Chet Brooks, a born charmer, bright, attractive, witty, works in Nirvana spa and has a girl on every finger, including colleague Sunshine whose burly boyfriend is a masseur there. Chet looks up Jack, his med class mate till he dropped out without academic reason, borrows his bright new sports car, and has a deadly accident driving it to an important appointment with Lori, another former girlfriend, who seems turns out to be connected with a Detroit mobster's bookie racket. While Amanda gets furious nobody takes her word, least of all Norman Briggs, who checks up an doctors covering for absent colleagues, she remembers two goons were looking for 'a friend' a day earlier after the thugs roughed up poor Jack, who gets several more utterly undeserved beatings in the valiant course of the investigation, which Mark starts at Nirvana and proves there was more to Chet then pleasingly met the eye...

Chet gets checkmated...and a freaky coincidence
22 December 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First things first...I was freaked out when I learned this episode, Nirvana, originally screened on the same day Kurt Cobain's body was discovered following his suicide a few days earlier - the date of screening and Mr Cobain's body being found? 8 April 1994.

In this episode, Chet is a medical school dropout and also a hustler who gets into trouble with a Detroit mob boss. It just happens the mob boss checked into the Nirvana health resort and that's where Chet was working in more ways than one. He was working his charm on a couple of employees and swindled them of thousands of dollars.

The ending was a big twist and Jack displays his courage to confront Chet.
