Following a pepper spray incident at Holby, Jac’s suffered an allergic reaction that’s caused her eyes to swell up. But she’s determined to power on with a revolutionary laparoscopic procedure on famous tennis star, Yasmani Arriaga.
As Ollie tries to help Jac, she’s nothing but rude to him. And when Ollie stands up to her, Jac says he’ll no longer be assisting in Yasmani’s op. In theatre, though, Jac’s struggling with her eyesight and colleague Mo has to take over. Then, when a nauseous Mo has to leave, Jac has to page Ollie.
