  • From early July, a serial killer dubbed "The Ferndale Strangler", had the women of Shortland Street Hospital living in fear when several were found strangled with surgical procedures carried out on their bodies. The victims: receptionist Claire Solomon found in a rubbish skip outside the hospital; nurse Meg Harris found in a skip outside The I.V.; bar owner Jay Copeland found in bushes near the hospital; nurse Beth Wilson was abducted from her home and found a week later by river; and nurse Brenda Holloway was given a lethal injection on Halloween night by someone in a Halloween mask after discovering crucial evidence regarding mysterious cardiac arrests.

Gavin Capper and Justin Salt were arrested on an unrelated case. The police assumed Gavin was the Ferndale Strangler, however the last episode for 2007 revealed that the Ferndale Strangler was in fact, nurse Joey Henderson when he pulled IV tubing from his pocket and was seen about strangle nurse Tania Jeffries having learnt she was in a relationship with doctor Kip Denton.

2008Edit

Main article: Storylines (2008)

Highlights

  • With the identity of the Ferndale Strangler revealed, viewers saw Joey Henderson fail in his attempt to strangle Tania Jeffries. Joey then set his sights on nurse Shanti Kumari after finding out that she is betrothed to Dinesh Jivani, while also dating James "Scotty" Scott. Joey later turned his frustration onto Alice Piper who he kidnapped and kept in a storage unit where he gave her an appendectomy. Alice managed to escape her 'prison' when she stabbed Joey's leg, piercing his femoral artery which began bleeding profusely. Craig and Kieran arrived at the lock-up. Craig found a bleeding Joey who pretended to die. As Craig turned away, Joey limped off, only to be pursued and caught by Kieran on the roof. Rather than surrendering to the police, Joey committed suicide by jumping off the building.
  • The aftermath of the high-speed car crash saw Toni, Harry and Tuesday Warner admitted to Shortland Street Hospital and Guy Warner taken to Central. Tuesday and Harry have minor injuries, Toni lost one of her kidneys and later returned to work. Guy was seriously ill and placed in an induced coma for a time. Eventually Guy started drug rehabilitation at Shortland Street hospital, under the care of Scotty, and for a time refused to enter a rehabilition centre paid for by his brother. Guy later caused a sensation by publishing a book about the Warners and Chris' relationship with various women, alluding to him offering promotion for sex which was incorrect. Guy left for the States and Tuesday followed soon after.
  • Teenage cousins, Wiremu Potae and Tane Samuels returned to Ferndale as Shortland Street tackled the issue of teenage driving. This storyline's dramatic climax occurred when the boys, along with Sophie McKay and Tuesday Warner, become involved in street-racing with illegally modified cars. Wiremu had been warned by another of the boy racers that his car wasn't safe but ignored that advice and proceeded to race, following an incident involving Sophie and one of the other boys. Wiremu, with Sophie, lost control of his car at high-speed when it hit a pot-hole. He hit Tane, leaving him in a crumpled heap on the road. Justine Jones performed surgery on Tane and later told him he may not walk again. TK Samuels and Sarah Potts learnt from the police that car was unwarranted and had been illegally altered. Wiremu was charged with operating a dangerous vehicle. Both Tuesday and Sophie have nightmares of the accident. Tuesday admitted that she relives the car crash that involved her father. The two boys fell out and Wiremu drank a full bottle of whisky which left him in a coma and close to death. Wiremu recovered; Tane spoke to a paralysis counsellor about life in a wheelchair and plans to become a nurse.
  • Original series regular, Dr. Hone Ropata (Temuera Morrison) returns in Episode 4000 for a six week guest-stint.
  • Norovirus was identified on an incoming patient and Toni Warner unwittingly became exposed to the disease but thought it was a stomach bug which Harry had a few days earlier. On June 12, 2008 June, Sarah Potts found Toni asleep and woke her, then realised she was severely dehydrated, and rushes her to the E.D. Toni's close call stirred Chris' protective instincts and when her test results returned, it became apparent that her surviving kidney was irreparably damaged. Toni was floored at the news that she would need dialysis for the rest of her life. Chris vowed to do everything he could to care for her, and insisted that she moved back home. A reluctant but grateful Toni accepted, and Harry was delighted that Mummy was finally returning home. However, due to an unexpected reaction to the dialysis, Toni's blood pressure dropped and Harry watched on in horror as Sarah, TK, Alice and Scotty fought to save Toni's life. Chris arrived too late, it's out on his dreadful shock he struggled to realise that Toni had died. A post mortem determined Toni died from cardiac arrest. A few days later Toni was farewelled at an emotional funeral. With Chris on bereavement leave, Callum was acting CEO, a role Riley wants him assume full-time.
