In the first episode of a double feature event, one doctor will learn from one patient that saving lives isn’t the most important thing.
In the first episode of a double feature event, one doctor will learn from one patient that saving lives isn’t the most important thing.
Shannon rides with the paramedics to a call of an overdose college student. After hearing what the story of him was just gave her a sick reason not to feel bad for him. As they take the guy in the ambulance someone else is in need of help and she goes while the paramedics head off.
 Another student had jumped off the second floor, bleeding and with a broken bone sticking out of her leg. TC gets there and takes them back to Memorial. As soon as Scott sees her, they take her to the OR. The student’s friend comes back with her purse and hands it to TC and finds a bottle of pills. After looking it up the drug there’s a side effect that causes suicide thoughts. That pissed him off to talk to the pharmaceutical rep, Jessica Sanders, who happens to be in the hospital to give Scott the heart veil that helps heart patients recover in half the time.
He should probably waited til talking with the patient before going after her because after a complication (puffing up like a balloon), he talked to her about the pills. She told him that she hadn’t taken any and she jumped off because she was just stressed out from college work. Later, after Sanders’ been trying to sucker Topher and Jordan to switch drug reps to her company, TC apologies to her on the spot. And there might be something with the way they looked at each other.
But the main part of this episode was about Jordan, who takes care of a cancer patient. The patient, has spent most of her helping others and studying, never been on a date or so. When Jordan tries to help her, she doesn’t want any help but to die with dignity. Of course, Jordan can’t take that and tries to get her to try a trail that Sanders’ company had, but she tells her that she’ll do it unless Jordan talks to her about her.
Jordan opens up about her life, how after her dad had died, she closes relationships and focus work more and more. After opening up to her, Jordan talks to Sanders and she’s got the trail, but soon her patient takes a turn for the worst. Jordan tries to save her but when Topher comes in telling her that she’s a DNR and the patient telling her to let her die, Jordan breaks down in tears and makes her comfortable with pain meds and she passes away.
Other things in this episode, dealt with a lot of humor from Sanders getting Topher the deal of a lifetime, a paid vacation away from his mother and kids. But also Drew and Kenny at Syd’s kid karate tournament, for which got some weird looks from other parents as they cheered her on. And not to mention that Drew fell on her when showing her a move after a win and had broken her arm.
I thought it was a really good episode. I enjoyed Jordan’s storyline in this one a lot more. She cares for her patients and tries to save them all but for this one she takes it very hard that she couldn’t save a patient. It’s Flint’s best performance. I also enjoyed the Kenny and Drew Odd Couple moment with Syd’s daughter. That had me laughing and smiling.
