Casualty spoilers: Alicia Munroe to EXPOSE Eddie McAllister after revealing her rape?

After explaining the details of her horrifying rape to Bea Kinsella (played by Michelle Fox) last episode, Alicia (Chelsea Halfpenny) sought more help.

Although initially reluctant to visit the sexual assault referral centre as suggested by Bea, she eventually plucked up the courage to attend.

She couldn’t completely reveal what had happened though, as she told the therapist about her ordeal but under the guise that it was someone else’s story.

As the sexual assault worker described the intricacies of consent, it all became a little too much for Alicia, causing her to bow out of the clinic.

Throughout the episode she crossed paths with rapist Eddie McAllister (Joe Gaminara) a number of times, causing Alicia to become furious.

Later on she witnessed Eddie grab the arm of one his colleagues, throwing Alicia into a rage, causing her to scream at him in the ward.

This confrontation caused a brutal argument which saw Alicia flinching when Eddie touched her.

The final moments of the argument saw Alicia breaking down, only to later be found by Bea.

And her words of encouragement allowed her to gather the bravery to go back to the sexual assault clinic.

In the final moments of the show viewers saw Alicia announcing to the worker: “I think I was raped.”

This may spell the end of Eddie, as he would surely be sacked from his position.

However this is only the beginning for Alicia, as she may have to press charges against him.

This may also lead to a tough court case in coming episodes.

Fans of the show poured tweeted their sorrow for Alicia during her counselling session.

One wrote: “I think I was raped” my heart just breaks more and more for Alicia that she thinks this is her fault #casualty.”

Another said: “Me heart is breaking #Casualty.”

“Oh #Casualty, why you got me in tears again #Alicia finally letting someone help her… was feeling seriously angsty watching her for the last few episodes #Ask Brilliant as always #Casualty,” wrote a third.

While other fans praised Chelsea’s portrayal of the devastating situation.

One announced: “@ChelseaHP is incredible. Playing the character of Alicia and this storyline brilliantly! #Casualty.”
