Victim spoilers follow.
It’s a double episode on Victim next week and an impossible medical dilemma reawakens past trauma for Matthew.
Meanwhile, Marty worries his relationship with Adi is moving too fast, and Robyn witnesses a terrible tragedy.
Here’s a full collection of the 11 greatest moments to watch:
1. Matthew and Stevie’s relationship takes a dark turn
Stevie and Matthew’s night of passion ends on a sour note when Matthew has a nightmare and punches Stevie in the face.
Worried, Stevie insists Matthew needs to fix what’s causing the nightmares.
However, Matthew accuses her of being selfish and they argue, parting on bad terms. Wanting to get away from Stevie at work, Matthew volunteers to help with a prison van accident.
2. Matthew struggles with his PTSD
At the scene of the accident, Matthew feels the pressure when he is forced to decide who to save first between victims Yinka or Nathan.
Under pressure, Matthew experiences hearing and visual impairment but pulls through and makes the decision to start with Yinka – who is their best chance of saving at least one patient.
Despite this, Matthew promises Nathan that he ultimately intends to save them both, but Nathan doesn’t believe he deserves Matthew’s help anyway.
Nathan insists that only God can save a person and that He is beyond forgiveness, so refuses pain relief or sedation.
3. Marty freaks out about his relationship with Adi
As Marty prepares for another day by following Jan to the ambulance crew, Adi spontaneously asks if he can see an apartment with him.
Marty awkwardly jokes that he seems to want them to move in together, unaware that this is exactly what Adi wants.
Panicked, Marty isn’t sure he’s ready to make the commitment, leaving Adi confused as to where he stands.
4. Matthew breaks through
When Matthew quietly announces that Nathan’s injuries are seriously life threatening, Nathan realizes he is not ready to die after all and asks Matthew to pray with him.
At first, Matthew isn’t comfortable with the idea – but joins in and is perfect.
Miraculously, Matthew manages to stabilize him enough for emergency surgery, and Nathan wakes up convinced that God saved him for a reason and a purpose.
After Nathan tells him this, Matthew realizes the AV disturbances have stopped and wonders if he’s discovered a new way to deal with his repressed trauma.
5. Marty makes a decision
When a patient’s situation prompts Marty to realize he’s simply afraid of his feelings for Adi, he gets a red flag about his relationship.
Determined not to push Adi away, Marty apologizes for his earlier reaction and agrees to see the apartment after all.
However, Marty lightly insists that’s the most he’ll go for in terms of commitment, for now…
6. Stevie helps a troubled teenager
Stevie treats 15-year-old Sasha, who claims she tripped and hit her head on the floor.
Sasha’s story doesn’t add up, however, as it wouldn’t explain the glass in her wound.
When Sasha leaves the hospital of her own free will, Stevie finds her and gently encourages her to open up.
Hearing the whole story, Stevie persuades Sasha to talk to Adi and accept his help, leaving the teenager grateful that she didn’t give up on her.
7. Robyn witnesses a terrible tragedy
Robyn is late for school and becomes frustrated when Charlotte refuses to use her inhaler.
When they finally reach the playground, Robyn is horrified to find Charlotte’s classmate, Kendra, unconscious after a freak accident left her dangling from a tree branch, strangled by her own scarf.
8. Paul is back
As we previously revealed, Paul is back on our screens next week, for the next chapter in Robyn’s story.
When Kendra’s mother, Kaja, arrives at the ER, her English makes it difficult to communicate her daughter’s condition and the team desperately tries to contact a Polish translator, to no avail.
Wanting to help, Paul offers his services, claiming he’s visited Krakow with enough bachelor parties to get by.
However, he quickly finds himself overwhelmed and Kaja remains puzzled by what happened to her daughter.
9. Teddy’s mom arrives
Teddy’s mother, Gaynor, shows up at the ambulance station next week, worried about how her son is doing.
When Gaynor explains that she’s staying with Teddy for a few weeks, Jan belittles her overprotectiveness – the tension between the sisters is apparent.
Teddy, stressed from having to play the role of mediator between his mother and his aunt, is overcome with dizziness which he tries to ignore.
10. Robyn is determined to fight for change
Stevie recognizes the little girl from Charlotte school as an avid traveler, having previously suffered from several severe asthma attacks.
This prompts Robyn to talk to David about the effects of air quality on asthma cases and it makes her think about the traffic pollution around the Charlotte school.
While examining the air quality in this area, Robyn is shocked to discover illegally high levels of pollution. When Kendra tragically dies, a distraught Robyn tells Paul that if her lungs hadn’t been so damaged, she would have had a chance of surviving.
She is galvanized to do something to reduce local air pollution for the sake of her own daughter.
11. Teddy makes an ominous gesture
Gaynor returns to check on Teddy, and she and Jan argue. Overwhelmed, Teddy is faced with another stun, which he does his best to conceal.
Although Jan and Gaynor eventually come to a tentative truce, Teddy, stressed by all the tension between them, is drawn to Paul’s sales pitch about holistic treatments.
As Teddy leaves to have a good time with his mother, he steals two bottles of tinctures from Paul. What’s going on?
Victim airs these scenes in a double program on Saturday February 26 on BBC One.
