Find out more details into this upcoming episode below, but first, let’s take a quick recap of what happened in the last episode.
In “Where’s the Dignity?” (air date: Sept. 5, 2014), Dr. Gallinger (Eric Johnson) and Dr. Edwards (Andre Holland) had an altercation at the operating theater. The tension between the surgeons has been escalating, and it looked like it will not be easily diffused soon, seeing as Dr. Thackery (Clive Owen) also had prejudice about Dr. Edwards.
Speaking of Dr. Thackery, he briefly had a moment with his ex-girlfriend, Abby, who remained at the hospital for her facial surgery reconstruction. Nurse Lucy (Eve Hewson) also discovered another of Dr. Thackery’s secret— he was visiting Chinatown to get his opium high.
Barrow’s attempts at paying off his debts has lead to his stealing more bodies at the hospital to sell to universities. He was lying to the relatives of the patients as well, telling them that the bodies have been cremated, as per the patient’s request, when it wasn’t really the case.
Dr. Edwards met Cornelia Robertson’s (Juliet Rylance) fiancé, who told his surprised future wife that they were going to settle in San Francisco after the wedding. Edwards was concerned that this was not what his childhood friend wanted.
Cleary and Sister Harriet had a confrontation about the latter’s activities as an abortionist. But instead of reporting her to the authorities, the two made a business pact that could serve both of them better.
Dr. Chickering’s father was with his son to observe what he was doing at the hospital, and he wasn’t quite happy by what he discovered. He belittled what his son was doing at the Knick.
