After a brief hiatus because of the World Series, The Resident is back and it hit the ground running.
Chastain becomes overrun with patients from a plane crash that also found Bell on-board.
Pravesh beat himself up over the crash because just a day before, he allowed a drunk pilot to leave the hospital without reporting him.
Was it the right choice?
This storyline purposefully digs into ethical codes and how Pravesh is determined not to be the kind of doctor that Conrad Hawkins is.
The two of them haven’t seen eye-to-eye since Conrad tortured a patient to get him to talk, but ignoring a pilot’s alcoholism and sending him merrily on his way was naive of Pravesh.
The man is responsible for hundreds of people’s lives, and despite HIPA protecting patient confidentiality, there should be some protocol on when it is to okay to break the rules or bend them slightly.
Thankfully, Pravesh’s decision to send the pilot off with an AA pamphlet was justified when we learned that he wasn’t responsible for the crash. And seeing the crash alerted him to how serious and dangerous his drinking problem was.
But still… this could have ended badly.
I will commend Pravesh for sticking to his guns. He made it very clear that he doesn’t want to be the type of doctor to make up his own rules and he’s sticking to it even when it doesn’t feel like the right thing to do.
Dr. Bell may have been dubbed the “Sully of Atlanta” after saving all those patients, including the chatty guy next to him in economy class, but he’s not out of the woods yet.
He suffered from a herniated disc, which may or may not resolve on its own with therapy.
For Kit’s sake, I do hope it does so that she can stick it to Dr. Cain whose ego keeps inflating with every coming week.
Dr. Cain loves to boast about the fact that he’s billed 80 million dollars for the hospital.
Since he’s so open about how his main motivation is money, it was surprising he told off Pravesh and Conrad for assuming that he’d only take on their patient if he knew she had the best insurance in town.
That’s honestly the only reason he considered that patient.
Nic and Conrad are looking into the suspicious events leading up to Jessie’s death and if Conrad is correct, Hemopleatin may be to blame.
But in order to prove their theory, they need to get their hands on patient records which is going to prove difficult.
Sure, Conrad can always break the glass, but opening up patient files without going through the proper channels will be recorded on his file and could come back to bite him.
How far is Conrad willing to go to help and get answers?
Couldn’t they just loop in Bell who could probably get them an expedited request?
The Raptor got permission from his adoptive parents to meet his birth mother.
AJ always wanted to mee them, he simply felt guilty about doing it behind his parents’ back.
Truthfully, those two are not what I pictured when I imagined the people that raised a not stubborn, melodramatic, and opinionated doctor.
Family played a huge role in AJ and Mina’s storylines as she agreed to become the godmother of Adaku’s unborn child.
The way AJ said that “she’d become the legal guardian if anything happened” makes me seem like something’s going to happen.
They wouldn’t stress this storyline just to have Adaku survive. Mina is going to eventually get that baby.
AJ mentioning his desire for children couldn’t be a coincidence either.
What did you think of the episode?
Will Conrad risk everything and break the glass? Will they find another way?
Does justice for Jessie exist?
Will Mina and AJ ever own up to their feelings for each other?

‘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!
