Trama, Sinossi Episodio
Jordan e TC sembrano consolidare il loro rapporto affettivo. Il dottor Chavez coltiva un buon rapporto col personale del turno di notte e attira le attenzioni di Krista, il che lo rende un rivale agli occhi di Kenny, che per lei ha un debole. Ragosa si applica con diligenza al suo nuovo compito di tirocinante e assume un ruolo decisivo facendo da interprete fra lo staff medico e una famiglia di immigrati avvelenata da pesticidi, riuscendo a salvare tutti.
Sinossi alternativa: The night shift begins with a major milestone: Jordan buys TC a key to her place! Okay, maybe she didn't buy it... it was the old one under her flowerpot, but still - this is huge, guys!! Okay, maybe not as huge as a base jumper crashing onto the windshield of a bus after his parachute failed to open, but you get the picture. On a more serious note, Will, the base jumper, has pretty severe injuries, so Joey and TC rush him to the OR. His girlfriend Kim arrives soon after, with Will's dog Max in tow. She's terrified and begs them to do whatever they can to save him, but the news only gets worse. When Joey and Krista open Will up, they find multiple metastasized cancerous masses in his abdomen. Apparently he had cancer a few years ago but is in remission, but before they can remove the masses, Topher rushes it and demands they stop operating immediately. Kim isn't Will's health proxy, his brother is. And will signed a Do Not Resuscitate Order three months earlier - he knew his cancer was back and didn't tell his girlfriend. Kim begs the doctors to save him, but they're legally bound to respect the patient's wishes, so she storms off, vowing to sue. While she's gone, Will suddenly starts to crash, and against orders, TC decides to intubate. Topher is furious but eventually acquiesces, helping his buddy keep the dying man alive a little longer. Gwen brings Joey some of Will's things found at the crash site, including a note for Kim indicating he didn't open his parachute on purpose. He wanted to die on his own terms, and TC should have let him. As Kim sits at Will's bedside, Joey joins her and tries to offer comfort. He reveals that his nine-year-old son spent the last few weeks of his life in a hospital battling cancer, and the hardest thing was realizing he was holding on for himself, not his son. His son was ready to let go. Joey then hands Kim the note from Will, adding that maybe Will chose his brother as his proxy so Kim wouldn't have to make such a hard decision. Kim knows she has to let Will go. As it turns out, she also has to let Max go, as her son is allergic. Luckily, TC has a solution, and at the end of the shift, he hands Max's leash to Jordan, who has bonded with the cute pup all night. First a key, now a dog? So much for taking it slowly... Drew bursts through the ER doors with a night janitor who was electrocuted in front of his wife and kids. Ragosa goes to speak with the man's wife, Maria, and children Roy and Isabella, and learns the kids help their parents clean offices at night. Ragosa bonds with the children, whose immigrant parents barely speak English. Suddenly, Isabella gasps for air - she can't breathe! Moments later, her brother starts puking uncontrollably, and not long after, their mother starts seizing. What is going on with this family?! The doctors wrack their brains, trying to find a diagnosis that explains all the family members' symptoms, but they just can't crack the case. Finally, Ragosa checks out their car, where he finds farming tools - pesticides! It turns out the family just moved into a farm's storage trailer where illegal pesticides are kept, but with a new place to live and the proper medicine, they'll be just fine. Across the ER, Paul and Jordan take care of Lorelei, a pretty coed who came in with her RA complaining of flu-like symptoms. Lorelei insists she just has an epic hangover, but when she tries to get up, she collapses to the floor. Upon examining her, Jordan thinks she has a gynecological infection and instructs a painfully awkward Paul to do a pelvic exam. While RA Kyle waits outside, Paul and Lorelei suffer through the uncomfortable situation, made only worse when Paul discovers a tampon lodged inside her. He also discovers a rash on the bottom of her feet and determines Lorelei has Toxic Shock Syndrome. While Lorelei is relieved the issue is treatable - as "Death by Tampon" would be mortifying - there's a bit of a complication: the lab finds semen on the tampon. Lorelei is horrified - she hasn't had sex in months - how could this have possibly happened?! Paul, getting more embarrassed by the minute, pulls Jordan in to speak with his Lorelei, who swear she's not lying. She does admit that she got drunk at a frat party the other night and took what she thought was molly. Everything after that is a blur. The tox screen comes back negative, but when Kyle returns to pick Lorelei up, the missing hours start flashing back to her: Kyle raped her! Suddenly, Paul snaps - he wants Kyle arrested, but they have no evidence of what he did. He confronts the RA in the waiting room, who claims the hookup was consensual, and when Kyle tries to leave, Paul tackles him, starting a huge fight. The other doctors pull the men apart, but when they find out why Paul attacked Kyle, they tell the litigious RA they didn't see anything. Meanwhile, unbeknownst to Drew, his boyfriend Rick has stopped by the ER because he sprained "his only ankle." He begs Krista not to tell Drew he's there, and Krista agrees to patch him up in secret. However, one of the nurses spills the beans when Krista calls in Joey to take a look at Rick's infected leg stump. When Drew asks Rick what happened, the former army captain admits he's miserable being unable to do even small things for himself, and especially hates that Drew has to care for him all the time. Rick's not the guy he used to be, and while he loves Drew, he doesn't love himself. As Drew chokes up, Rick tells him he's moving out. They're over. At the end of the shift, Kenny asks Krista to breakfast, but she declines in favor of a yoga session with Dr. Granola. Kenny's a nice guy, but he's been growing more suspicious of Krista and Joey's relationship by the day, and her flippant snub is just another red flag to him. Maybe he should join Drew, who's spending the morning drowning his sorrows at the bar...
