A helicopter crash on Code Black Season 2 sent some patients into Angels Memorial, which caused Leanne (Marcia Gay Harden) to go above Campbell in trying to reunite a family on Code Black on CBS 2017! Would the touch of a loved one save a family member’s life? Check out the details from Episode 12 tonight below in our Code Black Season 2 recap!
Last time on Code Black on CBS 2017, we saw Leanne try and talk Jesse into coming back to Angels Memorial, as she could talk Campbell into bringing him back. He said no, as he was working at a cosmetic surgery office now. From there, it was a blackout in Los Angeles and the generators were not working, so a code black and a blackout! Turns out one of Jesse’s patients had some issues during surgery, so of course they needed to come to Angels Memorial! This all lead to him getting his job back and life is good again!
Warning: This post contains spoilers from Code Black tonight on CBS, so stop reading now if you don’t want to know what happened!!!
Willis is out on an ambulance ride along and it looks like a chopper went down from a cruise and it has caused a mess on the highway. At Angels, there is a college basketball team there looking for a resident, which Mario wants. However, he sees Angus talking to the athletic director and thinks he’ll get it because of his dad. Willis calls Leanne and said he is sending in a mess from the cruise.
The ambulances arrive and patients are coming from the crash. One guy said his family is still on the cruise and wants to call them. We have a lady named Debbie and she is not looking good. Back at the scene, they are trying to get the helicopter pilot out, but he is melted to the seat! They have to cut him out and just in time, as the helicopter explodes while they run away!
Mario and Angus work on the guy and his belly is full of blood, so they are sending him to the OR. The seat was suffocating the pilot, so they had to work fast to remove it. They get it in time and his vitals are going up. Meanwhile, Elliot is working on a kid, who had a stapler thrown at him by a girl his was picking on. Her and her mother are there and his father is yelling at them. The kid says things got fuzzy and his head really hurts, so Elliot wants to do a CT scan and the dad complains and is yelling more. Campbell comes in and puts the guy in his place and tells Elliot to take care of things.
We see that Debbie did not make it, so Leanne is going to tell Brad, the other pilot. The other guy that came in from the cruise is out of surgery and Mario tells him they had to remove part of his intestines and will continue to monitor him. The guy said he can’t tell his wife that. His wife calls and he said he had his appendix removed and he’ll be fine!
Mario and Angus argue about the resident job at the college and everything gets handed to Angus. Leanne comes in and stops them.
We know see a little girl come in and she is scrambling all over the place. They want to restrain her, but Willis comes in and says they aren’t restraining her. He tries to calm her down and put oxygen on her, but she won’t take it. She can hear them, but not responding. Her mother comes in and said she ran away from her. The girl is autistic and responds to an app on the phone. She said she talks to the phone and TV and her stuffed animals, but she has never talked to her once. She is nine years old and has never talked to her mother! Her mother said she probably has pneumonia, as this would be her fourth time this year.
Leanne tells Brad about Debbie dying in surgery. Elliot tells Campbell about the kid’s CT scan and wants Campbell to help him tell him, since the dad is so rough. Campbell said he does all the job or none of it.
We see Dr. Guthrie talking with some doctors about a surgery that could help with his Parkinson’s. It is not a guarantee of helping and he might not even make it out of surgery, but the surgeon said he is a good candidate. Guthrie said no and he is not ready for it on Code Black Season 2.
Elliot tells the father the son needs surgery and he could lose vision in the eye. Elliot said the surgery is in two hours, but the father wants it now. He gets in Elliot’s face, but Elliot stands up to him and the dad backs down. So, I guess he is okay with taking advantage of weak people, but get in his face and he backs down.
The autistic girl gets an irregular heartbeat and Willis wants to do an MRI on her stomach, but the mother said the girl won’t allow it. She said he is just like everyone else and has no clue and just needs to fix her. Willis asks Noa how good she is at technology and he has an idea!
We then see the guy from the cruise crashing and he is not doing well. Leanne tells them to check the helicopter about getting his family there before he dies! Leanne talks with Campbell and wants to send the hospital helicopter to get this guy’s family. He denies her and said his responsibility is this hospital. Leanne now talks with the cruise guy and he has DIC, which means they can’t stop his blood. She said they are doing everything they can, but it is irreversible. He asks how long he has and his wife is a day away. She said he just has to hold on.
Back to Willis, as Noa installed an app on his phone that makes his voice sound like the lady on the phone the little girl uses and talks to. It takes a couple calls, but the girl answers and she actually responds to Willis talking to her and the mother is shocked! However, the girl goes back to asking about the weather and Willis said this might take a while on Code Black on CBS 2017.
The fighting continues between Mario and Angus, so now Mama interrupts them and calls them out. He talks about chicken and eggs and said it is tough enough around here, so work together or they will end up like a couple of dead chickens.
Elliot brings the kid up to the OR and his dad said he will be ok. Before going in, the kid asks why his dad is such a jerk. The kid goes in and the dad asks Elliot if he is a jerk and Elliot said he is loud!
Back to the little girl and she is talking more, but then starts counting (which she does when she is in pain). They get her to point where it hurts, which is like upper abdomen. They said it could be her pancreas or spleen, as the girl is crashing and they rush to work on her!
The cruise guy is crashing and they can’t control the bleeding any more. Leanne said they better hurry, as the helicopter is coming with his family. Back to the little girl and Willis thinks it is cystic fibrosis and they have to do a test, which will take a few hours. Her mother asked how bad it is and he said better than not knowing.
The cruise guy’s family arrives and they send the son away. Leanne tells his wife that he might not wake up. She doesn’t know what to tell his dad, as neither of them can live without him.
Guthrie comes into Angels Memorial and talks with Jesse. Guthrie said he is doing better and he apologizes to Mama for putting him in the position he did. Jesse knew about the surgery and asked when he is having it, but Guthrie said he is not ready and has some unfinished business. Mama is not happy!
Angus and Mario talk and Angus said his dad wanted him to do it and he was calling every day, which made him feel good and he liked the attention. Mario said his father does not make him who he is and Angus has made himself into a good doctor.
We then see the kid and his dad, as he brought in the girl and her mother to apologize to them in front of his son, which is a good gesture.
Willis got the results for the autistic girl and it is CF. There is a medicine she can take to try and fix it all and she qualifies for it, so Willis said she is one in a million! He then gives the mom his phone and said to call her daughter, no apps. The girl answers and said she sounds different and sounds like her mommy! Yeah, I am crying there!
Now to the cruise guy, he wakes up and his family runs to him! It looks like he is doing better and the condition stopped. Campbell is not happy Leanne went above him, but she said there is no reason that man is living and a touch of his son’s hand saved him. She is not sorry and he can fire her. He said he will…tomorrow!
Angus and Mario are anxiously waiting for Leanne to tell them who she picked as the resident for the college team. She said she has made her decision and walks away. We then see Noa open her locker and she has the jacket for the team and her name is on it, so Leanne picked her!
