The last few weeks have seen Alicia (played by Chelsea Halfpenny) go through hell and back on the BBC drama after she was raped by her colleague Eddie (Joe Gaminara).
The pair, who were once friends, have fought ever since Eddie raped his co-worker in a despicable act following a night out together.
Struggling to process the incident at first, it took courage for Alicia to finally report her attacker to the police, which culminated in a horrific moment that saw Alicia thrown through her flat window and taken to hospital.
Recovering from her ordeal, Alicia tentatively came back to work but in a shocking twist she discovered Eddie had decided to plead not guilty.
Following a tense day at work, Alicia decided to corner Eddie at the courthouse before the rape trial, and she found her bravery in a powerful speech.
She told the doctor she couldn’t wait for him to stand up in court and tell the room he wasn’t guilty so she could be called to give evidence.
“I want them to see what kind of man you truly are,” she declared.
But when the trial came to pass and Eddie was asked to give his plea on the stand, he had a completely unexpected change of mind.
Looking Alicia directly in the eye, the character finally appeared to show some remorse and revealed he was actually pleading guilty.
Taking to Twitter in shock, viewers shared their feelings on the development.
“As if #Casualty,” one person wrote.
Another posted: “Yes he pleaded guilty #Casualty.”
“#Casualty I was not expecting him to say guilty,” a third shared.
While a fourth said: “Wow he pleaded guilty #Casualty.”
Viewers continued to post about the turn of events, with one excited fan sharing: “YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’M SO HAPPY FOR A FICTIONAL CHARACTER WHAT AM I DOING WITH MY LIFE #Casualty.”
“EDDIE PLED GUILTY HOLY S**T #Casualty,” another exclaimed.
One fan admitted the scenes hit them hard, saying: “Whenever Eddie pleaded guilty I had a little tear in my eye for Alicia. #Casualty.”
“Casualty was so good tonight, honestly so happy for Alicia to finally get justice #casualty,” another added.
Casualty continues Saturday at 8.50pm on BBC One.
