Trama, Sinossi Episodio
TC ritorna all'ospedale dopo la sua breve sospensione e deve occuparsi del caso di una donna a cui il marito ha sparato accidentalmente. Purtroppo TC niente puo' fare per salvarla e deve dichiararla morta. Ragosa inizia il suo nuovo lavoro di assistente medico, mentre Topher e Jordan si contendono il suo vecchio posto. Kenny aiuta una stella del football liceale ad affrontare il fatto che il suo infortunio gli impedira' di giocare ancora. Il rapporto fra Rich e Drew non attraversa un buon momento: Drew, infatti, ha difficolta' a fissare un appuntamento con lo specialista che deve prescrivere una protesi a Rich.
Sinossi originale: The night begins with Topher stressing that Jordan may want her job back. His wife wants to stay home with the kids, so they could really use the extra money. Perhaps Topher likes being boss so much because he gets to torment Ragosa with endless paperwork and pointless errands. His latest is sending him on a wild goose chase for a medical device that doesn't exist. He even gets the whole staff in on the joke. Luckily for Topher, Jordan isn't interested in her old job, so he's in the clear. Sorry, Ragosa, you'd better get used to being hazed! Wait, why is Drew at work on his day off? The former army medic needed a breather from his boyfriend Rick, so he signed up for vet duty. Since his leg was amputated, Rick's been nothing but negative, and Drew is nearly at his breaking point. He's especially frustrated that Rick's VA doc won't call him back to set an appointment. Drew's a fixer and he just can't fix this situation for Rick. He's now concocting crazy plans to show up at the VA doctor's house in the middle of the night, or call him and pretend his kid was in an accident. Luckily, Kenny talks him out of both bad ideas, and advises him to take care of himself first, or he can't be there for Rick. Suddenly a rancher bursts into the ER carrying his bloody wife, Melissa, in his arms. He accidentally shot her when he heard a noise in his barn and thought it was cattle thieves. TC does his best, but even with Paul and Jordan's help, he can't save Melissa. He doesn't take it well - TC hasn't lost anyone in a long time. But before he can sulk for too long, he gets a call from Gwen about a high school ranch party gone awry. Tons of kids are injured, including a patient the paramedics can't move, so TC heads to the site. There, he finds a teenager named Brian impaled on a barbed-wire fence, surrounded by drunk and injured kids. Apparently when the party got busted, two kids piled on an ATV and crashed trying to outrun the cops, launching one of them into a fence. TC and Gwen get to work untangling Brian's intestines from the barbed wire while the driver, his football pal Terrence, looks on, devastated. The two of them were out celebrating getting football scholarships and now Terrence has a dislocated shoulder and Brian might never play ball again. TC and Gwen manage to detach Brian from the fence, but Brian can't hold off till the hospital - TC will have to start surgery from the ambulance. Back at the ER, Kenny catches up to Krista in the hall and asks why she left so early that morning. She explains she had to run back to her place to get gym clothes, prompting Kenny to offer her a drawer at his place. "A drawer is never just a drawer," Krista responds, walking off to surgery and leaving Kenny feeling foolish. As soon as the ambulance reaches the ER, Joey and Krista take over and perform bowel surgery on Brian. During the operation, the pair grows closer, with Joey learning Krista wanted to become a doctor ever since she lost her mother to breast cancer, and Krista learning Joey used to be an army doc. Throughout the shift it becomes increasingly clear something's brewing between these two... but what about Kenny? Meanwhile, TC and Topher fix Terrence's shoulder, but not longer after, Terrence pukes and collapses. Turns out the star football player has second-impact syndrome from not fully recovering from a concussion and then getting hit again. Drew and TC drill a hole in his brain to let the blood out, but he'll need neurosurgery. Sadly, while Brian will make a full recovery, Terrence is devastated to learn he'll never play football again. Kenny tries talking to him - he was once a football star as well, until a fractured back took him out. While recuperating in the hospital, it was the nurses who took care of him and taught him to walk again, not the doctors. The injury turned out to be the best thing that ever happened to him because that's how he realized he wanted to be a nurse. Across the ER, a Hispanic beauty queen, decked out in her evening gown and sash, stumbles through the doors and collapses. Sandra's blood pressure is off the charts, but Jordan can't figure out why. Could she have taken diet pills or diuretics for the pageant? Jordan keeps changing her medicine, but can't figure out why Sandra's heart rate won't stop climbing. Suddenly Jordan notices Sandra's chest is soaked in blood, so she and TC quickly cut away her dress to find blood oozing out of two hatchet-job breast implants... and something sliding out of the sutures. Bags of cocaine! The cocaine has been leaking into her system, explaining the crazy vitals. Once the cocaine baggies are removed, Sandra starts stabilizing. Jordan explains she'll have to speak with police after the cosmetic surgeon repairs her sutures, but before she can be operated on, she disappears. Jordan finds her collapsed in a bloody heap and learns it was her boyfriend who put her up to the drug trafficking. It's the end of a long night, and Krista and Kenny are heading out when Drew races over, nearly knocking Krista over with a bear hug. She pulled some strings with a guy she went to med school with and got Rick a doctor's appointment. Drew couldn't be more relieved. Unfortunately, there's no relief for TC, who holes up at his favorite bar to quietly obsess over losing the rancher's wife that night.
