Poor Claire, her first surgery as lead, and then that ending. So sad.
this show is good! the episode 45-Degree Angle was good Shaun gets his first surgery as lead and things don't go to well! the nurse was right in filing the complaint as Shaun made the mistake and was wrong in not apologizing to the nurse he came across as arrogant.
The the pregnant woman with cancer was so sad how that ended!
I don't think Shaun is going to make it as a surgeon. If things don't go the way he wants (needs), he just can't control his reactions. Sorry to say, but right now I personally would not want him as lead surgeon. As part of the surgical team, no problem!
On the up side, seeing and diagnosing and figuring out how to get the surgery done, he's amazing!
Also, wasn't that the same nurse that questioned his relationship with Carly and threw his concentration off? I wonder if she is in place to deliberately get him riled up?
Debbie used to be a nurse?? I didn't know that, I wonder how she ended up at a coffee bar? I don't think her working for Glassman is going to be good for their relationship?
I enjoy the bits with Dr. Lim, and at the end, with her just snuggling quietly up to Melendez was perfect!
I enjoyed this week's episode!
the poor kid with eye cancer was so sad! *cried*
Clair is going down a dark path, Debbie is getting annoying don't like the way she's with Glassman, and everything has to be about her.
The way Melendez tried to blame Lim for the death of that pregnant woman so hurtful to watch. I think those two should break up.
what an emotional episode! poor Shawn!
It sure wasn't a warm fuzzy farewell! :(
It was a good thing that Leah was there. I really enjoy seeing her, and now I kinda hope she will bel involved in Shauns's life, as a friend-not as a girlfriend. But, I wonder if Carly is going to find out that Shaun allowed Leah in so close?
Also, it was nice to see Glassman there for him as well, like he always was at the beginning of the show. And he still get's irritated with Leah and her spur of the moment ideas!!
Finally!! Claire is getting some professional help!! I was just about ready to take a drive and kick her ass myself! LOL
glad to see at the end he choose Carly. I like Lea but she's too wild for Shaun, I wonder how she's going to react to the fact that she has to find a new home?
The addicted woman story was so dramatic! It's only possible in TV land! LOL!
I don't think it is fair that Carly made him choose. He has a limited circle of friends, and Leah plays a big part in that small circle.
In some ways Carly is good for him, pushing him to try things outside of his comfort zone, but this? This is just wrong!! I've lost a lot of respect for her, and I wouldn't blame Shaun for resenting her and eventually walking away!
Also, Carly should have known better than to have that conversation at work? But, I guess if she hadn't we wouldn't have gotten that wonderful Glassman/Shaun scene!
I did love it when Shaun asked Andrews for advice. The look on Andrews face, just for that second when he thought he was better than Glassman! ROFL
BTW, is Lim gone off job hunting at a different hospital?
And the addict having leg/knee surgery reminded me of another surgery on another show? Except this one turned down all meds.
love it when Shaun asked Andrews for advice! yes maybe Carly shouldn't have asked to not live with Leah but on the other hand she's his girlfriend and him living with another woman is weird.
I can understand where she's coming from, don't you?
Not at all.
She knows that Shaun has issues. But she is all about 'trust' and 'honesty' and 'communication'. And, if we know nothing else about Shaun, we know that he DOES NOT know how to keep a secret or lie. He communicated with honesty and trust and she retaliated in a nasty way.
She is being selfish, and trying to mold him into the boyfriend she wants, not the boyfriend that he is. She, a lot of the time, comes across as frustrated with him, not happy with how he relates to her in their relationship. This is not going to change!!
I can see why he is stressed around her, she stresses me out and I'm just sittin' here on my sofa! LOL
true, you make a good point!
I was so glad to see that the storyline with shawn and carly has finaly ended!! YAY! it wasn't fun anymore and became so annoying!
hopefully they can finally move on.
I agree! It was too much personal, not enough doctoring!
