Full Holby City spoilers below…

Nicky McKendrick's worst nightmare!

Cameron Dunn may be dead, but his killer legacy lives on for former girlfriend Nicky McKendrick. Not only is she struggling to bond with baby Juliet, who was fathered by Cameron, this week Nicky comes face-to-face a patient whose dad was murdered by her evil ex!

Nicky (Belinda Owusu) is shaken when Patricia Cole (Kimberley Okoye) is admitted to the hospital and assigned as her patient. Meanwhile, Patricia is equally horrified that Nicky still works at Holby, which she calls the ‘murder capital of the county!’ 

Distraught, Patricia has some harsh words to say about Nicky. She refuses to be treated and begs to be transferred to another hospital. But the decision is taken out of Patricia's hands when her condition deteriorates rapidly…

With Patricia needing emergency heart surgery, Eli Ebrahimi (Davood Ghadami) offers to step in. Jac Naylor (Rosie Marcel), however, insists that Nicky operates. 

Will Nicky save Patricia? And what’s Jac playing at?

Also in 'Holby City' this week…

Donna (Jaye Jacobs) struggles with her neverending workload and is pushed to breaking point when hospital porter Jason (Jules Robertson) is admitted after a car accident. 

A call from Dylan Keogh in the ED sees Jason transferred to Donna’s care, which results in Donna being volunteered to ease the injured hospital porter’s distress. But after a day of going above and beyond the call of duty, exhausted Donna feels taken advantage of and undermined by the doctors.

Elsewhere, Fletch (Alex Walkinshaw) attends the funeral of a former patient, and Jac’s condition worsens making it harder to conceal her secret, so she piles the pressure on Eli to operate on her. Eli, however, is more concerned about his wife’s recovery as Nicky turns to Amelia (Lucy Briggs-Owen) for more permanent help with baby Juliet.

Meanwhile, Max McGerry (Jo Martin) meddles in Ange Godard (Dawn Steele) and Josh Hudson’s (Trieve Blackwood-Cambridge) wedding plans!
