Claire expects you to take her out tonight?
I highly doubt it, it's really not like that.
What's it like, then?
You know. Friends with benefits.
Love it. Talk about denial.
-She likes you. Really likes you.
That's serious, right?
Unfortunately, it does mean
that your heart is possibly in a worse state than I'd hoped.
OK, so what is the next step?
Well, I'd like to find out a bit more.
Let's do a BNP and we'll find out precisely what stage we're at.
Seeing as you were doing so well before,
I'm hoping that we can handle this with a change of medication.
Maybe alter your beta-blockers and your diuretics.
We'll monitor you for a while and hopefully...
See? Told you she wasn't one to freak out on us.
She's been stressing out about some assignment or other.
Although, I've got to say, you may have to alter your hectic schedule.
Well, good luck with that one. Maybe she'll listen to you.
Thanks, Mum. I am here, you know?
-Can I have a wee word?
Diuretics and beta-blockers?! She is way past that.
Yeah, and inotropic agents and ACE inhibitors once we get the BNP.
Come on. A BNP is just clutching at straws, the MRI's clear enough!
Oh, I see. So I should jettison her
onto the transplant waiting list, should I?
No! But you should at least moot the possibility with her.
It's only fair.
She's yellow, she's pasty, she is quite clearly
in the latter stages of heart failure.
And I've seen patients come back from this.
You should not be selling them this rosy outcome.
-You're just setting them up for a mighty fall.
I'm taking this one step at a time,
making sure I exhaust all possibilities!
What is going on?
I don't know, what is going on?
I can understand why she's not thinking straight,
-she has lost a child.
-Don't say it like that.
-Like this is something we see every day.
I wasn't suggesting...
Look, I've seen that woman go through hell and back,
and I'm not taking her back there.
It really isn't up to you. You might have to.
Please! You're going to have to come, she needs...
-Cos if you need a break...
Salutations. How we all doing?
We are all fine, thanks.
Sure you should be working?
Yes. I just wish everyone would stop checking up on me.
Sorry. Sorry, I didn't mean...
Well, I for one am definitely not checking up on you, so...
We've got a couple downstairs who hit a teenager
in their car last night, and they're very eager to trace him.
About ten? Roughly.
No. Nothing around then.
So, you couldn't find all that out on the phone?
OK, guilty as charged. My cover's blown.
Can I take her off your hands for a tea break, please?
-But I said I...
What? Yes, yes, of course.
I give up.
It's all right, it's all right, love.
She says she's feeling very nauseous
-and her headache's getting worse.
-I've got these palpitations...
-Let's get some oxygen. Are the bloods back?
She on any other medication?
No, I monitor all her medication.
Could be anything - vitamins, food supplements, anything different.
-She said no!
-Can we have a quick word?
Sorry, I think it's all getting to her now.
Yeah, and you too.
Yeah. It's just that... See, everything's been going so well,
I thought that... You know, thinking that maybe we...
If I can just get her over that threshold of Ben...
-This...this could be something or nothing, OK?
Maybe you should take a breather.
I think you need one.
Yeah, you're right, thank you.
I'll come and tell her.
OK. Let's increase her beta-blockers
and get another ECG, just to be safe.
I'm going to chase up those bloods.
-Yeah, I heard you.
He's...doing well. Should be back on the ward soon.
You haven't spoken to him?
I lost my phone, didn't I?
You really don't remember anything that happened?
That's what I said.
Right. It's just...how did you find your way here, then?
Told you. A mate dropped me off.
Right. It's just your ED notes say you came here on your own.
Yeah, cos, um... They dropped me at the entrance.
You told me you came in at 3am,
but it says there you came in around midnight.
I told you, I don't remember.
CT's ready for you.
But...but if you were unconscious,
they wouldn't have just left you, would they?
What you getting at?
Nothing. It's just if we're going to
treat you properly, we need to establish...
-Are you saying I'm lying?
-No, I'm just trying to...
Look, I was drinking. I was wasted.
Actually, your alcohol blood levels show up as normal.
Breaking news, mate.
Maybe I wasn't drinking.
