Is Ethan Hardy dead in this week's Casualty double bill!?

There’s twice as much Casualty this week! First up is ‘Blinded’ (BBC1, 8.45pm, Saturday 06 November 2021) followed immediately by ‘Two Minutes’ (BBC1, 9.25pm 06 November 2021 - See our TV Guide for listings). 

Stevie Nash’s revenge plan steps up a gear in the first episode, only to be (temporarily) side-tracked by warm feelings towards Ethan Hardy. But by Saturday’s second episode the Casualty consultant is armed, dangerous and ready to kill Ethan!

Full spoilers are below.

Ethan Hardy dead when Stevie Nash ‘Blinded’ by rage?

Stevie Nash has only one thing on her mind in the first Casualty outing - take down Ethan Hardy no matter what! Stevie blames Ethan for ruining her sister’s Emma’s life, as she was tragically left in a vegetative state after being treated by an inexperienced Ethan in 2016. 

In ‘Blinded’ Stevie (Elinor Lawless) leaves poorly Emma with her carer, so she can go to work and dig up dirt on Ethan (George Rainsford).

Ethan Hardy Mission: Just Be Nice!

Meanwhile, Ethan, who senses Stevie’s intense dislike for him but has no idea why, is on an alternative mission… he’s determined to befriend the prickly consultant and tell her about his Huntington’s diagnosis. 

When Ethan invites Stevie to work in Resus with him, she jumps at the chance, convinced it will give her an opportunity to prove his incompetence. But as the shift progresses, Stevie becomes reluctantly impressed by his skills as a doctor! In fact, it’s Stevie who makes a major medical mistake, which may prove fatal for a young man in her care. 

Mission accomplished?

Utterly distraught at her error, Stevie breaks down only for kindly Ethan to step in. Surprised by his reassurance, wisdom and compassion Stevie begins to see him in a new light, and agrees to go for a coffee later.

Traumatised Jacob Masters (Charles Venn) makes a career-changing decision after an unpredictable patient lashes out.

Jacob’s colleagues rally round him when he returns to work, but shrugs off their concern, insisting the situation with Tina was just a bad break up. 

To say they’re concerned is an understatement, so David Hide (Jason Durr) reaches out in a bid to help Jacob realise he’s a victim of abuse.

An incident with Luke (Alex Austin), a paranoid and unpredictable patient, helps Jacob accept that he needs to be honest with himself. He opens up to David before making a major career decision…

Meanwhile, Rash Masum (Neet Mohan) urges Ethan to reconsider opening up to Stevie about his Huntington’s diagnosis. Rash has problems of his own too - he’s approached by a teenager belonging to Hafsa Kazimi’s gang at the ED. Is Hafsa (Zainab Hasan) having him watched? 

Robyn Miller (Amanda Henderson) is shocked when Paul turns up for a shift at the ED. He wants to rekindle their friendship/budding romance, but she doesn’t want him in her life after he catfished Charlie Fairhead.

Will she reconsider if Paul (Paul Popplewell) can convince Charlie (Derek Thompson) to forgive him? 

Elsewhere, Faith Cadogan (Kirsty Mitchell) asks Jacob to take over a difficult patient, while Dylan Keogh (William Beck) takes to the role of clinical lead like Connie Beauchamp takes to a new pair of high heels!
