Things got off to a bad start on Melissa's first day when Sally mistook her for Donna, the owner of the sexy voice from control which had Hi Ho enchanted. Her first shout took them to a male stripper whose Viking-eque hat had started a fire, and she gave him a lecture about fire safety.
Rob 'Hyper' Sharpe was particularly put out by Melissa's arrival and was suspicious of her, particularly when he found out her notes on all the watch members. He suspected Pearce had put up her up to it but it turned out to be DO Griggs. However, when Hyper threatened to inform ADO Coleman, Griggs told her it had only been an informal request and she realised he had just used her to get at Blue Watch. She told him they were a "damn fine watch" and in an attempt to atone for her actions, handed over the file to Hyper.
Melissa became friendly with Sally and testified in her favour after Sally was raped by Sean Bateman, which earned her the wrath of Bateman's colleagues Ducky and Pitbull. Soon after, Coleman informed her that her promotion had come through and she was to be transferred to nearby Shadbrook. Melissa was disappointed when everyone excused themselves from going for a farewell drink with her, although in reality they had planned a surprise party, which Pitbull almost ruined by telling her about it beforehand.
