The CW unveiled its new medical drama Emily Owens, M.D., on Tuesday night — and we want to know if the show’s fresh-faced interns have you hankering for weekly hospital visits.
But first, a brief refresher: Emily Owens is done with high school. She’s even finished med school. But when she starts her internship at Denver Memorial Hospital, she realizes you can never really escape the haunted hallways of your past. Insecurities continue to plague her as she crushes on her pal and fellow intern, Will (Justin Hartley). After she finally works up the nerve to tell him how she feels, he reveals that the romantic vibes aren’t mutual. Ouch! Then he starts to hit it off with their co-worker Cassandra (Aja Naomi King), who was Emily’s high school nemesis. Double ouch! The hospital also brings a new
playground bully tormentor in the demanding, no-nonsense Dr. Bandari (Necar Zadegan).
But there’s a light at the end of Emily’s long first day. She makes friends with intern Tyra (Kelly McCreary), who quickly confides in her about her feelings for a nurse. And the rules of TV logic tell us there must be another guy in the picture until Will wises up and realizes he does like our titular heroine. Enter Dr. Micah Barnes (Michael Rady), a cute resident who takes Emily under his wing.
