Bea’s admittance to the ED shocks her Holby colleagues. Is there more trauma to come for the young doctor?
It’s not Casualty’s usual style but this week they pick up directly after the previous episode's shocking closing scenes (opens in new tab). Drunken junior doctor Bea Kinsella regains consciousness in an alleyway and is in dire need of rescue. Fortunately a club bouncer, Johnny, spots her and calls for an ambulance. Paramedics Iain and Sam are shocked when they realise who needs their help and why, while injured Bea is utterly ashamed…
Suffering from a head and ankle injury Bea’s humiliation reaches new depths when she’s brought to Holby ED and treated by her colleagues, including confident new ED junior doctor Eddie McAllister, who she’s in direct competition with for a prestigious placement. And there’s more to come…
Ethan, far from being remorseful about his criticism at Bea’s failure to thoroughly treat vulnerable patient, Sean, last week (opens in new tab), refuses to give her preferential treatment. Meanwhile, Sean’s condition is serious. Holby City’s Xavier Duval (opens in new tab) (Marcus Griffiths) isn’t sure he’ll survive surgery and is deeply critical of both Bea and Ethan!
Elsewhere, Leigh-Anne Carr is overwhelmed by baby Kiegan’s medical needs and begins to rely heavily on Ethan, who continues to abandon the ED to reassure her.
This week grieving nurse Robyn Miller returns to work, although Ethan, who seems to have developed a knack for saying the wrong thing at the wrong time, questions whether she’s ready or not. Though he may be right in this instance… Robyn’s floored when she receives a gift from beyond the grave when Dylan gives her a present from dead husband Glen.
Also this week, Ethan’s harshness with Robyn ends up causing a big stink for the struggling acting clinical lead. Both Louise and Charlie criticise Ethan for his hard-hearted treatment of Bea. And two key characters consider quitting!
