Paramedic Lev Malinovsky’s life comes crashing down in this week’s dramatic double-helping of Casualty.

Saturday’s first episode opens with Lev (Uriel Emil) happy for the first time in forever, as he spends time with new boyfriend Xander Hayes. It all goes horribly wrong, however, when the couple go for brunch and Lev reacts angrily to nasty homophonic jibes from fellow diner, Sam...

Later, Lev finds Sam (Harri Rees-Jones) beaten up and takes him to the ED for treatment. But he loses his temper again when secret drug addict Sam launches another torrent of disgusting insults. Lev, who’s spent a lifetime hiding his sexuality, sees red and violently attacks Sam! 

Horrified, Xander (Danny Szam) instantly dumps Lev. Then Sam presses charges! With brokenhearted Lev refusing to tell anyone why he punched a patient he’s arrested and taken in for questioning…

‘Lev has many conflicting elements,’ says Uriel, 46. ‘His inability to be honest is the key to understanding his inner conflict and fragile state of mind.’

In an emotional heart-to-heart, Xander reveals why he split up with Lev and explains exactly why the paramedic assaulted Sam. Realising that Lev needs people who love him on his side, Faith begs Xander to convince Lev to tell the truth about the incident with Sam.

Jacob Masters and Tina Mollett are the picture of happiness following their declarations of love last week. But worryingly the relationship takes a sinister turn in Saturday’s second episode of Casualty...

When Tina (Adele James) suggests they move in together, Jacob (Charles Venn) insists he’s happy with how things are, leaving his other half feeling hurt and rejected.

Throughout the ensuing shift Tina’s insecurity begins to manifest in an increasingly erratic manner. First she flirts with Matthew to make Jacob jealous. When that fails Tina begins to flounder in her nursing duties. She is resentful when Jade shines in Resus while she struggles, and afterwards is furious with Jacob for heaping praise on the young nurse.
