Hypochondriacal Mrs Dethick is re-admitted, adding to Den's problems.

Kim finds help from an unexpected quarter, while Hilary is a man on a mission as the different designations of waste offer him a way back onto the ward.

Megan is having trouble drumming up support for the forthcoming strike, while Pippa benefits from previously unseen talents hidden away on K2.

The lights go down on another shift at K2 leaving Mrs Dethick in the dark, and Den in a dark place.

With Megan moody and Pippa scornful, Kim reluctantly turns to Damaris for help with her studies and sparks off an unexpected alliance.
