Dawn Budge returns, who seeks recuperative surgery from Sean and Christian over a series of unfortunate events that has included an eagle mauling her face. Meanwhile, Annie and Eden start to form a sisterly bond, which unnerves Sean. When Annie gets expelled from her new school after being caught in a compromising sexual position with a boy student (after Eden's secret encouraging), Sean cannot convince the skeptic Julie or Oliva about the sociopath/evil seductress Eden's true dangerous colors. Meanwhile, Christian continues his secret male escort moonlighting and meets a disturbed woman, named Gwen, who has some unorthodox sexual means, while Christian also questions his faith when a nun shows up at his office for a breast downsizing. Also, a new menacing character is introduced as 'the Stooler' who sexually violates patients by posing as a proctologist. Written by Anonymous

Did You Know?


When Dawn calls the doctors into the recovery room she has the words "Bird Flu?" written on her chalkboard. As they leave the room she puts the chalkboard down, and you can see that it has "Who do I have to screw around here to get a smoothie?" written on it, a phrase she had written down in a previous scene. However, if you look closely you can see that she has two chalkboards, one behind the other. See more »
