Episode Summary

Connie tells [ID 1570]Elliot[/ID] that her husband, Michael, has been offered a job in Stockholm and she is considering relocating there. Elliot does everything in his power to make her reconsider. But Connie is angered when manager Sutherland approves funding for a scanner as a bribe for her to stay.

A young boy, Felix, is brought in seriously ill following an RTA. Elliot tells his mother, who is also injured, that he is brain damaged and won’t recover.

Felix becomes a possible donor candidate, for patient Mia, a girl who was previously on the ward. She returns to hospital with her doting grandfather, Mike and also her father, who has just reappeared on the scene. Mike faces a difficult decision regarding her operation and eventually decides on the riskier but better option, which is a success. As Connie and Elliot work together, it is only then she shows signs of reluctance to leave Holby.

After a sleepless night, Tricia and [ID 1443]Mark[/ID] receive good news regarding Tricia’s treatment. Her oncologist suggests she can take a short break from her chemotherapy but Mark is shocked when Tricia agrees, as she want to make herself feel normal again.

Meanwhile, Kyla and Harvey have a successful session with the mediator but as they walk out, past issues end up causing arguments. Kyla loses her temper and tells Harvey she will see him in court.

A man, Roger, is brought in with breathing problems and an infected arm tattoo. Mark treats him and reveals he has a form of pneumonia, which indicates he may have HIV.
