Bluestone 42 Full Episode Guide

  • It's the last day on base before the drawdown, and Mac and Rocket are determined to steal as many 'souvenirs' as possible, whilst Towerblock's efforts to help mend Bird's broken family ties result in his wife jumping to an alarming conclusion.

  • Ellen's rigid rule-following is bad news for Faruq; if the reference she wrote him isn't a bit less truthful, his UK visa won't be fast-tracked, and he's unlikely to survive Taliban reprisals after the drawdown.

  • Ellen and Bird become room-mates and find themselves at loggerheads over what Bird sees as Ellen's 'girly' accoutrements. Towerblock is appalled to discover his wife has been spending all their money on posh food.

  • There is a new arrival on base - Captain Ellen Best. Her presence affects Bluestone 42 in very different ways: in Bird's case, immediate hostility; in Simon's case, utter infatuation.

  • We rejoin Bluestone 42 after an IED explosion has hit their mastiff, and they find themselves trapped in hostile territory. The team faces a dilemma: do they wait it out, or risk an ambush to get back to safety?

  • Graham, the new robot, is brazenly stolen from under the noses of Bluestone 42, which proves useful in Nick's hunt for the Taliban bomber. Bird finds herself the reluctant participant in a 'girlie chat' as Mary battles with her feelings for Nick.

  • Nick is stuck looking after a Government Minister who is visiting the base, but offloads the duty onto Mary. He soon regrets it when she unexpectedly takes a shine to him. Simon takes it upon himself to become an overzealous Fire Officer for the base.

  • Nick needs some peace and quiet so he can focus on building a forensic profile of the Taliban bomber. Mac is distraught when he finds out his Dad is dating his high school crush. Meanwhile Towerblock hatches a plan to scare Bird with Rocket's new pet rat.

  • An unwelcome blast from the past knocks Nick off his game, and has a dangerous effect on the rest of the team. Mary' movie night and Bird' Boogie Night clash, and the pair find themselves locked in a popularity battle.
