A massive power cut plunges Holby into darkness, as the drugs trial situation comes to a head, and Jordan gets closer to the truth about Zoe’s pregnancy.
The JAFA fellowship is due to be announced today and, for one doctor, life will change for ever. Lenny is prepared to go through with his deal with Ludlow to be crowned the winner but, oblivious, Yuki writes a preparatory speech recalling why he became a doctor: his brother died of cancer a few years ago and he’s wanted to help fix people ever since. But before the fellowship is announced, a major power cut rips across the north of Holby – will the winner collect his reward after all?
Meanwhile, Jay helps Jordan with the Crypto case and discovers that one patient has been missed off the list. When Jordan treats Ludlow’s daughter after a fall down the stairs during the power cut, he realises that she is the missing patient and that she’s suffering from Lupus. Stunned, Jordan realises that all of Ludlow’s research has been an attempt to find a cure for her.
Profoundly affected by the events of the previous week, Tess confides to Charlie that she’d like to go to the police to confess her part in it. Charlie says he cannot stop her from doing what she feels is right. Will Tess find a way to come to terms with her actions?
Zoe continues to lie to Jordan and the rest of the ED about her pregnancy but, after Jordan finds out the truth about Ludlow, he confesses his role in the drugs cover-up to Zoe and tells her they must no longer have any secrets between them. Zoe still doesn’t speak up but when Jordan finds fertility drugs in her handbag it looks like her secret may soon be out.
