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 2×15: 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.

The Resident 2×08 Review: Chastain Reveals All Secrets

Whoa. Every week The Resident takes television to a whole other level and I cannot get enough. The episode is appropriately titled “Heart In A Box” and most of our beloved characters have put their hearts out there this week for our viewing pleasure.

The Resident 2×07 “Trial and Error”: Devon’s Undoing

I have to admit that I worried about this season of The Resident. Last year, I quickly became addicted to the show, but there were some less exciting episodes in the first season that made me begin questioning whether or not the series was going to end up with a second season. Unfortunately, in the times of cancelling shows like it’s nothing, it’s really difficult to become emotionally attached. The Resident proved me wrong this season. Seven episodes in, and it’s only getting better.

The Resident: 2×02 “The Prince and the Pauper” Review

The Resident‘s “The Prince and the Pauper” started with a peek into the intimate lives of the doctors of Chastain. Mina (Shaunette Renee Wilson) and Micah (Patrick R. Walker) share a conversation about sticking together in his recovery after open-heart surgery. CoNic nibble on vegetable kabobs and dance on a twinkling rooftop while they try to have a distraction-free evening together outside of the hospital.

The Resident: Season 2 Premiere “00:42:30” Review

During the summer break, I admit I’d forgotten the appeal of my favorite medical drama. I sat down to watch the Season Two premiere “00:42:30” of The Resident rather reluctantly. TV seems overwhelming right now with all of the buzz of a million new pilots.

There’s been a lot of medical dramas — and there’s been even more shows put out there with overused plot lines and ideas that just don’t seem to work once they hit the screens — but The Resident drew me in all too quickly once again. All I have to say is three words: Steamy. Sex. Scene. Literally, the show started off with CoNic in a shower. The chemistry between Conrad Hawkins (Matt Czuchry) and Nic Nevins (Emily VanCamp) is not only undeniable but it is everything that makes a TV couple lovable and — dare I say — desirable.
