Rafferty delivers some shocking news in Sunday's Fair City on RTÉ One and the RTÉ Player.
The drama begins when project manager Maxine agrees to do co-worker Damien a favour - and no good deed goes unpunished.
Later, a shaken Rafferty arrives back at the site.
"What's the matter with you?" asks Damien.
"It's Maxine," Rafferty replies. "She was in an accident."
Fans can find out what happens next on Sunday on RTÉ One and the RTÉ Player at 8:30pm.
