  • Angela Bassett arrives as the new chief and the ER is under lockdown when a man brings ricin in to the ER.

    This was a good episode by all means, but the storyline was one that was used before. If you remember all the way back to the Season 8 finale, Lockdown, some staff members were quarantined because of a smallpox outbreak. This was somewhat similar, but a man brought in ricin to the ER and Gates was with the new interns when the accident happened. We meet the new interns this episode and they are just like any other intern that has come to County General: naive, scared and eager to learn. We also meet Dr. Cate Banfield, played by the incompriable Angela Bassett! She is a tough-as-nails, no-nonsense doctor who has a hidden past but we didn't get to get much into that this episode. Morris and her immediately clash because he is still in pain from losing Pratt. Her and Morris will no doubtedly butt heads more this final season, but they came to an understanding. This episode was a "get to know you" kind of episode, not much really happened. Next week...hold your's Abby's last episode! So sad!
