Spoilers for 'Nurses' Season 1 Episode 1 titled 'Incoming'
It is a busy day for the staff of St Mary's, a busy downtown Toronto hospital. But even more hectic for the batch of new nurses who are tasked with a horrific, mass public accident on their very first day. But Grace Knight (Tiera Skovbye), Ashley Collins (Natasha Calis), Keon Colby (Jordan Johnson-Hinds), Nazneen Khan (Sandy Sidhu), and Wolf Burke (Donald Maclean Jr) all manage to get through and emerge strong. The chaos of their first day in the ER aside, the nurses had time to bond with each other, and with some others outside the group. Yes, we're talking about Grace and her new friendship with Dr Evan Wallace (Ryan-James Hatanaka). We don't know about you, but we got major romance vibes from their light flirting in the premiere episode, and just know it that they will become an item sooner or later.
Early on in the episode, Grace and Dr Evan are working with a patient who comes in with needing blood. Evan readily agrees to help with his as waiting for the new stock of the rare blood type will risk the loss of life. During this scene, the two engage in some flirting that has us wondering if they will get together in Season 1. When Grace asks him for his history, Evan plays along and says, "Oh you want my sexual history". When Grace, also coy, says that it is standard protocol before a blood transfusion, they joke further.
They discuss their "history" and Evan asks her why she left the General and moved to ER. Grace's dodges the question and says that she must rush to check after the patient, "I assume you can find your own juice and cookies," she says before leaving. In this dialogue, there was a mention of a certain Dr Hamilton who supposedly gave Grace a glowing recommendation. The nurse stiffened after that mention and rushed the interaction to a shut. Could he have to do with Grace's past?
Mysteries aside, we totally think Evan and Grace will see their professional relationship blossom into romance. Very soon, they're going to be the talk of the hospital. "The way that that relationship blossom is such a wonderful thing," Skovbye said in an interview ahead of the show's premiere. "Even though it doesn't start off romantic for the first little while, I don't think that that necessarily matters because what they developed and the advice and the care that he gives her along the way is something that she really needs at such a pivotal point in her life," she added.
So there is definitely something that will be brewing there. We'll just have to wait to find out. 'Nurses' airs on Mondays at 10/9c on NBC.
