Who is this?! That's the big question after the Transplant season one finale on Tuesday, which ends with the recognition of Bash and his sister Amira a familiar face at the hospital reception. Amira immediately rushes to the Syrian and happily hugs her while a stunned bash watches. Then he too approaches.
"I thought you were dead," he says. And cut black. Argh!
Elsewhere in the finale, Bash goes to Claire to hear about Dr. Bishop who made a critical mistake with his patient that resulted in ruptured spleen and internal review. Bash reveals that he saw Bishop treating himself for post-concussive nausea. Claire noticed some problems too, but had no idea that his condition had progressed to vision problems. Claire confronts Bishop, who admits that the monitor turned foggy while leading Bash through the process. Claire notes that he promised them a future together, so he'd better call his neurosurgeon.
In the meantime, Dr. Bishop Bash that he wants to take full responsibility for the mistake before the board. Then his arm suddenly goes numb and he collapses after a possible stroke. The bishop's prospects seem dire as he is rushed for emergency surgery because of a possible aneurysm. Do you remember Bash drilling Bishop's head in the pilot? Well, Bash believes this could be the cause of Bishop's troubles. Mags assures Bash that what is happening is not his fault, and if anything, he saved Bishop's life. She hugs Bash and there is definitely a moment when it feels like they're kissing after pulling apart.
Sitting at the side of an unconscious bishop, Bash tells how he found his wounded father in Syria. "You have to go," his father ordered, so Bash left his father there to die, he shares in tears. Just like with Bishop, Bash blames himself for his father's death. But in this case, Bishop lives and unites with his son.
The incident spurs Bash to tell his sister the truth: he was too late to save her parents and therefore they are alone. The last thing her father said to him was to find Amira and build a future for both of them. That's how they came to Canada.
"We're not alone because of you. We're together because of you," says Amira sweetly.
As for the rest of the doctors, treating a terminally ill cystic fibrosis patient spurs Theo to make an unscheduled visit to his wife. He apologizes for taking the job without speaking to her and says he couldn't imagine life without his family. In the meantime, June is encouraged by her manager to apply for the position of chief resident.
What do you think of the transplant season finale? And do you hope that NBC will record the series for the second season (which has already been ordered in Canada)?
