As everyone’s recovering from the loss of Conner and Ava; Med tackles it’s the biggest challenge yet, a power outage during a storm. Natalie returns but must take things easy but when a gunshot victim comes in and Lanik not only takes over the case but makes her take him up to surgery. But as she takes him up, the power goes out and she’s stuck in the elevator. Luckily for her, Casey happens to become to help and while he placed the tube for the guy to breathe, Natalie saved the guy just in time for the power to come back on.

Will takes on a case that leads to him thinking that it’s an infection due to not only his patient becomes ill but her two friends as well. With no power and the lab slowdown, Dr. Charles knows what it could be, mind over matter. He gave them a placebo and all is good.

Noah comes back and meets Dr. Marcel, who’s given me this Jimmy Smits meets George Clooney vibe. The two hits it off and when treating a patient that needs heart surgery but when the power goes off it turns into a MASH type of atmosphere but in the end, they saved their patient.

Also, Maggie will be battling her will after getting her first chemo treatment. Ethan and April test a promising medical student during all of the chaos in the ED, but you would think that the kid would be excited after but he wasn’t.

“We’re Lost in the Dark” was a very good and exciting second episode with a good solid story plot. I very much enjoyed watching the introduction of Dr. Marcel, even though he was in the season premiere. It was in this episode that I got a bit more of who he is and I still see a bit of Jimmy Smits and George Clooney in this guy. I’m going to be so glued to Natalie and Will with what Phillip has done to them; plus I won’t be surprised if April and Ethan try to have a baby. Overall, I give this episode an 8.5/10.
