‘The Resident’ 2×08 Photos & Synopsis: “Heart In A Box”

Hello, fellow The Resident fans! It’s been two weeks since the last episode left us with a lot of unanswered questions. Well, the photos and synopsis for the November 19th episode of The Resident, titled “Heart In A Box”, are out and they should help hold us over until the episode airs.

Official synopsis from Fox:

Conrad goes head-to-head with Bell after he recommends one of Julian’s (guest star Jenna Dewan) risky medical devices to Zoey (guest star Daniella Alonso), who’s already lost one son and is back in the hospital with the other. Nic fears that Conrad may be getting overly attached to his patient. Meanwhile, Mina and Austin grow closer while working on a difficult heart transplant, Devon embarks on a very difficult day and Dr. Lane Hunter (guest star Melina Kanakaredes) returns.

First off, Melina Kanakaredes is returning in this episode as Dr. Lane Hunter – you know the doctor that murdered Lily last season. My question is why? WHY IS SHE BACK??? The hope is they reveal that Dr. Hunter gets sentenced to the death penalty for the murder of Lily, but who knows with this show. It’s been known to shock us, however, it wouldn’t do Lily any justice if Dr. Hunter gets let out of jail. So, please give Lily justice.

We’ll start the hashtag now: #JusticeForLily

Next, the mom and brother of the little boy who died in “The Germ”, are back and Nic worries that Conrad may be getting too attached, especially when a risky device is in play. If you remember, the brother has epilepsy and so experimental treatment is risky. We can see why Conrad may be protective, especially after this mother lost one child already.

Our question is: will it make us cry again?

And Mina and AJ grow closer, and they’ve been teasing them for a while now – but Mina has a boyfriend. How will they handle this? Especially with our issues surrounding the plot with Devon, Priya, and Julian. Speaking of that, the press release notes that Priya is also in this episode, which will hopefully answer a lot our questions from “Trial And Error”. Is this the end of Devon and Priya?? Just watch the promo below to see if it made you wonder this too.

We will see how it all plays out on November 19th.

Here is the promo for the episode:
