The past comes back to haunt doctor Ethan Hardy this week when heavily pregnant Leigh-Anne Carr is admitted to the ED after her water’s break. Unknown to him, Leigh-Anne is the former girlfriend of Scott Ellisson – the man who killed Ethan’s brother Cal. The same Scott Ellisson who Ethan later intentionally allowed choke to death in the ED!
It’s a difficult birth, but Ethan manages to gain Leigh-Anne’s trust. However, when she opens up to him that she hates Holby ED because it’s where Scott and his father died Ethan goes into shock!
At first, stricken with grief and guilt, he tries to fob off Leigh-Anne’s care to Jacob. But when Ethan discovers Leigh-Anne’s been evicted that morning he has a change of heart.
