The distraught doctor suffers an agonising day after a shocking assault
Last week (opens in new tab) viewers saw doctor Alicia Munroe leave the pub arm in arm with junior doctor Eddie McAllister. So why in this week’s Casualty is Alicia (played by Chelsea Halfpenny, who has spoken to us about the storyline) distraught and terrified later that night while Eddie sleeps peacefully beside her?
In a state of shock Alicia flees and later goes to work as normal, although clearly something terrible has happened. Desperate to avoid Eddie, Alicia volunteers to treat patients at a bus crash, but when she returns to the ED collapses as her rape trauma catches up with her. Doctor Ethan Hardy realises something’s wrong and steps in to treat her, but will Alicia open up about the night before?
Elsewhere, Ethan realises he has to break things off with new mum Leigh-Anne when she wants to make their relationship more public, jeopardising his job in the process! How will heartbroken Leigh-Anne react when Ethan dumps her?
Meanwhile, Jacob brings his son Blake to work with him so he can keep an eye on the teenager. With the ED in chaos while the medical team deals with the bus crash, paramedic Sam Nicholls suggests Blake studies at the ambulance station where it’s quieter. Will Jacob appreciate her offer?
