The show isn't on again for another two weeks, but here's all the biggest questions we've been left with in the meantime:
1. Will Ethan be okay?
The biggest talking point from tonight was undoubtedly Ethan's shocking ordeal, as his furtive feud with Stevie finally came to a head.
Ethan's life was left hanging in the balance in the second episode when volatile patient Luke took revenge on Stevie's behalf.
Alone with Ethan on the roof, Stevie finally got the opportunity to explain her resentment for him over her sister Emma's brain injury, and subsequent death. Tragically, just as they'd started to reach a fragile truce, Luke stabbed Ethan – prompting Stevie to step in and attempt to save him.
The closing moments of tonight's final episode then saw Dylan inform a shaken Stevie that her quick-thinking had saved Ethan's life, and we can indeed confirm that he's very much alive when we see him again later in the month. Thanks to Stevie's intervention, and the work of Dylan and the team, Ethan is told he'll make a full recovery. But the story is still far from over...
2. Can Ethan and Stevie call a truce?
With both their secrets now out in the open, Ethan and Stevie were finally starting to thaw towards each other, before the shocking stabbing changed everything.
Now aware of Stevie's connection to Emma, Ethan took full responsibility over what happened on that fateful day in 2016, but did insist that making such fatal mistakes was one of the unfortunate pitfalls of their high-pressure jobs.
Ethan also took the opportunity to be honest with Stevie over his Huntington's, opening her eyes to the everyday struggle he also has to face as well. But when Ethan wakes up from his surgery, the big question is: will he be grateful to Stevie for saving him, or will he blame her for putting him in hospital in the first place?
3. Is Stevie facing punishment?
Something isn't adding up for Dylan when we see him again, as he questions Stevie on what really happened on the roof.
Although Stevie insists what happened was nothing but an unfortunate accident, Dylan is quick to ask her why she told Luke that Ethan was her enemy.
Stevie then confides in Faith about what really happened, and why, but she knows that her fate at the hospital largely depends on what Ethan says when he wakes up...
4. What next for Jacob?
Jacob was forced to face his demons tonight, when he returned to work in the wake of Tina's exit.
Despite his determination to pretend like nothing happened, Jacob's profound trauma became apparent during Luke's violent outburst.
Finally acknowledging his ordeal, Jacob approached his colleagues and told them he was stepping down as Head of Nursing. What does the future hold for Jacob now?
5. Is Rash in serious danger?
Rash's unwitting involvement with Hafsa's gang intensified tonight, and his dad suffered as a result.
Horrified that this was now not only impacting him, but his family too, Rash took a stand and called the police – determined to end it for good. But is the problem really over, or has Rash just placed himself in even more danger?
6. Will Robyn give Paul a chance?
Paul returned to the ED tonight, determined to put Charlie's cat-fishing scandal behind him. After apologising to Charlie, Paul focused his efforts on Robyn – desperate for her to give him another chance.
Sadly, Paul's endeavours were in vain as she later made it clear that nothing can ever happen between them, as she doesn't let people into her daughter Charlotte's life very easily. But will a lonely Robyn ultimately decide to take a chance on love? Or is this the end of the road for the old friends?
7. What happens next?
As we said above, Casualty isn't on next weekend, but will be back on screens on Saturday, November 20. Our next lot of ED drama will see Stevie face the music over her actions tonight.
Jan and Ffion will also be taking centre stage as a terrifying situation forces them to reevaluate their future together, while Ethan makes a big decision.
Casualty continues on Saturday, November 20 on BBC One.
