In tonight’s series finale, Monroe is finally forced to confront the painful truth about his past when a lively night shift at the hospital suddenly takes a darker turn. When a thirteen year old girl is admitted following a road accident, Monroe knows that there is little chance of saving her and an operation could leave her severely damaged. However, her father begs him to operate and give her a chance to live – whatever the consequences. Shepherd sees that Monroe is wavering and accuses him of allowing his emotions to cloud his judgement.

But Monroe is a father as well as a surgeon, and seeing this young girl makes his own pain come flooding back. Can Monroe save her, and will he ever be able to let go of his own grief and make peace with his family? Shepherd is still smarting from his break up with Bremner, but finds it impossible to avoid her at the hospital. When Monroe discovers that he is thinking about leaving, he begs Bremner to give his best friend a second chance, but Shepherd is not prepared for what Bremner has to tell him. Meanwhile, the competition between the trainees intensifies as the day of their assessments arrives. Springer is sure that Monroe wants to get rid of him, but Wilson has a surprise in store. Witney is frustrated when she loses out on a training opportunity to Mullery, but Mullery has bigger concerns as Fortune continues to feel the impact of her surgery.

Tonight Monroe’s life plunges further into chaos as he discovers that ‘civilized divorce’ is harder than he had ever imagined. As Anna starts a new life, Monroe is determined to show that he can move on too, but his attempts to enter the world of dating seem doomed to failure. At the hospital, Monroe is sure that surgery can help Brendan, a family man whose epileptic seizures have been getting worse. However, Brendan has other ideas: he firmly believes that God is talking to him during his seizures, and is reluctant to give up these powerful religious experiences, even if it means that his condition will deteriorate.

Monroe tries to persuade him to go ahead with the operation, but Brendan’s teenage daughter, Phoebe, accuses Monroe of being too arrogant to understand her father’s special closeness to God. Is Monroe right to try to persuade him, and what will Brendan decide to put his faith in? Witney and Mullery are unnerved by Bremner’s suspiciously good mood, but Monroe is sure that he knows her secret. Meanwhile, Witney struggles to prove that she isn’t judgemental, Bremner has to treat a young patient with a crush on her and Springer continues to infuriate Monroe.
