An unidentified man arrives at the hospital with critical injuries after being struck by a subway train, and the Hope Zion doctors rally together to try to save his life. Dr. Charlie Harris’ (Michael Shanks) personal medical struggle is overshadowed by a spiritual one when he discovers the John Doe is “The Great” Randal Crane (Peter Keleghan, Murdoch Mysteries). In spirit form, Randal delivers a dire warning about Charlie’s gift and its heavy cost if he doesn’t rid himself of it. Dr. Maggie Lin (Julia Taylor Ross) attempts to leave her past behind her, but it proves impossible when Dr. Sydney Katz (Stacey Farber) comes back to town, urging Maggie to put her pregnant sister in the now-defunct cancer study. Away from the hospital in the wake of her mother Martha’s (Jennifer Dale, What Would Sal Do?) diagnosis, Dr. Alex Reid (Erica Durance) takes Martha to visit their family farm.
That was the plan, originally, and when it was going to start in January. The season/show would be over by now. Maybe they have too many things scheduled over the next month so just decided to air the rest of it alongside the summer shows.
Looks like they're starting to undo all the crazy drama from the first half. I wouldn't expect Charlie and Alex to immediately be together again, but Randall and Martha gave them a nudge in that direction.
