Max feels a sense of nervous anticipation as today is the day she’s meeting up with her estranged daughter Lily, while also juggling her work responsibilities. Ric and Ange worry about the fact that Max is trying to achieve too much and that her patient might be side-lined. Meeting up in a park, Max is poleaxed at first sight of her child.
Band 5 ED Nurse David Hide, is recruited on Darwin to assist but Jac keeps reiterating to Fletch – it’s a specialised nursing role – and questions whether David has the relevant specialism – 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’s remains tense as she waits for her CT scan to see if her cancer has returned. Sacha stays positive, buoyed by the fact that privately, 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.
