Casualty spoilers follow.

Casualty is set to air a heartbreaking tragedy for Stevie Nash (Elinor Lawless) as part of its upcoming double episode this Saturday (November 6).

Stevie's sister Emma is in a care home after suffering a severe brain injury years ago. Stevie blames Emma's condition on Ethan Hardy (George Rainsford), who made a mistake while treating her, and she's been planning revenge ever since.

Ethan is so far oblivious to her plot. All he knows is that she doesn't like him, questioning his every decision and double-checking every dosage he asks for.

The two are forced to work together when a racist police offer injures a man named Sol and manipulates the situation to avoid any suspicion, although his partner Brian and Sol's grandmother provide enough evidence to prove the truth.

Unfortunately for Stevie, she misses the signs of a head injury and Sol dies.

As Ethan goes to comfort a devastated Stevie, new receptionist Paul Pegg (Paul Popplewell) hands him a note for Stevie, but Ethan pockets it for later.

Ethan opens up to Stevie about the fact that he has Huntingdon's disease, and tells her that mistakes are horrible, but sadly are a part of the job.

That's when Paul runs in and asks if Ethan has delivered the message: that Stevie needs to go to the care home and see Emma as soon as possible.

Sadly, by the time she gets to the home, Emma has died.

The second episode in the double bill, which you can read more about here, sees Stevie channel all her grief and rage at Ethan – and a misunderstanding could leave him fighting for his life.

Meanwhile, the drug-dealing gang storyline with Rash Masum will continue, as his situation gets even more dangerous.

The Casualty double bill will air on November 6, with the first showing at 8.45pm and the second at 9.25pm on BBC One.
