Feeling stepped on
When she confronts Jerry all she hears is he’s expandable. And he needs to protect her.
We find out his brother died. And that makes him very protective. But still the pain is there.
Carter is no different
Nancy soon finds out Carter is going with her husband. And she feels betrayed by all the men around her.
As Jerry gets the team ready to go in, Nancy goes to see her daughter at her gymnastics meet.
Where her daughter asks her about the monkeys – and she tries to sooth her by telling her it will be taken care of.
But family fun time ends too soon
Watching her daughter run off to her meet, she gets beeped. Oh, how I feel old as I remember the days of beepers.
Nancy’s day just keeps getting worse
Getting a page from Peter of all people, she finds out the worker in the hospital tests positive for Ebola.
Dealing with Rhodes
After going to tell Rhodes, he still wants to keep it quiet as to not start a panic.
I guess I do see that. Again them taking all things into real consideration in the show.
Finding a middle ground
She does however talk him into helping her round up all the doctors and staff who worked with him, to draw blood panels.
Visiting her dad
In another tear filled scene… They cried. Not me. Promise.
Ok, I did.
He tells her how much he loves her and to keep fighting.
He also tells her she should give Jerry a chance… Because although he also always wanted to protect her, it didn’t mean he didn’t believe in her.
The AIDS virus
I love how this show keeps reiterating and comparing the Ebola crisis to the Aids crisis.
And mentioning how people in that time wouldn’t even get close to people with aids. Just like those who have become paranoid.
Like Jerry and Ben’s wife.
As an avid campaigner for animals rights – even though they used them for lab work… I love how much Frank and Humbolt care about how the monkeys were suffering and starving to death.
Bruce’s wife even mentions how horrible it is to test on animals. High five to her.
Going back again to Carter and Rhodes past
Going back to the hospital with the nurses, Carter and Rhodes find out that the hospital had been quarantined.
And many of the patients and nurses. All but one died due to bad sterilization practices
They also meet an aide worker named Melinda Danport (played by Grace Gummer), who happens to end up marrying Rhodes.
Going to find one of the missing patients
Talking Rhodes into going to another village, even though they have a sample.
The two of them and Melinda, go and find her, and find her dying a horrible death. But her son looking healthy.
My final thoughts
I love this show so much. It has a great mix of drama, excitement and fear all in one.
