The Night Shift (NBC) “Back at the Ranch” Season 2 Episode 2

The Night Shift Season 2 Episode 2 “Back at the Ranch” airs Tuesday, March 2nd at 10/9c on NBC. In tonight’s episode, when a rancher accidentally shoots his own wife, TC (Eoin Macken), Kenny (JR Lemon) and Paul (Robert Bailey Jr.) try desperately to save her but it’s too late. Before TC can come to terms with the loss of his patient, he’s sent out to the scene of a crazy teenage ranch party where he performs a risky surgery in order to save the life of a young football star. Back at the hospital, Jordan (Jill Flint) and Kenny (JR Lemon) rush to the aid of a beauty queen who has wandered into the emergency room in severe distress but treating her symptoms only leads to further complications. Topher (Ken Leung) decides he wants to keep the top job and builds the nerve to approach Jordan about it.

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.
