Series finale: Monroe is finally forced to confront the painful truth about his past when a lively night shift at the hospital suddenly takes a darker turn. The day of reckoning has finally arrived for the trainees as they face their assessments, and Monroe tries to persuade Bremner to make Shepherd stay.
Monroe (James Nesbitt) is finally forced to confront the painful truth about his past when a lively night shift at the hospital suddenly takes a darker turn. When a thirteen year old girl is admitted following a road accident, Monroe knows that there is little chance of saving her and an operation could leave her severely damaged. However, her father begs him to operate and give her a chance to live – whatever the consequences. Shepherd (Tom Riley) sees that Monroe is wavering and accuses him of allowing his emotions to cloud his judgement. But Monroe is a father as well as a surgeon, and seeing this young girl makes his own pain come flooding back. Can Monroe save her, and will he ever be able to let go of his own grief and make peace with his family?
Shepherd is still smarting from his break up with Bremner (Sarah Parish), but finds it impossible to avoid her at the hospital. When Monroe discovers that he is thinking about leaving, he begs Bremner to give his best friend a second chance, but Shepherd is not prepared for what Bremner has to tell him. Meanwhile, the competition between the trainees intensifies as the day of their assessments arrives. Springer (Luke Allen-Gale) is sure that Monroe wants to get rid of him, but Wilson (Michelle Asante) has a surprise in store. Witney (Christina Chong) is frustrated when she loses out on a training opportunity to Mullery (Andrew Gower), but Mullery has bigger concerns as Fortune (Manjinder Virk) continues to feel the impact of her surgery.
