When a heart transplant patient dies, Frankie fears the surgeons will close ranks to cover up a medical error. Lou realises she and best friend Frankie may be on different sides.

Under Eli's tutelage Tabb struggles to prove his ability as a doctor when the two are pulled into an emergency code on heart transplant patient, Zoe.

Having taken a close interest in Zoe, Frankie is stunned when she doesn't survive. A meeting is called to establish whether there was a preventable error, but Mitri and the others involved in the operation close ranks, pressuring Lou to keep her mouth shut.

After Frankie helps Berger deliver a renal patient's baby, he asks her not to reveal he has a brain tumour; they are now the keepers of each other's secrets.

But this isn't the only secret Frankie is being asked to keep: Lou admits she saw Mitri miss a stitch and was forced to ignore it. Was it his arrogance that killed Zoe? And what will Frankie do with this new revelation?