Can you believe that Reznick wasn't given a reprimand for trying to distract Shaun in the middle of that sugery??!!! Granted, Lim finally told her to shut up, but still!
I wonder when her health problem is going to be exposed?
I did enjoy the young patient that was using sign language. His relationship with the parents made me smile, there was respect, even though he was young!
My favorite line of the night was from Park - it's better to feed down than to kiss up! That was just oo funny!!! LOL
Reznick health problem it's getting on my nerves! I think Lim is suspecting something is up with Reznick as she clearly told her that in the locker room.
Park - it's better to feed down than to kiss up! was perfect! and I agree too! don't you?
Wasn't it just yesterday that Melendez and Lim were together??? I was really hoping that they wouldn't go there again with him and Claire. It would have been a nice change to actually see them together as friends/ mentor/ student without crossing over into a 'secret' relationship?
I did enjoy Park and Shaun going undercover sleuthing, and the young student case that Morgan and Claire were working on.
The Lim and young child story had me shaking my head. At first I thought it was a hallucination and that she was having a medical issue, and by the end I am still not sure what the point of that story was?
For Shaun to do the autopsy, after the hospital saying no, and after the only living relative saying no...would that not be enough for him and Carly to be knee deep in trouble?? Yeah, I know...TV land LOL
I don't understand why Shaun thought that this time would be any different than the first time he told her that he wanted to be her boyfriend? Leah shut him down quick before, and she should have done the same this time. I don't think it's a simple as 'he has autism' but, the way she left the apartment there's an opening for this to happen all over again?
'secret' relationship is purely platonic for now anyway I hope it stays that way! I think when they were bowling and she tells him how they have to hide their secret platonic relationship was a way of closing that storyline.
The student case was so creepy! imagine going through that! but it was interesting.
I didn't get the Lim and kid thing either...maybe it will be linked with something in the future episodes?
Leah and shaun I think Leah is falling in love with him for real this time but she's afraid she's not equipt.
I think you are right about Leah having deep feelings for Shaun. The thing I like about her is that she has no boundaries, no filter...she sees it, she says it! I just hope this doesn't mean she is leaving again?
I think we are getting close to the season finale of this show!
I think there's still hope for two of them ending up together.
Nope, I think Leah was clear that she has no romantic interest in him. She had to be blunt to the point of rudeness, which I didn't want to see, but that had to be done. Watching him try to 'fix' the problems to have a relationship with her is exhausting! I couldn't imagine living with his expectations on a daily basis. Kudos to all those parents that are raising or have raised autistic/aspergers syndrome kids!!
I just hope that they remain friends since she works for Glassman?
Whew, Claire is on a real date...and not with Melendez! Altho, I thought I saw a glimpse of jealousy from him over that hug? It was also nice to see Claire and Shaun working together. She has a calming effect on him? That young mom was lucky to have Shaun on her case!!
It seems that organ donation is the focus of this month's medical dramas? I really felt for that poor kid trying to save his mentor. That would have been a hard call to make, but I think Lin made the right call. There are long lasting medical issues that follow after a donation, and he has a long life ahead.
who's the guy Clair went out on the date? I don't remember him....
it's good to see she's getting back to being herself again.
I too agree with the decision Lin made, the boy was just 16 and the mentor wasn't exactly healthy, the also had kidney problems....come to think of it both of them were not very healthy!
I liked the way Leah confronted Shaun head on! I think he wants to have a romantic relationship at all costs because Leah challenges Shaun daily, while Carly just loved him for him, and was more accommodating and submissive. Don't you think so?
I don't remember exactly when it happened, but Claire had a friend from college that came in with ovarian cancer, married to Dash. She was in extreme pain, and terminal. Claire talked the team into removing the tumor, which increased her life another few months? She made Claire promise to go on a date with Dash, she wanted someone for him after she was gone. From what I remember, they had an awkward date but there was also chemistry.
now that you mention it I do remember! thanks :)
yeah they went on the first date when she was still alive.
wow! that was so emotional!