Maybe...I was doing something else.
Look, I was...I was upset.
I was worried about Martin. Wouldn't you be?
Of course I would.
So can you just get off my back, please?!
What's going on?
About last night.
The timings don't add up...
..and this couple from AAU say they've hit someone.
He has a motive, that's all I'm saying.
Don't do this.
It's done. It's over.
I just want to draw a line under it, please.
-Course not. You're stuck in here. Who would be?
It's harder for my mum, I think.
Go ahead. I won't tell.
Oh, wow. Khai.
Is he the sensitive type, is he?
Looks like your poor wee heart's
taking a battering from all sides, eh?
-Don't. Please, don't.
Hey! I come bearing gifts. Cryptic crosswords...
I just need to run this by the boss.
Oh, come on.
'Pretty vague on the description.'
You know, kids have that sort of uniform nowadays, don't they?
And it was dark.
So, skinny, wearing a hoodie, ripped jeans, trainers.
Oh, they did say there were two of them.
One of them raced ahead.
Why, do you think you might have him upstairs?
Er, well, possibly... Just checking.
Oh, they did say he dropped his mobile phone
and it was handed in, if that's any use.
-Oh, yeah, yeah, it would be. Where?
Have a wee look at this.
That pattern is all over the place.
There's no reason why she should have that kind of R-on-T.
It could be down to general deterioration.
Yeah, her bloods aren't looking too clever either.
Look. It's not coagulating.
I think we should have another look at her meds.
She shouldn't be having these symptoms if she's been taking them.
-Laura says she checks her meds.
-Laura says a lot of things.
I just don't they're quite as synched as she likes to make out.
Why, cos her teenage daughter
won't tell her she's been dumped by her boyfriend?
Just saying. You'd think she'd have noticed.
Maybe she's got more important things on her mind,
like a congenital heart defect she's already lost one kid to.
Anyway, I don't think we've got time for family therapy right now.
Where you going?
Change of plan.
-Do you know, I'm not surprised she's in today.
That girl's a tough one underneath all the blonde.
Terrible, though, isn't it? Could have been any of us!
I'd like to see them mess with you.
I don't need to worry, I've got you to protect me.
Just remembered, Mr Levy, um...
-I actually have to leave early today.
Yeah, there's a...
Hep C foundation reception for junior doctors.
So many of these functions nowadays, can hardly keep up.
Right. Any thoughts, or shall we wait for a review?
No, I'd go ahead and suture, if I were you.
But look, be careful. That cut is very deep.
And you might need some assistance.
Well, I'm here. Why don't I help?
I asked you to stop this, you're not the police!
But it all fits!
They said this kid wasn't on his own.
This all happened about 15 minutes after you...
It could have been anyone!
Bit of a coincidence, don't you think?
There's his injuries, for a start, then the way he's acting.
You ask him anything, he hits the roof.
So what are you saying?
He got hit.
He thought he was going to be fine,
then the pain got too much, and he ended up here anyway.
-I know, I know you don't want to believe this.
Fine, fine. Well, maybe I'm wrong...
..but there's a really easy way to find out.
Arthur. Arthur, this is crazy. We shouldn't be doing this.
Here we go.
I'm going to do this on my own.
Yes, I agree it doesn't look good.
If it were me, I'd continue to treat with ace inhibitors and diuretics,
and put her on the transplant list anyway.
I know. I'm sorry, it's tragic.
-Twice in a row. But sometimes...
-There may be a way around this.
I could do a mitral valve repair.
Elliot, it's worth a shot. Anything's worth a shot.
The transplant list, it's a last resort.
It has to be, especially in this case.
I agree, but she may be too far gone.
I think we might be on the cusp here. We've got a narrow margin.
We go in now, we might just pull it off.
Put her on the list, and it's irreversible.
In a few days, she might be too ill to try anything else.
I suppose that's a valid argument.
Look, I trust your judgment.
You know her, you know the set-up.
Thank you, Professor.
So, how did you two meet?
Been together since we were 16.
Aw, childhood sweethearts.
Not so sweet to begin with, I can promise you that.
