A snowstorm hit Atlanta and it was anything but peaceful at Chastain.
I don’t know how this series never fails to have a bad episode, but somehow, they manage it.
A car crashed into the ER — almost exactly as it happened last week on Chicago Med — except on this show, the driver was a young girl with her brother who drove their frozen father to get help.
Mina’s a brilliant doctor, but since the girl reminded her of her late sisters and put so much pressure on her to save her dad, she began doubting her abilities.
She didn’t feel comfortable flying solo without a residing doctor, but unfortunately, The Raptor was having trouble starting his car.
He did mention the winters aren’t nearly as bad in Atlanta as they are in Chicago, but I don’t know anyone who could successfully trek four miles in the blizzard conditions.
The fact that AJ did it just goes to show you that he’d do anything, risk everything for Mina. His love knows no bounds.
His celebration when she handled it without him and saved the patient was so heartwarming. No one has believed in her more than he has!
The surgery was stressful mainly because we formed such a connection with Mr. Garcia’s children and wanted him to be okay for their sake.
And thankfully, he was. After warming him, stopping the bleeding, and cooling him, he didn’t have any brain damage and was just happy to be reunited with his children.
The kids allowed us to see Dr. Bell in a new light. His hesitation to bond with them or be left alone with them was understandable since he never had kids of his own, but it was interesting to see the young boy only open up to him.
For someone who doesn’t deal with kids on a daily basis, he did a really great job.
Though he hopped on Nic’s surgery without a second thought if it meant he could get away from babysitting duty.
CEO of the hospital babysitting — I bet he didn’t see that coming when he said the skeleton crew has to assume various positions.
Kitt was, as always, a joy and continues to bring out the best version of Bell.
Nic overstepped a little when it came to her and Conrad’s patient Donna.
While she knew Donna was eager to see Bob, her one true love from thirty years ago, her desire didn’t overwriter her explicit DNR.
When Donna suffered a strangulated hernia, she shouldn’t have pushed for surgery, and she shouldn’t have gone above Conrad to convince Bell.
When she saw Bell blatantly ignoring the patient’s DNR wishes simply to save a life on his OR table, she knew that she screwed up.
Thankfully, Donna was a forgiving patient who knew that Nic did what she thought was best.
But imagine if she wasn’t. That’s a lawsuit waiting to happen.
What makes Nic a great doctor though is that she always goes with her gut even if it isn’t telling her to do things by the book.
If Nic hadn’t vouched for Donna, we would have never seen Donna tell Bob to ‘go to hell.’
I mean seriously, if I’m ever on our deathbed, I want the energy Donna has. What a firecracker. What an inspiration how life should be lived and how death should be handled.
She can now die peacefully knowing she got Bob back for breaking her heart. What a badass woman!
Nic was also dealing with Jessie, who was in kidney failure and on dialysis.
Alec was taking care of Jessie, which is fine, but also felt like he was trying to prove something to Nic.
It didn’t take long before both Jessie and Conrad caught onto Alec’s feelings for Nic.
Nic denied feeling anything back to both of them, but I’m not so sure this storyline’s going to have an innocent ending considering the teaser addressed the seemingly random fight between Conrad and Nic a few episodes.
The couple seemed to ignore their problems temporarily, but like Nic said towards the end of the episode, there’s a pattern that keeps happening over and over again.
They’re going to have to talk things through eventually.
If Nic isn’t ready for the next step with Conrad, maybe they shouldn’t be together.
Alec is just waiting for things to fall apart, which bothers me. I fear that Nic will also rebound with Alec, and I can’t bear to watch that either.
I’m also afraid that Jessie isn’t going to survive this time around which will crush Nic, cause her to finally lose control and spiral.
As for Pravesh, the student became the teacher after he took a med student under his wing to guide him through his first death declaration.
It feels like it was only yesterday that he was looking for guidance from Conrad and now, he’s imparting his wisdom on bright and doe-eyed students who may one day have a good career at Chastain.
As long as that student stops declaring patients dead in front of their family members before they are actually dead.
What did you think of tonight’s episode of The Resident?
It was very case-of-the-week focused and didn’t really address Mina getting dumped, The Raptor finding out about her ended relationship, the return of Nic’s father or Pravesh moving on from Julian.
But all in all, it made for some emotionally compelling television. And sometimes, that’s all we need.

‘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!
