Kate goes to see her GP, she asks for a pregnancy test and explains what happened to her doctor, who thinks it's best that she also has a test for any STD. She later goes home and informs Mary that she'll know whether she's pregnant or not, in a couple of days. Kate also tells Mary that she's considering having an AIDS test, but Mary thinks Kate should go and see 'whatshisname'.
A man breaks into a porsche and his girlfriend gets in and they drive away from the scene at full - speed. Later, they meet another man and take the car into an old disused garage. The girl and one of the men leave, leaving two people inside. The doors get chained so no - one can get in or out. One of the men put a tape on as the other starts working on the underside of the car. It suddenly catches alight and a bucket of water is thrown over the flames causing an explosion and the flames get larger. The men try to get out, but they're locked in.
Malcolm enters Nick's office after being called up during role - call. Nick asks him if he'll accompany a retired - fire fighter for a day out with a brigade car. Malcolm informs Nick that he has leave on the day Nick suggests as he's planning to see Helen off at the airport.

The watch arrive on the scene of the garage fire. Nick asks two people who are standing nearby, if anyone is down there. A woman informs him that no - one can be down there as it hadn't been used for anything for ages. Crews are sent down anyway and Hallam goes down and cuts the chain and informs Nick on the extent of the fire. After the crew enter, there's a slight explosion so Nick asks for another crew to go in. As he tackles the flames, Recall notices gas cylinders. Debris in the building begins to collapse and Kevin gets burried and his main valve begins to leak. Malcolm and Sicknote then enter the fire and Colin and Hallam rig - up, before going in to help the others free Kevin.
The girl and man arrive back on the scene, noticing the fire. The girl rushes out of the car and tells George that her boyfriend is down there. Inside the building, both Sicknote and Hallam notice bodies.
Sicknote cycles over to Cynthia's with his text so they can 'reherse' for the production.

After Lil closes the door, George calls through the letterbox at Kelly, hoping she will go down. Kelly finally goes up to her bedroom window, where she calls George. He asks if she's ok and she tells him that she can't go home, not when Beattie's still there.
Zoe moans at Colin about telling his mum about moving in with her. But Colin is pre - occupied with the football on the TV and isn't really listening. Zoe then turns the TV off, before arguing a bit more with Colin and realising he'll never move out, then she storms out of the room. Colin then tries to coax Zoe back in the living room, through the crack in the door. He also puts the TV back on, but the volume down, so he can still watch the match. Colin promises to Zoe that he'll tell his mum and that he'll move in with her at the weekend.
The next day... Malcolm introduces the retired - fire fighter to different officers, he then has a tour of the London Fire Brigade museum. The retired - fire fighter notices his medal on display, which he was presented in 1940 after the Blitz. He explains that he tried to put out trucks full of amunition, which nearly blew up and he fell down flat.
Mary waits around outside the local police station, then approaches Don as he leaves...
The watch are in the mess, the TV is on and no - one is watching it. The majority of them are arguing about cards and Kate is sitting alone with her thoughts. Sicknote is complaining to Maggie about the vinegar in the food, although she explains other watch's had it in their food, but no - one else noticed it or even complained. Kate gets up and turns the TV off, not being able to take it anymore as Nick and Hallam enter, who explains that they're all going to be part of a basketball team.
