Casualty spoilers follow
Casualty's Charlie Fairhead and Connie Beauchamp find themselves in a terrifying position this week as they are caught up in a hostage situation.
This Saturday's episode sees a dishevelled and angry Charlie (Derek Thompson) reluctantly return to the ED to give back his uniform and staff pass following his decision to quit earlier this year, but he is stopped in his tracks by a man outside called Mick – who, unknown to Charlie, is carrying a gun.
After Mick explains that he needs to see his son, Charlie unwittingly encourages him to head inside and refuses to take no for an answer.
Inside the hospital, Charlie encounters Connie (Amanda Mealing) and quickly loses his temper with her for how she treated his late wife Duffy. Incensed, Mick pulls out his gun and starts taking hostages and it quickly becomes apparent that he sees Charlie as an equally-wronged ally.
Charlie decides to use his position to try to save his colleagues, but when Mick searches Charlie's pockets, he discovers Charlie's ID and starts to see him as an enemy too.
Brave Charlie makes the decision to sacrifice himself, convincing Mick to let the other hostages go and just keep him. Mick agrees and when he and Charlie are alone, Mick admits that he has lost all hope.
Charlie assures him that he can still make the best of his situation, but how will volatile Mick react?
This week's episode also sees Dylan Keogh (William Beck) make his feelings for Faith clear in a very dangerous way, which leaves Faith in no doubt about his crush on her, and sees another development in the complicated relationship between Ethan Hardy (George Rainsford), Will Noble (Jack Nolan) and Fenisha Khatri (Olivia D'Lima).
Casualty airs these scenes on Saturday, May 30 at 8.40pm on BBC One.
