'The Resident': Conrad Is Haunted by Lily's Death in Heart-Pounding Sneak Peek (Exclusive)
By Philiana Ng
The Resident is back on call.
On Monday's return episode, titled "Haunted," senior resident Dr. Conrad Hawkins (Matt Czuchry) is taking the death of cancer patient Lily (Violett Beane) hard. As a result, he's painfully reliving every major moment and decision made in the final days of her life -- including Lily's last pleas for help and Dr. Lane Hunter's (Melina Kanakaredes) unethical over-treatment.
ET exclusively debuts the opening scene from the episode, where Conrad attempts to take the stress and anger off by running through town, nearly getting hit by a taxi cab and crashing into a bicyclist, the latter causing him to twist his ankle.
When he arrives at Chastain Park Memorial Hospital, a fellow doctor implores Conrad to undergo some tests since he looks like "he got hit by a truck." Conrad refuses, even though he could probably use the rest. "I said I'm fine!" he insists, though his limp and raggedy white shirt suggest otherwise. Something tells us he's about to wreak some havoc. Watch the exclusive clip below.
ET spoke exclusively with Beane following Lily's devastating death in the March 26 episode, where she reflected on her time on the show and also teased a return appearance.
"When I first read it, it was pretty intense," Beane said of Lily's final scene, adding later that she was aware her character would be at death's door. "Because it ties into other characters' arcs, it was kind of interesting knowing that. It was bittersweet, because you know when the end is coming."
"I loved playing Lily because she has a softness about her that I haven't really played in other characters. She has a real innocence and a real selflessness, which I think is magical and really sweet," the 21-year-old actress added. "Being that she's the only other patient that Conrad has lost, it's going to have a huge impact on him, so I think you're going to be seeing Lily soon."
The Resident returns Monday, April 16 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Fox.
