Season 1, Episode 6
An array of challenging pediatric cases run through this episode. Frightened that brain surgery could damage their child, Thomas McGowen's parents finally let surgeons operate to try to remove a tumor that is making their son blind. Emre Babli is another little boy who had a tumor removed as baby. The operation left him disfigured. Tough-talking plastic surgeon Anthony Tufaro thinks he can make Emre as good as new. But nothing will make Mya Thomas like she was. This little girl was nearly drowned when pulled from a pool. With her brain function minimal, doctors try to persuade her parents to disconnect life support. Sneha Desai, Herman Bagga and Gina Westhoff introduce viewers to the world of third year medical students where "the gross stuff is cool, delivering a baby is a career-decider, and wearing a turban is an icebreaker with patients.

Peyton Penrod is a healthy toddler who suddenly needs to be rushed to the Hopkins PICU, one of the country's top ICUs for children. His heart presents his doctors and his parents with two bleak options: a risky heart transplant or death. By his own admission, vascular surgeon Tom Reifsnyder is not cut in the Hopkins mold. Irreverent, chatty, and candid about his marital travails, Reifsnyder's surgeries tend to be comic relief sessions during which he interrogates his residents on everything from their romantic lives to the kind of cars they drive. Anne Czarnik returns in this episode and takes viewers on the road to visit her tiny hometown in the hills of West Virginia.

Any news on ABC's absolutely ...

But given that this is a continuation of a limited-run docu-series that ABC News aired several years ago, I'd think it's more likely that we'll see it return in miniseries format a while down the line.
