Tonight’s Casualty featured the heart-stopping sight of an ambulance hanging over a sheer drop, teetering above water. In the back of it was Faith (Kirsty Mitchell), who was injured when a lorry crashed into the ambulance and pushed it over the edge of a dock – and she realised that the injuries were life-threatening.
Faith and Dylan (William Beck) had gone to The Mythical St James’s (which turns out to be real after all) to transport a sick patient.
The paramedic who took them offered them a lift back to Holby, but first she was desperate for a specific kind of burger that she could only get from a stall at the dock side. The burger van was closed – and while the hungry and frustrated paramedic tried to turn the ambulance around, a lorry slammed into it.
Dylan had been riding in the front with the paramedic, mainly because he was uncomfortable with the sexual/romantic tension with Faith and wanted to keep a bit of distance between them. So when the ambulance went over, Faith was trapped in the back on her own, with Dylan realising that any move could send it plunging into the water below.
It was a tense situation, as an ever more desperate Dylan tried to get to Faith. The paramedic was dead, as was the lorry driver, the radios weren’t working and Faith couldn’t reach her phone. There was nobody around to raise the alarm.
Faith realised that she was badly injured, and as the moments wore on she felt she wouldn’t get out alive. ‘I need you to tell my kids I love them so much,’ she begged Dylan. At this moment, when it seemed like it might be their final moments, Dylan finally told Faith he loves her – and she said she loves him too.
Then the cavalry arrived in the form of Faith’s husband Lev (Uriel Emil), who’d tracked her phone. He rescued her in the nick of time, just as the ambulance finally dropped. But when it was Dylan she called out for, he realised what was going on between them and punched Dylan. Hard.
Things were a little bit quieter back at the ED. Fenisha (Olivia D’Lima) had been for a scan and proudly showed the picture to Ethan (George Rainsford). His face when he saw it spoke volumes, though the volumes he actually spoke aloud were about how he’s never wanted children.
Needing someone to talk to, Ethan finally confided in Rash (Neet Mohan), telling him how he really likes Fenisha, but that he’s worried that he might have passed the Huntington’s gene to the baby.
A patient explained to Ethan that she always trusted her own judgement in life, and this may have been what led him to tell Fenisha that he can’t (won’t) be the baby’s father.
New paramedic Leon (Bobby Lockwood) wasn’t having the best first shift, having to deal with a nasty stabbing incident and then hearing the news that a fellow paramedic had been killed in the dockside incident.
But Robyn (Amanda Henderson), Jade (Gabriella Leon) and Marty (Shaheen Jafargholi) were ready, willing and able to look after him, because that’s what your ED friends are for.
