S20-E43 : TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE
It's been a while since we had an episode with any meaningful contribution from Lee but that all changed tonight. It wasn't the main storyline by any means (I reckon 'Flac' took the honours there) but it gently layered up the complex emotions surrounding a big question for Dofty.
Dom's (David Ames) scene with Sacha (Bob Barrett) and Lofty's with Leah (Hannah Daniel) were both beautifully played, while their glances across the operating table spoke volumes without a single word being uttered. I look forward to seeing this play out over the next episode or two or more - now we know Lee has signed on for another year at Holby, the pressure is off for storylines to be tied up quickly. We can happily return to the more realistic, natural, slow burn of a developing relationship.
Synopsis: Fletch finally confronts Jac about their feelings for each other. The death of a patient leaves Jason considering his own mortality. Deciding to propose to Greta, he seeks advice from his Holby family. Realising he's growing up, Dom looks to the future. Eager to protect their relationship, Lofty can't admit that they aren't on the same page.
The full episode can be viewed on BBC iPlayer until 22 November 2018 while below, with my apologies to those of the cast who have hit the cutting room floor, is the Lofty edit. There are also a few
screencaps from this week's episode.
