Pop to Metro for a review of this episode. But before you do…
Spoilers ahead if you haven’t seen it…
– I already knew that Zav was going to die in this episode before I watched it, but I didn’t know how. I was expecting some huge showdown between him and Cameron and for Cameron to do something really evil, possibly involving a scalpel in the basement (ouch). When he messaged Zav to meet him in the bowels (ouch) of the hospital I thought my predictions had been correct.
– So for Zav to get run over by a bike – well, that was a bit of a let-down. More plausible, and it does hold out the possibility for Cameron to become a reformed character eventually because so far he hasn’t done anything irredeemably bad. If he’d stabbed Zav in the hospital’s nether regions (ouch) that would have been the end of him as a character because really bad people always have to get their punishment in TV dramas.
– But Cameron is really reminding me of Coronation Street character John Stape – a serial killer, but generally more by accident than design.
– Donna though! Oh my lord. Jaye Jacobs broke my heart, and not for the first time.
– But talking of hearts, Nicky sobbing over Zav’s organ was a bit much. It’s not professional and it’s not hygienic.
– Essie chose the worst possible time to make her announcement, bless her.
– And yes, I am worried about Fletch.
– But that worry will have to be parked for a few months as Holby is now on a lockdown-induced break for a couple of months. See you on the other side!
