Holby City spoilers follow.
Next week on Holby City, Max reels from Lucky's impossible ask, while Ollie battles his demons after his return and Josh hides a major secret from Ange.
Here's a full collection of the seven biggest moments coming up:
1. Josh is feeling the pressure
Between shifts on Darwin, caring for his premature twins and running with Eli, Josh is feeling the strain. His mum Elaine is particularly worried about the pressure Josh is putting himself under, but Ange is quietly confident that he is taking everything in his stride.
Josh's problems intensify when Jac discovers that he has been taking caffeine tablets on shift and reprimands him.
Although Eli is quick to defend Josh, he is unable to let it slide when it becomes apparent that the pills are having a detrimental effect on his performance in theatre.
2. Hanssen worries about Ollie
Hanssen has reluctantly agreed to take on Ollie as his new mentee following his return last night (October 12), despite their shared and painful history. However, it's clear that Hanssen still has grave concerns about whether Holby is the right place for Ollie to be doing his return-to-work programme, given everything that happened before.
While Ollie manages to pass the physical assessments with flying colours, Hanssen addresses his worries that this still doesn't mean he is ready emotionally. Can Ollie convince him otherwise?
3. Ollie battles his demons
Despite Hanssen's palpable uncertainty, Ollie is adamant that Holby is the best and only place for him. He wants to finish his training off on his home turf, before moving to America where he can watch his son grow up.
Ollie does his best to convince Hanssen, and everyone else, that he has moved on from his harrowing ordeal at the hospital, but a later incident suggests otherwise.
When Ollie has a run in with a vandal on AAU, it's clear that the scars of the past haven’t completely healed.
4. Max reels from Lucky's tragic request
Max is reeling from Lucky's impossible request and is determined to make her friend believe that life is still worth living.
Feeling the pressure, Max asks Kylie to spend some quality time with Lucky and they have a touching heart to heart outside the hospital. But will this change Lucky's mind?
5. Lucky gives Max an ultimatum
Kylie is left confident that she's managed to lift Lucky's spirits afterwards, and relays this to Max. Unfortunately, a well-meaning gift from Kylie only serves to make Lucky's anguish all the more intense and she tells Max that she still hasn't changed her mind.
Lucky insists to a horrified Max that if she doesn't assist in ending her life, she will find another way without her. What will Max do?
6. Hanssen makes a final decision
Still torn over whether mentoring Ollie is the right thing to do, Hanssen has an emotional heart to heart with his old friend about the damage Fredrik's actions have inflicted on the hospital – and his personal life.
Despite this, Ollie is still determined to complete his training at the hospital and reminds Hanssen of all the things he was told he'd never do again, but still did.
At the end of a challenging day, Hanssen announces that he's made his final decision – but what is it? And what will it mean for Ollie?
7. Josh's past is revealed
As Josh continues to push himself to the limit, viewers will finally get an insight into why Elaine is concerned.
When Ange innocently mentions Josh's intense exercise regime, Elaine is unable to shake off her growing fears and confronts him.
Elaine is worried that Josh, who once battled bulimia, is having a relapse – but he insists that this isn't the case. However, when Josh nearly collapses from exhaustion during his second run of the day, and turns down a meal with Ange, it seems that Elaine has a right to be concerned.
Holby City airs these scenes on Tuesday, October 19 at 7.50pm on BBC One.
