Alex (Erica Durance) isn’t really looking for a new man in her life, but Joel (Daniel Gillies) and Sonja (guest star Erin Karpluk) seem to think differently – they’ve invited her out on a blind double date. As if the evening wasn’t awkward enough, her mystery man ends up needing emergency medical attention, and the group are forced to return to Hope Zion Hospital, where Alex has to figure out how to treat him while avoiding Charlie. It quickly becomes clear to Alex and Joel that her date needs multiple surgeries at once, but before they can help him, they need to get clearance from the new chief of surgery – Dana (Wendy Crewson). Meanwhile, Charlie (Michael Shanks) works with a stubborn soldier still suffering from a traumatic event in Afghanistan, but finds himself distracted by a Spirit like no other he’s ever encountered. When the spirit intervenes in the middle of the soldier’s life-or-death surgery, Charlie makes a radical split-second decision about his patient’s health that forces him to confront the implications of his connection to the dead. Maggie (Julia Taylor Ross) treats a woman who has a viral illness that could potentially affect her own child, which forces her and Gavin (Kristopher Turner) to deal with the unspoken issues surrounding her pregnancy. Directed by Yon Motskin and written by Waneta Storms.
Alex (Erica Durance) is looking forward to a night of relaxation after a stressful week, but as she leaves the hospital she becomes a witness to a near-fatal accident and is forced back into her role as a doctor. The Hope Zion Hospital team arrives on site to take over, but Alex is determined to stay with the Code Team to try and save the John Doe victim’s life. The team rushes him into surgery, but, with time running out, they face a litany of complications. It’s a race against the clock in this real-time episode as Alex and the team refuse to give up on their patient. Meanwhile, Gavin (Kristopher Turner) forces Charlie (Michael Shanks) into a walk-and-talk therapy session in an attempt to explore and understand his relationship to the Spirit World.
