Rita’s (Chloe Homan) back, albeit temporarily, Robyn (Amanda Henderson) is burying her feelings following last week’s bombshell, and the road back to relationship-ville is not a simple one for Connie (Amanda Mealing) and Jacob (Charles Venn). Meanwhile Dylan (Will Beck) is getting in touch with his paternal side!
This week’s episode of Casualty was packed with realisation for some of our favourite characters and there’s a superb guest appearance from actress, Julie Peasgood. The storyline for Ms Peasgood’s character kicks off with an impalement of her new lover and ex husband. Awkward! It’s down to Elle (Jaye Griffiths) and her team to try and save both men, however, regardless of the seriousness of the situation, revelations are made that make the overall outcome of the accident a fait accompli. Louise (Azuka Oforka) has a meltdown, which we don’t really get to the bottom of, which forces her into a frank exchange with Rita regarding the mess with Iain.
Meanwhile, Robyn (Amanda Henderson) is far from embroiled in the turmoil of last week’s episode, she assists Lily (Crystal Yu) in getting to the bottom of a nine year old girl’s mystery condition. Crystal’s abilities are put to the test and the able Junior Doctor wins through, not without a decent amount of meddling from Robyn, though!
Connie and Jacob are planning to have dinner, but once again, Grace (Emily Carey) has take priority and Connie doesn’t let her daughter down. Much to Jacob’s dismay, though. We also have yet another glimpse into the relationship which exists between Jacob and Elle. The mere fact that they refer to each other as ‘pudding’ and ‘pancake’ indicates that their past runs much deeper.
Then there’s Dylan, he’s literally left holding the baby as he struggles (initially) to settle his baby half-sister with not much help from Max (Jamie Davis). A different side is shown to Dr Keogh’s character yet again and for that, I thank the writers! More of that, please!
Sorry to see Rita go off on her travels, but let’s hope she comes back and she’s back to her old self. Poor Charlie (Derek Thompson) is having to find an agency nurse, I wonder who that might be….?
