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 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 Good Doctor 2×18 Review: “Trampoline”

The season finale is here already, The Good Doctor fans, and I’m really just left with one question: where the hell did the time go? As up and down I feel this season has been, ‘Trampoline’ definitely went out on a high note for season two, and made me excited for season three. Which I was not sure was possible till now.

As cheesy as it sounds, this episode was a jumping off point for a whole new slew of stories, by wrapping up Shaun’s career struggle with Han, who he asked out on a date, Lim and Melendez status change, and Glassman’s leap of faith.

I mean, good lord, did all that happen in one episode?
