The Night Shift (NBC) “Parenthood” Season 2 Episode 9

The Night Shift Season 2 Episode 9 “Parenthood” airs Monday, April 13th at 10/9c on NBC. In tonight’s episode, Drew (Brendan Fehr) finds himself in the middle of a shooting at a friend’s Army promotion ceremony and springs into action, disarming the shooter. Later, he has to treat his best friend’s wife and finds that her bullet injury has revealed an even more severe medical condition. Topher (Ken Leung) and TC (Eoin Macken) treat a young woman whose chronic bouts of psychosis are becoming a danger to herself and her family. The ER team has to scramble to diagnose and treat the young woman before she is arrested for her mysterious, violent behavior. Paul (Robert Bailey Jr.) treats a nine-year-old boy with severe cystic fibrosis and his concern for the boy’s health leads him to break a few rules regarding hospital protocol. Meanwhile, Ragosa (Freddy Rodriguez) is devastated when his financial troubles put his daughter’s Quinceañera in jeopardy.

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.
