11"Pilot"Phillip NoyceAmy Holden Jones & Hayley Schore & Roshan SethiJanuary 21, 2018 (2018-01-21)1LAP018.65[1]
Randolph Bell, Chief of Surgery at Chastain Park Memorial Hospital, performs an appendectomy on a patient when an accident involving a tremor in his left hand leads to a severed artery. The patient bleeds out and the incident is covered up by the surgical team. Due to Randolph's high complication rate, his nickname is "HODAD"—Hands of Death and Destruction. Devon Pravesh reports for his first day as a resident intern; he is assigned to third-year resident Conrad Hawkins, who comes off as "impossible" to work with. Conrad and nurse practitioner Nic Nevin share a private moment in an on-call room, hinting at a romantic relationship. Lily Kendall, a recurrent leukemia patient who is beloved by the hospital staff, is admitted for an infection. A combative woman with endocarditis enters the ER and loses consciousness, giving Devon a chance to run his first code. During a live stream of a surgery in which Randolph operates using the Titian—an advanced robotic surgical tool—Conrad discovers that surgical resident Mina Okafor is actually performing the procedure, unbeknownst to the audience.
22"Independence Day"Phillip NoyceAmy Holden JonesJanuary 22, 2018 (2018-01-22)1LAP024.70[2]
Micah, a 28-year-old schoolteacher with a history of heart disease, collapses in his classroom as Conrad speaks to the students about his journey of becoming a doctor. He is taken to the hospital in need of a heart transplant. During a hunting accident with Randolph and Lane Hunter, Head of Oncology at Chastain Park Memorial Hospital, a congressman collapses due to heart complications and misfires his weapon, shooting one of the hospital's lobbyists. The congressman also needs a heart transplant which causes a confliction when a donor heart becomes available. A short-staffed ER forces Conrad to leave Devon to run the ER alone in what Conrad calls "Independence Day"; Devon quickly becomes overwhelmed with his duties. Lane discharges Lily despite concerns from Devon and Nic.
33"Comrades in Arms"Rob CornAndrew ChapmanJanuary 29, 2018 (2018-01-29)1LAP034.75[3]
A billing consultant is contracted to train staff on how to "upcode" procedures so the hospital can bill higher amounts; her presence causes friction between her and some of the staff. After she nearly kills a patient with an unneeded MRI, the consultant is fired. Randolph asks a colleague for advice on a hypothetical patient with a hand tremor; benzodiazepines are suggested as a last resort as the negative side effects can include aggression and cognitive impairment. Medical transport worker, Louisa Rodriguez, collapses from severe back pain and is diagnosed with a retroperitoneal sarcoma. It is found that she is uninsured and an undocumented immigrant, compelling Conrad and Devon to disobey hospital administration and find a surgical team willing to operate. Louisa's procedure is successful, but her rehab will cost the hospital $2 million. Jude Silva—an attending surgeon who previously worked alongside Conrad in the Marine Corps—conveys his frustrations to Conrad about the bureaucracy of medicine and tries to convince Conrad to re-enlist in the military with him.
44"Identity Crisis"Bill D'EliaElizabeth J.B. KlaviterFebruary 5, 2018 (2018-02-05)1LAP044.87[4]
When the ER budget is cut to cover the costs of Louisa's surgery, the department becomes understaffed and senior nurse Ellen Hundley is let go. Her replacement, an inexperienced nurse, erroneously triages a patient during a mass-casualty incident. The patient dies from a subdural hematoma and is misidentified, resulting in Conrad notifying the wrong family of their son's death. He subsequently has to treat the correct young man who survives. At the end of the day, Ellen is rehired and finds the John Doe's cell phone allowing Conrad to call his mother and inform her of her son's death. A woman is admitted to the hospital for what she believes are gallstones; she is diagnosed with gallbladder cancer and needs to undergo a risky and experimental operation. Thanks to Bell's now steady hands and experience, he is able to save the woman. Mina is benched for the day when she attempts to directly assist attending surgeon Jen Kays during an operation. Randolph enjoys the benefits of the benzodiazepines he's been taking to relieve his hand tremors. Nic experiences trouble retrieving Lily's medical file from Lane's chemotherapy clinic and goes directly to the clinic where she notices a treatment room that seems overcrowded with patients.

Randolph starts experiencing negative side effects from the benzodiazepines he's been taking. Three patients are admitted to the hospital: Ed needs an atrophied testicle removed; Christine needs surgery for an abdominal aortic aneurysm; and York requires a procedure to remove a foreign object from his colon. All three surgeries are scheduled concurrently with Randolph performing the procedures and Mina assisting. During York's operation, Bradley—a surgeon just completing a 30-hour shift—faints, setting off a series of events and Mina is subsequently subject to a morbidity and mortality conference to address an accident that occurred during one of the procedures. Nic confides in Conrad about her suspicions of Lane's treatment protocols and encourages Lily to seek a second opinion, prompting Lane to ban Nic from treating any of her patients. Marshall Winthrop—an investor looking to grant financial assistance to the hospital—is revealed to be Conrad's father.

An ER patient, Nigel, comes in for an injured ankle and tells Conrad he has been suffering from chronic digestive pain of unknown origin that has negatively impacted his quality of life for 10 years. Exhausted from countless tests with no results, he gives Conrad 24 hours to find the cause. Randolph stops taking the benzodiazepines and learns that brain surgery is his only other option to cure his hand tremor. Nic reveals to Mina that her sister is a recovering addict and discovers that Mina has been treating underprivileged people out of her apartment. Marshall meets with Conrad to inform him that he plans to open a small, private hospital and he wishes for Conrad to manage it.

After sexually harassing Nic, Conrad confronts him. Randolph's hand tremor returns and he approaches Mina to assist him in his surgeries. Darryl, a 70-year-old man with stage IV lung cancer, is given an extremely poor prognosis, but refuses treatment so he can spend more time with his wife.
