Trama, Sinossi Episodio
Il dottor Scott e' in ritardo per il turno di notte. Nella fretta di giungere all'ospedale, non rispetta un segnale di stop e causa un grave incidente in cui rimane coinvolto Malik, un giovane di colore. Giunto in ospedale, Scott e' deciso ad operare Malik ma il padre del ragazzo gli intima di restare lontano da suo figlio. Sebbene Scott riesca a convincerlo a dargli il permesso di operarlo, deve prima superare un test tossicologico per provare alla Polizia che al momento dell'incidente non era ne' drogato ne' ubriaco.
Sinossi originale: TC is still riding his motorcycle, and while Jordan is trying to make the best of it, Gwen has had enough of his selfishness. He's going to be a dad and needs to stop putting his life at risk. TC is also stressing out. He confides in Drew that despite going to therapy, he's worried he's not improving fast enough since his PTSD breakdown. His life is about to change dramatically, and he wants to make sure he's the best man he can be. The shift begins with a rodeo arena concession stand collapse, sending TC and Drew to the chaotic scene to handle victims. There, they meet Lindsay, who has a deep gash in her leg, but is more concerned with her boyfriend Shane, who is trapped under the tangled metal. As TC goes to help the rodeo cowboy, suddenly the metal truss, precariously suspended by cables, gives out, and a sharp piece of metal plummets to the ground, stopping mere centimeters from TC's neck. TC takes a deep breath - that was a close one! Back at the hospital, as Drew and Jordan tend to Shane's injuries, the talkative cowboy reveals TC's close call. Jordan is livid and demands more information from Drew, who tries to cover for TC and play it off. Shane is improving, but they can't seem to get his heartrate down. Jordan gets more information out of Lindsay, who explains Shane used to be an alcoholic but quit a few years ago. Lindsay talks about the stress of loving someone who risks his life on a daily basis, and says she wasn't dumb enough to get knocked up by a man who couldn't think past his next bull ride. Jordan takes the conversation to heart - is she crazy for having TC's baby? Later, Jordan spots Shane out of bed, wearing a lab coat and pretending to be a doctor. She and Drew get him back to his room, but on the way he starts puking blood. Shane's heart isn't pumping enough blood, and he's making up stories about himself. Jordan asks Lindsay about his diet and learns Shane only eats rice and shrimp... that's it. Finally Jordan puts it together - Shane has a vitamin deficiency that's been messing with his heart. The good news is it's reversible with a better diet and no alcohol. Now that he's the new charge nurse, Kenny wants to do a ride-along with Gwen to experience what happens to patients before they reach the ER. So the couple heads out to a car crash, only to find the driver who caused the collision is Scott. The other driver is a teenage boy named Malik, whose father Brandon is screaming to have Scott arrested. Gwen manages to calm the dad down long enough to get the severely injured Malik into the ambulance. A bleeding Scott demands to treat Malik, but Topher won't let him - he needs to be checked out, and the police want to ask him questions and run a drug test. The family is also refusing to let Scott anywhere near their son. So TC and Topher start operating, but Malik is touch-and-go; he really needs Scott. On the way back to the ER, Gwen and Kenny start talking about past relationships, but Gwen quickly clams up. Kenny presses, but it's clear Gwen's hiding something from her past. Meanwhile, Scott confronts Malik's dad and begs him to let him operate. Malik's lung is severely injured and a number of his ribs are detached, and there's no one in this hospital who can do the surgery like Scott. Brandon is pissed but finally agrees, demanding that Scott fix his boy. Meanwhile, the police have arrived to drug-test Scott and maybe even arrest him for reckless driving. Ragosa holds them off as long as he can to allow time for Scott to operate. Scott begs for more time to finish the procedure, but after a video surfaces of him running a red light, Scott has no choice but to go with the cops. He takes the drug test, but the results will take an hour to come back, and Malik doesn't have an hour. So Jordan pulls Scott aside and makes him swear he didn't have a drink or take any drugs. Scott promises he hasn't had a sip of alcohol in years, so Jordan agrees to sign off on the test results before they are actually back. She's going out on a limb for him because she trusts him. And she's right to - Scott's results are clean. Scott races back to the OR and gets there just in time. Malik is coding, but Scott manages to save him. He goes to check up on Malik in recovery and everything seems to be going well... until Scott realizes he can't move his right arm or his legs. Malik is partially paralyzed. When Malik coded, part of his spinal cord died and there was nothing Scott could do about it. Scott is devastated - he ruined this boy's life. As the shift wraps up, Topher drives a distraught Scott home, while Jordan tells TC how proud she is of all his progress. When Jordan walks away, TC finishes closing up his locker, opening a little box containing an engagement ring. He puts it back in the locker and smiles to himself...
