Spoilers: Ric dies in horrifying Holby City episode tonight?

Massive trauma unfolds for Ric Griffin (Hugh Quarshie) in tonight’s Holby City, beginning with a scary situation when he starts to experience problems with his vision in the hospital car park.

We recently learned that Ric has a problem resulting from his earlier brain tumour, and that he needs urgent surgery. So why is he putting off his operation and trying to carry on working as normal? Could it be anything to do with the fact that it’s also the day of Guy Self (John Michie)’s disciplinary hearing, and Ric wants to make sure his rival can’t do any more damage at Holby?

Whatever his reason, it’s clear that Ric isn’t well – and when his colleagues discover just how bad things have become, Ric’s case suddenly becomes a priority – and his life hangs in the balance in a dramatic and unexpected way.

Meanwhile, Essie (Kaye Wragg) has been frantically trying to contact Frankie to talk about arrangements for Isla after she’s gone – but Frankie isn’t answering her phone. What Essie doesn’t know is that Sacha (Bob Barrett) asked Frankie to stay away, thinking that looking after Isla would give Essie a reason to keep going. Now she’s exhausted and ill, and terrified that Isla will end up in care after everything she’s been through to avoid that happening. Worst of all, Sacha seems to be avoiding her. Will Essie find out the truth? And will Frankie come back for Isla?

Nicky (Belinda Owusu) thinks it’s time Chloe (Amy Lennox) got back on the dating scene following the break-up of her relationship with Cameron (Nic Jackman), and encourages her to contact a man on a dating app. Then Chloe meets another attractive man in the hospital car park (they’re like buses, these attractive men). But when she gets to the ward, she’s concerned to find that her patient looks oddly familiar. Can she keep her personal and professional life separate?

Cameron seems to have it in for Louis (Tyler Luke Cunningham) and criticises him in front of a patient. So when Cam offers to keep an eye on Louis for Ange (Dawn Steele), does he really have the nurse’s best interests at heart?
