Casualty's Connie and Sam finally give into their mutual attraction – but what does it mean for the future?

Tensions simmer between clinical lead Connie Beauchamp and former medical director Sam Strachan this week. Now Sam’s a junior ED doctor, Connie (Amanda Mealing) delights in lording it over him.

When Sam (Tom Chambers) oversteps the mark with a patient, a fiery argument in a store cupboard takes a steamy turn! Will this passionate clinch fan old flames? And what will their daughter, Grace, think if she finds out? Something tells us they haven’t thought this through…

Elsewhere, Ethan turns to blackmail in an attempt to nail Cal’s killer, Scott Ellisson… When he spots paramedic Jez Andrews (Lloyd Everitt) kissing Scott’s brother Mickey, Ethan comes up with a cunning plan to rope Jez and Mickey into helping him get Scott sent to prison.

Meanwhile, Alicia confesses she’s been lying to Ethan. Will he forgive her?

Also this week, Dylan offers to help David in matters of the heart. And Louise has trouble roping in volunteers for Cal’s charity event.
