‘The Night Shift’ Episode Guide (July 20): Passengers Become Sickened Mid-Flight

“Turbulence” (07/20/17) – Drew (Brendan Fehr), his mom (guest star Becky Ann Baker), and Rick’s (guest star Luke MacFarlane) flight home turns into a medical crisis at 35,000 feet when passengers become sickened one by one.

Jordan (Jill Flint), Paul (Robert Bailey Jr.), Shannon (Tanaya Beatty), Kenny (JR Lemon), and Cain (Mark Consuelos) spend their day off at an obstacle course fundraiser for Cystic Fibrosis, hosted by Akbar Gbajabjamila (“American Ninja Warrior”).

Meanwhile, Scott (Scott Wolf) finds himself on a Tinder date he won’t soon forget. And later, TC (Eoin Macken) puts his own life in danger to operate on a soldier.

NBC’s hit medical drama “The Night Shift” returns for a fourth season beginning June 22.

The night shift team of doctors and nurses at San Antonio Memorial’s emergency room are anything but ordinary. The risks they take to save lives straddle the line between heroic and impulsive, but are always worth it.

As season three concluded, the fate of the night shift was uncertain: Paul Cummings (Robert Bailey Jr.) led a staff walk-out after his father (guest star James McDaniel) bought the hospital and fired Topher Zia (Ken Leung). Overseas, TC Callahan (Eoin Macken) was left unconscious after a bombing on a refugee camp.

Season four picks up just 48 hours later with the crew navigating the consequences of their decisions. In Syria, TC (Eoin Macken) finds that suffering has no borders and channels his penchant for chaos into saving lives.

Back in Texas, Dr. Jordan Alexander (Jill Flint) takes charge to keep the ER running while treating more veterans and military personnel. Parenthood forces Drew Alister (Brendan Fehr) to re-evaluate his risk-taking behavior as an ER doctor and in the Army, while learning to raise a teenage daughter. Surgeon Scott Clemmens’ (Scott Wolf) personal life remains anything but easy, but that won’t stop him from diving headlong into his professional one.

Paul must deal with the repercussions of standing up to his father, and pave his own way. His rival-turned-girlfriend Shannon Rivera (Tanaya Beatty) and charge nurse Kenny Fournette (JR Lemon) will soon learn three’s a crowd in a one-bedroom apartment.

“The Night Shift” is produced by Sony Pictures Television. Gabe Sachs and Jeff Judah (“Freaks and Geeks” “Diary of a Wimpy Kid”) serve as executive producers and writers. Pierre Morel (“Taken”) was executive producer and director on the pilot episode.
