What an intense episode.
Pravesh got closer to solving Julian’s disappearance, Nic stopped enabling her sister and the Raptor’s “hands” performed nothing short of a miracle.
Nic’s storyline tied in closely with Dr. Hawkin’s and Kit’s patient, Eloise, a med student who needed a lung transplant.
Eloise’s donor, Lenny, turned out to be Jess’ friend from high school who had overdosed on opioids.
As the parents told Nic they’d ignored the signs that Jess was using again, Nic began to realize she’d been doing the same with her own sister, who arrived at Chastain a little too happy and was indifferent about being late for her job interview.
Sadly, when she arrived at the house, she found pills in Jess’ purse proving that she was using once again.
Jess tried to place the blame on Nic by saying that she was so overprotective, she needed to take the pills to deal with her.
At this point, Nic did something that was long overdue — she stopped being the enabler.
She told her sister that she was either going to rehab or she was getting out of the house. And though it was the hardest thing Nic has ever had to do, Jess needs that tough love if she’s ever going to get better.
Cleary, Nic’s overprotective worrying didn’t do anything for Jess because she figured her sister would always be there for her.
It’s only until she hits rock bottom that the wake-up call will hit. She’ll either voluntarily enter rehab and work on getting clean or she’ll overdose and end up like Lenny.
Nic, she’s stronger than she looks.
I was surprised to see her cuddled up with Conrad after their fight last week. Did they just kiss and make-up? Are they pretending none of that ever transpired?
I’m not complaining considering I never wanted them to break-up in the first place, but it was a weird thing to gloss over on the writers’ part.
Julian’s car was pulled out of some swamp and as we all guessed, her body was nowhere to be found.
Now, that doesn’t mean she’s still alive.
Gordon Page doesn’t seem like he’d leave any loose ends, which also leads me to believe that he’d have his goons displace Julian’s body so it would never be found.
And that, friends, would probably be worse torture for Pravesh than actually finding out she was murdered.
Pravesh began to put two-and-two together on this week’s episode, and after sneaking into Julian’s apartment and realizing the last person she spoke to worked for the FDA, he’s more convinced that Quo Vadis played a role in her disappearance.
It’s nice to see that someone cares enough to find out what happened to her.
With all the evidence stacked against Quo Vadis at this point — the defected heart valves, Bradley’s death as a result, the news that the last person Page did business with is dead — it seems Chastain’s employees might go after him.
It’s a good thing they all have a vested interest in taking Page down because after Bell’s call to remove the valves from his hospital shelves, Page will undoubtedly declare war and try to retaliate.
If only Bell could just pay off the debt he owes Page. Lesson learned.
It sure seems like Bell is making a comeback as a good guy and more importantly, good surgeon.
Even Kit is noticing and really liking what she seeing. Look, Bell’s bound to get a love interest sooner or later. If it’s going to be anyone, it may as well be the woman that brings out the best in him. Lord knows he needs that after all the bad seeds — cough Lane cough — he’s been with.
And lastly, that miracle of surgery.
Despite initial hesitation from the board, Chastain went ahead and performed, no, scratch that, they perfected, a triple surgery.
The odds weren’t in their favor but with such a brilliant team of surgeons, one could even say that best of the best, they managed to succeed with minor hiccups.
I got chills when the whole class watching the live stream cheered.
I’m hoping Eloise’s mother makes a full recovery for her selfless sacrifice. A mother’s love is unparalleled.
This whole storyline was proof that not every story has to have a tragic ending at Chastain.
They aren’t miracle workers but sometimes, luck is on their side.
Not only is the Raptor back on his feet, but his feelings for Mina aren’t going away anytime soon.
I know he’s giving her space and trying to let things fall into place, but he can’t keep ignoring this for much longer.
The way he looks at her makes me melt but she’s with Micah. The series has been focusing more on AJ, but we can’t forget that Micah is still there.
What do you think is going to happen?
Will Jess leave Nic alone for good? Will she go to rehab? How far will Page go to get revenge on Bell? And how will Chastain take Page down?

‘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.
Are you thrilled The Resident was renewed for season 4?
