Do No Harm: Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Snide
At 8:25 in the morning, Jason wakes up coughing with a shoe full of cigarette butts next to him. Then we cut to work where Josh says everyone's looking for him, he needs to see all his patients and he's confused about why Jason had a package with this cell phone delivered to himself. I'm just impressed with not only the messaging service's skills (especially after watching Premium Rush), but also that the hotel manager person didn't take the cash and credit cards and run. Jason ignores Josh's questions, which seems to be the dynamic of their relationship, and instead just tells Josh to change all of his passwords and freeze all of his bank accounts and get him nicotine patches and gum. Josh didn't know his boss smoked, and Jason replies with a gruff "I don't." Poor Josh... he really has a shitty job.
Jason, who has finally put on a clean shirt, goes to see Donald (the patient with the Picasso problem). Apparently, everyone he sees looks all pixelly and fucked up, as it is a disease that messes with facial recognition. Donald doesn't even recognize his wife and daughter. He's real upset about it, but Jason insists that doing more surgery would be highly dangerous.
Before stepping into surgery, he does his mandatory blood test and the show makes a HUGE deal of showing this, so you know it is going to be important. In case the first time they showed it and talked about it was too subtle. He opens up the tennis injury woman -- who seems to have something wrong with her shoulder and not her brain, so why he's doing this really doesn't make sense unless they thought the tennis thing was brain related? Either way, it's not. Her injury is from repeated trauma, like from domestic abuse. He goes to talk to Lena about their seemingly shared patient, but she jumps about a mile in the sky and says she wants nothing to do with him. All we've seen of Ian and Lena's encounter looked like hot sex, but maybe it got nasty after we were forced to clock out.