Every day he was telling me how, "We're not going to last."
Ah. Playing hard to get but soft on the inside.
He wasn't fooling me. Actions speak louder than words. Bless him.
Every year he pretends to forget - birthdays, anniversaries, the lot.
Then I have to pretend to be surprised
-when he springs something way too lavish on me.
I got these for you, darling.
You all right, love?
Yeah, just exhausted.
Have you got pains in your legs?
Oh, it's nothing. Must be the gardening.
Curse of the retired.
No harm in getting it looked at. Mary-Claire, could you see
-if Dr Wilde can take him under her wing, please?
Would you like to go in the wheelchair?
Such a lovely girl.
Oh, she's a trooper.
These red marks here - how long have you had them?
Hm, I don't know. A while. Can't say I've noticed them, really.
Right. Are they anywhere else?
No, I don't think so. Why?
Oh, just us young doctors, we're all nosy.
Might just take a blood test after I finish this.
So what? So what if it's my phone?
So you're now saying you WERE hit by that car?
-I'm not saying anything, not in a court of law.
-Look, can we...
Of course, you don't remember cos you were off your head,
so if I ask the lab to run a tox screen for narcotics,
they'll find some, yeah?
I dunno, do I? I dunno jack about how your lab works.
-I think we can safely say they'll find nothing.
No, this has gone far enough. Just give it up, OK?
Your story's full of holes, it doesn't hang.
You know and I know it's only a matter of time.
The couple will identify you, DNA evidence will place you at the scene,
-and there's plenty of that.
-Yeah, but it wasn't me who did it.
Wasn't you who did what?
You know, the...whatever.
Wasn't you who did that, right?
I swear, I didn't want to lie to you.
Course you didn't. Come on.
No, but...I owe these guys, I never meant to get you hurt.
They just said if I could just get the key to the drugs thing...
You banged her face into the bonnet.
-I freaked out, I wasn't thinking!
-Well, tell that to the police.
No! Please, I'm on my last warning.
You don't know what these guys are like.
People get stabbed every single day.
I was just scared.
Ooh! Going away somewhere?
No, no. Just looking...
No need to look so shifty. Look away, don't let me stop you.
So...this seminar tonight - you going together?
Do you all have to go, you know, to the Hep C Foundation?
Oh - that.
No, that's not tonight. That's next month.
Oh! CT's ready for Mr Epstein.
Nice. Very nice, mate. Thanks a lot. Be sure to pay you back some time.
-Now she's thinks I'm planning something.
-I told you it would end in tears.
-What do you care anyway?
But do your own dirty work, mate.
Yeah. Have you got the results?
I knew it. I knew he had something to do with this.
The police will be pleased.
Not often they get a chance to actually prosecute.
I know he looks all butter-wouldn't- melt, lying there in that bed...
Um...we'll need to tell Martin
before he gets the shock of his life when he gets back on the ward.
-I'll call him.
And uh, tell him we've called the police.
We are going to call...
-Oh, come on - please don't say you bought that sob story.
Do you think it's fun spending most of your life in care homes?
People still have choices. Not everyone in a care home ends up...
I know, but still, people make mistakes.
I believe him. I believe he's sorry.
Course you do! Because you don't want to believe
some people don't know the difference between right and wrong.
Look, I didn't mean it like that, it's just...
OK. It's not just about him, is it?
What about his so-called mates?
You just going to send them a message that this is OK?
-That they can just get away with it?
-I don't know...
People have to pay for what they've done. Everyone does. You know?
Even if they're...sorry.
Well, I need time to think about it.
Promise me you won't do anything.
So, if you operate, it has to be today? Now?
I'm afraid so. Look, we don't want you getting any worse.
I know this is six of one, half a dozen of the other.
-It's not an easy choice to make.
-But if the mitral valve repair works,
-she won't have to go on the list.
-For now, no. But...
Look, I want to be honest with you. There are risks.
And even if this operation works, you may need another one later.
-But there are always risks.
-Yes, that's true, but you need...
Look. There aren't many surgeons
-who would be willing to do this for you.
