Jac Naylor prepares for surgery…
It’s do or die time for Jac Naylor in the penultimate episode of Holby City.
Jac’s risky brain surgery is brought forward and the atmosphere is tense both in and out of theatre. In the operating room Jac’s crack medical team of close personal friends battle against a series of unexpected developments and must race against the clock to save her.
For many Jac Naylor is Holby City – so if she dies, it really hammers home the loss of this beloved series.
But our Jac’s a fighter, and Holby Hospital is a central-hub for miracles, so hope springs eternal. As Jac tells best friend Sacha Levy: “It’s going to work.”
Come on Jac!
Sacha Levy is duped by Jac!
As Jac prepares to go under the knife, in the hope her brain tumour can be removed, her best friend Sacha Levy (Bob Barrett) remains opposed to the risky operation.
Unaware the surgery’s been urgently brought forward, Sacha begs Jac to reconsider so she can pass away peacefully, rather than dying in theatre.
Jac, meanwhile, is determined to go ahead. In a bid to distract Sacha, she asks him to go to her flat and get her locket, which has deep sentimental value.
While at Jac’s home, Sacha has a sudden realisation about her motives and races against time to stop the operation. But it’s too late… Jac is already in theatre – where her surgical team face overwhelming complications.
Will Jac die?
