Character Review

Our senior ER resident, Maggie Doyle, gives the new resident, Anna, the ‘good’ cases, while assigning Carter to the suture room. This leads Carter to believe Maggie is attracted to Anna, which Maggie laughs off. Kerry Weaver tries to ‘recruit’ Maggie to Kerry’s way of doing things, which has thus far only caused irritation with the other staff. We don’t get a clear idea if Maggie sides with Kerry or not.

Character Notes

  • Maggie is now the senior ER resident


Maggie: ‘(To Anna as she leaves)’ I love your hair.
Anna: ‘(To Carter)’ What was that about?
Carter: Nothing.
