Julia and Macy arrive at the scene — people are wounded and dying, most of them children. Marina arrives. In resus, nurses balk at treating the shooter, and Wayne insists they be professional. Julia passes the shooter in the corridor — she knows him: Danny, who she tried to have sectioned months ago. Julia worries his wife and child might be among the victims. She then has to tell one of the fathers that she was unable to save his daughter. In all the chaos, a patient seems to recognises Gosia, but calls her Margot — she denies knowing him.

Julia congratulates Arch on passing his Fellow of Emergency Medicine exam and pleads with him to accept the Deputy Directorship. Wayne and Macy take off on a medivac to rescue an electrocuted man. Gosia's ex husband, John, arrives at the hospital from Alice Springs looking for her. Gosia wants nothing to do with him and tells Arch that he used to beat her up. The next morning John grabs her at home, but it is the act of a grief stricken man — he never beat her — she was just bored of her life with him. Wayne rebels against the practice of wearing helmets while on medivacs. When the team are called out on another medivac to the same farm for to attend to another electrocution, in exactly the same circumstances as before, Wayne and Julia extract the real story — the workers are intentionally electrocuting themselves, believing it is a cure for Ross River Fever.

Arch reluctantly accepts the Deputy Directorship, much to Wayne's horror.
