The episode following Cal’s death was always going to be a harrowing one to watch, it was distressing to see Ethan returning to work and also watching the rest of the team coping with the fall-out. Brilliantly performed and filmed, though – here are a few highlights:
Charlie ~ You can always rely on Charlie to be the shoulder to cry on with an open office door, plus reliable Charlie is first to greet the bereaved brother upon his arrival at the ED.
Ethan ~ Ethan has been ignoring the fact that he has a voicemail from Cal, he can’t bring himself to hear the voice of his recently departed brother. It takes Alicia and Charlie gently prompting to encourage him to hear the message, and the realisation that it was Ethan who should have been on the receiving end is unsettling in the extreme.
Dylan ~ Dylan is also out of sorts, he struggles to deal courteously with a patient who has not helped himself when it comes risking his health. I suspect that Dr Keogh will take as much time as the rest to get over losing a colleague.
Jez ~ I expect that the paramedic who can’t keep it in his trousers will not be in favour when his current liaison is discovered. The Ellison family is public enemy number one and Jez is playing a dangerous game with his latest squeeze.
Connie – The on-going saga between Grace and Connie still doesn’t appear to be resolved, but being called mum by Hugo is an interesting turn of events and one that she is keen to brush off as a slip yet appeared touched by. From the sublime to the ridiculous, she’s also fiercely taking Sam to task over the fact that she has to apply for her own job.
