The Night Shift (NBC) "Moving On" Season 2 Episode 12 (2)

The Night Shift Season 2 Episode 12 “Moving On” airs Monday May 4 at 10/9c on NBC. In tonight’s episode, TC (Eoin Macken) introduces the night shift team to his MMA group therapy leader, Colonel Elwood “Smalls” Green (guest star, country music legend Trace Adkins), who surprises the group with a special greeting from First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden. Jordan (Jill Flint) and Paul (Robert Bailey Jr.) help a nine-year-old boy with a serious fever. When his high-strung mother begins to exhibit signs of distress as well, the team realizes there is more to the family dynamic than meets the eye.

Topher (Ken Leung) is faced with a big decision about making an emergency trip overseas to help a close friend with a fatal heart condition, and TC considers whether he should accompany Topher on the journey. Meanwhile, Ragosa (Freddy Rodriguez), Drew (Brendan Fehr) and Krista (Jeananne Goossen) compete for the strangest case of the night as the full moon brings in the weirdest patients. JR Lemon also stars. Merle Dandridge guest 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.
