Conrad gets play hero once again, Austin’s past is revealed and the situation with Jessie’s kidney turns dire on a new episode of The Resident.

This week on The Resident, a blood crisis causes problems at Chastain and Conrad resorts to extreme measures to save the life of a patient.

Seriously, one day that guy is going to wind up in the hospital himself because of how far he’s willing to go for people. Which, of course, is why we love him, but still! Let’s recap the 5 biggest takeaways from Season 2, Episode 21 of The Resident.

5. Mina and Austin are the cutest.

During an intense surgery in a hyperbaric chamber with a patient who needs blood badly in the midst of a shortage, Austin feels the effects of the confined space and exposure to gas. The effect, I believe they called it the “martini effect” makes him feel loopy, basically like he’s drunk. In his inebriated state, Mina pries into his personal life, having seen him talking to a woman earlier that morning. We learn Austin was trying to find out who his birth parents were.

His mother is a doctor, she and her dad are married and have three kids. They gave Austin up because she got pregnant while in med school and chose her career over being a mother, at the time.

I can’t imagine how Austin feels, but knowing that his birth family chose to give him up and yet went on to start a new family later must be a catastrophic discovery. Post-surgery, Mina gets Austin to open up further. He doesn’t feel he can be angry at her because every day he chooses his career over his personal life. Mina can be angry for him, she can carry that load instead so he doesn’t have to.
