After Abs suffers a gun shot wound after trying to calm down Dean, Tess begins to prepare the department for the impending rush of patients from the shooting. Marilyn is forced to scrub up and is given all of the gruesome task from Tess. Dean is shot by the police and is rushed into resus, where he crashes yet still dies even after she preforms a tracheotomy. Tess treats Abs and tells him that the trust can not be held responsible and will not let Abs help out. He disregards Tess' orders and gets Dean's mum to open up and to tell the police that it was Dean who shot her. Adam's patients waters break just as he is about to leave for a party. Adam and Alice then begin to take her up to the ward when the elevator breaks. After receiving a call from his girlfriend asking where he is, the sound of the woman in labour makes her think that Adam is cheating on her and she breaks up with him. The pair are forced to deliver the baby in the lift. Adam's claustrophobia begins to worsen forcing Alice to take the lead in helping to birth the baby. Tess warns Ruth and Nadia that one of them is lying and that she wants the truth by the end of the day or there will be a formal investigation of how the patient was injured in the hospital. With Harry's daughter still missing after the shooting, he snaps at Marilyn after she complains about missing pudding even with all of the injured patients who are also not here by choice. When Harry's daughter turns up, it transpires that Dean has hid his younger daughter in the car after he could not bring himself to kill her. Nadia decides to take full responsibility and hands in her resignation to Tess.
