New Tonight 8/7c. Catch up on the season premiere online.
A melancholy looking Alex sits in Charlie's room. Clearly, the waiting is getting to her. After laying her head on Charlie's chest, she jumps up and heads off to talk to Melanda, determined to get another chest X-ray for Charlie - his lungs sound crackly. Could this be pneumonia setting in? Melanda is disturbed to hear Alex is scheduled to work the night shift in ER, since she just finished her last shift. Spotting Joel at the nurses' station, Maggie stops to plant a kiss firmly on his lips, raising Jackson's eyebrow - though he promises Joel he neither saw nor heard anything at all. Alex takes Maggie's place, teasing Joel about his fancy jeans. Is he going to Shahir's birthday party tonight at El Convento Rico? Well then, he might be underdressed... Joel recovers quickly, telling Alex she's working too much. She explains that she's picking up extra shifts to pay for Charlie's coma arousal therapy.
