B Positive Season 1 – Episode 8 Release Date
At the start of this installment, we saw that Drew has diagnosed himself at the early stages of renal failure. The doctor advises him to get a transplant soon because if he does not do that, the situation must become adverse. While he was invited to a wedding, he stumbles across Gina. She is his high school mate who, after hearing his situation, offers to donate the kidney as soon as possible. Well, he turns her down but soon realizes, as his attempts to find an eligible kidney donor fails, that he truly needs her help. Gina is advised by the doctor to not consume any drugs or alcohol for three months before the transplant finally takes place. But Drew gets shocked when he finds out that Gina is passed out at her apartment. This leads him to believe that, just like everyone in his life, Gina was also trying to mess with him and was never serious.
The doctor pipes in and burdens Drew even more with his condition saying that if he does not get a replacement soon, things will become truly worse for him. The most recent thing that happened in the show is that Drew has finally received a transplant but needs to follow quite a strict diet if he wants to lead a healthy life. He also can not go to Ohio for her daughter because there are no apt medical services there for him. Now, we are all waiting for B Positive season 1 episode 8 to drop because it will tell us how Drew and Gina are working it out together. The episode is called Integration Therapy and is set to release on the 18th of February 2021.
