EPISODE 6 MAP OF THE HEART - Part 1
Andrew organises a practice
meeting and pushes David for confirmation that he will be attending.
Ronnie has taken a shine to
Bridget and sets about chatting her up, however she seems more interested in
Andrew when he arrives at the hospital to check on Ronnie's progress.
Joanna is dealing with
surgery alone as David is seeing Patricia. Patricia tells David that she is
leaving for America in two days time. Sheís confused and asks him what they are
going to do. Back at The Beeches Dawn doesnít want to get David in trouble by
alerting Joanna to the fact that David is late. She goes into Davidís office and
calls him on his mobile telling him to get back to the surgery immediately. As
she puts the phone down a drop of water falls on David's desk. As quick as she
mops it up another drop appears and soon she notices a puddle of water emerging.
Within seconds reception is full of Dawn's screams as the ceiling to David's
office caves in on her. Chaos proceeds the disaster with Andrew and Joanna
frantically trying to keep things together. Andrew is furious that David isnít
present and insists that tonight he and Joanna must finally sort out David's
commitment to the practice. Things get worse as the water goes in to the
electrics and the system blows. Andrew tells Joanna to evacuate The Beeches.
ANDREW: This place is falling down around our ears
David arrives home and finds
that Claire has booked a holiday to Madrid so that they can take William to see
her parents. She tells David they need to get away and talk to each other but he
rejects her kiss and tells her he has to meet Andrew and Joanna. His plans are
interrupted when the Day Care owner arrives and tells David that Jason (s6 ep3)
has gone missing.
Andrew tells Joanna to find
Liam and to also leave a message at the restaurant to alert David to the fact
they will be late. Joanna finds Liam mid darts tournament at the pub. She orders
him back to The Beeches in front of a rowdy crowd who are screaming for a piece
of her beside manner!
David finds Jason and tells
him he has to go back to the day centre. Jason doesnít want to and runs off
leaving David to follow him in the pouring rain. They argue as David phones the
day centre to tell them Jason is safe but stubbornly refusing to go back there.
DAVID: Nothing in life stays the same, no matter how much
we want it to
The Beeches crew are still
working trying to repair some of the damage. Dressed in full nurses attire due
to her soaking clothes, Dawn attempts to turn on a light switch but is pulled
away by Andrew who has her in a compromising clinch. He explains to her that the
water behind the electrics could have given her an electric shock.
Andrew and Joanna head to
the restaurant but are unable to reach David on his mobile. They leave Dawn,
Georgie and Liam at The Beeches to clear up the rest of the mess.
As David and Jason walk back
to David's car a motorbike heads in their pathway. David shouts at Jason to get
out of the way but the bike speeds towards David and knocks him flying over the
bike, landing him on a stone hedge. David is briefly unconscious but wakes up to
tell Jason to get get help by going to the car and pressing the horn.
At the restaurant Andrew and
Joanna are growing frustrated by David's non appearance. Andrew calls David's
mobile and is surprised when another voice answers. It is Jason, he tells Andrew
that David is on the floor after a motorbike hit him. Andrew tells Jason to take
the phone to David and cover him with a blanket. He tells Jason he must not let
David go to sleep. Andrew and Joanna listen attentively as Jason hands the
phone to David. David tells Andrew where they are. He says he received a knock
on the head and lost consciousness for a while, he tells him his vision is
blurred and his leg which is at 30 degrees, is giving him a lot of pain. He also
canít feel his foot.
As Andrew and Joanna rush to
the scene David loses consciousness again. Joanna alerts the emergency services
whilst Andrew uses his knowledge of Cardale to take a short cut to reach David.
When they arrive at the
scene Joanna checks the motorbike driver Ė he is dead. David regains
consciousness but Andrew and Joanna fear he may be bleeding into his brain. David
tells them both he is sorry for everything but Joanna tells him to hold the
apologies for later. Joanna realigns Davis leg and takes Jason back to the car
to wait for the ambulance.
David tells Andrew he is
leaving Claire to be with Patricia. He tells Andrew that when Patricia came back
it was like a light being switched back on, he tells him that everything he has
hoped for is in her. He says he has tried to do his best and not let anyone get
hurt but can no longer fight what he is feeling. He asks Andrew to promise him
that he will tell Patricia what he has just said. Andrew says David should wait
and think about it for a while but David is adamant that Andrew should promise
him, Andrew reluctantly promises him.
DAVID: When did you last lie back on a cloudless night and
just look at the stars
David stops breathing.
Andrew begins cpr and when Joanna sees what is happening she gets out of the car
and joins Andrew. Whilst Andrew continues cpr Joanna checks for David's vital
signs but finds none. Andrew begs David not to let go but Joanna already knows
it is over. She steps back and watches as Andrew eventually gives up and sits
back. David is dead.
