Newly arrived in the practice, Dr. Jennifer Napier, now using her own name, treats Annie Kirk who is suffering from a heart condition. She tries to arrange for the woman to see a specialist in Edinburgh, but the woman is reluctant to so. She later bemoans the fact that Annie's son never visits leading Doctor Finlay to ask his mother to come and visit him. He regrets it all somewhat when she regales everyone with photos and tales, some embarrassing, from his youth. Jennifer also feels that they aren't, as general practitioners, dealing with their patients psychological well-being. Finlay strongly disagrees leading her wonder if she'll be happy in a country practice.
