Watch a sneak peek of the season 2 premiere of HAWTHORNE "No Excuses" Season 2 Episode 1 airing on Tuesday June 22 2009 at at 9 p.m. (ET/PT) on TNT.
Series Description: As the second season of HAWTHORNE opens, several Richmond Trinity doctors and nurses have been transferred to James River, a failing hospital in terrible shape. There, Christina butts heads with the ER's head nurse, Gail Strummer (Vanessa Bell Calloway -The District), who is extremely set in her ways. Christina is impressed, however, by the charming Dr. Steve Shaw (Adam Rayner - Mistresses), who hails from England, and the hard-working ER clerk Marcus Leeds (Collins Curtis Pennie - Half Nelson), who has his eye on Camille.
This season, Christina and Tom will try to forge a romantic relationship, especially now that he is no longer serving as Chief of Surgery and can devote more time to patient care and a private life. Bobbie will once again find herself helping out homeless mother Isabelle. Ray's lust-hate relationship with Dr. Marshall will hit some snags over Ray's continued feelings toward Candy, who is serving a tour of duty in Afghanistan. Kelly's confidence as a nurse will slowly build, thanks in part to her work with a nurse (guest star Sarah Gilbert - Roseanne) who's even more insecure. And Camille takes a step toward adulthood that her mother isn't sure she's prepared to take.
