The Night Shift Season 1 Finale Recap: Save Me

The Night Shift”  Season 1 Finale Episode 8 “Save Me” aired on Tuesday, July 15, 2014, on NBC. We saw a hostage incident, a plane crash and death. It was such an intense episode.  Read on for the full recap.

Previously on “The Night Shift” (“Save Me”), the doctors at San Antonio Memorial were working on the patients from the explosion at the oil refinery, which means that everybody have their hands full. Landy and Ragosa were talking to the victims’ family and friends and, at the same time, making sure that the whole staff were organized, especially that Ragosa broke the news that Dwayne’s dead and Topher had been badly injured. With such news, it put the staff in under pressure.


A detective was there to take Milo, and he was inconsiderate with the hospital’s rules and regulations. He didn’t want to understand what Milo had put the hospital through and insisted on taking Milo. Ragosa then asked Jordan to take care of Milo. However, Jordan was still terrorized as being taken hostage, and Ragosa might have forgotten all about this, but still, Jordan pushed through with her assigned task and came to Milo and ordered some tests to be done. She found out that Milo has an aortic tear. The surgeons were busy saving the lives of other patients, so Jordan tried to save Milo’s life temporarily. However, the injury ended his life.

This angered the detective and wanted Jordan. Ragosa was ready to defend Jordan at all costs. Meanwhile, TC, Jordan and Scott teamed up to save Topher’s life. After struggling with the catheter, the team saw Topher peed blood, which was bad news. While Scott was working on Topher’s spinal injury, TC came in the operating room, confusing Topher as his brother. All through the night, TC was in “twilight zone,” and he found himself going back to the scene where his brother was killed. It turned out that he blames himself for the death of his brother.

We also found out that Ragosa has a tumor behind his eye, and the show wrapped up after that. It was such an intense episode, not to mention a cliffhanger right there. We have to wait until next summer for “The Night Shift” Season 2.
