‘The Resident’ Season 5 Episode 6 takes us into the future. Yes, the show will be going through a time jump where Gigi has grown up. Things have changed quite around than what it was. We are not predicting quite yet now as the promo doesn’t seem to give a better idea of what the show is up to. All we see is Conrad has quit his job at Chastain hospital while there is a relationship tension between Kit and Bell. Anyway, before we move into the time jump, the show gave us a quiet closure that was needed for Nic’s death in a recent Halloween special.
Here is what went down, we had patients who believed they were witches. Then patients who believe they are seeing ghosts. So you may opt to treat them medically, but at the same time, how can someone handle what they are thinking? That’s where AJ popped in, who played along with these patients and got everything done mentally as well as physically. Lastly, a connection with a patient made Conrad realize that Nic will always be there with him. Here is a complete look at what happened previously on the show before we move with the time jump in ‘The Resident’ Season 5 Episode 6.
‘The Resident’ S05 E05 Recap
Previously on ‘The Resident’ Season 5, we opened up with Conrad still having dreams of Nic by his side. Only for him to start his day with Gigi all alone. So it’s Halloween, and the first patients are three women who believe they are witches. They have hurt themselves and had staff had to bring them forcefully to the hospital. Meanwhile, Randolph is out on the road remembering the days he traveled hitchhiking to schools and colleges. Kit warned him of picking anyone, but still, he ended up picking a man named Mike.
Apart from the witches, there was another patient named Ethan has been having chest pain. The patient also believes that his house is haunted and the spirits living there are the reason behind his chest pain. While his girlfriend and Devon tried a medical approach, AJ decided to play along with these kinds of patients into what they were thinking. Thus helping them calm down before they opt for the medical ways of treatment. Conrad, on the other hand, realizes one of the patient’s conditions is similar to him as she lost a son. As this goes on, Randolph gets closer with his hitchhiker friend.
After calming Ethan down, Devon reveals that he has a growth in the chest called pheochromocytoma. Therefore, it’s definitely not the spirits that are causing him the chest pain. Kit on the TV learns about a serial killer on the loose and leaves a message for Randolph, letting him know not to pick up hitchhikers. AJ works on the surgery of Ethan while Conrad and one of the witch patients learn that one of them accidentally added Foxglove in their tea. Therefore they are seeing everything yellow with people having a halo behind their neck.
The episode comes to a close with the same witch patient comforting Conrad. She believes Nic is always there around for him and will always live with him. Things get tense between Randolph and Hitchiker Mike, but Randolph carries it well by being honest about killings. Thus the hitchhiker leaves him alone. Randolph returns to the hospital to see Mike’s arrest on TV. AJ gives a scary history lesson to Devon about the hospital. Conrad invited everyone to his house for dinner. He returns home to see a gift that was ordered by Nic for this day a while back. It is the costume for Gigi which Conrad forgot. Everyone came to Conrad’s house to celebrate and call the night off.
