I Got It Bad And That Ain't Good
Series 18 Episode 17
Baz and Charlie fever has gripped the nation. Even the BBC continuity announcer
is hooked introducing Casualty with ‘Charlie and Baz. It’s like old times.’ The
episode opens with Charlie and Baz kissing in her car outside the hospital. As
they stop Charlie says he doesn’t want to get out, Baz tells him not to and then
Charlie declares he needs the rest! No wonder the episode was on post watershed
tonight! Charlie asks Baz if he can ask her something but she says she needs
time. He leaves the car and she says she’ll call him.
Charlie whistles his way into the department and his good mood is quickly picked
up on. Josh asks Charlie how the Lapland trip was. Charlie tells him it was
great – the best holiday he’s had in years. Charlie explains to Josh that he got
a present he wasn’t quite expecting – he and Baz are back together. Josh is
baffled and asks if Dan knows. Charlie says he doesn’t and Josh understandably
feels for Dan as he has been in the same situation.
Baz is at home making supper whilst Louis and Dan play chess. Dan joins her in
the kitchen and kisses her. She moves away from him and avoids his advances. He
tells her he is aware she can’t stand to be in the same room as him, yet she can
spend all afternoon visiting and old friend (Charlie!). Dan seems slightly
suspicious and Baz questions him. He tells her ever since Lapland she has been
distant. Baz snaps back that maybe she is preoccupied by her dying father.
Kenneth watches Baz as she sadly sits alone. He shuts the door on Louis and Dan
and sits beside Baz. He asks if she is all right and when she replies yes he
tells her she has never been able to lie to him. He tells her he knows about she
and Charlie – he saw them in Lapland! Baz tells him she loves Dan, but the thing
with Charlie scares her. Kenneth tells her she has to talk to Dan as he already
knows something is wrong. He tells Charlie and Dan both deserve better then
sneaking around and advises her to tell Dan before he finds out for himself.
Baz joins Dan in the sitting room and he sarcastically comments that she should
be careful, as they are alone together. She tells him he has every right to feel
angry. Dan says he has been over sensitive and has been seeing things that
aren’t there. Baz is honest and tells him he hasn’t. She says she wants him to
know how much he means to her and that she is sorry because this is the last
thing he deserves. However she and Charlie have always been there and being back
in Holby has made it happen again. Dan is shocked and asks Baz if she has slept
with Charlie. Her silence says it all and he storms out the house taking his car
Whilst Charlie is treating a patient, Dan barges into the department. He looks
through all the cubicles before he finds Charlie. He punches him and Charlie
falls to the floor. Dan tells Charlie to keep away from his family and asks why
he couldn’t have left Baz alone – he obviously never used to watch Casualty.
Before Dan can kill Charlie, Josh comes to the rescue and holds him back. As Dan
is dragged out of the department Baz enters. She rushes to Charlie and shouts
back to Dan asking what he’s done. Charlie is bleeding and comments to Baz that
she must have told Dan. Baz says she’s sorry and Charlie tells her to go after
Dan – she shouldn’t leave it like this. Charlie thanks Josh for being so fast on
his feet!! Ahh SuperJosh!! Charlie’s patient then asks Charlie if Baz is ‘a bit
of a goer.’
Baz follows Dan into the car park where he screams and shouts at her. Dan rants
about the fact they have only been married 3 months and Baz says she knows that.
Dan says he thinks she forgot right about the time she hopped into bed with
Charlie. Dan says he gave her everything and asks what he did wrong. Baz says he
did nothing wrong and tries to explain that she and Charlie has just always been
there. Baz stops talking when she realises it’s not making any difference. Dan
talks about Louis and explains that he has been a father to him and has loved
him because he is part of her. He asks her what he’s supposed to do next – hop
on a plane, go back to Canada, disappear? Baz remains silent but we all shout
Baz joins Charlie in his office and he tells her that in Dan’s position he would
have probably done the same. She says he wouldn’t have. Charlie comments that
Dan must love her a great deal. As Charlie searches for an answer Baz tells him
what he has been longing to hear – she loves him and always will. Charlie tells
Baz he wishes things could be different. Baz says she doesn’t, as for all the
hurt and the mess, she’s happy – happy to be back with him again. Charlie asks
her what’s next and she says she doesn’t know. Baz asks him to hold her and he
does so. Smiling as he takes her in his arms.
After this fantastic episode has the world finally realised that nothing stands
in the way of Everlasting Love?
