Another week of extreme cases and brave faces. This week we get to see Rabbit go down the rabbit hole farther with his PTDS when he gets physically ill in the chopper on the way to the hospital right in front of a young women patient. About the same time Tyler passes out when he is forced to help a man whose arm has been severed in a street construction accident.
Cameron and Tyler respond to a restaurant fire and find a group of young women who are being used as prostitutes locked in the basement of the restaurant that had been on fire. Cameron convinces one to go with him and gets her to testify against the people responsible with the promise of staying in the US and protection from those bad people.
In the supreme moment of this episode we see Nancy who obviously is a highly skilled and competent MD forced to do surgery on a patient who doesn't have time to make it to the hospital. Dr. Saviano talks her thru the procedure and then berates her later because as he puts it to para phrase, "There are probably only five surgeons on the West coast who could have performed the surgery you did today under those circumstances. You're wasting your skill set." In this case Glen passes the test of assisting her with flying colors.
Being upset, Nancy finally takes Glen up on that drink, but in the end Glen's big mouth blows it for him with Nancy and she still hasn't slept with him.
All of this razzle dazzle is getting a little old. The amazing stories and big disasters get to be a little much after a while. We get to see some great stories and a show of great bravery and courage, but basically each episode is much like the last. The medics angst, their abusive behavior, and the people that live and die. I don't see this show surviving not because it isn't well acted or written, but because it is too repetitive for its own good. The ratings are supporting my theories. Thanks for reading...
