Casualty spoilers: Alicia and Ethan are falling for each other – but will that change when they mix their drinks?

There’s drunk in love and then there’s just plain drunk. And Alicia confuses the two when she goes on a date with doctor Ethan Hardy this week!

There’s been a spark between Ethan and Alicia since they got trapped together during the hospital helicopter crash some weeks back. But since then, Alicia’s blown hot and cold having discovered her father cheated on her mother throughout their marriage, and claims she’s turned her back on love.

But when acting clinical lead Elle sends Ethan and Alicia on a shout out to rescue a jogger injured in a sinkhole the mismatched pair can’t deny their chemistry!

After Alicia is injured by falling debris and suffers a panic attack, Ethan is on hand to help and calm her until they’re winched out. Later, as a thank you, the smitten junior doctor asks Ethan out for a drink. And, with a bit of a nudge from Lily in the role of matchmaker, Ethan eventually agrees!

After a few tequilas Alicia invites Ethan back to hers – where she opens a bottle of red wine and follows that up with some whiskey! This can’t end well, can it?

Also this week, Louise is turned down for funding to do up the relatives room. Connie is discharged from hospital but struggles to let Jacob back into her life. And Charlie weighs up the pros and cons of going to a school reunion…
