Code Black ep 16

It’s Notable Guest Star Week on Code Black, with Beau Bridges(!), Annie “Renee from 24” Wersching and Odell Beckham Jr. (whom I understand is a very big deal in the NFL) all popping in to Angels for a bit of the craic.

Well, Odell came in for the craic and for a genuinely sweet storyline about his sick “Coach” Beau (which reminded me of my beloved Friday Night Lights and Coach and Mrs Coach, sigh). Beau and Annie popped in to play patients.

All that was fine, and everyone had a lovely time passing Annie’s wee baby about and wiping away a tear or two at Odell’s lovely motivational speech to Coach Beau. Less fine but still passable were Leanne struggling with being the new Administrator and not wearing scrubs (nobody cares, you guys) and a very odd storyline about Heather being involved in crackpot cryogenics (WTF?). Downright annoying, however, was Neal’s ex Grace, whom we’d never even heard of before, turning up and taking over most of the episode with some eye-rollingly “maverick” mercy mission story involving a sick orphan, some pretty brazen manipulation of a hospital-full of staff, and a load of emotional blackmail. I imagine we were supposed to like or at least admire this woman, what with her charitable endeavours and her “maverick” tendencies and her determination to save her patient no matter whose career (Neal’s) or relationship (Neal and Christa’s) she might jeopardise in the process, but neither Christa nor I ever want to see her again. So we’ll be stuck with her till the end of the season, I’m sure. Two eps to go!

    I thought Heather was the absolute worst this episode. I literally see zero redeeming qualities about her and think she’s even worse than Mario, which is an absolute low. How do you make some horrible comments about someone’s dying wish as a doctor? Gross.

      Agreed. The Heather storyline was just so bizarre. She is an awful, awful person. Mario has started to look like a semi-decent human being by comparison, which takes some doing.
