In the season finale, entitled “Pink Clouds” (Sept. 13), Charlie, out of coma, goes into full recovery mode, undertaking physiotherapy training to learn how to walk again. Charlie presses on as questions surrounding his relationship with Alex surface. With the same determination that once made her Chief Surgical Resident, Alex takes charge of the situation â€“ pressing onward. But while charting the course of her own life, she is faced with the grim task of telling a bride-to-be that she is going to die. Meanwhile, Joel (Daniel Gillies) is also tasked with making difficult decisions when a young man is brought in with a heroin overdose. While examining track marks on the patientâ€™s arms, Joel and Maggie (Julia Taylor Ross) make a shocking discovery: the patient has necrotizing fasciitis â€“ flesh-eating disease. They rush him into the O.R. where Joel prepares to amputate above the infection, but the disease is advancing faster than heâ€™s ever seen. Incision after incision, Joel chases the bacteria up the arm but he canâ€™t find a clean margin. Under extreme pressure, Joel must improvise if he is going to save this young manâ€™s life.
