Series 1, Episode 9 - Emergency

Before Mac leaves he gives Guy one last bet - that he cannot have sex with Joanna. Martin decides to get his revenge on Guy by opening his post, but when he does he uncovers a horrible secret. These two situations combine leading to a incident involving Guy, Mac, Martin, botox, an ambulance, a field full of sheep and a cliff.

Further details

Caroline still can't believe that Mac is moving to Sheffield and tries her best to deter him but with no luck. Martin makes a horrifying discovery, that Guy is in fact his half-brother and Mac and Guy set the ultimate bet - for Guy to sleep with Joanna, who unbeknownst to him is in fact his mother.

Things begin to look up for the staff, with Mac and Caroline kissing and finally becoming a couple and Martin asking out Karen, who of course is delighted. However, things suddenly take a turn for the worse when Guy and Joanna realise their relationship to each other and after a fight between Martin and Guy, a botox stabbing and an ambulance stealing incident, things end in a literal cliffhanger.
