The Resident 2×22: Light In Darkness

This episode was the episode for me that revealed a lot of true colors. The Resident 2×22 “Broker and Broker”, also led to a goodbye and some terrifying unknowns. For one, we really were enlightened to the harsh veracity of Alec’s (Miles Gaston Villanueva) line-crossing ways. Mina appears to be realizing the complications of her newfound feelings and possibly some of her past mistakes. Nic and Conrad, though apart, seem to still be walking in the same direction. Which is hopeful for all of us who still love Conic.

The Resident 2×20: One of the Most Important Episodes Yet

The Resident 2×20 “If Not Now, When?” is one of the best episodes I have seen on television. Ever. Manish Dayal wins my performance of the week for this chilling episode that shed light on senseless gun violence and the lack of standard of care in postpartum treatment. For such a heavy content episode, the writers still managed to update viewers on the failing health of Nic’s sister, Jessie (Julianna Guill) and on the somber status of CoNic.

The Resident 2×19 Review: A Storm Is Coming

The Resident 2×19 “Snowed In” takes place during a rare Atlanta blizzard. For many reasons, I was less interested and disengaged from this episode than the rest in this season. After so many episodes that have been intensely plot and character accelerating, even the backdrop of an intense southern blizzard couldn’t carry all of the missed opportunities here along.

The Resident 2×18 Recap and Review: Taking a Chance on Love

The Resident 2×18 “Emergency Contact” was packed full of taking leaps of faith on love. There were a lot of loose ends tied up — like the whereabouts of Julian Booth and the fate of Mina and Micah’s engagement; but the questions left unanswered far outweighed the answers.

The Resident 2×17 Recap: Second Chances

In The Resident 2×17 “Betrayal,” there are stories of second chances, redemption, and justice (?). The episode revolves around a gunshot wound, mono, and an undercover takedown resulting in a shootout and a high-speed vehicle pursuit. Is this blowing your mind? Well, it should because when The Resident does action, it does it so well. As the episode reached its end, viewers on twitter seemed to be going out of their minds; and man, was it suspenseful until the very last second.

The Resident 2×15: The Family We Build

Mina Okafor and AJ Austin are one of the greatest ships on TV. I said it. The Resident 2×15 “Queens” proves that AJ and Mina are a slow, but forceful burn, and it’s only getting better. Mina and AJ aside, this episode was one of the best we’ve seen yet on this show.

The Resident 2×14: The Head vs. The Heart

We’ve heard it all before: follow your heart; the heart wants what it wants; the head and the heart want different things, etc. It seems that The Resident 2×14 “Stupid Things In the Name of Sex” was out to prove that the head generally wins on Valentine’s Day.
