For Shortland Street fans, tonight's episode will be the biggest of the year. 

The hospital drama is famous for their next level cliffhangers - remember the Ferndale Stranger? - so you can expect a lot of drama to go down tonight. 

But if you want a tease of what to expect, you may want to prepare for your favourite character to get the chop. 

A source close to the production divulged to spy.co.nz that tonight's ep is a thriller and “lives will be lost”.

“It’s definitely not what you will be expecting. It will keep you guessing right up to the very end,” the insider revealed to Spy.

So who will go? Spy's exclusive image from Monday’s final episode has left us wondering whether Esther Samuels may be the leaving the show:

When asked about the fate of her character, the actress has been cagey.

“I can’t reveal too much right now, but I will say that I’m looking forward to a really long break over summer.”
