Episode Summary

Seize The Night
Max arrives back in A&E as a patient's broken leg is being set. He proposes to Tina and then finds his first patient is a dog, who has been bitten by his owner's snake. It's taken to the staff room to recuperate whilst it's owner goes to do her snake act. But when the snake bites her, she's rushed back into Casualty but there's no snake venom because it was used on the dog. After frantic calls to surrounding hospitals, some is finally found and she is saved. Two sets of parents are at their wits ends after their daughters are rushed into A&E. The twelve-year-old is allergic to light and was knocked down by a car, as she ran after her father. Quick thinking by Max saves the day, when he orders the lights to be dimmed but she has extensive burns to her hands and face. Her parents are reunited and decide to go with her, on her dream holiday to America. The fourteen-year-old is pregnant by a young man who works for her father. He issues orders for the boyfriend to be beaten up and dumped outside Casualty but when the father accidentally meets the other girl, he's impressed by her attitude. He goes and talks to the boyfriend, who admits he's not ready to become a father and agrees to severe his relationship with teenager. It's left to the father to pick up the pieces. At the end of the shift, Patrick takes pity on the dog and smuggles it out and takes it home for the night. Events of the day make Max realise he is far from being over his son's death. A disappointed Sean watches Tina leave with Max.moreless
