NBC has released the photos for tonight’s episode “Turbulence” and there’s a lot going on again as TC and Amira try to operate on a patient with a live explosive lodged inside him, and Drew tries to save an airplane full of people who are mysteriously falling sick with Rick and his mother on board.
There’s never a second to breathe with The Night Shift, but it looks like we’ll be getting a little bit of a break as some of the night shift staff compete in a charity obstacle course contest, although I wouldn’t be surprised if some horrible medical emergency occurs during that event as well.
The part I am most excited about though, is that Rick is back!!! Finally, five episodes into the season he shows up. It’s been too long, and I can’t wait to see more of his adorable interactions with Drew and Brianna. I’m only worried because The Night Shift is going through a character purge this season, and Rick is on the plane full of sick patients that Drew is trying to save, so I hope to god that nothing bad happens to him, because Rick or Drew getting hurt is where I draw the line.
Check out the gallery for a first look at “Turbulence” tonight, which includes an adorable picture of Rick, Drew, and Brianna finally together for the first time this season, and read the synopsis below.
Drew’s flight home with his mother and Rick turns into a medical crisis. Jordan, Shannon, Kenny, and Cain tackle an obstacle course fundraiser hosted by Akbar Gbajabiamila; Scott goes on a memorable date.
The Night Shift airs Thursdays at 10/9c on NBC.
