Doctor Archie Hudson is shaken to her core when former patient Vincent Millbank is admitted to the ED.

Archie (Genesis Lynea) believed she was off the hook for vandalising Vincent’s car after consultant Will Noble charmed a security guard into destroying CCTV evidence of Archie pouring acid over the retired teacher’s classic Jaguar. Viewers already know that Archie’s actions were a result of learning Vincent (Tim Woodward) remorselessly bullied his former pupils, driving one to suicide.

This week Archie discovers her act of vengeance has left Vincent a terrified wreck. Feeling guilty Archie decide to confess and resign…

Doctor Rash Masum's intentions to focus solely on his own career get derailed fairly quickly this week. Rash takes matters into his own hands when he discovers junior doctor Mason Reede is covering up a catalogue of mistakes – one which caused the death of an elderly patient.

Horrified Rash decides to report Mason to consultant Ethan Hardy, although pinning the senior medic down turns out to be tricky (see below).

Ironically, after Rash’s career being jeopardised by the junior doctor’s lies, Rash now holds Mason’s future in his hands…

Could this be an opportunity for revenge?

Ethan keeps digging

Meanwhile, smitten Ethan is busy covering up his own lies about Effie’s cystic fibrosis trial!

When Effie’s dad Theo turns up demanding answers, Ethan’s trapped in a new ethical dilemma – one that could ruin his medical reputation…

Theo threatens to expose Ethan (Oh err missus) unless he finds out which trial group Effie’s been placed in. Yes, it’s another fine mess Ethan’s gotten himself in to!

Vincent’s grandson Joshua is also admitted to the ED after a DIY attempt at beefing up home security goes disastrously wrong.

Jade struggles with being in close proximity to Vincent after his previous behaviour. Jan, however, has no problem putting him in his place!

Elsewhere, Ethan receives a series of warnings, including one from pal Will Noble… Will he pay heed?

This week’s guest stars include Frayed star Frazer Hadfield in his TV debut as Vincent’s grandson Joshua; Sudha Bhuchar (Stella, EastEnders) and Tripti Tripuraneni (Temple) as mother and daughter Rupal and Leena in an intriguing story; and Rachel Lin (Pose) as Doctor Juliet Chen, who has stern words for Ethan!
