complicated
29 August 2015 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Disillusioned Dr. John Ellison (Jason O'Mara) saves a child during a gangland shootout and kills one of the attackers. Antoine is still targeted and he hides him with the help of nurse Gretchen Polk (Jessica Szohr). Antonine's father is a gangleader in prison and he threatens John with the help of his underling Darius Bishop. Unbeknowst to John, Gretchen is deep in a fraud scheme at the hospital with her friend Jed. Dr. O'Neill is suspicious. John is attacked at home and detective Holden of the Gang Task Force is digging. Even John's wife is suspicious.

The problem of the show is that Ellison does unreasonable things. I was confused by his actions for the first several episodes. Then I change my mind and see him with serious mental health issues. His frustrations and inner anger cause his irrational ways. That excuses some of the problems of the show but not all of them. Jason O'Mara is the picture of intensity and the acting is generally good. The plot has a few too many complications piling on too quickly. A little simplification would really help.
