In “The Busy Flee” (air date: Aug. 22, 2014) Dr. Thackery (Clive Owen) was visited by an old flame, who actually needed his help to perform a facial reconstruction surgery, as she had contacted syphilis from her philandering husband.
Dr. Edwards (Andre Holland) operated on a hernia patient, which resulted in a complication as the patient did not rest after the procedure. He was bleeding profusely. While the doctor tried to stop the bleeding, he died at the operating table. Dr. Edwards was still maintaining his underground surgical clinic at the Knick, which has slowly been getting patients.
Dr. Gallinger (Eric Johnson) and Dr. Chickering (Michael Angarano) were trying to learn an aneurism procedure, but the only medical basis they have was written in French. So to help his junior surgeons, Dr. Thackery sought Dr. Edwards for this, as he was one of the authors of the literature, but Edwards will not be working on the patient. He will only be guiding Gallinger through it.
Cornelia Robertson (Juliet Rylance) tended to a patient, who’s the daughter of a family friend. With the help of Dr. Thackery, who operated on the young girl, they were able to bring her back to better health. Robertson also asked the help of the health inspector as cases for typhoid fever has been escalating.
And lastly, Barrow (Jeremy Bob) kept spinning lies upon lies to save himself. While he was able to pay off the money he owed the loan shark, he still kept at his other activities, which may not only cost his job but also his marriage.
