The romance between ambo officer Sam Aleni and TP was a classic story of cross-cultural forbidden love.
Despite both their families disapproval, they were married but their happiness only lasted a few short months.
On the way back from Gina and Leonard's farewell party, a fight broke out between Chris and Steve - and Steve lost control of the car he was driving. It crashed, throwing Chris from the car.
Sam arrived at the scene and tended Chris, while Steve worked to free TP who was trapped in the car. As a horrified Sam and Kirsty (the other passenger) looked on, the car exploded, killing Steve and TP.
