Episode Recap: "Oh, Brother"

As Pratt's brother Chaz (Sam Jones III) settled into his new role as first year medical student, Morris' struggle to get past Greg's death continued to cloud his judgment. His desire to play the role of surrogate brother and mentor got the better of him and Chaz was put in situations that were well beyond the scope of his experience. It also created additional tension between Morris and Banfield ("How can such a good doctor be such a knucklehead?") However, their brief elevator conversation where Morris opened up about his unresolved feelings and acknowledged his poor decision-making, probably helped to ease the road for these two in the future.

Putting people at ease is clearly not an area where Dr. Cate Banfield excels and this week, even her husband fell victim to her lack of patience. As played by Angela Bassett's real-life husband Courtney B. Vance, Russell Banfield appears to be a pillar of strength for Banfield's tightly-wound and deeply-wounded chief. The intensity that Ms. Bassett brings to this role almost borders on uncomfortable at times, but I do think it makes her quieter, kinder moments more powerful as a result (case in point, her interaction with Frank tonight was very sweet.) As I mentioned previously, it looks like next week is going to pack an emotional wallop on many levels. I honestly haven't been this excited for an upcoming episode in a long time. Crying at the previews is probably not a good sign.