Somebody better get Shaun into therapy/anger management! Considering he basically raised himself, I can see where he would have a hard time with being told he can't do/have something. I question if he should be in that job. When he's calm he is amazing, but when he is disturbed....WOW!
Interesting cases this week! I am really liking Lin more and more!
And Melendez less and less...Claire makes him a better person?? WTH!!
Shaun went crazy there with Leah, but the good thing he didn't loose control! that says a lot.
He got closure by tell her how he felt now he can move on! I hope now that he single there will be less personal stories about him and more about him being a doctor! I am getting a bit annoyed with the sex life of his.
All the case were interesting, I agree I too like Lin and Melendez less! that whole speech about how Claire makes him a better surgeon and person was out of line, and sending her the wrong message.
Now she thinks she's in love with him!
He should have kept it professional since the start.
I agree with Glasman that it's a stupid idea for Morgan gets her hand surgery, she should just change profession.
Morgan is so smart, she would be great at anything she would choose to do. From what I understood about the surgery that once it's done the joints of her fingers will continue to deteriorate more? To me, it's not up to her to decide that she can get right back into the OR and be putting innocent people at risk because she isn't having a good day with her illness?! Lin gave her that last surgery as a kindness to her, I don't think she realized that Morgan has already had issues in the OR?
this is back, with the pandemic! hope it doesn't last longer that two parts.
I know it's a hospital drama but I'd rather see other stories that be reminded of the horrible situation we're all in.
8 months ago we were both sick of Shaun's sex life..and look where the show went again! That best be the end of it!! LOL
It was disturbing to watch the beginning of the pandemic, and the 'behind the scenes' look at how the medical staff was blindsided by it. I never once thought of the massive amount of quarantine for personal belongings!
They did a good job showing the extremes of personal lives. The Glassman's sheltering in place and feeling the stress of 24/7, and others staying apart to protect their loved ones.
I did cheer for Lin when she told that girl in the elevator to put her mask on! LOL
I wonder if Park will still move back with his family or stay? Life with Shaun won't be easy!
Also, weeks after the pandemn hit the staff and patients in the 'non-covid' areas with no masks? Even here the minute you walked up to the doors of the hospital, no matter where you were headed, it was mandatory masks!
I live in a small city, population under 20,000 and we currently have 16 cases. For the longest time we were under 10, all recovered, but now with more people travelling again our numbers will likely continue to rise.
The worst is the spread of rumours. Here, a worker in a senior home tested positive, and suddenly on the news we had an outbreak!. Reality was, she hadn't been at work, nobody, including the co-workers, was exposed! Because of mis-information, the home went on lock down and it took 3 days before family could resume their visits to loved ones!
yep Shawn likes SEX! ...WE GET IT ENOUGH!!!! LOL *eyes roll*
Also t found it wierd that there was a non-covid part of the hospital were noone wore a mask, here too you haave to wear a mask when entering a hospital....guess they needed that to show that there are patients asintomatic to deal with next week.
It wasn't a bad episode, but not a great one either.
glad to see that it went back to normal episodes, I liked the speech he gave at the beginning of the episode.
the episode was nice.
I am very much okay with them moving away from the Covid-centric stories, but I also expected to see or hear at least some little reference to the pandemic. It was a complete 360 from this episode to the previous one!!
Having Freddie Highmore speak before the episode, and stress that Covid social distancing and behaving responisibly is still very much high priority, I love his British accent, it definitely caught my attention!
So, do we have all the sexual orientations, genders and races covered with the addition of the new residents? Not sure who they went with in the end, I just hope none of them are too quirky!! I thought that the newbie overstepping with her view of the breast surgery should have gotten her kicked off the case! For a 17year old she stood up for herself really well.
I'm glad they did a 360 with the covid, these days more than ever tv shows need to detract and entertain people from all the horror that we are in.
