Next week’s Saving Hope features the return of Daniel Gillies, who took the last episode off to presumably film an episode of his other show The Originals. From the episode’s description, it seems that Joel and Alex are having a bit of a hard time finding the time to spend together. We also get the return of Lexa Doig.
Here is what’s in store for episode 8 “The Heartbreak Kid” as summarized by CTV:
Dr. Joel Goran (Daniel Gillies) and Dr. Alex Reid (Erica Durance) try to make dinner plans – but not before Joel gets wrangled into working a day at the street clinic. It proves to be more than he bargained for when a chatty, recovering addict, Teddy (Damien Atkins), graces him with her presence – and an ever changing medical story. Joel has to use his street smarts to try and rescue Teddy before time runs out. Alex and Dr. Charlie Harris (Michael Shanks) try to find a new groove as coworkers when an injured 13-year-old girl arrives after falling off a roof, and things would move a lot faster if her love-addled spirit kept quiet and let Charlie focus on his job. Dr. Sydney Katz’s (Stacey Farber) practice exam on Dr. Maggie Lin (Julia Taylor Ross) has Maggie facing hospital wide embarrassment – which she must put aside when David Zarb (Joris Jarsky) returns to Hope Zion Hospital for one special hello and an emotional goodbye. The episode also guest stars Michael Shanks’ wife and actress Lexa Doig as Selena Quintos.
“The Heartbreak Kid” will air Wednesday December 3, 2014 at 10pm ET/PT.
