We’re still smiling from last week’s surprise Zax reunion (come back forever, you two!), but it’s back to bleak reality tonight as Connie returns to the ED and Elle continues to despair of troubled son Blake.

While Connie looks desperately ill, Ethan’s furious she’s back on the day of his consultancy interview – will she scupper his chances?

Meanwhile, Jacob can’t help overhearing that his son has landed himself in yet more trouble, and decides it’s time to hand Elle a few home truths… cue a blazing row!

As for Dylan – has he really managed to stop himself from relapsing into alcoholism or do more demons await?
