Steve attends to a young, attractive woman, Tanya, who is suffering burns to her face and neck. From the outset it's obvious the pair know each other but neither are forthcoming about how or from where. This pricks Gabrielle's curiosity and dormant feelings for Steve. And Steve's continued reluctance, despite being found out on a lie, does little to allay her feelings. But Gabrielle is nowhere near prepared for the truth of the situation nor the lengths Steve is willing to go to in order to save the woman's life.
Charlotte's day in court arrives, as her civil suit for defamation is heard in front of a magistrate. Her plan rests squarely on the unvarnished strength of her reputation. Her years as a doctor will speak volumes for her character, and Frank comes along to provide a character assessment to this purpose.
But once Charlotte is on the stand she soon finds that while her reputation as a doctor is impeccable, the same can't be said for the rest of her life. Will Charlotte's grand plan to address the accusations made against her by Rhiannon backfire? Or will Rhiannon finally gather the courage to tell the truth?
Hayden, a painter, has fallen from a cherry picker while working on a house, and suffered severe injuries. His workmate, Justin, is also injured. But when Hayden's girlfriend arrives in the Department, we learn that this triangle is more complicated than first realised.

When Justin has an adverse drug reaction, truths come to the surface that no one is prepared for.
And Bart might just have to rethink his friendship with Erica and Dan as a consequence.
