‘The Resident’ Romances: Looking Ahead to Season 5
The Resident ended its fourth season with everyone, for the most part, in a good place. Sure, there are some lingering questions — Will Dr. Barrett Cain (Morris Chestnut) leave Chastain? How will Dr. Billie Sutton (Jessica Lucas) handle meeting the son she had after being raped as a young girl? — but we’re feeling pretty hopeful, especially when it comes to the relationships.
After all, Dr. Conrad Hawkins (Matt Czuchry) and nurse practitioner Nic Nevin (Emily VanCamp) kicked off the season with their wedding, while Dr. Irving Feldman (Tasso Feldman) and nurse Jessica Moore (Jessica Miesel) tied the knot in a much smaller, intimate ceremony. In the finale, Nic gave birth to her and Conrad’s daughter, while Dr. Jake Wong (Conrad Ricamora) and his husband Gregg (Christopher J. Hanke), after a heartbreaking bump in the road, finally adopted Sammie (Chedi Chang). (Plus, there’s good news: Sammie’s surgeries were successful.)
Meanwhile, after spending the season wondering when something would happen between Drs. Devon Pravesh (Manish Dayal) and Leela Devi (Anuja Joshi), they finally kissed in the finale. And with Joshi a series regular for next season (via Deadline), there’s no way that was a one-time thing.
But what about Drs. Kit Voss (Jane Leeves) and Randolph Bell (Bruce Greenwood)? And how about the broken-hearted Dr. AJ Austin (Malcolm-Jamal Warner) after his girlfriend, Dr. Mina Okafor (Shaunette Renée Wilson) returned to Nigeria?
We take a look at where all these relationships left off in Season 4 and speculate about what could be next below.
