Trainee nurse Peri Lomax (Ruby O’Donnell) swings into action to put her nursing skills to good use and help those suffering, but she embarrasses herself in front of Edward Hutchinson (Joe McGann) when she tells him to step aside and he reveals he is actually a surgeon and knows what he’s doing!

Mercedes tells Diane O’Connor (Alex Fletcher) and her son Finn (Keith Rice) that they can use The Dog for the wake instead but Grace Black (Tamara Wall) is furious to hear Mercedes offering to help out when she still believes it was Harry who caused the car crash that nearly killed her.
