Oh my word this episode had it all! Passion, trauma, drama, hurt – all in just a solitary instalment! I’m still catching my breath… here are a few highlights:
Doctor Love ~ Dylan’s looking at internet dating due to David’s unsubtly mentioning the subject! Checking out a very expensive dating website puts Dylan right off, but David has found another route to try looking for love… this storyline could run and get even more amusing! I find it even funnier when it involves Dylan.
Chuffy ~ For all the Chuffy fans out there (Charlie and Duffy, in case you’re unfamiliar with ‘shipping’) that was a lovely little moment they shared while watching the wedding of one of their patients, wasn’t it? Bless them, a very natural pairing who should have got together years ago, in my humble opinion…
Super-Sam ~ Super-Sam steps in and over-steps the mark yet again when a patient has a suspected rare parasite. He hands another opportunity on a plate to Connie as she is forced to reprimand her ex (I think she enjoys it… see next highlight!) and Sam’s argument is that he saved a patient. Although Connie is quick to remind him that he hasn’t necessarily saved her yet. I have to agree with Connie, Sam is arrogant, I’m not sure if I like him or not but it’s never boring with him around.
Connie and Sam ~ CONNIE AND SAM! This is not a drill…. but probably a one-off if I know Connie, she’s bound to put a stop to it. Or will she? Do the mismatched pair belong together? Plus Connie has made some progress with Grace after taking her to her physio appointment – so is it happy families time? Time will tell and we’ll no doubt be left in limbo!
Ethan and Alicia ~ Another couple featured heavily, as Ethan is still hell-bent on bringing his brother’s murderer to justice and Alicia declares that she can’t stay by his side while he goes off on the rampage (I paraphrase!). So Ethan walks off alone – very poignant. Plus it’s so palpable how much Cal is missed, his ghost still haunts Holby ED that’s for sure.
