The ED is united in grief on the morning of murdered medic Cal Knight’s funeral. Doctor Ethan Hardy is especially determined to give his brother a memorable send off. Ethan quickly loses focus on the funeral, however, after he collects Cal’s bloodstained possessions from the hospital. Instead he becomes determined to find out everything he can of Cal’s final moments…

Spotting an opportunity, Ethan volunteers to work a shift prior to the funeral when the understaffed ED is faced with a coach crash. When no one is looking, however, Ethan sneaks into classified files and grabs a copy of Cal’s post-mortem! It’s then he makes the horrifying discovery that dying Cal was conscious when he was brought into the ED…

Devastated by the post mortem and in emotional turmoil, Ethan leaves the ED and gets really drunk!

He makes it to his brother’s funeral but will he say something he regrets?
