We’ve waited four seasons, and it’s finally happening. We’ll get to see Conrad’s time in the military in The Resident Season 4, Episode 7.
Conrad wants to spend time with Nic. After everything she’s been through and the fight to keep their baby alive, he wants to enjoy some time off. That’s not going to be this episode.
While trying to spend the day with Nic, Conrad gets a call that he probably isn’t expecting. His former military commander is injured and needs his help. Of course, he won’t leave a man behind and Nic isn’t exactly going to stop him from going.
One thing this episode promises from the promo is that we’ll finally get those Conrad flashbacks we’ve been waiting for.
The Resident Season 4, Episode 7 spoilers: What made Conrad what he is today?
Time with the military always changes a person. It leaves a mark, but also helps some people become the confident people they are. It’s clear that his time as a medic in the military has made him what he is today.
Conrad deeply cares for his patients, but he is also calm in an emergency. Even when it was Nic’s life on the line, Conrad was able to hold it all together until he was alone.
He will do what is best for the patient, looking out for anything that could be a problem and remaining calm under pressure. This is something he would have learned out in Afghanistan, and it’s time to see what it was that made him the doctor he is now.
One thing The Resident hasn’t done is given us a PTSD moment. There probably isn’t much that Conrad carries with him from the past unless something happens to bring the moments up. After all, as a medic, he would have seen some terrible things, but it would have been part of his job. Military medics have this uncanny ability to compartmentalize everything—all doctors and nurses seem to have that ability.
Instead of something that will trigger PTSD, we’ll probably just get flashbacks of what his commander meant to him; why Conrad is so determined to find him and save his life.
