If there's ever an award for a show's most dynamic character, the statuette has to go to Nurse Lucy Elkins. God, has she evolved from the naive, co-dependent nurse.
Death, debasement, fires, fights, flashbacks - if this all sounds like a lot of action for 55 minutes, it is.
I guess, like Nurse Elkins, I, too, was easily charmed.
The flashback was cool in the sense that it was interesting to see how exactly Thack ended up working at the Knickerbocker Hospital.
The three themes of sex, parenting, and power combine in the chilling title scene.
Stirring words on paper, but Lucy's monologue makes the scene dramatically lopsided to the point of didacticism-complicated only by Soderbergh's decision to juxtapose two fixed perspectives at play.
Amid all the rattle and hum, the best and most moving scene of the episode was its quietest.
What [the] episode served up... was a reminder of how The Knick is, at least right now, circumventing all conventions of our storytelling expectations.
It's also now, with the penultimate episode of its second season, a show where three separate people wanted John Hodgman dead.
