Casualty spoilers: Depressed paramedic Iain Dean makes unsettling, secret plans. Ruby is upset after treating a young girl. And Dylan makes a discovery that brightens his day!
For months paramedic Iain Dean has been bottling up symptoms of post-traumatic stress, depression and suicidal thoughts in Casualty. And this week Iain’s behaviour takes a worrying turn as he bags and boxes up all his belongings. Most ominously of all, Iain leaves a notepad, pen and glass of water on his coffee table before heading to work…
At the ambulance station Iain seems back to his old self, even joking around with his ultra healthy paramedic partner Ruby Sparks about pork scratchings and kebabs.
From the minute they clock on, however, Iain and Ruby (Maddy Hill) deal with an onslaught of cases, from a lady attacked by drunken louts to a collapsed ceiling at a nightclub.
Throughout it all, Iain’s a tower of strength for Ruby… Does Iain’s changed demeanour mean he’s turned a corner? Perhaps his painful encounter with his mother last week has prompted him to pack up and start afresh elsewhere... Or has he made a more troubling decision?
Will Ruby fight her corner?
Ruby and Iain deal with everything paramedic life can throw at them this week, and Ruby is deeply affected by young patient Emma, fighting for her life after being hit by a car.
Upset by this especially challenging shift, will timid Ruby stand up for her profession when threatened by an aggressive member of the public?
Marty opens up
Dylan is unimpressed when Marty takes an unprofessional interest in a patient’s love life this week. While treating Amy after she is hit with a glass bottle, Marty shares something personal in order to help her make a decision about the future. Amy’s grateful, but has Marty overstepped the mark?
Also this week
Ruby adjusts to life in a house share with nurses Marty and Jade.
Gem and Rash are delightfully loved up.
Jade is charmed by cheeky patient, Luke.
And Dylan gets excited by the medicinal properties of maggots!
