The Good Karma Hospital season 2 episode 2 review: Proof of concept

The Good Karma HospitalThe Good Karma Hospital season 2 episode 2 proved to be, above all else, yet another reminder as to why this show works — and also why some British TV critics are in general a tad too cynical.

You see, The Good Karma Hospital isn’t some sort of big-budget drama desperate to make every single moment of it drawn-out and emotional. You do have some moments of comedy and fish-out-of-water exploration. Yet, you do also have meaningful moments where you start to peer into the hearts of these characters and understand more of what makes them tick and what exactly that they are striving for. Tonight’s episode was a story of getting to know characters better and, to go along with them, not judging a book by its cover. We saw that with a couple of different storylines tonight both in and around the hospital.

As a matter of fact, we even saw that tonight with the Lydia character as she realized that she really did need to try and head out into the feel in order to help a patient who no longer had her trust. She had to show in the end that she wasn’t just out for money, but to actual help and provide care. Meanwhile, Ruby also had to realize that sometimes, it is okay to take a leap and try to be bold and ambitious in life beyond just her job.

The one big cliffhanger that we had in the closing minutes is Ruby getting a note from her uncle, someone who is going to be potentially meeting her soon. This is a chance for her to make a bolder move than arguably one she’s made for the entirety of the series. This is a deep dive into her past largely like no other.
