Is Manish Dayal leaving The Resident, and is Dr. Devon Pravesh officially taking a new position outside Chastain? Entering tonight’s finale, we know this is the question most people were worried about — while the promos are understandably hyping up the return of Emily VanCamp, there is this other storyline that needs to be attended to.
We would understand why Devon would consider saying goodbye, mostly because the medical field can be particularly competitive at times. There’s different salaries that can be offered at different places, and then also different resources. The offer that Devon has his a big one, and he can use it in order to really make a large-scale impact on medicine in America. It’s something that is absolutely weight on him, and after all he’s gone through, we recognize the apparent interest in a fresh start.
At least entering the finale, there was no indication that Manish was leaving the show, and it’d be painfully hard to lose him. We’re talking about another longtime cast member here and we’ve already lost multiple ones in the past year and a half already. We know hospitals have turnover, but that doesn’t mean a hospital drama like The Resident needs to!
So did Devon actually leave? While nothing was confirmed in the episode tonight, it does seem like him and Layla getting back together ensures that he will stay put. The job in Baltimore was appealing, but it felt like he was looking to escape his heartbreak just as much as he was anything else. He now has an opportunity to further build out his future, and it is possible that she will decide she wants kids down the road after being against it in the past.
