The following article contains a discussion of themes including suicide that some readers may find upsetting.
Holby City spoilers follow.
Next week on Holby City, Lucky returns to the hospital and makes a big decision about her future, while Jac struggles with her anxiety and Josh finally tells Ange the truth.
Here's a full collection of the seven biggest moments coming up:
1. Lucky returns to the hospital
Lucky is readmitted next week after falling unwell in her rehabilitation unit.
Max is concerned to hear that Lucky is still having suicidal thoughts and doesn't feel any differently than she did the last time she saw her.
Sacha also urges Lucky to make some changes that could improve her physical comfort, but Lucky refuses to listen – adamant that she doesn't want to live her life the way it is.
2. Evie is back
Fletch's troubled teenage daughter Evie is also back on the wards next week, sporting a brand new problem.
Fletch is alarmed to find Evie with a black eye after she got into a fight at college.
Evie is hurt when Fletch makes a throwaway comment about her behaviour of late but finds solace in Lucky – who is being treated nearby.
Lucky is delighted to see Evie and assures her that neither of them is to blame for their tragic ordeals.
3. Fletch finally makes a breakthrough with Evie
Following her heart-to-heart with a struggling Evie, Lucky is determined to help her find peace with dad Fletch.
Lucky urges Fletch to be honest with Evie about what's troubling him, and in turn, prompts Evie to do the same.
Finally understanding each other, Fletch promises Evie that it's not her he's angry with – it's Jeni – and they vow to put their recent difficulties behind them.
4. Jac struggles with her reality
It's a big day for Jac as she’s about to start Proton Beam Therapy to shrink her brain tumour.
However, Jac falters at the eleventh hour when Eli's wife Amelia turns up – with some tragic news. Amelia explains that she's been allocated a place on the trial as another candidate passed away unexpectedly; one of Jac's friends.
Devastated, Jac finds her anxiety overwhelming her, but can she find the strength to go ahead with the treatment?
5. Josh tells Ange the truth
Josh busies himself with work in a bid to avoid Ange, who is back at work. When Josh nips out for a run, disaster nearly strikes when one of his patients begins to deteriorate.
Fed up with carrying the burden for him, Eli tells Josh that he can no longer support him solo, as Amelia's brain tumour is back and she needs him more.
This prompts Josh to finally tell Ange about his bulimia, but how will she react?
6. Louis supports Lucky
Upon realising that Lucky is back at Holby, Louis is shocked to learn the truth about her suicidal thoughts and also what happened with Kylie.
Taking a different approach to his mum, Louis listens to Lucky and whisks her away from the wards, on her request.
Once alone, Louis reminds Lucky of the unwavering support she offered him before his transition. Louis urges Lucky to take her own advice and give her new life a go, before making any final decisions. But will Lucky listen or is her mind already made up?
7. Lucky makes a big decision
Louis manages to get Lucky to think about her situation in a different way, and she returns to the ward feeling more optimistic than she's felt in a long time.
As she confides in Max, Lucky explains that she's made a big decision about her future – but what is it?
