In this episode of The Resident Rulebreakers, Kayla and Camille discuss episode 2x09 - "The Dance", as well as all the recent news about Emily VanCamp.

Written by Amy Holden Jones and Andrew Chapman, Directed by Rob Corn.

Original Airdate: November 26, 2018


Recent News:

- Emily and her husband, Josh, had a baby girl that they named Iris. Actual birthdate is unknown.

- After revealing she has given birth, news broke that Emily has decided to leave The Resident, which leaves fans wondering what happens to Nic.

- The new promo released in the past week somewhat hints at the route the show will probably take with Nic's fate.

- Amy Holden Jones reveals that Rob Corn is the director of 5x01.

- There is no official press release or photos from Fox yet for the premiere - but we predict that that information will be revealed SOON.


Episode 2x09 Discussion:

- Devon Doesn't Get Married

  • Since before the pilot, Devon has been engaged to Priya - now it's time to get married.
  • Devon has second thoughts after his infamous kiss with Julian and a conversation with his mom.
  • He decides to call off the wedding - which causes Devon and Priya to have one last fight where we believe both had valid reasons for feeling how they felt. 
  • The wedding outfits designed for this episode were so beautiful.
  • Irving as best man and Bradley as a groomsman. *LOVE IT!*
  • As much as Julian didn't want to be the reason Devon doesn't marry Priya - she is THE reason - and there's no denying that she didn't willingly accept being kissed by Devon.
  • We also both agree that if it had happened, a divorce would have also happened very soon after - especially with Priya deciding to work on the west coast.

- Julian

  • In 2x08 - Julian comes to the realization that QuoVadis is a fraudulent company and she decides not only to quit her job, but blow the whistle on it to the FDA. 
  • In one of the episode's cliffhangers, Julian is ran off the road by Gordon Page's henchmen - and leaves us hanging for 9 episodes wondering what happened to her. We are very glad they resolved this plot.

- Marshall

  • Marshall reveals he has Chron's Disease after he has a flare up that causes him to need emergency surgery - and the doctor on call is Bell. An option both Marshall and Conrad dislike.
  • This is the other cliffhanger for the episode - and while Marshall survives the surgery, his conversation with Conrad about Conrad's mother is one that after all this time still hasn't been resolved. We'd love to see this storyline have closure.
  • Nic is the push for Conrad to talk to Marshall - and we are all for it. 

- The Old Man

  • Conrad, AJ and Mina treat an older man who has a heart murmur. 
  • Conrad envies the relationship the man has with his daughter and grandson - and makes that point to Nic very clearly.
  • AJ and Mina do surgery to repair the murmur and make it to Devon's "wedding" with time to spare.
  • The man just wants to get back to his charity work in Nicaragua.

- The Free Clinic

  • Nic and Mina are trying to get Bell on board with the free clinic - especially since Chastain has to do community outreach to remain tax exempt.
  • Kayla wishes they would bring a form of the free clinic back - but wonders how it would work now that Chastain is a public hospital.

- Micah

  • Run, Micah, Run. If we were him - we'd run after hearing the comments Mina makes about marriage and having kids in this episode. Kind of ironic he proposes to her 5 episodes later - thankfully he realized it wasn't going to work out.

- Grayson

  • Loved seeing Grayson in this episode, but seeing him makes us really want him to return to The Resident as Kit's assistant.

- Bell

  • Bell is working hard to make sure Chastain doesn't have its image damaged by Lane Hunter who is blackmailing him with a sex tape for her bail money.
  • Unfortunately, Bell goes to Gordon Page for the bail money and the hospital goes bankrupt because of it. This storyline finally was resolved this past season with Chastain going public. Seriously, Bell? What were you thinking?
  • We don't miss this version of Bell at all.
