Dominic Copeland's violent ex-lover Isaac Mayfield has a score to settle – but will Dom's hubby Lofty be a pawn in his game?
Following the death of his father, Dominic Copeland’s abusive ex-lover Isaac Mayfield returns to Holby this week to visit his dad in the mortuary and collect his belongings. Dom, however, is keen to see the back of him.
When he doesn’t get the sympathy he wants from Dom (David Ames) – who recently separated from his nurse husband Lofty – Isaac focuses his attentions elsewhere.
Kind-hearted Lofty (Lee Mead) agrees to accompany Isaac to the mortuary, where a ‘grieving’ Isaac breaks down. Seemingly distraught, Isaac goes in for a hug and, as Lofty pats him reassuringly, events take a surprising turn when Isaac tries to kiss him!
Disgusted by Isaac’s action, Lofty confronts him outside the mortuary. Isaac goads him; suggesting that, despite him only recently splitting from Dom, there he was with his ‘arms wrapped around his ex’.
When Isaac then tells Lofty that Dom settled for second best after being with a ‘real’ man like him, Lofty squares up to Isaac. Knowing all about Isaac’s violent past, has he made a big mistake?
Elsewhere, when Chloe gives Cameron some encouragement as they work together on a case, he misreads the signs and tries to kiss her!
Also, Hanssen does his best to form a bond with his grandson Oskar. Will the youngster bring out the child in him?
