Season 5 finale recap

The finale of The Resident season 5 aired on May 17, 2022, and was titled All Neon Moon. It was directed by Rob Corn alongside Amy Holden Jones and Andrew Chapman as writers.

The episode opened with a flashback to when Conrad and Nic first hired Marion to babysit Gigi to take their day out. Meanwhile, Irving tried to tell Devon to talk to Leela as Devon had decided to leave.

A pregnant woman, who presumably had pulmonary edema, came in with her son. She was having a heart failure and her heart wasn't strong enough to pump for her and the baby.

However, the doctors had a radical proposal that would surely fail and still result in death for the pregnant woman and/or her baby. Leela and Padma headed out to get checked out and find out if Padma was pregnant, which she was.

Cade discharged herself and went to meet up with her father, who wanted to do the same after his fall. Conrad felt Ian had an ulcer but wanted him to have more tests. He then talked to Winston about grief and Nic because he had experienced something similar with his partner. He told him to embrace the memories.

Cade discovered that her father had pancreatic cancer, who didn't know and they had to perform surgery on him because it was operable and only Bell could do it.

Meanwhile, Billie had a flare up but his vision was fine so he was cleared for the OR. Mrs. Alvarez's flu led to her marcoditis and her heart coulen't beat for two so AJ and Devon recommended ending the pregnancy. But the husband opted to put his wife on ECMO despite the complications and risks resulting in her death.

Cade confided in Conrad, and he comforted her while telling her about how things were with his father once. He hugged Cade and reflected on that memory of Nic where she saw him hugging someone who got the wrong idea, and when he explained they talked about how much they loved each other.

Cade thanked Billie for saving her father and thought his cancer might be gone. The two then talked about how they had feelings for Conrad. Devon reminded Conrad to make new memories and Conrad thought about how he made Nic promise that she'd find love again if something happened to him and she did the same.
