  • Mina & Micah (& AJ)
  • #CoNic and their cute rooftop date night
  • Julian's first appearance - and how we knew then that Priya and Devon were doomed
  • Bell gets arrested for solicitation - and doesn't self report it to the state medical board. We also talk about his amazing character growth since this episode to what he is today.
  • Devon and his med school students - and how much we miss Ezra
  • Marshall wants Conrad's opinions and input and Bell hates it - he also takes advice from Nic about starting community outreach with the free clinic.
  • The parallels of their families having money changes everything for two young kids with diabetes. Jack survives and gets excellent care, Abby is rationing her insulin - and ends up in the ICU in diabetic coma. 
  • The crisis of how expensive insulin is in America - a 1200% increase in price and the drug never changed.
  • The mantra of profits over patients - and how they illustrated this not only with the insulin - but the air transport companies as well.
