‘The Resident’ Season 5 Finale: Nic Is ‘the Heart of the Whole Episode’

Dr. Conrad Hawkins (Matt Czuchry) hasn’t been the only one in need of closure since losing his wife, Nic (Emily VanCamp), after a car accident early this season. VanCamp returns for flashbacks that will “give the audience the thing they’ve been yearning for,” promises The Resident executive producer Andrew Chapman.

Throughout the moving Season 5 finale, Conrad has recurring memories of Nic — specifically a night shortly after their daughter Gigi was born — and “desperately” tries to figure out their meaning. “It’s the heart of the whole episode, and, in a way, the entire season. It’s about dealing with grief and life moving forward,” Chapman says.
