Dr. Rhodes treats his mentor and Goodman faces personal issues in the Season 1 finale. Also: April deals with a disorderly patient; Dr. Manning’s past catches up with her; and Sarah’s graduation day arrives, but she remains conflicted about her future.
I’m not going to lie – I was a tad disappointed with this finale.
It seemed like nothing much happened except manoeuvring another roadblock between Will and Natalie. I have shipped them since the first episode but I knew the moment when we had Will kiss her and declare his feelings that TPTB were moving them too fast and there wouldn’t be a happy resolution any time soon. I wanted at least a whole season of Will pining for her and then maybe Natalie finding out about his feelings at the end of the season. When that didn’t happen I wanted Will to take the job in California and then have Natalie realise how much she needs/misses him. Alas it wasn’t to be.
The end of the Downey/Rhodes storyline was as expected, Choi/the parrot was cute and I feel mildly sorry for April and Goodwin given their respective bad news. Overall though it wasn’t a strong end to the season.
