It’s almost cruel to introduce new, interesting characters and plot twists after a show has been canceled. In this week’s Emily Owens, MD, “Emily and the Social Experiment,” we met Micah’s friend, Dr. AJ Aquino, back from a year-long absence after a mistake in the ER led to a public blow-up with Dr. Bandari. As we later found out, though, the bad blood between them was probably a lot more personal.
The main crux of the episode revolved around Emily trying to figure out if Will really had gotten jealous over her flirtation with Peanut Allergy Guy in the last episode. Tyra encouraged her to try flirting with other men in front of him, to gauge his reaction, but all it led to was Emily catching the eye of the hospital’s Lothario. As she pointed out, it wasn’t a fair test because Will, being her friend, would try to save her from the playboy even if he didn’t have any romantic feelings for her.
