3 Intense moments from The Resident Season 2, Episode 12

A flu frenzy sends doctors and patients alike into a panic on this week’s episode of The Resident, and one patient’s symptoms are so severe it calls for a frightening quarantine.

It’s that time of year. The time when every stranger’s sniffle makes you heighten the collar on your coat and the sound of coughing is enough to trigger your fight-or-flight response. At Chastain, the waiting room has filled with the snot and congestion of the general public, all vying for their ten minutes of doctoral attention and praying they don’t wind up in quarantine for whatever illness is currently hogging the airwaves.

The Passage: 3 heartbreaking moments from the Fox series

The second episode of The Passage trades in the high-stakes action scenes from the premiere for quieter character-building ones.

With the world of The Passage established and the deleterious agenda of Project NOAH revealed, The Passage takes the time to slow things down and establish characterization for its main characters by showing what choices from their pasts have lead them to where they are in the present.

The Resident recap: A potential operator error threatens a surgeon’s career

On this week’s episode of The Resident aptly titled “Operator Error”, Chastain reels from the death of one of their own and QuoVadis makes a move to oust one of the best doctors to protect their brand name.

The Raptor’s career is on the line after Bradley dies on the surgical table. (On another note, I really wish FOX hadn’t spoiled his death in the promo from last week’s episode of The Resident).

Fans of The Last of Us should check out FOX’s new series The Passage

The Passage is a series that fans of The Last of Us (which is currently stuck in film development hell) might find enjoyable because the main characters’ relationship is very similar to the one that Joel and Ellie share.

The Passage deals with an impending flu epidemic that is set to hit the United States. In order to prepare for it, a clandestine organization known as Project NOAH has begun testing out a new vaccine that will create immunity to all diseases. But there is a cost to this magical cure. All drug trial participants develop medically-induced signs of vampirism.

The Resident makes its midseason return: Who lived and who died?

In the midseason premiere of The Resident, three characters’ fates are decided, and the consequences of each are shocking enough to prove this show still has plenty of curveballs up its sleeve.

Finally, The Resident, my favorite crazy medical thriller, is back in action! This week we see the effect of Lane’s (Melina Kanakaredes) manipulation on Doctor Bell (Bruce Greenwood) and no one is happy about her getting out of prison on bail, least of all, her many victims. One pays a visit to Chastain this week in dire need of help after Lane’s overactive chemo treatments have left her with severe spinal damage.

The Passage – Pilot – Advance Preview: The Beginning of the End

FOX is attempting its own shot at the vampire genre tied up with the elements of a medical thriller in its new series The Passage. From the first episode alone, I’m impressed.

For starters, the pilot episode does not feel like a pilot episode at all. Gone is the clunkiness and awkward adjustment period that often plague the beginning of new dramas, and in its place is an emotional yet riveting hour of television that truly feels like the opening chapter of a long, exhilarating, journey ahead.
