Storyline

The trial of Ricky Hanson starts, and the members of UCOS are scheduled to appear as witnesses. Hanson is the man who killed Jack Halford's wife, but he's on trial for attempting to murder Jack, who was recovering from a car accident over a year ago. Hanson's barrister is clearly out to discredit each of them individually. While at the courthouse, they are asked by an acquaintance of Jack's, Sam Tallis, to look into the death of Ralph Wheeler, who was killed and left his fortune to a tart named Carrie Soper. As they look into the case, they find several possible suspects, including a solicitor, a doctor, and someone with a lengthy criminal record. In the end, the case revolves around a car accident and organ donation. Written by garykmcd

Ralph Wheeler a millionaire daughter was in a car accident. She remained comatose and her father wanted to moved her but the doctor persuaded the father to turn off her life support and donate her organs. Four organs were removed from the daughter Amy/Naomi (not sure about the name) her heart, kidney, liver and cornea. Wheeler finds out who has his daughter's cornea because of his financial influence he tracks down the person named "Carrie". They became close in a short time. It is said because he wants to keep a part of his daughter alive. Wheeler leaves his money to Carrie who is a female prostitute. Soon after that he is murdered.

Wheeler did not know that the doctor in charge of his daughter's care called a friend who was a lawyer and told him that he had a "perfect heart" for a person the lawyer knew before Wheeler's daughter died. The daughter's boyfriend overheard the call and had Ralph Wheeler donate the organs to a register organization where people are already signed up for what they need so the doctor could not get the heart for his lawyer friend.

UCOS is investigating the murder of Ralph Wheeler. When people have something others want and not just money they will do anything to get it.

In a statement about a heart taken from a person not dead and taken for another person Blake the man who wanted the heart for his girlfriend says "people are not the same one life is not equal to another,life is inherently unfair." I don't agree that that statement. I am pro-life and all lives are equal to each other.

This episode has a lot in it including UCOS going to court and testifying on behalf of Jack.

Sad ending in many aspects.
