Episode 2x08 discussion:

    • Mina opens up to AJ about the death of her sisters

    • "Broken Heart Syndrome" and the "Heart in a Box" surgery
  • #CoNic
    • Despite working opposite sifts, they make time for each other
    • Nic also worries Conrad is too attached to Henry
  • Henry
    • Has a seizure playing baseball and they put him on a third drug which triggers QuoVadis to ask Julian to pitch the VNS to Henry's mom - we wonder if this actually happens. 
    • Conrad is against the VNS - but Zoey is desperate to see her son not have seizures. Especially since she has already lost one son. QuoVadis manipulated Zoey into this.
    • Kayla reminds everyone this is the extreme situation of Epilepsy and surgery is a last resort. Meds are the first go to always. She also rants about them calling seizure meds toxic - not all of them are - but also what is the alternative to them - a very unlivable life.
  • Julian learns the truth about QuoVadis
  • Lane Hunter's return and her blackmailing Bell with a sex tape to get out of jail
  • Devon's horrible day
    • He has a racist patient, gets thrown up on and punched by a meth head, but still loves his job because it's his calling.
    • His personal life is in shreds. He decides to stay in Atlanta instead of follow Priya to San Francisco - but also can't stop thinking of Julian. This is the last nail in the coffin for the Devon/Priya relationship.
    • Camille has a rant about racism and healthcare.
