With Zara and Daniel both away indefinitely, Heston tells Howard to offer Emma a permanent position. But when Howard offers her the contract she rejects it saying that, for personal reasons, locum work is more suitable. As Heston frets about having to hire a new GP, Emma tells Chris the news; he’s pleased she turned it down. Emma jokes about how it would have been a recipe for disaster and in return, Chris invites her to join the group down the pub.
At the end of the day, Chris, Emma, Heston, Howard, Jas, Mandy and Valerie join the quiz at the Icon Bar. They all relax as they chat about the recent away day organised by Howard, who can’t help but laugh at the memory of Heston in combat gear. Then Heston proposes their next challenge – a quiz. He will organise it before Howard goes on holiday – after all, after what he put them all through, he can’t possibly miss it! Howard is left in no doubt that Heston is after revenge.
When Kevin loudly asks Jas why he didn’t hear her and Aran coming in last night after their date, Jas is forced to admit to everyone that they’ve split up, although she insists it’s not permanent. She tells Mandy about her guilt over reigniting their relationship in the first place and Mandy reassures her you can’t make yourself love someone. Jas knows she’s right.
Also, Kevin has an eventful day when he upsets a military wife and mother by not wearing his poppy.
