Well, Gordon Page is a pain in everyone’s side, isn’t he?
I don’t think I’ve ever despised someone as much as I despise him. Page will do anything to make his money including knowingly killing and hurting patients.
Sadly, the same can be said for Marshall Winthrop.
Do you know how we all believed that maybe Marshall had turned over a new leaf after his near brush with death and reconciliation with Conrad? We were wrong.
Winthrop successfully stopped Page’s VNS from going public by convincing the military that his products were shipped from China, but he then turned around and tried to make a deal with Page that would make them both a lot of money.
Winthrop saw just how dangerous the defective VNS was, saw how upset Conrad was because it put Henry’s life at risk, and he still put business first.
My jaw was on the floor.
At this point, everyone has become a target for Page.
Zoey was Chastain’s only hope and bringing light to Page’s defective device and even she managed to be bought out.
This twist really upset me because Zoey trusted the man and the company that almost killed her child.
Page should never be trusted, and though his offer was appealing, Zoey’s main goal should have been to spread awareness so that other parents didn’t go through the same thing.
Instead, she allowed herself to be silenced by a man who has gone back on his word multiple times and cannot be trusted.
If Marshall buys out Quo Vadis, Page won’t honor the promise he made her and she will have lost the only chance at going public.
Then, of course, there’s Abe who seemingly knew about Page’s defective valves but refused to talk unless it was with AJ.
It’s a shame Mina and Pravesh couldn’t reach him in time because his meetup with Page afterward was eerily similar to Julian’s just before they ran her off the road. It was nice knowing ya, Abe.
Aside from the hoopla surrounding Page, Bell treated a colleague, Simon, a man he’s known since his residency.
Simon saw how much Chastain changed Bell, but the two still remained good friends.
His prognosis was bleak but as a gambler, he decided to have the risky surgery and hopefully “beat the odds.”
Sadly, he didn’t, and the scene with Bell cleaning up the operation room with such care was a beautiful sendoff to Simon.
He did him proud, even if he couldn’t save his life.
This season has unearthed a more complex Bell; he’s no longer a one-dimensional bad guy. Bell gets along with his co-workers despite the few spats with Conrad, he cares about patients, and he’s back to doing surgery and being good at it.
His dynamic with Simon and the way he cared about him even after his death humanized Bell and made him a more likable character.
Nic was split between Chastain and her clinic with Alec as she helped one of his patients from back home with a gallbladder issue.
But really, we’re all laser-focused on the fact that Alec made a move on Nic despite knowing she’s with Conrad.
Nic handled it professionally, but things are never going to be the same between them.
Alec isn’t wrong about the chemistry between them, but is it enough to jeopardize what she has with Conrad? Would she even want too?
I just hope Alec respects her and her relationship enough not to go in for a kiss.
I wouldn’t be opposed to the two of them as a couple, but my heart beats for Conrad and that will never change!
What did you think about this week’s The Resident?
Did Marshall make you proud only to dissapoint you in the same scene? Is Nic going to fall for Alec? Is anyone going to take Page down?
‘The Resident’ Season 4 Will Tackle the Coronavirus Pandemic
The season 4 premiere of The Resident is going to hit a bit close to home.
For years people have turned to television for an escape, but lately, reality and fiction are beginning to bleed together.
Our everyday experiences and dilemmas are beginning to shape and influence the content we see on television, and, in turn, that content becomes a direct reflection of our society and provides poignant commentary on current events.
For the most part, it’s exciting to see our daily lives reflected on screen as it offers a more robust and representative experience. However, it also means that it’s harder to escape the monotony of everyday life in lockdown.
There’s absolutely no way to escape the pandemic plaguing our world — it has consumed every part of our lives.
Everywhere you look, you’ll (hopefully) see face masks, people using hand sanitizer, and practicing social distancing.
And now, you’re going to see more of that reflected on the small screen.
The medical drama, which often draws from real-life scenarios for inspiration, will tackle the pandemic in its upcoming season.
Series co-creator Amy Holden Jones told Us Weekly: “Our premiere deals with the early days of the outbreak, focusing on the effect on our hero doctors and nurses as they risk their lives daily.
She added: “Long-term, sadly, the after-effects of COVID-19 will go on, even after we have a vaccine, and we’ll be there to show that, as well.”
The show’s writing team includes several medical professionals who weigh in on storylines to ensure accuracy. Daniel Lama and Eric Lu penned the coronavirus inspired episode.
Meanwhile, an on-set nurse has spent her time volunteering in New York City and Texas during the pandemic.
Jones said the episode would honor the heroes fighting on the frontlines stating, “their stories are moving, deep and tragic and continue to accumulate to this day,” Jones added. “We hope soon to share all we have learned.”
The show hasn’t begun production on the season just yet, so it may take a bit until we get to see these pandemic episodes considering, you know, we’re in a pandemic ourselves, and that pandemic has made it harder for cast and crew to film new episodes of our favorite TV shows.
However, this wouldn’t be the first mention of coronavirus in the series as the season 3 finale dealt with a highly contagious superbug that was initially compared to coronavirus.
The Resident also won’t be the only drama incorporating the pandemic into their storylines. Grey’s Anatomy previously announced that they would touch upon the pandemic with showrunner Krista Vernoff stating, “there’s no way to be a long-running medical show and not do the medical story of our lifetimes.”
It’ll be interesting to see these two shows tackle the virus in their own unique ways. As we look to relate to our favorite characters in our shows, you have to admit,, there’s nothing more relatable than seeing their lives altered by the same disease that has stripped us of so many joyous moments this year.
Do you think it’s a good idea for shows to address the pandemic? Sound off in the comments!

‘The Resident’ Renewed for Season 4 at FOX, Expected to Return in 2021
The Resident has a pulse!
Fox has renewed the beloved medical drama for a fourth season!
The exciting news means that The Resident will be able to conclude the storylines that were interrupted by the coronavirus outbreak, which shut down production on shows indefinitely.
Season 3 ended abruptly because it wasn’t able to finish filming the episodes.
We’ll also get to see more of the power-dynamics at play at Chastain as Logan Kim turned his back on the once-invincible Dr. Cain and attempted to schmooze up to Conrad Hawkins.
While he medical drama had been critiqued for exaggerating and portraying unrealistic incident by medical professionals and the industry, the series has also amassed a rather dedicated following largely due to its thrilling weekly patient cases and the relationship and chemistry between many of its cast members.
Plus, fans love that the series tackles on “ethical” issues surrounding the healthcare industry head-on.
TV Series Finale indicated that the audiences have tapered off with a 21% drop since the second season, but despite the lower-ratings, there’s no denying that The Resident has a strong pull amongst dedicated fans who watch faithfully.
Unfortunately, similar to many The CW shows, The Resident won’t return until 2021 as FOX released its 2020-2021 fall TV schedule, which relies heavily on football (if the seasons returns as expected) and many animated series. The network plans to hold all scripted offerings for midseason premieres.
FOX also renewed sitcom Last Man Standing leaving Prodigal Son and Outmatched on the fence.
