When a brawl at the local pub turns fatal, Hugh learns that they can't save them all. But things only get worse when the transplant team arrives from Sydney, and it's led by Hugh's ex-colleague and long term rival, Daniel. Hugh desperately attempts to hide the fact that he is now working as a country GP, but it's not long before Daniel has exposed him. In the process, Hugh ridicules Whyhope Hospital, and inadvertently offends Penny, Betty and Ken.

When Hugh and Penny go to give vaccinations to a rural family they have a run-in with Craig, a farmer with a shotgun. Forced to talk his way out, Hugh is given a fast lesson in what's involved in being a country doctor. Which is lucky, for when Hugh realises that Betty's friend has a subdural haemorrhage, it calls for some low-tech fast thinking, and he drills a bore hole into the man's skull to reduce the pressure.

Meanwhile, Charlie and Matt are dealing with the aftermath of Charlie's ectopic pregnancy, and Meryl begins on a series of well meaning, but misguided attempts to comfort her. The family gets together for Ajax's sixteenth birthday dinner, complete with an outlandish present from Hugh: a Ducati. During dinner Hugh is outed by a tweet from Ken, and the whole family discover why he is really back in Whyhope.
