It's early morning and Jimmi and DI Tom Stanton are at the scene of a stabbing. There is no victim, just a lot of blood. Jimmi comments that the knife found at the scene is similar to the one used on Reece. Tom agrees, pointing out that it is clearly gang related. Jimmi advises that the victim could still be alive, if he applied pressure to the wound and got to hospital.

As he is leaving, Jimmi finds a bloody fingerprint on a nearby car. Tom is thrilled as this leads him to their victim – Craig Benz, who is currently in St Phil's. Tom tries to convince Craig to testify. Craig refuses, arguing that if he talks, the gang will kill him and his family.

Back at the station, Tom and Jimmi discuss Zara. Jimmi asks if she knows what she is letting herself in for and Tom replies that she seems pretty tough. Jimmi agrees, but can't hide his worry.

Meanwhile, Ruhma treats 15-year-old Lily, who is 32 weeks pregnant. Lily admits that she has been hiding the pregnancy from her dad, who will be furious when he finds out. Then Lily's boyfriend arrives – it's Austin. He also confesses that his mum doesn't know about the baby, claiming that she has a lot on.

Ruhma reveals that she is concerned at the baby's size – it might be okay, but they need to check with the doctor to be sure. Zara examines Lily, who is full of admiration for the woman who is going testify against Reece's killer. Zara points out that she hasn't done anything yet, but is clearly moved by this vulnerable young couple. She refers them to the ante-natal unit, just as a precaution.

Later, Zara and Ruhma agree that social services need to be informed, as Lily isn't going to get the support she needs from home.

Elsewhere, Mrs Tembe encounters a patient whose every action is narrated by a voice in his head. Can she convince him to seek help?
