Even though Scrubs might just be teetering on the edge of cancellation, the series continues with a new episode tonight. But since there are only a few installments left for this season, we may just find out the fate of this ABC comedy soon enough.
As for now, we'll have to settle for "Our True Lies," which will hopefully give us further insight into the new characters. We might even get a chance to peek inside their heads, since everyone's dragged into a huge problem at the med school. Consciences will go on hyper-drive when it's announced that a student cheated on an exam.
As we thought, It's Dr. Cox (John C. McGinley) who will deliver the punishment. The whole class is penalized for that one person's act, sending all of them into major guilt trips. Will one of these geniuses finally break down and confess? Or will someone else take the blame?
From what I've seen on other television shows with the same plot as the "Our True Lies" episode, what happens is that someone comes forward and takes one for the team. Usually, right before that person lies to cover up the original lie, the one responsible for the act owns up to what s/he did.
Sometimes, a wave of internal sunshine is what pushes them to admit their mistake. Or the thought that retribution will be lighter once they come clean. It's one of the classic cases in court. But this is Scrubs, and Dr. Cox might even hit the guilty party with the gavel.
And because the whole episode can't focus on that one story, we also have Denise's (Eliza Coupe) tale of woe. It's probably even more disturbing than what she and Drew (Michael Mosley) do on weekends. Okay, I don't really know about that.
Anyway, on "Our True Lies," we find out about a startling secret that Denise has been keeping for quite some time now. Could she have dumped J.D.'s whiny self in the trash somewhere? We won't know until tonight, but I'm not putting that past her.
Don't forget to catch tonight's episode of Scrubs [Med School], titled "Our True Lies" at 9pm on ABC.
