‘The Night Shift’ season 3, episode 7 review: Syd’s decision; Jordan, Scott move forward

Night Shift -With TC and Jessica’s romance heating up and Jordan and Sam’s fizzling out it’s going to be interesting to see how things shake out on tonight’s episode of “The Night Shift”. We want to see TC and Jordan get back together, but after what they went through together it has to feel like it’s been earned.

Unfortunately for the two of them, there were so many other things happening on Wednesday night’s new episode that it certainly did not look as though anyone was going to have peace. After an accident involving fireworks turned into a mass scene, many of the doctors had to scramble to be heroes there. Unfortunately, when a second explosion struck, Topher found himself injured … but refused to do anything about it for as long as he could. Suffice it to say that not everyone was particularly receptive to some of what he was doing here, refusing treatment and try to defy orders.

Meanwhile, tonight also brought us the return of Syd to the hospital, but unfortunately, she did not have many opportunities to settle in to being there. Why is that? For the latest example of that, you don’t have to look any further than her ex-husband and a nasty custody battle that is going to take her to Washington DC. It was a big movement of sacrifice for her, and we’re not sure what it means for her future on the show.

One of the better moments in this episode as a whole is that it allowed us to have some opportunities to see some characters work through their issues. For example, Paul and Shannon worked through some differences, and Jordan and Scott tried to figure out how to move forward, as well. She tried to apologize, and collectively, maybe they’re taking steps forward.

In the end, maybe this episode is about progress and taking steps forward. There will always be problems in the hospital, but who knows? Maybe some of these people are going to have a real opportunity to move forward now. Episode grade: B.