-Yes, they can fit you in.
You know what the transplant list is like. It can take months -
months in here getting worse.
You remember everything Ben had to go through.
Yeah, but this operation isn't a magic solution either.
Even then, when they find you a heart,
if they find you a heart...
you've been there.
And when they take yours out, there's no going back.
OK, but that really is the nightmare scenario,
it's not necessarily what...
A nightmare scenario we have all lived through.
You know I'm right, don't you?
If you had the option, you'd do anything to avoid a transplant.
Why else are you suggesting this?
Let's do it.
Are you sure?
OK. Let's put things in motion.
Are you sure?
I'm afraid so.
They're yet to confirm, but 99% certain it's syphilis.
it can't be! I've been fine!
It can lie dormant for years.
It's a dangerously clever little organism.
But...how's this happened?
I mean, of course I know how, but...
Well, at the risk of stating the obvious,
either from your husband or...
What? I've never! I would never!
OK. Well, that leaves...
Of course he wouldn't.
Anyway, it makes no odds because he would have to be tested as well.
It's highly infectious.
Left untreated, it can have very serious consequences.
Can we just wait until it's fully confirmed?
I want to tell him myself.
It was a long time ago.
It meant nothing at the time.
I thought, why tell him? It would only devastate him.
It was a mistake.
Have you never made a mistake?
-How did this start?
-I don't know, do I?
Think I've done this to myself?
-OK, looks like the bleed's got out of hand.
-It's all right. I'm all right.
-You're not. He's not, is he?
-It hurts all over.
We're dealing with him. He's going to be OK.
Give him five of morphine.
-My shoulder. My shoulder's killing me.
-This will start working soon.
It's all right, Cameron. Just hold on there, mate.
Page Mr Malick, we're going to take him in.
-What you looking at?
-Don't think I don't know what you're doing.
-Yeah? And what's that?
-She's the kindest person I've ever known.
-She'd give anyone a second chance.
-Shame you left her to it yesterday.
We didn't even have a knife. Loser.
Right. What have we got here?
Feel free to tell me to mind my own business, but...
About what you said about your mum before.
That doesn't mean you have to go with what she says.
-This is a big decision. If you need more time...
Is this about what happened earlier?
Believe me, I know that stuff can hurt like hell.
And that's fine, if that's what it is.
But...if it was something worse...
or just something more...
Look, I'm not going to say anything.
I had a termination.
Six months ago.
He didn't want to know. He still doesn't.
-I thought I could handle it, I really did.
-Listen to me.
You should not be facing something like this on your own.
You need your mum now.
-I think she'd want to know, she would never want you...
No. I'm dealing with it.
Dealing with it how?
-Hey, how are you doing?
Bottom line is we need to operate now.
It's OK, it's a very common procedure.
Could you let Martin know? I don't want him to worrying.
He's in pain... He's not well.
Let's make sure we've got the blood transfusions in theatre.
Digby. You with me?
Sorry? Yes, yes, of course.
Please, if you do call the police,
don't tell Martin till I'm out of there.
I want to tell him myself.
Whatever you're going to do, I meant what I said.
I'm so sorry.
-Listen to me.
See? Can't see any nerve damage,
-so it's not going to be from the accident, is it?
He's been complaining of pins and needles
-and a bit of impaired vision.
Let's do a neck CT.
-Is this Howie Epstein?
Any other symptoms?
-I have been trained to do this, you know.
-Just helping a mate out.
Is that what you call it?
Only I get the distinct feeling I'm being patronised here.
Simmer down! I was just...
Breaking news. Not all women are clueless desperados,
though you're obviously attracted to those who are.
I've got this one, thank you.
Yes, hello. Dr Tressler here.
I need a VDLR test on patient number...
Yep. Howie Epstein.
Right. She's off bypass.
Thanks, ladies and gents.
Paddles. Charge at ten joules.
No, don't do this to me now.
We've got a bleed. What the...
Mo! I found these in her stuff.
The lab's had a look. They're antidepressants. Long story.
She had a termination, swore me to secrecy.
