After Tierney has burnt a warder alive and poured turpentine on Kate as the next victim Red sends in the riot police to open the fire. The injured are taken to a nearby hospital and put in the care of sympathetic young doctor Philip Ryder and abrasive, aloof surgeon Mr Henderson.

At the same time Susan discovers that red has been having an affair with his therapist Jaine Ellis. Written by don @ minifie-1 See less
