The Night Shift (NBC) “Recovery” Season 2 Premiere 2015

The Night Shift Season 2 Episode 1 “Recovery” airs Tuesday, February 23rd at 10/9c on NBC. In tonight’s episode, after a harrowing hostage incident left the night shift team badly shaken, everyone is finally back to business…everyone except TC Callahan (Eoin Macken), who has been temporarily suspended from the hospital after a PTSD breakdown on the job. After recovering from his near-fatal gunshot wound, Topher Zia (Ken Leung) has temporarily taken over as chief of the night shift while Jordan Alexander (Jill Flint) fields scrutiny over her medical mishandling of the man who shot him. TC can’t stay away from the action however and joins Jordan out in the field, and with the help of head surgeon Scott Clemmens (guest star Scott Wolf, “Perception”), they push the limits of medical technology to save a father trapped beneath an elevator. Dr. Joey Chavez (guest star Adam Rodriguez, “Reckless”) brings a new zen vibe to the ER when he steps in as chief surgeon on a freak motorcycle accident case, working to the beat of his own drum. Meanwhile, Ragosa (Freddy Rodriguez) returns to the ER with a surprising new lease on life after surviving cancer.

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.
