Pravesh, Pravesh, Pravesh.

You better call off that wedding as soon as possible.

The Resident has been building up the romantic tension between Pravesh and Julian for a few episodes now and they finally gave into temptation shortly after Pravesh found out Priya got a job off in San Francisco.

Instead of talking it out with fiancee, Pravesh decided to just cheat on her.

And though he and Julian both agreed that the kiss meant nothing, emotional cheating was a far was culprit here than the physical deed.

Pravesh is totally smitten with Julian and vice-versa.

We saw it when she offered to be a Beta tester for his watch prototype. He could have put an end to the flirtation right then and there by saying Priya was his first Beta tester but he went along with it because he enjoyed it.

They were already in the red zone when he decided to do the wedding dance with her at the karaoke bar, however, they crossed into the danger zone when they went in for the slow dance.

Everyone around them could feel the sexual tension. Way to not keep things a secret!

He cannot in good faith go through with marrying Priya.

Also, how fun was it for all of the doctors to just let loose and have fun? I thoroughly enjoyed watching every single one of them dance it out, Bollywood style.

This storyline is rather unfortunate because as I’ve said before, it’s completely out of character for Pravesh who was head over heels for his girl.

While he was conducting a trial run on his health watch, Conrad and Nic dealt with a messy clinical trial at  Chastain.

Nic was disappointed to find out her sister Jess joined a trial to make a few bucks and her disappointment only escalated when the side-effects from the clinical trial drug became deadly.

John, Jess’ rehab friend, was the first to pass from the trial.

And still, then, Kisic insisted it was Chastain’s fault for not being up to the health code.

Kisic had the nerve to argue with Conrad saying that the trial wasn’t to blame for all the patient’s getting sick, it was actually an outbreak of Sepsis.

I know Conrad and Nic proved him wrong but you damn well know a lawsuit is coming.

However, this time, it seems like Bell is going to have their backs because he also accused Kisic of manslaughter via a clinical trial.

We actually saw an ounce of humanity and emotion on Bell’s side when he had to deliver the news of John’s death to his wife and child — the reason John was in the trial in the first place as he was trying to make an extra few bucks to support the family.

It turns out, Bell is capable of thinking about feelings over money. It was a nice change of pace.

Nic’s relationship with her sister is complicated, but I hope that Jess realizes how lucky she is to have someone like Nic around and stops making poor life decisions.

Mina and Austin are finally on the same page. He’s always given her a hard time but finally, he was able to appreciate just how irreplaceable and badass she is.

I can totally see their writings taking their relationship down the romantic path, but I hope they don’t.

Sometimes, relationships work better when they are platonic and any romance would ruin the hilarious banter these two have going for them.

Voss blends with their dynamic seamlessly because she’s a spitfire who isn’t afraid to say what she’s thinking.

That kind of courage comes with age and many years of experience in a field.

She wasn’t afraid to call Bell out for being a good person but also “a bastard” on occasion. That’s what Bell needs in his life — someone to keep it real with him.

Do you see romance on the horizon for these two?

The Resident always does a really great job at following through on storylines, but this episode was so loaded with character development, they didn’t really get to address the cliffhangers.

What’s going on with Nic’s panic attacks? Will she tell Conrad about them? What’s going on with Conrad’s nightmares?

Where is Conrad’s dad? What’s happening with Bell’s multi-million dollar deal with Qua Vadis?

Leave your thoughts below and we’ll catch you in two weeks Residents!

‘The Resident’ Season 4 Will Tackle the Coronavirus Pandemic

Published

The Resident Last Shot Review

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.

QUIZ: Which ‘The Resident’ Doctor Is Your Soulmate?

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. 

Additionally, FOX’s fall 2020 lineup is moving ahead without the medical drama, as it is being held till 2021.

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 Reverse Cinderella Recap

The Resident has a pulse! 

Fox has renewed the beloved medical drama for a fourth season! 

https://twitter.com/ResidentFOX/status/1262820321872220162?s=20

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. 

The Resident Season Finale Review: Will Conrad Accept Kim’s Offer (3×20)

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. 

Are you thrilled The Resident was renewed for season 4?
