“From the Ashes” Plot – The doctors of Chastain are surrounded by new rules and doctors, as Red Rock Mountain Medical takes over the hospital. Conrad finds himself in a dangerous situation when the construction for a new neurosurgery center causes a gas explosion at Chastain. Meanwhile, new hotshot neurosurgeon Barrett Cain (Chestnut), is put to the test with a complicated surgery and Mina acts as a support for Nic, who is struggling with a devastating loss.
A Look Back at Season 2, Courtesy of Fox:
Season Two found star resident DR. CONRAD HAWKINS (Czuchry) continuing to make difficult calls in the best interests of his patients. But, having rekindled a romantic relationship with nurse NICOLETTE “NIC” NEVINS (VanCamp), the two faced unresolved issues from their past. Conrad’s father, MARSHALL WINTHROP (Morshower), had taken over as head of Chastain and came into direct conflict with the hospital’s newly minted CEO, DR. RANDOLPH BELL (Greenwood).
Meanwhile, DR. MINA OKAFOR (Wilson) continued to work with her larger-than-life mentor, DR. AJ AUSTIN (Warner). However, the skills of new ortho surgeon DR. KITT VOSS (Leeves) could lead Mina on a different path. First-year resident DR. DEVON PRAVESH (Dayal) became intrigued by new medical device rep JULIAN BOOTH (guest star Jenna Dewan), whose presence at the hospital upended business as usual for everyone there.
