The Resident season 5 premiere: Has Nic Nevin passed away?

As we prepared The Resident season 5 premiere, our big concern was pretty simple: that Nic Nevin would be dead by the end of the hour. We knew Emily VanCamp would be leaving the show; the real question mark was how it would happen.

Going into the episode, death was the option that made the most sense. Did we want the character to die? Hardly, but the reality is that there weren’t that many options available to the creative team here. Think about it this way: Their choices were limited. Nic wouldn’t leave her family out of the blue, and her departure shouldn’t mean Matt Czuchry is leaving the show, too. Making something happen to her was one of the few options that made sense.

Nic’s absence was apparent early on as Conrad spoke to her on the phone, but we never saw her on screen. If VanCamp was still part of the show, they would have let her interact on screen. There was a lingering fear that came after that because we all had to sit and wait.
