Nic Nevin is way over her head as she tries to take down Dr. Lane Hunter on The Resident.
Hunter murdered a patient, Lily, simply to frame Nic who was “figuring out” that her chemo wasn’t actually helping patients, it was killing them. She seduced Dr. Bell to guarantee that he became Chastain’s CEO and fired Nic and now that Nic has some spare time on her hands as remains persistent in her quest for the truth, Lane is actually threatening her.
Truthfully, Nic should have realized just how far Lane was willing to go when she intentionally killed a patient to jeopardize her career from the get-go. If she wanted to take her down, she didn’t have to announce her plans at the local coffee shop!
Lane is good at one thing — spooking people. Inciting fear is one way of guaranteeing people will never undermine you or rat you out.
Nic realizes that’s exactly what she did to Anthony who was “screwed by Lane” after he started asking too many questions. See how both of them are defeated without a job as Lane makes millions? She’s got this figured out!
And it turns out, she’s been here before so she’s learned a thing or two about making indestructible; her reputation is unchallenged, she’s dating the CEO of Chastain and in a minute, she could sway the board to put her in that position. She’s playing her cards right.
Though, I’m a firm believer in the truth will come out eventually and even though Nic seems spooked, I don’t think she’ll give up digging. Eventually, she’ll hit a goldmine and have everything to bring down Lane, even as a “disgraced nurse” who is dating Conrad. Seriously, Lane ever went as far as discrediting him because of their “romance.”
When that man appeared on her doorstep with groceries, I was certain there was a bomb or something. Why would she just accept them without a single thought?
Things aren’t much better at Chastain — maybe she should be happy she got out of there?
Bell’s ego shot way up ever since he took on the CEO position. For now, his reputation as HODAD has been put on the backburner but given that he’s still going to serve as the Director of Surgery, it’ll come back into play in some major way.
Something tells him his new hire Dr. Austin is going to be his downfall. Austin is a great surgeon but he has no bedside manners and he’s not afraid to call it like it is. He was able to take down one surgeon during a surgery and if as he works with side-by-side with Dr. Okafor, he’ll realize Bell’s flaws.
Also, I hope they don’t give Dr. Okafor a romantic interest and especially not Dr. Austin. It’s clear Bell wanted her to persuade Austin to join the team and trusted her opinion since they’re both brilliant and uncensored, but I found their chemistry to be forced. Okafor made it clear that she’s not interested in a love interest so why botch up her story with one?
Then overworked Bradley fell through a skylight and onto Dr. Bell’s meeting table, which I initially believed was a hallucination. Bell tried to spin the story as a resident suicide and even had the nerve to conjure up statistics about suicide rates amongst male doctors when he knew damn well that this was an issue of a man being overworked.
Bradley was going continuing on a 30-hour shift and running on straight Red Bull. That’s obviously problematic. It didn’t take a doctor to realize the energy drink was to blame for the fall.
Thankfully, his story had a happy ending because Conrad figured out that Bradley didn’t even want to be a doctor. He felt trapped at Chastain — go figure — and admitted to thinking about taking the plunge many times before it happened accidentally.
Moral of the story — always choose a career path that you love. Life is too short to be doing anything other than what you love.
My only quip with this storyline is that Bradley seemingly tried to reach out to his friends on the team including Okafor and Conrad and both of them ignored him because he was so jacked up on his energy drink. They are equally to blame for not saying anything when clearly, their colleagues work hours were becoming an issue.
Pravesh was the only one who gave him the time of the day before the accident!
Thoughts on The Resident?
‘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.
