The Resident boss has launched on season five''s big return, seeing Nic Nevin return to tell her story about Conrad Hawkins.

Nic, who plays Emily VanCamp in the MCU program at the start of this season, died of injuries sustained during a car accident. In the season finale, the character appeared in a few flashback scenes, giving viewers a sense of her connection with Conrad.

According to executive producer Andrew Chapman, Amy Holden Jones suggested reintroduced Nic back during the season to compensate for her initial, rapid departure.

"Because so much of the season thematically had been about grief and loss and understanding mortality and how Conrad is moving on from his relationship with her and the time jump and being a single dad with Gigi, it felt like the right thing to do," Chapman told ET.

"She had not had the opportunity to say goodbye to everybody on the show, the crew, and all other actors. So she felt she needed help out," a producer said.

Nic''s return was decisive for Conrad to continue living after receiving his wife''s blessing.

"We realized that [Conrad] is looking for is the moment he gets at the very end, when he realizes he said, "If I die, I want you to move on. I want you to find somebody else," Chapman said.

"It was his goal. He pushed his partner for that," says the author. When he realizes that he was the one who said it, and Nic agreed, then he has this astounding revelation. It all becomes clear that he could move on. That''s what he was looking for."

Season 5 of The Resident airs on Tuesday morning at 8/7c on FOX in the United Kingdom. Season 5 is airing on Fridays at 9pm on Sky Witness, and you may catch up on seasons 1-3 via Disney+.
