I wish the CW could see how many loyal viewers are totally disappointed that we’re in the final three episodes of Emily Owens, MD. My inbox blew up with comments supporting and mourning the show, and I wonder if it will again after “Emily and the Teapot,” this week’s episode. Sometimes it takes a hot minute for a show to gain a following, but these days, it’s all about instant gratification.
I admit, I was ambivalent about the show at first, but I have developed an interest in these characters, and I am crossing my fingers for some kind of satisfying resolution when the end comes two weeks from now. Being a hypochondriac, watching this show hasn’t always been good for my mental health, but I have admired the way the medical cases seamlessly blend into the personal lives of the doctors, this week in particular. That’s a sign of good writing, something this show has never lacked. I wish I knew why it didn’t catch a larger audience.
I do wonder, though, if it was a touch too cerebral for its network and their target demographic.
Bolstered by her belief that Will was secretly in love with her, Emily moved through this episode with a surprising amount of confidence, something that ultimately led her to land a coveted research assistant position with Dr. Bandari. It came down to Emily, Cassandra and Will for the spot, and the fight was bitter. Not, however, bitter enough to break up Will and Cassandra, even after he got to see his girlfriend at her worst.
And that was when Emily did the smartest thing she’s done in eleven episodes. She let go of Will. Finally!! Desperately wanting to be someone’s first choice, Emily woke the hell up and realized that with Will, she never would be. Of course, unbeknownst to her, she is Micah’s first choice, and it was so good to see his face when Emily told him of her decision to drop Will. After nearly losing his mom to a complication, Micah needed to hear that. Is two episodes long enough to see them hooked up and happy?
