Episode Summary[]

Jean is fussing over Sicknote, who is happy to be home. Kevin hears from a stable boy about the fixed dog race and goes to confront Charlie, who tells him that he paid Jim to dope Blue Watch. Blue Watch are called to a burning Sea Scouts' hut, where lots of flares are stored. When they explode, they cause a serious threat to the firemen, while the Sea Scouts only laugh. On returning to the station, Kevin learns that his father is in hospital. George drives Kevin to the hospital to support his mum, but when they arrive they are told that he has died.

In court, the car driver gives a tearful testimony, but mentions seeing a single headlight just before his car was hit. After some grilling from the QC and the judge, he reluctantly admits that it was from the motorbike that caused Bayleaf to swerve and crash the pump-ladder. As a result, it is proven that the motorcycle existed and thus Bayleaf is found not guilty of dangerous driving, and most of Blue Watch head back to the Wilsons' house to celebrate. Nick goes to see Diana, but finds a stranger in her flat, erupts in jealousy and leaves again. The Pearces have prepared a house warming party, but no one turns up as they are all still at Bayleaf's. Kevin finds a box left to him by Jim; it is full of the money he won betting against Blue Watch. He breaks down in tears. Meanwhile everyone is left in stunned silence when Maggie appears at Bayleaf's party with her Thai toyboy.
