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.

The Resident 2×13: Fears of the Unknown

If you have not watched The Resident 2×13 “Virtually Impossible”, then you definitely need to drop whatever you are doing, and watch one of the best episodes that this show has graced us with.

This show truly gets better and better due to one key thing: character investment. We are absolutely 100% in love with these characters. Throughout season one, we fell in love with Conrad and then Nic. And we fell in love with their love and respect for one another. When we thought that we couldn’t love a cold-hearted Mina or a cocky, arrogant new resident doctor, Devon Pravesh – we fell in love with them, too. They gave us the abrasive, yet quirky, AJ Austin, and with time we realized that we adored his passion and unique outlook on life.

This episode may have even made me respect Dr. Randolph Bell just a (tiny) bit, but yes, The Resident can even make you love a character like Dr. Bell, or at least have an understanding of him. In this episode, we wanted to hold our beloved Chastain team. We rejoiced in their surgical win. And we truly smiled a big Conrad-like grin when everyone seemed to end up on the same side for once. But the theme of this episode was the great unknown, and we held our breath with these characters the whole way through.

The Resident 2×09 Review: Who’s Going To Die?

I’ve applauded The Resident these past couple of episodes for finally figuring out its pacing and not overpacking the episodes with too much. Well, unfortunately I can’t give you that this week, The Resident fans.

In the mid-season finale 2×09 “The Dance”, the writers are trying to bring all of their storylines to a peak and by doing so, it feels forced and rather anti-climatic in some regards. When I sat down to gather my thoughts on the episode, I actually forgot about some of the storylines altogether because there was so much going on.

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.
