Thursday night on NBC, The Night Shift season 4 finale is set to air, and it could be a life-changing hour for many of the characters. The hospital is in the midst of a potential makeover to a training facility, characters like Drew and Shannon are starting to look at their future in all aspects, and there’s of course the uncertainty as to whether or not this is a series finale. After all, the network has not made it clear one way or another what the future will hold for the show. (Fingers crossed!)
Leading up to this episode, we had a chance to speak with both Jill Flint (Jordan) and Brendan Fehr (Drew) in a conference call with reporters about some of the major storylines coming into play. Take a look at a few quotes below.
CarterMatt – Jill, what have you felt about the evolution of Jordan as a character so far this season? Have you enjoyed this journey of seeing her become more of a leader?
Jill Flint – It’s interesting for me, because for me personally I don’t see myself as the natural leader, jumping in charge to take over something. It’s been a fun journey to navigate with her, and I like the fact that I can step into the shows of this woman who isn’t afraid to go for it.
I like to see a woman in charge, and a woman stand up, take over, and do what needs to be done in order to save what she believes in. I admire that in her.
Brendan, what sort of tension could there be for Drew and Rick in the finale? We learned that Rick wants to expand their family, and now Drew wants to enter ranger school. Will everything come to a head?
Brendan Fehr – We don’t wrap it up and put a bow on it, but Drew and Rick do have a conversation about it and we do move forward from there. There are still questions regarding how all of that’s going to turn out.
Let’s close by talking about cliffhangers. Do you think that the end of the episode is going to satisfy fans, or will have them screaming at their TV?
Jill – So you want to know if all of our lives are in peril by the end of this episode?
It’s been that way before!
Jill – You know what? By the end of this episode you see everyone in a new direction. I think there are a few things that will happen — I don’t want to say it’s warm and fuzzy, but I think it’s a beautiful ending. I think the fans will be happy.
Brendan – Throughout the show I think all of the characters have come into their own. I think by the end of this everyone is going to take an additional step towards doing or becoming something [they want], and taking on something that’s been weighing on their mind. You see a lot of characters taking chances that they’ve probably been thinking about for a long time. I don’t know how those pan out — they’re up in the air — but I think you see some steps forward.
