The huge surprise came when Patrick was fretting over being suspended for doing an unauthorized surgery only to learn from Dr. Ford he had authorized it. He told Patrick they would have never made it into the OR if he hadn't and he only created the public scene against to protect the hospital from MedCam. "MedCam is the enemy, not me," he said with an almost defeated sigh as he left the room, causing Patrick and me both to blink in surprise and reevaluate Dr. Ford.
Jolene took time from killing and harming patients, to ask Jason out on a date at an all night bowling alley. Of course, he refused. I would suspect in part to protect the feelings of his smitten friend, Spinelli. He told Jolene "I'm no one you should be asking out," referring to the danger in his life. When she pressed for a reason said she seemed like a nice girl. Boy, if he only knew what she was hiding! With only four episodes of the Night Shift left, I'm predicating now it will Spinelli's stalking and Jolene's infatuation with Jason that will be her undoing.
In a somewhat lighter moment, Toussaint and Epiphany had a little heart to heart talk, where he explained his musical career with The Saints fell apart because of 'creative differences.' When pressed about how he went from being a musician at the top of his game to working as a janitor on the night shift, he smiled and replied he could never go to bed before the sun came up.
After signing the forms to become the temporary foster parent for baby Anna, the first step in adopting the child, Robin went in search of Patrick, finding him in the doctor's lounge. In a heart-breaking exchange, Robin spilled her heart about how important it was to care for the child, but by the same token she couldn't force him into a role he wasn't ready for. While Patrick sat quietly, unsuccessfully trying to suppress tears and saying very little, Robin cut him loose. He paused only a moment to kiss her cheek, before leaving her to her new life.
