Joel Gideon


Episode Info

While driving home, Sean is broadsided by another car and rushed to the hospital. He was saved from major injury by his vehicle's safety devices, but his view of life has changed. Inspired by a patient, Joel Gideon (DOUG SAVANT), who suffered severe frostbite trying to conquer Mount Everest, Sean plans a shark-diving trip with Matt. Sean intends to prove to Matt--and himself--that he is not a wimp, but when a tragedy occurs on the boat before they can even get into the water, Sean ends up impressing Matt for much more important reasons. Meanwhile, Christian is overwhelmed by the prospect of losing Gina's son to the boy's biological father, James Sutherland (recurring guest star GEORG STANFORD BROWN), who is now demanding custody. Christian teams up with Gina and faces off with James and his inflexible wife through a mediator, with the very real possibility that a negative decision could devastate Christian emotionally. He must also deal with an astounding revelation from Julia.
