Gemma's nasty campaign against Alicia proved to have even worse consequences than we thought on Casualty tonight (April 22), as her bad behaviour has just left the life of Dr Lily Chao (Crystal Yu) hanging in the balance.
When Iain learns that it was his sister who was behind the lurid photos of Alicia that had been posted online, he wastes no time in kicking Gemma out and telling her to leave, leading her to take Iain's car at get drunk in a car park before taking the car for a spin.
Despite Lily deciding she can't help Gemma any more, she still agrees to meet Gemma after her shift finishes. But it seems her attempts to stop Gemma's dangerous actions may only do more harm than good as Lily is hit by the speeding car and ends the episode lying on the car park floor, lifeless, as Gemma stares on in horror.
The soap has been teasing for weeks now that a regular character will be killed off in a shock twist, so does this mean Lily is the unlucky victim?
It's certainly left the soap's fans worried that could be the case:
Casualty is keeping the information quiet for now but the show's producer Erika Hossington recently told Digital Spy that there's even more to come that could place a big name in danger.
"We have a stunt coming up in April where someone gets run over," she said. This will be very shocking because of who it is, but I can't say anything more.
"We have got something else following on from that which is also very shocking as well. We will have two episodes on the trot which will both involve two of our regular characters."
Casualty airs on Saturday nights on BBC One.
