Storyline

Cathy dumps her aggressive boyfriend Bill whilst Gina puts her career above Frank's marriage proposal. Meanwhile the police are in the firing line of the press following the murder so Gina agrees to be bait despite Burns' protests and walk through the park where the women were attacked. She has an encounter with an angry Bill,who is arrested but then the real culprit strikes and Gina survives through her strong will and ability to talk to him. His arrest also ties in with the question of what happened to the missing Stanley and back at the police station all the staff,even Fenton, commend her as Coulson announces that she is to be put forward for a bravery medal. Burns however receives sad news from the psychiatric hospital. Written by don @ minifie-1

Goofs

Near the episode end, Deborah Burns has overdosed on pills she saved from medications administered to her while hospitalized. When her lifeless body is discovered, medical staff try to revive her using manual chest compression. That technique was not widely known until the sixties, a time after the setting of WPC 56. It was first described in the article 'Closed-chest cardiac massage,' JAMA. 1960;173:94-97 and came into common use some time later. See more »
