Charlie lands a new gal pal on Saving Hope

I’ve had a couple of readers comment they don’t like the up and down between Alex and Charlie during this final season of Saving Hope. They’ve commented about Alex smooching with Manny and how Charlie is being left in the cold. Well, Charlie gets his smooch on this Sunday courtesy of guest star Kristen Lehman, who plays someone from Charlie’s past. She’s not the only guest on Sunday: What Would Sal Do? co-star Jennifer Dale drops by in a memorable role as Martha, Alex’s mother.

Here’s what CTV says about Sunday’s episode “Doctor Robot,” written by Adriana Maggs and directed by James Genn:

When Dr. Alex Reid (Erica Durance) gets a call that her alarm is going off, she arrives home to an unexpected surprise. Then, with one of the participants in her cancer trial with Dr. Maggie Lin (Julia Taylor Ross) not responding to medication, Alex and Maggie are forced to turn to Dr. Charlie Harris (Michael Shanks), the newly-appointed Chief of Surgery, for his opinion when they can’t agree on a method of treatment. Meanwhile, Dr. Zach Miller (Benjamin Ayres) is reluctantly transitioning the E.R. to an Urgent Care facility, until a patient who challenges societal conventions persuades Zach not to settle for second best. 

And, as always, a few more hints from us.

We love Jennifer Dale
If you haven’t seen her in CraveTV’s hilarious What Would Sal Do?, check her out there before Saving Hope on Sunday. She makes an immediate impact on Alex’s life in a surprising and funny way—she has opinions about Charlie—before things get very serious.

Cassie and Dev are having troubles
He wanted to keep things casual between them, but now that’s he’s gotten his way he’s not happy with that either. Dev needs to seriously make up his mind. Meanwhile, Thomas has got big plans for Cassie, but is she interested?

A patient makes an impact on Charlie
A man who is acting very unlike himself causes Charlie to rethink his decisions of late.

Saving Hope airs Sundays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CTV.

  1. Even more curious about Lehman’s character knowing she has a past with Charlie. He and Alex are inevitably endgame, so hoping they don’t go too far before getting back to each other. I think Alex’s mother will play an important role in that over the next few episodes.

  2. I hate that they have split up Charlie and Alex. Not the same feel to the show. I’ll watch to the end to see if it gets resolved but, I don’t like it at all.

  3. The latest Alex splitting with Charlie because of a “pact with God to stay away” -is so utterly and completely ridiculous. Too bad – such a great show is ending with such a contrived storyline. It would have done better to have Alex fade away and focus on the other great characters that are so much more interesting. I for one am rooting for Charlie to end up with someone new. I will endure Alex to the end of the show, but only because I love the other characters. (Oh, and the episode that tried to convince us that Alex was a” badass” was so laughable, I almost gave up on the show then and there).
