  • Episode Description
  • Roger and Eleanor are visiting Roger's old childhood friend Charlie Dorland, a famed painter, and his wife Nicole. Suddenly, Charlie suffers a seizure and is rushed to the hospital. Suzanne is in seventh heaven with her new boyfriend Jason Brody. Another couple is also very much in love: Evan and Sarah. They make love at the practice in nearly all the offices, but later they are unable to retrieve some of their personal items. Oh uh! What if anyone finds out? Sarah and Evan try to act very casual but they try a bit too hard. Besides, the others find it weird that they keep searching through all the furniture. Suzanne introduces Jason to Leanne. Later, Jason approaches Leanne after learning she often uses untraditional ways to cure patients. He wonders if she can help him cure Hepatitis C. Leanne is surprised to learn of Jason's condition and appalled when Jason says that Suzanne doesn't know. Roger tells Charlie that they've found much Cadmium in his blood. Charlie uses Cadmium in his paintings but Roger orders him to stop painting or else he'll die. Charlie is not happy to stop painting but is convinced by Nicole and Roger. Not long after, Charlie is rushed to the hospital again, and the doctors are unable to save him. It turns out he died from Cadmium poisoning. Roger is devastated but Eleanor is convinced that Nicole has something to do with it: she is now a very wealthy widow. Leanne goes to Tim and Sarah, wondering if she should tell Suzanne. They convince her to do so and make Suzanne take a test. To her horror, Suzanne learns the test is positive. Feeling totally cheated, she refuses to see Jason again. Roger finds out that the large dose of Cadmium in Charlie's body couldn't have come just from painting a picture. He confronts Nicole but she claims Charlie must have killed himself when he couldn't paint anymore. Leanne and Tim offer Suzanne support and she reconciles with Jason. Roger finds a mask Charlie put on while he painted and has it tested: it's sprayed with Cadmium. He gives it to the police and Nicole is arrested. At last she reveals her true face to Roger as she tells him the evidence is too vague and she'll get the best lawyers.moreless
