Episode Summary[]

Sicknote is forced to spend the night on the couch with a black eye. At the fire station a debrief about the bungled shout at the warehouse is held. Pearce tries to blame everybody but himself for the incident, which doesn't go unnoticed by the rest of the watch and the presiding officer, who tells him that he thinks he is a "pain in the arse".

Scaffolding collapses in a shopping parade, trapping people and a whole bus underneath. George evacuates a man down a ladder, Kevin and Billy have to climb into the rubble where they manage to free a young woman. Nick is surprised to get a phone call from Kevin, who is deep inside the tangled masses of scaffolding in a shop. They find the missing baby and get her out. Afterwards Nick and Hallam have a chat about Geoff.

Kevin takes his parents to the race track. Sicknote comes home only to realize that Jean has walked out on him and is now staying with her sister. Nick complains to Diana about her father being his boss, but she dismisses his doubts. A new firefighter, Sally Reid, arrives at Blackwall, almost knocking over Sicknote and Pearce when she drives into the station rather recklessly. Geoff is called to Georgiadis’ office and is informed that he must take a refresher BA course after the incident at the hostel site. Recall receives a phone call from Laura, informing him that Jamie has been taken to hospital because a donor has been found. While everyone else goes on a shout, Bayleaf takes Recall to the hospital.
