Episode 42: Casualty

Summary

Bea tries to give Alicia the help she needs following the attack, while Eddie tries to rebuild their relationship - only to be told they are purely professional colleagues. Jacob lies to Sam and tells her that Blake knows about their relationship. Elsewhere, after overhearing Sam express her doubts that she will last another shift, Ruby attempts to build bridges with her colleagues and patients. A father and son are brought in with injuries they refuse to explain, raising suspicions of abuse - but it is not clear who is the abuser and who the victim.

Review

Alicia is haunted by her rapist, Dr Eddie McAllister. He intrudes on her dreams and is smarming his way around the emergency department during working hours, insisting that he and Alicia must attempt to be professional and get along.

Ah, if only it were that easy. Alicia is in torment (and Chelsea Halfpenny is so good as a woman who’s caught between her pride and an overwhelming need to unburden herself). Her best mate Bea is a good support, but it’s up to Alicia to take the big steps towards coming to terms with her assault. “This is never going to go away, is it?” she sobs.

Meanwhile, out on the road, over-earnest new paramedic Ruby is offering around her godawful kale crisps and learning how to be a functioning human being rather than a rule-spouting automaton. Luckily a golden chance to interfere in a patient’s personal life presents itself.
