An apartment fire on Code Black Season 2 brought some families into Angels Memorial and it definitely did not end well for some of them! Elliot had to try and revive a baby and Willis was making promises he could not fulfill on Code Black on CBS 2017. Check out the details from Episode 13 tonight below in our Code Black Season 2 recap!
Last week on Code Black on CBS 2017, one of the big stories of the night was a college basketball team was looking for a resident. Mario really wanted it, but then saw Angus talking to the athletic director and thought he would get it and it made them fight all episode. In the end, Leanne gave it to Noa! Guthrie went to a surgeon and his doctor about doing some experimental surgery for his Parkinson’s, but he did not want to do it and said he was not ready. Then we saw Willis and Noa work with a little girl that was autistic and they ended up using a phone app to help treat her! Leanne also went against Campbell’s wishes and used the hospital helicopter to reunite a family, which just happened to save the father’s life!
Warning: This post contains spoilers from Code Black tonight on CBS, so stop reading now if you don’t want to know what happened!!!
We start with Guthrie and we see his hands shaking. He is talking with Campbell and it looks like he will become the chaplain for the hospital, so he is coming back to Angels Memorial. Campbell questions him about the surgery and if he will do it, as he is a good candidate and he might not be soon enough. Guthrie said he is not doing surgery.
Out in the ER, we have an apartment fire and the families are coming in. It looks like Malaya is back also, so her suspension is done? There is a lady screaming and in restraints, but she is looking for a baby. There is an angry guy that comes in and he is looking for a baby too, as the kid started the fire and burned down his building! One guy had a heart attack, but Willis said there is not time and he needs surgery. They have to reset his daughter’s foot (Paula) and tell him they are taking him up to the OR. They found the one lady’s baby. She is speaking another language, but Willis understands “babies” and there are two of them (twins), so another one is missing.
Guthrie is on the phone and said they only brought them one baby, so the other one went to another hospital. Now we see Paula freaking out and she said she needs to see her father. She said they fought and she does not want the last thing she said to him to be this. Willis said he’ll check and tells someone to get an update, but Paula said she wants him to and wants Willis to tell him she is sorry.
In the OR, we see Campbell talking with Heather and the surgeon wanting to do Guthrie’s surgery. They don’t understand why he won’t do it and Heather asked if they’ve ever asked him why he doesn’t want it? That might help, as he might have a reason.
We see Guthrie tell Leanne that they found the other baby and they are bringing them now. They are alive, but non-responsive. A worker for the mother asked if they want her to tell the mom and Leanne said not now.
We now see another kid (Jared) come in, which the building owner said that is the kid that burned his building down! The kid’s father comes and the owner said his father always leaves him alone and the kid has to cook and the smoke alarm goes off every week! The landlord said the father’s neglect did this and if anyone dies, it is on him! The kid is saying he did not do this.
We have another lady that seems to be crashed on blood pressure medicine. Malaya is trying to revive her. Paula has crashed also, as she got up to see her father. She opened her abdomen laceration and her abdomen is filled with blood. They get her settled and send her up to the OR.
The other baby comes in and they take her to a chamber. Elliot is working on the baby and freaking out, as Guthrie gives him instructions from outside the chamber. Noa is there also to help out, as the baby flatlines and he needs to do compressions on Code Black Season 2! He keeps trying, but no luck and Guthrie said he has to call it. Elliot does not want to, but he does and wants out of the chamber. They have to decompress it, so he has to wait an hour. Guthrie said he wished he could have helped, as he is crying and shaking! Such a sad, sad moment.
Willis heads into the OR with Campbell for the surgery on Paula. Then we see Leanne tell the mother that they could not save the second baby (more tears)! Mario is working on Jared and the kid asked how many people died. Jared confesses that he was playing with firecrackers on the roof and he started the fire. He said all these people are dead because of him.
Elliot is still in the chamber and now Guthrie has to go see someone, so Noa said she’ll stay with Elliot. Angus is now talking to another mother, who has scars on her wrists. She tried to kill herself, but the pills she took slowed her breathing and she couldn’t inhale as much smoke. Her trying to kill herself actually saved her life, so she needs to take this and enjoy life with her son.
Paula is out of surgery and she talks with Willis. It seems her father is a preacher and she said she wants to go to New York and perform on Broadway. Her dad said if she wants to sing, sing for God. She said they fought and he needs to know she is sorry, which Willis said he’ll take her up in ten minutes.
Leanne talks with the mother again. She said she may have lost her daughter, but her son is alive and they have each other. Jesse brings the baby over, but the mother doesn’t want to hold him! She said no and her daughter is dead and is crying. She can’t see her son!
Guthrie goes to the preacher father, as he needs someone to pray with. The father knows something is bothering Guthrie and gives him advice. Guthrie said he has a son, but they are not close. He has been reaching out to him, but he won’t talk. He wants to talk with him about the surgery. Guthrie said he is scared. The father asked if he believes in God and Guthrie said yes. The father said he has nothing to worry about then. The father starts coughing up blood and his vitals drop and he has to go back to the OR.
We see Willis and Campbell talk and the father did not survive! Now Willis has to tell Paula about her father’s death. She is not happy, as Willis was too busy for her and he promised her. She now thinks her father will never know how she feels. Willis said that is not true, but Paula tells him to leave.
We see the boy of the mother who tried to commit suicide. Malaya tells Guthrie to talk to him, but he said he can’t, but why? We now see Jared tell his father that he started the fire and his father is pissed and he now needs to hire an attorney. The landlord comes up and he said no, as he did not start the fire. The fire started in the basement because of faulty wiring and it was his fault. He apologized for yelling at the father.
Guthrie talks with Elliot, who is not doing good after the baby’s death. Elliot said he has to leave and he can’t do this. Guthrie said this is his calling and if he quits, he’ll regret it.
Angus checks on the mother who tried to commit suicide. She is full of blood, as she slit her wrists! They are working on her and then they show Guthrie, who is in his own world. All of a sudden we hear Leanne and Campbell and everyone telling Guthrie to open his eyes. He then opens his eyes and appears to be in the OR and had the surgery, as Leanne is telling him to open his eyes!
It looks like it is a week later and he elected for the surgery. Leanne asks him some questions, which he answered before the surgery. As it turns out, it looks like the entire episode was a reflection on Guthrie’s personal life. Being married and losing a baby to carbon monoxide. His father being a preacher. His wife killing himself.
Yes, this whole episode was in Guthrie’s head and based on his surgery and him being out of it. He finally wakes up from surgery and everyone is there. Guthrie talks about his son not being there, but he is there! Guthrie tells his son the whole story of having a twin that died. He said he could not handle losing his daughter and his wife was struggling and he saw it, but couldn’t help her. He said he failed his son, but his son said he didn’t fail him and he loves him too! Yeah, more tears there from me!
