Parenthood is going to look at a variety of parents, or the parenting role, as the episode seems to focus mostly on Pratt who, as a new attending, is managing a very busy ER and all the patients, doctors and interns therein.
Incoming include two men injured in a welding tank explosion. One of them has a pregnant girlfriend who is grateful that the father of her baby is alive.
There is also a grandfather who brings in his grandson, the latter injured when a chain saw broke during the felling of a tree. The grandfather also has a close call, and later, the boy’s mother is angry at the grandfather for his negligence while the boy’s father, and the son of the grandfather, is a little more forgiving. Turns out the grandfather raised his own sons on his own.
It seems that Gates is the problem child, and although he claims to be right in a diagnosis, Pratt says he is missing the point, but we don’t know what the point is.
Neela is assigned a new surgical medical student, Katey, who is cheerful and views a lot of situations through a sexual lens. The character previously known as Rosenfeld is now Crenshaw, and he continues his obnoxious ways. Katey makes an observation about Crenshaw that Neela enjoys, especially after, it seems, impressing him with … assisting Pratt through a tracheotomy in the ER. As Neela and Katie depart the ER, and Katey’s observations about Crenshaw that give Neela some encouragement, Ray delivers some mail that has come to her old apartment. One of the letters is a check – a death benefit – from the Army for Gallant’s death, and Neela’s great day comes to an end.
Ray delivers the mail to Neela and there is an awkward moment between them. But in the delivery, he also meets Katey who, after Ray leaves, notes to Neela how cute Ray is.
Later, in a coming episode, Katey has a minor burn of some sort and Ray takes care of her and she suggests they go to a newly remodeled bar that evening.
Sam is at work but is seems the school called her to say that Alex had ditched school. At some point, Sam reaches Alex on the phone and tells him he has ten minutes to get back to the school. Later, she meets up with Luka who asks if she found Alex. Sam tells Luka that Alex had skipped school to go to the mall with a friend. Luka jokes that such behavior is something he has to look forward to.
In an episode-long arc, Morris attends a soccer game where his biological son, Max, is playing. He’s cheering Max wildly, and Max reciprocates the friendship. However, Max’s mother interprets Morris’ actions as those of a sexual predator, and another man at the game, the father of an opponent, helps Max’s mother challenge Morris. An altercation finds the man stumbling over an ice chest and hitting his head on the bleachers, and a friend of Max’s mother having a sprained wrist after slugging Morris. Max finally owns up to the situation after the police are called and show up at the ER.
Abby first attends a class for parenting but discovers that the room is full of mothers who dress their babies in designer clothes, some of which actually match those of their mothers. The instructor challenges Abby with the type of carrier she is using, saying that the baby may suffer hip and spinal injury. The other mothers are quite rude and Abby challenges them for their behavior now, noting that as an ER doctor, she’ll have to take care of their children’s overdoses and pregnancies when the babies are 14. Later, Abby interviews potential nanny’s and is not impressed with the “ethics” of the current candidates.
Luka attends to several of the emergencies in the earlier part of the episode, including the grandson injured in the chainsaw accident. The boy is quite serious but Luka assures the grandfather that the boy is a fighter, and it appears the boy does pull through. Later, after being assured by Pratt that things are under control, Luka seems to leave in order to give Abby a break with the baby chores.
In a later episode, Abby is back to work, seemingly the overnight shift. She leaves a message for Luka, telling him she works until 7am and to give her a call. The others are also are waiting word from Luka who is attending his trial for malpractice. During the summation from Luka’s lawyer, the plaintiff has his children escorted into the courtroom. In this future episode, Chaz, Pratt’s half brother, comes to the ER to meet Pratt.
Back in this episode, Jane is back and Pratt has bad feelings about it. No sign of Kerry.
