The Resident Season 3 Episode 11 Recap:
Episode 11 is titled ‘Free Fall’ and it is mostly about Conrad and the aftermath of him being fired from Chastain. He wonders what he is when he is not a doctor and this emotion pushes him further into gloom and melancholy. Finn steps in to offer the much-required moral support and boost Conrad’s positivity.
The two then go on a zero-gravity adventure and Conrad starts realizing his potential. Meanwhile, Chief of Surgery, Cain, accompanied by Logan, launches the new commission-based pay system, explaining: “The more procedures, biopsies, test diagnostic surgeries you do, the more money you’ll make.”
AJ does not support this policy as he is aware that it would “lead to rampant over-treatment.” On the other hand, a pulmonologist performs a procedure for one of Devon’s patients and when this causes aspiration pneumonia, it poses a danger to the patient’s life.
AJ and Cain have an argument regarding a high-risk procedure to treat Annie. After agreeing to go through the surgery, AJ and Nic inform Annie about all the involved risks. After the process, AJ reminds Cain of a surgeon’s responsibility by saying: “We cut people open. We inflict wounds to make them better. They trust us with their lives. And I don’t cut for the sake of cutting. I don’t do it for the prestige or the cash or the stats or the RVUs. I do it for the patients.”
Toward the end, we see Conrad with a new resolution of not giving up so easily. He says: “These Red Rock people, you’re going to have to bring more than a slingshot to this fight. It’s going to get ugly. For all of us. I just want to make sure you know what we’re up against.”
