The Resident episode 10 aired on Fox Monday night, and it was fairly clear from the get-go that just about every doctor was still struggling to cope with what happened with Lily at the end of this past installment. She died, but in an effort to understand what happened there were plans to autopsy her and try to uncover what really happened.
Lily was no ordinary patient and as a result of that, we saw the team at the hospital struggle to grapple with her death in some unusual ways. For Conrad Hawkins, he largely shut down as a result of hearing the news. Despite hurting his ankle he refused to really listen to any advice from others. He also didn’t want to talk about what happened to Lily. This enraged Devon in particular, who felt as though he was the one caring more for Lily than anyone.
While Conrad sulks (while also trying to help a legendary patient) and is told that he needs to be the one to help Nic through some of her own struggles, Dr. Bell got some consolation from Dr. Lane after some of his latest struggles in the courtroom. He is still struggling with the tremor and, to go along with it, he is struggling to make money. Most of it has ended up in the hands of other people.
It was in this conversation between Bell and Lane where we started to get a sense as to what she really wanted: She wanted Bell to run Chastain, mostly because he would instill a different philosophy that would allow her to be less transparent and do precisely what she wanted. She doesn’t want to have to deal with any trouble that could come her way because of her treatments, and obvious Bell doesn’t want anyone to know about his struggles.
The end of the story
Conrad ended up paying Nic a visit at the conclusion of the episode, and while she was concerned about his ankle, he did his best to show real concern for her. She drove him home and then did her part to help take care of him — that is her job in part, but beyond that she does care about him.
Then, Conrad did try to comfort Nic and you could probably see where the story was going: They slept together and all of a sudden, it seems like they may be getting back together.
While The Resident episode 10 didn’t take some leaps forward that some people may have expected, it did a pretty pitch-perfect job of setting up what could be the endgame for this season later on.
