CBS's newest medical sitcom has had a lot of hiccups over its first season, with episode delays leading to a fair number of repeats. Now, it takes its winter break but is expected to return in the New Year with all new episodes, inching closer to the day that Drew (Thomas Middleditch) gets the kidney replacement surgery that's putting his life through the wringer. Before that happens, however, there will be two repeat episodes released during the winter.

Episode 4, 'High Risk Factor', left things in a good place between Drew and his organ donor, Gina (Annaleigh Ashford). Drew, however, is worried about Gina's recklessness, to the point where he tracks her through an app. The two of them managed to reach a compromise where Drew treats Gina like an adult who can make her own choices, as long as Gina promises to stop giving Drew minor heart attacks with reckless acts such as weekend skydiving. It's about the best compromise the two can hope for.

What the show hasn't picked up on, yet, is the subplot between Drew and his ex-wife Julia (Sarah Rue). The two officially began their divorce proceedings in Episode 3, but by the end of the episode the two ended up in bed together after Drew visited her while high. The two claimed that this would be the last time they slept together, but the last scene of the episode saw them winding up in bed together. For a divorced couple, the two don't seem to be able to keep away from each other. Will the two eventually find a way to get back together, with Gina acting as an inadvertent Cupid? Fans are going to have to wait until January 2021 to find out.  

'B Positive' will continue to air over the next two weeks, but those episodes will be reruns, with the show's pilot episode airing on December 24, and the show's second episode, 'Die Alysis' airing on December 31. The show will return with new episodes on January 7 at 8.30 pm ET on CBS.
