The Night Shift‘s “Keep the Faith” opens with Mac’s funeral where, unfortunately, a mob of homophobic, anti-military protestors is waiting outside. The night shift crew try to keep it together, but you gotta love Drew’s quick temper and need to defend others. However, his outburst opens a can of worms and it’s a race to San Antonio Memorial!

“Keep the Faith” heavily focuses on veteran’s by featuring real veterans in front of the camera. Real veterans also worked with production behind the cameras. The episode was written by Brian Anthony (an Army veteran) and directed by Timothy Busfield (a Navy veteran).

Check out the exclusive clip, “Appearances are important,” for tonight’s episode below, featuring guest actor Josh Kelly (Unreal) along with Scott Wolf, Brendan Fehr, and Jill Flint:
