"Leave Me Alone" is the 706th episode of Casualty and the 20th episode of the 24th series. It featured the first ever appearance of Linda Andrews, portrayed by Christine Tremarco. She went on to make another guest appearance before arriving as a series regular towards the end of series 25 in the episode "The Gift of Life".
Following the traumatic events of the New Year, Jessica takes a look back at her life, loves and career at Holby. It’s 1998 and Jessica is a young nurse, casually flirting with Sean and enjoying wild nights out with best mate Linda. When Linda leaves to travel around America she gives Jessica a pebble saying that if Jessica ever finds herself in trouble it will be her lucky charm.
A few years later, Jessica and Sean get married. Sean is keen for Jessica to take elocution lessons so that she sounds like a successful surgeon’s wife and Jessica is keen to return to work after the birth of Amelia – much to Sean’s distaste. It appears that married life isn’t a bed of roses for the couple.
When Amelia is older, Sean and Jessica’s marriage is on shaky ground when, at a low ebb, Jessica meets Adam in a pub, goes home with him and is moved by their strong connection.
Back in the present day, Linda checks up on her old friend and it’s time for Adam to find out how his confession has been received.
