Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!
Last week, The Resident returned for its third season on FOX. In the opening moments, we learned that it was Nic’s sister Jessie who didn’t survive the surgery, while her father did. Nic was taking the loss hard, and even though it had been a month, Nic was still not ready to scatter to her sister’s ashes and say goodbye. Mina tried to convince Nic to come back to work, letting her know that Red Rock Mountain Medical had cut the funding for her free clinic – this conglomerate that purchased Chastain Park only cares about the bottom line and profits over patients.
Back at the hospital, a young patient had run away at the sight of a needle, and Conrad tracked him to the basement. However, there was a gas leak and the proton beam accelerator exploded, sending shrapnel into Conrad and particle physicist Annie. While treating their injuries, the doctors discovered that Annie had Stage 4 cancer, which she was determined to fight. There was some suspicion that the explosion might not have been an accident and that someone at Red Rock may have wanted to eliminate the costly machinery that was hardly being utilized, in favor of the insurance payout.
Meanwhile, Kit got wind that Red Rock was thinking of not renewing her contract due to her low billing rate of just $2M per year. However, they were excited to bring in rock star neurosurgeon Barrett Cain, with his $80M per year in billings. Plus, last season’s miracle triple transplant patient, Eloise, was now an intern at the hospital but must take extreme precautions when seeing sick patients due to her cystic fibrosis.
The series is back in full form, and the new staff shake-ups at the hospital should make for some interesting new dynamics this season. It seems so long ago that we were holding our breath every time that Dr. Bell entered the operating room. Now it seems like he should be the least of the patients’ concerns – they should be more worried about the hospital administrators who see them as a number and whose sole goal is to maximize profits, even at the expense of their needs.
On tonight’s episode, “Flesh of My Flesh,” intending to garner publicity for the hospital, Cain tries to recruit Bell and Kit on a dangerous surgery; the Raptor develops an emotional attachment to a patient; Mina’s friend arrives with shocking news.
Find out what Bell and Kit decide about the surgery tonight on FOX at 8/7c.
