Times have been hard for Milo Clarke’s Teddy as the character recently learned his health could cost him his job.
But in upcoming scenes of the BBC One soap, he appears to have made a choice about his career.
Returning to the ED to hand in his resignation letter alongside his mother Gaynor – who can’t wait to get him home to Manchester – Teddy wonders why none of the paramedics wished him well after a health mishap.
Little does he know his controlling mother Gaynor, played by Maxine Evans, has actually been hiding a hamper from the team.
Yet after leaving his letter with a dismayed Jan, Teddy finds that Sah and Iain have picked up Al, a homeless patient the staff had already taken care of.
To Teddy’s shock, Al has been badly beaten and, when things get out of hand, the paramedic is adamant on tracking Al down despite his mother urging him to follow her home.
Gaynor is livid when Jan takes the ambulance and allows her nephew to join her.
The pair find Al collapsed at his camp and Teddy rushes over to help him, disregarding Jan’s warning to leave it to the team.
Things go from bad to worse for both Al and Teddy when the den comes crashing down on them as Jan watches in horror.
While the paramedics dig them out, but it’s clear Teddy has pushed himself too hard.
Later on, Jan reads his resignation letter, knowing how much he secretly wants to stay.
Teddy confronts her about the absence of well-wishes from the team – and they realise Gaynor is isolating him.
In a rage, Teddy confronts his mother over her behaviour, making the decision to not go to Manchester at all.
But Gaynor responds with an ultimatum: if he doesn’t leave with her, she will not come back.
In previous episodes of the long-running medical drama, Teddy experienced several dizzy spells but chose to ignore them.
As the situation worsened and Teddy collapsed on the job, he was unable to cover up his symptoms, despite him knowing his job would be at risk because of them.
It was later revealed he suffered from a heart condition and, more particularly, an ASD – Atrial Septal Defect – a hole in the heart between the upper chambers which can only be taken care of through surgery.
But what will he choose to do when faced with Gaynor’s dilemma?
