It’s a day of reckoning for May and Adam as they are brought face to face with the past.
May’s guilt over betraying, and then deserting, Yuki is starting to overwhelm her and haunts her every moment. When Yuki is finally found, he has been living rough and is dehydrated and too disoriented to communicate. His friends can only watch helplessly. May then opens an envelope of white powder, sparking a suspected anthrax alert which causes the ED to be shut down.
Trapped in resus is Jimmy, a seven-year-old boy who has been hit by a car. The driver is Tina, a woman who is determined to avenge the death of her own daughter who was murdered as a schoolgirl by Jimmy’s mother, Anna. Thrown into turmoil, Anna’s husband rejects her but Anna is desperate for forgiveness. When Jimmy takes a turn for the worst, only Tina holds the key to his survival.
Also trapped in the lockdown, May looks on as Yuki lies prone and uncommunicative. Faced with the human results of her betrayal, she finally finds the courage to own up to her duplicity – but she may have alienated Yuki, and everyone else, for good.
Meanwhile, Adam’s grief resurfaces and his trauma at Harry’s death is brought into sharp focus. And it looks as though Charlie might become a grandparent after all.
