Last night’s Hobly City was gloriously gay. Not only did Dom and Isaac get it on, but trauma surgeon Bernie and consultant Serena were finally reunited. The air time given to LGBT storylines in this episode was way more than their straight counterparts. That’s thrilling enough, but what’s even more exciting is that #Berena proved themselves to be a canon-worthy same-sex female relationship on a BBC show. And neither one of them is dead. This is great news for LGBT representation on mainstream TV and phenomenal news for #Berena fans.
Let’s relive all the fun in a mini-recap. If you haven’t yet seen the episode, you can watch it on BBC iPlayer now.
It’s Bernie’s first day back on the ward and Serena has bought a new blouse and worn extra make-up for the occasion. She’s clearly as hyped as we are. She tries to chat Bernie up with some sexy “perforated ulcer” talk and they make eyes at each other over an unconscious bloke in the operating theatre. We’re all desperate for them to confess their true feelings, but it’s not until Serena’s nephew, Jason, thoughtfully locks them in an office together that things really heat up.
Bernie: What’s he doing?
Serena: I believe he’s playing Cupid.
Bernie: How’s that going for him?
Serena: Not very well given that you’re leaving again.
Bernie: I won’t. If you give me a reason to stay.
Serena: Will this do?
Bernie and Serena snog each others faces off and we all whoop with joy.
