Night Shift (NBC) Episode 6 Coming Home (3)
The Night Shift episode 6 “Coming Home” airs Tuesday, July 1st at 10/9c on NBC.

Episode Synopsis: Night Shift (NBC) Episode 6 “Coming Home”- Drew (Brendan Fehr) is looking forward to the return of his boyfriend Rick (guest star Luke Macfarlane, “Brothers & Sisters”) from his overseas deployment but things go terribly wrong as a horrific crash sends badly wounded soldiers, including Rick, into the emergency room. Drew struggles to keep his relationship under wraps with TC’s (Eoin Macken) help, as they both try to save Rick. TC and Scott (Scott Wolf) argue over who is in charge and Jordan (Jill Flint) realizes she has to deal with some unresolved feelings for TC. Topher (Ken Leung) struggles to diagnose a soldiers illness as Krista (Jeananne Goossen) fends off the flirtations of young soldiers in the emergency room, and Paul (Robert Bailey, Jr.) must contend with their good-natured teasing because he looks so young. Kenny (JR Lemon) discovers Ragosa’s (Freddy Rodriguez) online dating profile and offers to help fix it up. Daniella Alonso also stars.

Welcome to the night shift, where every day is a fight between the heroic efforts of saving lives and the hard truths of running a hospital. At San Antonio Memorial, the men and women who work the wee hours are a special breed, particularly adrenaline junkie T.C. Callahan (Eoin Macken, “Merlin”). After a grueling tour of duty in the Middle East, T.C. is about to learn that his toughest battles will be fought right at home. He and his irreverent team of late-night docs, including Topher (Ken Leung, “Lost”) and Drew (Brendan Fehr, “Roswell”), know how to let off steam with the casual prank or two, but when lives are at stake they are all business. Unfortunately, the night shift is now under new management and boss Michael Ragosa (Freddy Rodriguez, “Six Feet Under”) is more interested in cutting costs than helping people. But T.C. has never met a rule he couldn’t break, or a person he won’t stand up to. And it’s clear that not even his ex-girlfriend (Jill Flint, “The Good Wife”) who is a doctor and now Ragosa’s second in charge, has a chance at keeping him in line. If Ragosa wants a war, he’ll get one.
Writers Gabe Sachs and Jeff Judah (“Diary of a Wimpy Kid,” “Freaks and Geeks”) and Pierre Morel (“Taken”) serve as executive producers. “Night Shift” is a production of Sony Pictures Television.

She blames an early exposure to The X-Files and the Must See TV era of NBC for her twin life-long loves of sci-fi and sitcoms. She's not sure where her all-consuming love for all things British came from, but it led her to Doctor Who so she doesn't complain.

    This was the best episode to date. I have read where the critics are not much impressed with this show but I was please to see that it had been renewed for a 2nd season. There is a sense of struggle between the military who are now in a civilian atmosphere and struggling to deal with the own issues and adjusting back into the civilian world. I hope some future episodes will also include the relationship between Drew and Rick. I really think this show had great potential if the critics will just leave it along.
