Casualty spoilers follow.
Casualty star George Rainsford has spoken about a surprising return in next Saturday's (May 30) special episode.
Ethan will attempt to move on romantically by going on a date with a policewoman named Amy (played by Catrin Stewart).
But the episode will feature flashbacks to Ethan's relationship with Fenisha, with Olivia filming new scenes.
Explaining the episode on Loose Women, George said: "It's the first date with this character, who we meet next week.
"The episode takes place over several timelines, so you find out when they met for the first time.
"She's a policewoman and she comes into the hospital. She's trying to basically interview one of the patients of Ethan's, so they're at loggerheads to begin with."
The actor added that the episode is all about his character so, "if you don't like Ethan, honestly, make plans, go out!"
George shared that the episode will flash back to the summer of last year, just after the couple got engaged before Fenisha's death.
"Which was on screen for no time at all really," he added. "So that was exciting and it was nice to have Olivia back."
When asked if it was strange to have Olivia back on set after mourning the character's death, George answered: "What was nice was that because it was a flashback, it was happier times, which we didn't massively get to establish.
"It was really fun."
Casualty airs on Saturdays on BBC One and streams on BBC iPlayer.
