After surveying the charred remains of her house, Dixie decides to have it out with the Malones. At their flat, Dixie finds Sammy Malone in a bad way but as she rushes to help, Sammy’s brother Callum orders her to let Sammy die. As Dixie refuses and calls for back-up, she spots needle marks on Sammy’s arms and knows she’s been given an overdose of morphine.
As Sammy is brought into resus, Callum is seen by a cancer patient, Ronny, who has a history with the Malone brother. After Ronny launches at Callum wounding him with a scalpel, Dixie warns Callum that she knows he injected Sammy with morphine, and if he threatens her again she’ll tell his mother what he tried to do. Callum smugly tells her she already knows…
