Ric and Ange worry about the fact that Max is trying to achieve too much and that her patient might be sidelined. Meeting up in a park, Max is poleaxed at first sight of her child.
Band Five Emergency Department nurse David Hide is recruited on Darwin to assist, but as Jac keeps reiterating to Fletch it’s a specialised nursing role, and she questions whether David has the relevant specialism: to her he’s a glorified paramedic.
Kian tries in vain to support David by encouraging him to relax, which ultimately makes him even more frustrated and baffled.
Essie remains tense as she waits for her Computed Tomography scan to see if her cancer has returned. Sacha stays positive, buoyed by the fact that privately, he's decided that he wants to propose to Essie. He lets Dom in on the idea but swears him to secrecy. Essie and Dom eventually make up after Dom’s illicit kiss with Ben, but bad news is on the horizon.
