This week in Shieldinch…and anxious Leyla returns to work after her hostage ordeal while Dr Dan faces up to past demons; Tatiana makes a big decision which devastates husband, Bob; and internal affairs arrive to investigate DS Grant over the fatal Mandy Kennedy shooting.

With marital disharmony growing between them, Tatiana tells Bob their marriage is over. Shocked and stunned, Bob’s pleas to give their relationship another go falls on deaf ears and she leaves.

Uncomfortable with Tatiana’s news, Dr Dan feels responsible and shuts off emotionally from Tatiana – leading her to take his lack of interest as rejection.
