Episode Summary[]

Owen appears at Blackwall looking for Sicknote, who lectures him about not smoking. Blue Watch are called to a mortuary; a dead body is handcuffed to a briefcase. They not only need the case cut from the person's hand, but need it unlocked as well. Hyper offers to unpick the lock in one minute. He does so, but then gets squirted by the case's anti-theft spray.

At the next shout they head to a flat where an angry woman has doused herself and her ex's belongings in petrol and is threatening to commit suicide. The others all leave while Sally tries to talk her round. Sally convinces her to come out, but then the thermostat automatically switches on. The spark ignites the petrol and the flat bursts into flames. Sally is distraught.

Blackwall get a new cleaner, named Rosie. Chris wastes no time in trying to chat her up. After work, George finds that Kelly has invited her entire college class to their house. They row about it afterwards, so George goes out for a drink with Sally and the lads to drown his sorrows. Later that night Chris helps a very drunk George back into his house, then stays to chat with Kelly, who confides that their marriage is having troubles. As he is about to leave, Chris and Kelly kiss passionately.
