This week’s instalment of Casualty brought yet more edge of your seat drama, I am extremely impressed with the quality of the episodes. In fact it feel as though the one-shot led the way for the show stepping up to another gear – it just gets better. Sad to bid farewell to a much-loved character, though – here are some highlights!
Horror for Robyn ~ When a fire is started with malicious intent at Jez’s place, it’s Robyn and Charlotte who are caught up in it. Jez is not at all helpful as his mind wanders back to the baby lost in the previous fire we saw him attend. It’s up to Max to rescue his sister and niece. However, following baby Charlotte’s discharge from the ED, Jez is quick to spot that all is not well with the infant and jumps to action to remedy the situation when she stops breathing. What a day for Robyn, for Charlotte and not least, for Jez.
Comeuppance for Denise ~ The fire was an attack against Jez, with the Ellisons still at large the suspect in the frame was Denise. Following a careful ploy concocted by Jez, Iain and Mickey to catch her out, Mrs Ellison was carted off to prison. The introduction of the Ellison family which began in series 31 has not ended well for any of the characters involved, except maybe for Mickey.
Dylan’s dicing with danger ~ Some of the team are still in France and following the tragedy that played out in last week’s episode, Dylan is attempting to leave France with a stow-away! David is not on board with the idea, but leaves it to unfold when Dylan informs him that he will be taking the blame if the worst happens. How they escape the authorities and get away with their plan is a mystery!
Farewell Jez! ~ Mickey is moving abroad and he wants Jez to go with him. It’s all a bit of a last minute dash to catch up with the remaining Ellison as Jez finally decides to join him, and a will they/won’t they ensues. All’s well that ends well and the pair head off in the sunset together. The sadness being that we lose Jez, and I will miss him – Lloyd Everitt is a fine actor and I hope to see him in another role soon.
