The Resident Rulebreakers

Season 4, Episode 5 - Trial and Error: The Start of Jessie’s Decline

August 9, 2021

This week on The Resident Rulebreakers, we discuss episode 2x07 - "Trial and Error". 

Written by Chris Bessounian and Tianna Majumdar-Langham; Directed by Rob Greenlea


A season 5 premiere date has been set! It will premiere on September 21, 2021 at 8 PM on Fox. 

*Keep an eye on our social media/the group for more information as we get closer to the premiere airing.*


In this discussion:

  • Jessie and her friend, John, participate in a drug trial - with horrible consequences 

    • This is the start of Jessie's health issues that eventually kill her at the end of the season. John dies in this episode and Bell giving the death notice makes Kayla cry.)
    • Oh, and good Bell begins to show up
    • Conrad was there for Nic through it all, which proves how strong they are - and the writers forgot this later in the season
  • Devon and Julian kiss 
    • And we both ask - WTF?!?!? It's all that's needed here
  • The Bollywood Dance/Devon's "Bachelor Party"/The Bar
    • A botched Bachelor Party turns in a night of karaoke and Bollywood dancing at the bar 
    • After a comment from Kit about Bell getting a high end prostitute - we are reminded that Bell was arrested for solicitation earlier in the season
  • Metal Joint Replacements Can Kill You
    • There's a PSA in this plot to say know what your surgeon is putting in you when you get a joint replacement - because a metal one can poison you from the inside out
  • We Miss Bad Ass Mina
    • The Mina of this episode is the one we will miss the most. Especially the lines like "Don't call me Princess" or "I'm not your Queen"
    • Also, we love how she introduced Conrad and AJ to her hip replacement patient
