Julia is furious when Daniel makes front page news in a story claiming that he conned Malcolm out of his inheritance. Julia’s worried about what it says about the practice employing a doctor with Daniel’s history and calls a partners meeting. But the other partners don’t want to sack Daniel, particularly Heston, who thinks Daniel has been punished for his past mistakes and isn’t guilty of any wrong-doing this time.
Daniel can’t see what he’s done wrong, claiming he needs the money for Izzie. But Lily argues that dragging the surgery into another scandal won’t help Izzie if he loses his job. Daniel goes to see Julia and she warns him that it’s likely Lisa will have seen the newspaper too and says he’ll be lucky if she ever lets him see Izzie again.
Elsewhere, Lily’s desperate to scupper Heston’s attempts to move into her house – but when he buys an antique chest of drawers for the bedroom, Lily can’t deny how beautiful it is. Lily’s defeated and Heston moves his stuff in.
Also, Karen helps an old colleague who has fallen on hard times to see that her pride is holding her back from moving on.
