07x26 The Honeymoon is Over
It is the day of Will’s memorial service. Holby Chief Executive, Peter, tells Connie that it is important that there is no negative publicity surrounding Will’s death. Connie gives a reading about Will at the service. Will’s grieving wife Susan tells Connie to shut up and tell the truth. Susan claims that Connie made Will’s life a misery by bullying and harassing him. She also adds that his death is Connie’s fault – if she had not put his picture in the paper Jodie would never have tracked him down. She finishes her outburst by saying Will’s blood is on Connie’s hands. After the service Mickie speaks to Susan, saying that she blames herself for Will’s death, Susan reassures her that it was nothing to do with her. Later, Peter and Zubin pay Connie a visit in her office. Peter informs her that Susan is making an official complaint about her bullying to the board. Connie denies she ever harassed Will but Zubin disagrees and starts to list examples of her behaviour. Connie retaliates, saying Susan is simply a grieving widow looking for someone to blame and that the board will back her up. Peter replies that the board has reservations about her opening up ITU prematurely and that they should reach a compromise – if she gives a quiet resignation he will give her a good settlement package, Connie is shocked. Owen and Diane are back from their honeymoon. Chrissie tells Tricia that she thinks Owen still has feelings for her. When Tricia sees Owen she warns him to stay away from Chrissie. Owen apologises to Chrissie, he says he was drunk the night they slept together and that he loves Diane. Chrissie suggests that Diane should be told about her husband’s infidelity. Later, Owen sees Diane and Chrissie speaking at the service and later asks Chrissie if she told Diane. Chrissie says she has finally realised how self-centered he is and no, she will not tell Diane about their night of passion. Zubin tries to talk to Jess about Sean.
