An explosion at Holby Airport, and the casualties included (a) a heavily pregnant woman, (b) the man who almost raped Mads and (c) lots of other people we don’t need to worry our pretty little heads about, but let’s just say A&E was heaving.
Clinical Nurse Manager Linda proved to be far more effective at wrangling the press than she’d ever been at wrangling her staff. She left that side of things to Tess, who is a beacon of Organisational Skills when the going gets tough. Though where was Charlie? It’s not like him to miss a Major Incident.
Linda realised that, apart from organising tea for the press, the thing she liked best about nursing was… well, nursing. She even got to help deliver the heavily pregnant woman’s baby! Mind you, so did Tess, with no detrimental effect on her legendary organisational skills, but Linda decided that being Clinical Nurse Manager was not what she wanted from her career, and Tess was welcome to have her old job back. I think she was forgetting that it had been Tess’s decision to stop doing the job in the first place, but still…
Meanwhile, Mads had saved the life of the man who tried to rape her, but he was caught out by karma when it was found he had syphilis. This was enough to persuade his wife to stop giving him an alibi for the night of the attack, so with luck he’ll soon be Behind Bars. Mads’s temporary flirtation with wearing a headscarf now apparently over, she looked sufficiently approachable for Lennie to be able to tell her he loves her – news she greeted with her trademark wide-eyed stare.
Adam got the chance to atone for his recent god complex by not accidentally-on-purpose killing, torturing or illegally medicating the rapist bloke, which was nice. It looks as though we’ve seen the last of Adam, though, as he walked out of the ED in that looking-back way that lets you know we won’t be seeing him for a while.
