But, as always, she puts herself into her work and goes above and beyond for a young couple in Darwin who receive a tragic diagnosis: the lady has cancer and refuses to inform her boyfriend, but Lucky believes he should know, so she tells him herself.
Lucky’s already traumatic emotional collapse on the ward is worsened when it’s revealed that she was controlling Kian’s addiction – or micro-dosing as it’s known – before he died, as she’s challenged by Chloe for breaching procedure.
Lucky, grieving for Kian and feeling forced into a corner, lashes out at EVERYONE for letting him down. Will it be determined after a heart-to-heart with Max McGerry that Lucky requires some time away from Holby?
