The Night Shift (S04E07) "Keep the Faith"

If there was one word to discribe this week’s episode of The Night Shift, it would have to be honorable. That’s the first word that pops into my head after just watching it.
“Keep the Faith” is a special episode of the medical drama that really shows the hearts and souls of those that have and are serviing in the US miltary. The story starts with the funneral of Mac after he died from an attack from a trouble solider in the previous episode.
A protest breaks out into a fight at the funneral, which has a few people coming into the ER with the doctors that along fought against. One that was attacked happens to be someone from Drew’s past and it was a sure engaging to watch as this former soilder was running for office. There was a former P.O.W. that cames in with a headwound, asking for the doctors to take out the piece of shrapnel in his head.
There were many emotional moments throughout the episode, mostly watching the P.O.W. soilder dealing with PTSD to a momnet when he was telling Scott, Paul and Shannon about the triadition of how to remember those that lost their lives during a meal.
Another moment was when Drew steps up helps another former soilder photographer on getting a job with the senator, for a free. Her story was emotionally powerful too.
This episode really does carry a massive heart of emotion. It’s example of why we should give back to those that protect us the suppor they need. The writing of this episode was so beautifully done and even the performances from the cast and guest stars as well. Overall, I give this episode a 9/10.
You can catch The Night Shift Thursday nights at 10/9c on NBC.
