Saving Hope returns with back-to-back episodes for its two-hour mid-season premiere. Below, check out the episode description and stills for “The Parent Trap” (3.11) and “Hearts of Glass” (3.12).
The Parent Trap (3.11)
In Part 1 of SAVING HOPE’s two-hour mid-season premiere, Dr. Alex Reid (Erica Durance) gears herself up for a night home alone, but an emergency phone call has her playing “aunty Alex” to Dr. Dana Kinney’s (Wendy Crewson) daughter, Molly Kinney (Eliana Jones, HEMLOCK GROVE). Dana barges to Alex’s condo, where Alex gets a taste of the push-and-pull between mother’s and teenage daughters, before asking Dana a very important question of her own. Meanwhile, Dr. Charlie Harris (Michael Shanks) faces a tough fight night of his own when two female MMA fighters go for Round 2 in Dr. Zach Miller’s (Ben Ayres) ER. In spite of their tough exteriors, Charlie must gain the trust of one fighter if he is going to be able to save her limb…and life. Plus, a foster mother places her heart in Dr. Dawn Bell’s (Michelle Nolden) hands, while her foster-daughter is keen on breaking hospital rules to keep the two of them together. Also, Dr. Maggie Lin (Julia Taylor Ross) discovers that the Hope Zion Hospital staff have been rated on “Grade Your MD.”
Hearts of Glass (3.12)
Part 2 of SAVING HOPE’s two-hour mid-season premiere continues when a donor heart becomes available, Dr. Alex Reid (Erica Durance) and Dr. Dawn Bell (Michelle Nolden) jump at the opportunity to provide the ailing Leila (Samantha Kaine) with her sorely needed replacement. Wanting the heart for himself, however, is the litigation‐happy Elliot Stout, who’s also on the transplant list. Ready to sue to get a heart, Elliot creates an ethical and legal dilemma for Hope Zion Hospital doctors with major repercussions. Dr. Charlie Harris (Michael Shanks) and Dr. Joel Goran (Daniel Gillies) meet a patient with exotic hardware implanted into his legs, only to discover that he’s risked his health by resorting to Medical Tourism in the hopes of lengthening his limbs. After falling asleep in surgery, Dr. Maggie Lin (Julia Taylor Ross) is having a hard time balancing studying for the boards and fulfilling her hospital duties. When a patient forces her to think outside the box, she enlists Dr. James Dey (Mac Fyfe) to get back on track. This episode of SAVING HOPE is directed by actor and director Jason Priestley (HAVEN, CALL ME FITZ) and guest stars Adamo Ruggiero (DEGRASSI: THE NEXT GENERATION).
“The Parent Trap”(3.11) and “Hearts of Glass”(3.12) will air back-to-back on Jan 7th.
