Do No Harm: Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Snide
Ian gets paged for surgery and laughs that this is funny, because he isn't even a surgeon. He goes to the hospital where Dr. Jordan is and naturally Dr. Jordan gives him the usual amount of requisite shit about his behavior. Apparently, the awake craniotomy has been scheduled for that night. And no one thought it was weird that a doctor who always operates during the day suddenly might have to do a rare and dangerous surgery at night when he has his known diabetic issues? The other problem is that Ian doesn't have the skills to operate. He also doesn't know how to interact with people and says that Dr. Jordan must have a small penis and that he shouldn't take out his size issues on everyone around him. The other nameless doctors and interns look on in awe. Then he says he's trying to ruin his career, scrubs up and grabs a scalpel saying "Let's have some fun."
A nurse questions Dr. Cole on why he suddenly wants music in the OR, but he shrugs her off. Guess neither he nor Jason like to answer many questions. The problem comes when he has to do his glucose test. He resists, but the medical staff is pretty insistent. It recognizes him as going into diabetic shock and they shoot him with a ton of insulin... and he passes out. Well, that's convenient. Why didn't he and Ruben plan to do that every night instead of giving him coma drugs?
He wakes up to Ruben at his bedside, who says that everything went to crap. But Jason planned the whole thing, moving up the surgery and knowing he'd fail the test because personality effects body chemistry. Aggression triggers adrenaline, which makes him look like he's having a diabetic coma. Jason's ready to get to work, but Ruben says that he shouldn't go into surgery after being unconscious for 10 hours.
We see Jason in the OR, ready to operate on a wide awake Donald. Might the patient not have a few misgivings after seeing his surgeon fall to the ground after being shot up with insulin just a few hours earlier? Even if he can't recognize faces, he surely would have been aware as to what was happening. Jason instructs too-nice Donald to tell him everything about his daughter in order to keep them aware of his language pathways. He's going on about his daughter's birthday and then abruptly stops talking, Jason moves some brain matter around and fixes it. Outside the OR, Dr. Jordan starts doing a background check on Jason, calling the old hospital he worked at. To find out if he insulted the size of anyone else's penis size before?