OK. Let's double the clotting factors. I want...
Ah! I've got a tear at the back of the heart. Prolene, now.
You're not doing this to me. Uh-uh.
Well, it's a routine procedure, so I'm sure he'll be fine.
-Try not to worry too much.
-Not to worry? Really?
I shouldn't have let him get a whiff of me not being able to keep him.
-What's he gonna do? Of course he's gonna go off on one!
Where's he gonna go?
Been shunted from one care home to another until we got him.
-But if you can't...
-You don't understand.
Ours is the first place he could really...
You've no idea.
Lifetime of damage.
Just before Kate was diagnosed, we really thought he turned a corner.
It's gone so wrong.
I'm sorry. I'm sure you've got work to do.
No, no. It's OK.
Well, he's still got you, hasn't he?
And you'll get better.
And there'll be help around.
It's not too late.
OK. Let's try this.
Take her off.
If only I'd known. I never would have pushed ahead.
Yeah, well. We're all smarter in hindsight.
Listen, she's still here. You did that.
All we can do is just hope that she pulls through.
See? The neck CT came back clear. Everything else seems fine as well.
I mean, his reflexes are a bit delayed.
Bless him, he's putting on a lot effort to hide it.
I was beginning to wonder why he was so anxious about finding the kid,
if he was the one who caused the accident.
We haven't done a tox yet, have we?
-Well, the police breathalysed him, but...
-Have you thought of...
But I can repeat that.
I can also do a lumbar puncture for an immunoglobulin.
Excellent. Get to it.
-Yeah, course I am.
You look like a naff toothpaste advert.
Thought you might like to see this.
So you knew she had syphilis
-and you didn't think for one second to say anything to me?
-I did try to.
-You sent me packing.
-Oh, don't give me that!
I don't know why you're hitting the roof, I did your job for you.
You did my... You really are a piece of work, aren't you?
At least that accounts for his symptoms, anyway.
Don't worry, you can claim that diagnosis. I won't tell anyone.
Anyway. Here, Diddums. Something to cool you down.
You are so going to pay for this.
I know. I've been a very naughty boy.
I need to be punished.
-You're a vengeful little thing, aren't you?
-All because I didn't cover your back.
-I don't know what you mean.
If you don't want to take her out, why don't you just tell her?
None of your business.
Am I interrupting something?
-How are you feeling?
-Still with us at least.
I found your pills. And I don't mean your heart medication.
How long have you been taking them?
A few months.
Where did you get them?
Don't tell me. Internet?
Hattie, antidepressants have well-documented side effects,
especially when taken in inappropriate doses.
It would severely interfere with your heart medication.
She knows about everything. We nearly lost you in there.
I just thought for a few months, just to help me through it.
-What about your mum?
-You don't know what she's like.
It's like she's there but she's not really there. I couldn't.
I know she seems so together, but it's all a show.
She cries herself to sleep every night. She never got over him.
But prescribing yourself? You know how dangerous that is?
Unfortunately, you've done some real damage to your heart.
We've been very lucky.
You know I have to tell your mum, right?
No. You can't. You can't say anything.
You've done it! You did it! You actually did it!
Thank you so much!
Hattie, I knew you'd be all right. I knew it. Love!
Will you excuse us, please?
Well, we have to tell her. She only just pulled through.
Look, I know. But she's a minor.
-Technically. She is 16.
Hattie? You OK?
-We can't tell...
-KNOCK ON DOOR
-I don't know what's happened.
Hattie! Can you hear me?
SHE BREATHES HEAVILY
That one, there. Bed four.
-What have you done?
-Stay away from me. I've done nothing.
Hang on, please. What's this all about?
-I'm sorry. I'm sorry.
-It's not what it looks like...
-Can we just hang on here?
-Maybe we should just do this in...
-Why don't you shut your mouth?
Big man now, are you? Where were you yesterday, when she needed you?
You stood there like a spare part.
You've done nothing to help her!
She may be tamponading.
BP is low, CVP's high. I think we've got another bleed.
-Another bleed? What do you mean?
-BP is 70 over 50.
