Nick returns to the station and reprimands Billy and Pearce for fighting. Geoff reiterates that he did not tell Scase about the uniforms and Nick tells him that Billy did not know what his friends were using them for. A man who is decorating accidentally sets himself on fire and George overreacts when trying to save him. Pearce notices that Sandra is job hunting again and unsurprisingly, she bumps into Patti at the job centre. Uncle Yanni and his friends appear at the station to confront Nick about Ariadne in front of the whole watch.
Nick is summoned to see ACO Bulstrode at HQ. Bulstrode is set to retire and warns Nick that he will be stuck at Blackwall for the foreseeable future. Scase then appears at the office and Bulstrode takes the opportunity to finally tell him what he thinks of him, to the obvious enjoyment of Nick. Back at Blackwall, Sally asks Nick for a transfer to the north west area so she can be nearer to her sick father.
The Fire Brigade holds a charity raft race for the burns charity RAFT. Nick appears in public with Ariadne for the first time, causing gossip, especially from Patti. Midway through the race George learns that Kelly has gone into labour so he dashes off in his pirate costume. Outside the maternity ward, Kelly's brother Les insults George once too often, so George punches him, bursting his nose in the process and tells a nurse to send him down to casualty in case it's broken much to Denzil's amusement. Back at the race, Blue Watch are up against the officers and discover from Suffolk that Scase is on the team. Scase tries to grab Sicknote and accidentally tears off his hair piece which terrifies him enough for the officers to lose the raft race. Ariadne tells Nick that she is pregnant.
