Monday 15th March (ep 4441)

A shaken Hunter makes his way to the ED and lets TK and Tracey know that the ambulance has been robbed. 

Tracey scathingly tells Hunter that she warned him not to hand out needles.  She doesn't realise that Hunter has just been stuck with an addict's needle.

Callum charges into ED, determined to help.  Hunter will be put on anti-viral medication.

Hunter claims not to be worried and surprises Callum by continuing on as though nothing has happened. 

Tracey continues to feel conflicted about whether to continue pursuing a relationship with Hunter. 

Scotty warns her to be careful - pity and worry are not good reasons to get back together. 

Later, Hunter attends a call-out with Ben and is shocked to come face to face with Astrid, the addict responsible.

Hunter has to restrain himself from taking out his frustration on Astrid.

Sarah and Daniel move into Maxwell's apartment.

Sarah assures Daniel she'll be staying in her own room, but after Daniel has gone to bed Maxwell turns on the charm.

The next morning Daniel wrongly suspects Sarah slept with Maxwell but Sarah defends. 

After a sobering chat with Loren, Daniel proves his maturity by telling Sarah to go for it with Maxwell - it's none of his business.

Isaac is disappointed when Tracey makes it clear she isn't interested, and he shifts his focus on to Frankie, an attractive bureau nurse.

Chris teases Isaac about his roving eye only to have Isaac remind him of his own playboy reputation. 

The next day, Tania meets Isaac and can't help being impressed by his professionalism.

Tuesday 16th March (ep 4442)

Hunter grits his teeth and treats the junkie Astrid, and when he continues to be patient with her despite a tirade of abuse, Tracey feels for him. 

When it's discovered that Astrid is pregnant, Tracey resolves to call the social worker.

Astrid convinces Tracey that she wants to turn her life around for the sake of the baby. 

Tracey delays calling the social worker.  Astrid, desperate for a fix, steals a leftover syringe and injects herself with its contents. 

It turns out to be a cardiac drug and Astrid has to be rushed off to the cardiac unit. 

Tracey admits she was wrong about Astrid and Hunter hopes that he and Tracey may have drawn closer.

When Hunter suggests a weekend away when he gets the all clear from his HIV treatment, Tracey dashes his hopes, insisting that she just wants to be friends.

Isaac completes the surgery successfully and Tania is impressed with this new hot shot surgeon. 

Callum voices his disapproval to Isaac.  Isaac is sure that Chris will support his decision to finish the operation. 

But Chris isn't happy and condemns him to mundane surgeries until he has learned some humility. 

Isaac vents his frustrations to Tania, and in explaining his passion to achieve the best he can in surgery, wins Tania over. 

Daniel decides that auditioning for The Importance of Being Earnest will get him closer to Loren.

Daniel and Loren have fun running his lines, and Daniel quietly hopes he can seduce Loren into bed with his acting.

He and Tania hit it off until Maia tells Tania that Isaac already tried it on with both Tracey and Libby.  

Tania put the brakes on.  The next day, Isaac tries again and Tania tells him she knows he tried to woo her sister. 

Chris is amused by Isaac's poor strike rate with the local women.  Isaac asks Tania out for a drink. 

He ups the offer to dinner at an expensive restaurant.  The booking falls through and Tania and Isaac end up at The IV where Frankie latches on to Isaac.