-Let's get an echo, we might have to take her back in.
-I thought we were on top...
-The operation was complex. Her heart is weak, there were complications.
What complications? You never said anything!
We said there were risks.
-It's happening again. I don't believe it.
-It's Ben all over again.
-This really isn't helping Hattie.
Right, forget the echo, call theatre, page Elliot.
-What? No, you are not taking her.
-You need to trust us, Laura.
-We know what we're doing, we will do everything we can for...
-Trust you? That's what you said last time!
You said he had every chance and his heart was a perfect fit.
That's what you said. You convinced me.
You took him away and I never got to see him,
I never got to say goodbye to my own son.
-That's not fair.
-Mum! It's not her fault.
You can tell her.
-Let's get her to theatre, please.
-Tell me what? What?
Please. Just let me explain.
There's nothing to say.
I get it.
You called the police for me, right?
Cos I would never be able to make the right decision, would I?
No, that's not right.
Please, just stop crying. Please open the door. Please.
I asked you to stay out of it. You promised.
I couldn't bear the thought of him taking advantage of you.
You went behind my back.
But then you weren't really thinking of me, were you?
You were just trying to make yourself feel better.
I'm really sorry. I obviously didn't know till I took her in.
..the antidepressants have made her heart much weaker?
I really did think that operating was her best chance.
I did it in good faith.
I was going to do anything to prevent a transplant.
I thought that's what you wanted.
What I wanted? What I want is for her to live.
You really mustn't blame yourself.
You've lost a son, she's lost a brother.
You were both just trying to protect each other.
I mustn't blame myself?
You've obviously never been a mother.
I just wanted...
I don't want you thinking that I called them.
Could you give us a second, please?
-It's fine. He won't do anything.
-Yes, of course.
I know it feels like this is the end of the road.
But if you explain to the judge, he or she might be sympathetic.
-They might not send you to prison.
I said, shut up.
Get out of here.
-Trying to make yourself feel better, are you?
-No, no. I just...
Look at you! What would you know about it, you stupid cow?
-This is it for me!
He'll never have me back now.
This was my last chance, and you wrecked it.
Oh, no. Don't do that. You'll hurt...
Do you know what I want?
Do you want to know what I really want?
I want that scar I gave you to never fade.
Please, let me go.
Get off her!
Are you happy now?
-So, they've confirmed it?
You knew the accident was Howie's fault, right?
That's because the syphilis
may have started to have neurological effects.
Left untreated, it can cause dementia, blindness, paralysis.
But the good news is that we got it in time.
It's treatable with antibiotics.
The bad news, I'm afraid,
is that my colleague is giving him the diagnosis right now.
He may well forgive you.
And then again...
..he may not.
I'll go and sort out the antibiotics.
I know. You're sorry.
-Yeah, you know...
-Just a bit of a misunderstanding, really.
Not the end of the world.
Especially as you're gonna make it up to me.
We're booked in at 7.30pm. The Elderberry Hotel.
Champagne dinner and a luxury suite.
You are, baby.
Next time, don't leave your credit card and jacket just lying around.
So the repair was as successful as it could have been.
The valve is holding...for now.
But obviously, as Ms Effanga has told you,
her heart is considerably weaker.
The antidepressants have complicated her pre-existing problem.
I think we've put her through enough intervention.
Our best bet now is to place her on the transplant list.
-Not now. I have to be with Hattie now.
He's calmed down now.
Police will stay with him until he's charged.
As is his foster dad.
That's a positive to come out of this mess.
Not that you should accept it, but I am really, really sorry.
You know, I should have never gone behind your back,
and if you never, ever forgive me, I'll back you all the way. I...
I'm a coward, always have been.
Don't be silly.
I'm the coward.
It's staring me in the face, but I just don't want to see it.
I mean, when am I just going to grow up?
No, no, that's exactly what you shouldn't do!
Listen to me, listen to me. You are the kindest, cleverest,
most amazing person I've ever known.
You know, I've never met anyone like you.
Ah, that's lovely.
So don't you ever dare change, Nurse Lane.
Only cowards change because people want them to.
