It was a Super Tuesday on The Resident as most of Chastain was feeling the love!
“Reverse Cinderella” could have been a Valentine’s Day episode because there were so many lovey-dovey, gushy moments sprinkled throughout the medical plotlines.
While the biggest moment — and the one that the series and Conrad has been building up to for weeks — was the CoNic engagement, many of the other couples either got their happy ending or a cute nod to their blooming love story.
Were the couples at Chastain hit by Cupid’s arrow?
CoNic has been in the works since season one, and it’s so wonderful to finally see them on track and embracing the love that they had for each other. They hit a few rough patches, but they managed to work it and realized they’re better together.
Nic’s approach to proposing was downright hilarious. She’s right that they aren’t your typical “romantic” couple, but that’s because she’s never been the romantic in their relationship. Conrad, on the other hand, totally is.
And thankfully, he salvaged the proposal because bringing up that it’s the “practical” next step, financially sound, and spewing off insurance facts is downright sad. Come on, Nic.
Conrad’s proposal was perfect — it wasn’t over the top, but it was genuine to who they are as a couple.
Now, it’s time to plan this wedding!
CoNic wasn’t the only proposal as the episode kicked off with Irving quoting Shakespeare and getting a little help from his co-workers at Chastain who arranged themselves to spell “Will You Marry Me.” It was just the right amount of quirky for the two of them. And it’s about time Jessica got a slice of happiness following her near-death experience.
But the belle of the ball was Pravesh, who was invited as Princess Nadine’s special guest to the gala being thrown by her father, the King, as an act of gratitude to Chastain and Red Rock.
Unfortunately, getting to the gala on time became a bigger issue as Pravesh’s patient, Gemma, an iconic fashion designer whom Mina adorably geeked out over, asked him to stay by her side when she went into surgery.
Gemma’s situation seemed simple at first, but once they realized the mass in her stomach was actually a furball from Rapunzel syndrome (an obsessive disorder brought on by eating hair), the procedure became more complex and time-consuming.
Thankfully, everything turned out okay for Gemma, who learned a valuable lesson when it came to taking care of herself and easying up on the work, and Pravesh was still able to make it to the event looking sharper than ever.
I mean, James Bond doesn’t have anything on this guy! But does he have what it takes to be a prince?
If you’re asking this gal or polling most of Twitter, they’d wholeheartedly say yes. Prince Pravesh has a nice ring to it, and he already looks like a Disney Prince Charming with his perfectly slicked back hair.
But if you’re asking Nadine’s father, the King, well, that’s a hard no. Upon meeting Pravesh, the King drew a hard line for Nadine and informed her she was going back to their country and would not be allowed to pursue a music career in Atlanta.
He also belittled musicians in Atlanta as if it wasn’t one of the best cities to be for an artist. The King seems to have a little trouble letting go — letting go of his daughter, of his expectations, of the old ways.
It’s hard to watch your daughter grow up and become her own person, a person whose life goals and ambitions sometimes don’t match what you had envisioned for them, but it at least warrants a conversation.
The King didn’t just pick the worst time to tell Nadine the news, he was also rude to Pravesh, who retreated and planned the leave the party before the King’s goddaughter, Rupa, went into labor, and his assistance was needed.
Her pregnancy was high-risk because her unborn son had a rare condition in which his heart was growing outside of his body, which meant a long night for AJ and Mina, especially after they realized that the case was even more complex.
These are two of the best surgeons in Atlanta whose egos supersedes them. Their confidence in their abilities never waver, and yet, in this moment, they both looked terrified and unsure that they’d be able to meet the needs of the surgery. It was the first time we’ve ever seen any doubt creep into their minds, which was slightly jarring but also true testament to their talents.
It’s critical that a doctor knows when something is above his capabilities, but, in this case, they have absolutely no choice. The baby doesn’t have enough time to get to Boston where a doctor is on stand-by, and if they don’t operate and attempt, the baby will surely die.
You have to wonder why Rupa was even in Atlanta when her pregnancy was not only advanced but also high-risk.
Of course, for storyline sake, it puts Chastain in a bind because either the outcome will be incredible, impress the King, and work in Pravesh and Mr. Kim’s favor, or it’ll go the other way and they could lose the child invoking the King’s wrath and forcing Kim to close OB before attempting to shutter Chastain completely.
Let’s hope that for everyone’s sake, it’s the former.
Any hospital that could save Rupa and her baby would likely get a hefty donation from the King, which would, in turn, save the OB department.
Also, does Kim ever have any fun? Live a little, dude.
Before Mina and AJ were called into duty, the two shared a lovely dance that deepened those feelings for each other.
The chemistry between them is so intense that AJ completely forgot he had a girlfriend.
Everything about this moment, the longing glances, the compliments about Mina’s dress, it all felt so right and hopefully began setting up for the love story we all want!
Also, AJ, Pravesh, or Conrad in a suit — it’s simply impossible to choose.
Nic and Conrad teamed up for a medical mystery that found a patient showing symptoms despite her tests and reports coming back positive and healthy.
The step-mother had a lot to say, but none of it was helpful. In fact, it seemed to be making the young girl question her own symptoms and go into a full-on panic simply because the step-mom wanted to make her “more independent” and thought she was faking her condition to get out of her responsibilities. Sometimes, the people you love and trust could be unintentionally harming you.
It was obvious that the tea the step-mom was giving her step-daughter was going to be the culprit with The Resident using this moment to make a stance and call out the possible dangers of alternative medicine.
While I wish they underlined that there are some benefits to alternative medicine (including acupuncture), that there are cases where it can be causing more damage. The tea was imported from China and the ingredients impossible to read, but they determined it had poison that was making the patient very sick.
The episode found just the right balance of medical storylines and personal romance that made for one truly entertaining hour of television.
What did you think? Are you happy for CoNic? Jirving?
Will Nadine and Pravesh find a way to stay together? Or does he keep falling in love with unattainable women?

‘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.
