A Gifted Man


A Gifted Man follows Michael Holt (Patrick Wilson), a brilliant and charismatic surgeon who, after his ex-wife, Anna, dies and starts to teach him the meaning of life. Thanks to his lucrative career as an exception doctor, Michel has lived the life of luxury and easiness. Michel's sister Christina (Julie Benz), a single mother to a teenaged son, Milo (Liam Aiken), is happy that Anna is back in her brother's life even though she is only an illusion. Michael was always a better person because of her. However, Rita (Margo Martindale) is concerned of Michael's sudden change in behavior.

Anna tells Michael to continue her work at the Free Clinic and there, Michael meets Autumn, a volunteer that continues Anna's legacy.

1x16: In Case of Heart Failure recap: The scene opens over at Clinica Sanando. Michael’s getting ready for an awards ceremony at the Roosevelt Hotel, where he’s being honored for his achievements in Neurological Research. When Zeke mentions that Michael should bring Kate as his date, Kate and Michael verbally stumble over each other; as they clearly have feelings for each other and clearly don’t know how to address them. Kate’s been trying to bring up the kiss for the last week, but Michael keeps on dodging her questions; as he clearly can’t figure out, how to address that issue. At the hotel, Michael talks to Gene, a man who took photos of Michael for Time Magazine and is also being honored for his work. Gene tells him he met the love of his life, Trish, 2 weeks ago in India. Michael notices Gene is nervous and sweating while he’s accepting his award, and Gene then faints and bangs his head against the podium; much to everyone’s shock and horror... read more.

1x15: In Case of Letting Go recap: The scene opens with E-Mo arriving at Holt Neuro and Rita is delighted. She knows her bear hug could be brutal, but E-Mo has been paragliding. When Rita says he could start working again, Michael arrives with a joke – he doesn’t take walk-ins. Before long, Michael finds it hard to believe whom he is looking at. It is Lilly, Michael’s high school sweetheart, who has tracked him down from the school alumni, and wants him to go to the reunion. However, that is tomorrow, and Michael’s got a thing. He cannot leave his work behind. It turns out Lilly has had an accident as her cabbie rear ended somebody, and she went flying forward jamming her knee between the seats. She shows them the knee cap, but Michael notices a bruise mark on her head... read more.

1x14: In Case of Co-Dependents recap: The scene opens with Singer Shawnie Baker arriving concealing her face with a hooded jacket at Michael Holt’s clinic. She is rude with Rita, even though she goes gaga over how much her signing meant to her son. Shawnie is pissed about mentioning medical history in the online forms, and accuses Holt’s clinic of possible media leaks. Rita explains the clinic is more than strict about health information leaking out in the press, and she will have to wait for another half hour. Is Dr. Holt attending someone else at the expense of her time? She sent in 10 am for appointment. Rita shows the email sent to her. What is the appointment time mentioned here? 11? So she will have to wait. Meanwhile, Kate is having an argument with her husband over her unwillingness to take up the new offer he has found her. She is happy with the job, and wants to no change... read more.

1x13: In Case of Complications recap: The scene opens with Michael watching, as metropolitan workers slide through the aisles with their heavy equipment through the hospital. Michael looks perplexed until Anton gives him company, and the two of them look on at Christina and a fellow doctor in love exchange. Antoine lets on his tantric mood allows Christina to be interested in another soul. Michael meets Kate’s husband, to whom he has to confess a bump in one of his projects, and later, when he is about to get to his pharmacy chamber, his ex-wife’s spirit has arrived. She points out how Kate and her husband have been behaving in a strange way. There is a lot to suggest they are falling out of love. Michael suggests they are a busy set, when she explains that is what happened to them... read more.

1x12: In Case of Blind Spots recap: The scene opens with a basketball practice game in progress. The coach eggs on the star player Sherry. Dr Kate is the unofficial team physio and when Sherry falls near the D, she rams her back against a ball stand. She feels alright, but Kate insists she needs an X-ray. The X-ray shows no fracture or major harm, but Kate explains she will have to rest because she definitely has a bruise that could take a couple of days to heal. However, Sherry is not up to sitting out, and insists Kate lets her play the big game – she promises to take it easy. Later, Kate ensures that Sherry comes back for another appointment. Then she takes her to meet Dr. Michael Holt and his colleague Zeke Barnes. Turns out Sherry’s mother abandoned her when she was 10. Then Kate took her under her wing... read more.
