The sixth episode of Hopkins aired last Thursday on ABC. I missed the 5th episode due to a much needed family vacation, but I was happy to see this recent episode which included a kidney swap between three couples.
The show also followed the trials of a first-year surgery resident trying to find his way. Unfortunately he accidently punctured a patient’s lung during a procedure. The patient was understandably upset but also forgiving.
A pediatric resident dealt with the stressful ups and downs of working in the NICU. In fact the show follows the sad story of a premature baby.
The main highlight in this episode however was the story about three couples donating a kidney so their significant other could receive a kidney. Transplants have had a prominent role in Hopkins. With the unbeleivable project and time management needed for a succesful transplant, it’s been easy to see why.
The final episode of the series will air this Thursday night.
