The events of the previous week's episode are seen from a different perspective, revealing the events that led up to and beyond Daisha's shocking shooting... Having joined Joseph on his wild rampage across the city following his break-up with Faye, Daisha finds herself being held hostage by gunmen in an Indian restaurant. Heroic Joseph seems to save the day but only on leaving the restaurant does Daisha realise that she's been caught in the crossfire and has fallen unconscious. Rushed to hospital, Daisha's co-workers fight to save the nurse's life. It's touch and go until the surprise return of Connie Beauchamp saves the day and Daisha's stabilised. Despite Connie's shock return to the operating room, the consultant still swears she's not returning to the hospital full time until CEO Vanessa Lytton is given her marching orders. Meanwhile, Elliot feels the strain of running theatre after being deserted by new consultant Toby Geddes. Michael, shocked by Geddes's dangerous attitude to work, has no option but to fire the new arrival. He informs Connie that she may not have to wait long to see Vanessa removed from Holby after today's shocking mis-management. Elsewhere, the gun-man is rushed to theatre – will the staff help save the man who shot Daisha; Faye and Joseph face an uncertain future...
