Complications Season 1 Episode 6 Review: Diagnosis

at .  Updated at .

Everyone had their own little projects on Complications Season 1 Episode 6 and the “Diagnosis” was grim, because just when you thought things couldn’t get any worse for John, they did.

If only the poor guy could get some sleep. After being up all night dealing with the aftermath of a gang war and doing impromptu surgery on Darius in the PT room, you’d think he’d ignore his phone and the door or, at least tell Detective Holden he’d catch him later.

But this is John, and the man apparently can’t say no. 

John’s trip down crime scene lane was filled with blood soaked car seats and mug shots of gang members. Honestly, does anyone remember faces when bullets are flying by? 

John continuously attempts to wiggle out of this horrible situation but the more he tries, the deeper he sinks. He's sunk so deep now that I don’t see how he gets out of this without serious consequences. The police believe he’s working for EZ’s gang and want him to be an informant.

The gang would surely kill him and his family if they thought for a second that he’d flip on them, and now Bridget believes John has a drug problem.

I had no doubt Bridget would flip on John, and apparently neither did he. I’m guessing it’s only a matter of time before that tale John spun about having a drug problem gets back to Sam, most likely through Kyle who will be gleeful to share the bad news and more than ready to comfort Sam. 

But John wasn’t the only one with problems. Gretchen’s little project wasn’t going so well either. I give her huge props for tracking down Elio, as most people would have given up long before she did. Once she found him with the sleazy neighbor (and just the guy’s hand on Elio’s shoulder was enough to give me shivers), I kept wondering how she was going to get him out. A swift kick actually seemed like a light touch when talking about Gretchen.

If there’s one thing Gretchen doesn’t know how to do, it’s back down. She didn’t do it when faced with a bunch of gang members at gun point in order to help Elio, and she didn’t flinch when faced with being grilled by Darius. As a matter of fact, she was quick to put him in his place in this Complications quote

Gretchen: If you don't want to trust me, fine. Get gangrene and die.
Darius: That's alright. She's my kind of people.

Unfortunately, the weakest link for both John and Gretchen has got to be Jed. There’s no way he’s not going to start talking in jail, especially once he crashes from his latest high. How Gretchen will keep him quiet is beyond my imagination, which is why I can’t wait to check back in next Thursday for Complications Season 1 Episode 7.

If you can’t wait until then, you can watch Complications online here at TV Fanatic.

Complications Season 1 Episode 6 Quotes

Gretchen: If you don't want to trust me, fine. Get gangrene and die.
Darius: That's alright. She's my kind of people.

Who do you think takes care of these people when they shoot each other over corners. I do, just like I do for cops and anyone else who walks into the ER. I'm just on the side that keeps everyone alive.