  • Problems with drugs supplied by Scott Spear were found to have been severely diluted and some patients had died as a result. Among them was Toni Warner. Doctors Craig Valentine and Justine Jones began to investigate the source. Anthony Richards, a former Scott-Spear drug company employee who was in hiding, fearing retaliation, alerted Craig and Justine to a journal containing drug cover-ups. When Craig eventually got his hands on the ledger, he was pursued by whitetail thugs who forced his SUV off the road and then chased him around a wooded area. Craig's heart problems resurfaced, which led to him being captured, beaten to death, then torched in his SUV. Justine Jones then became a target when Don Lennox and the whitetails were hired by Scott Spear to kill her. After Justine discovered a bomb in her car, she used it to fake her death and escape with a new identity to Australia where she is under witness protection.
  • Ferndale residents continue to be admitted to emergency department following attacks by the Whitetails gang. A gang member fired shots into the operating theatre where Chris Warner, Morgan Braithwaite, Ethan Pierce and Tania Jefferies were attending to a Whitetail stabbing victim. The shooter had evaded security and receptionist Gerald Tippett, wounded Ethan, and Nurse Morgan was knocked unconscious. The shooter later revealed to Chris that he was the target to put him off making further inquiries about Scott Spear.
  • Callum McKay wrongly accused TK Samuels of causing Brooke Freeman to resign her Shortland Street position, unaware that revelations by a would-be patient and media revealed Brooke's true identity as Brooke Marsden. Chris Warner persuaded her to stay with him until things settled down, unaware that she was the cause of problems between him and Harry. Brooke suggested Harry see a psychologist who suggested he be sent to a camp for disturbed children, which Brooke thought was a great idea, but Chris refused, leading to Brooke moving out.
  • Sarah Potts finally accepted that she has multiple sclerosis and resigned as Head of E.D., much to the astonishment of her husband TK. Her pregnancy also played a factor in her decision to resign. Soon after she was appointed acting Chief Executive Officer when Callum McKay was stood down pending an investigation over his shares in Nessus Bio, a company that Ethan Pierce has encouraged him to invest in.
  • Kieran Mitchell unwittingly discovered that the new head of surgery, Ethan Pierce was involved with funeral home operator Sterling Haldane in a body harvesting operation. Tissue from one of the bodies was used in several patients that included Timothy Carson, a 10-year old with muscular dystrophy, who had come in for a spine operation a few months earlier, and hospital receptionist Yvonne Jeffries. It was subsequently discovered that Timothy had contracted HIV through an infected DBM, which shocked Ethan. He then confronted Haldane, and was furious to discover death certificates had been falsified. He also discovered that the DBM that infected Timothy came from a transient sex worker – not a heart attack victim as stated on Haldane's paperwork. Yvonne Jeffries was found to have cancer resulting from a graft of bone material supplied by Ethan's company Nessus Bio, something that CEO, Callum McKay was unaware of as Ethan had persuaded him to buy shares. An elderly woman abandoned at the hospital by her family was befriended by Ethan, who then had Kieran drive her to the funeral home on the pretence that she was to view to husband's body. She was killed by Ethan for her body parts. Ethan was in midst of surgery when he abruptly walk and meet up with Callum and rather than face the consequences Ethan knocked Callum to the ground and fled, pursued by Brooke who had earlier revealed to Alice what Ethan was really like. Many of those who had encounters with Ethan Pierce wanted him dead. Ethan was scared that Haldane would tell the police so he killed him. Kieran had hired Don to go after Ethan with a high-powered rifle but the gun that ended Pierce's life was a pistol which sent three bullets into his body. In 2009, the unknown assassin was then revealed to be Maia Jeffries who was under a mental breakdown before she killed him for all the hurt and grief he caused for those she loved.
