The lack of cliffhangers at the end of last season might not be the norm for a season finale, but fear not - The Resident is back with a bang. The season 5 premiere, titled 'Da Da', follows staff as they fall victim to a cyber attack and decide whether to pay the ransom or leave patients vulnerable. And of course, the drama is accompanied by a supply of romance from the Chastain Park Memorial Hospital.

The relationship between Conrad (Matt Czuchry) and his daughter will unfold as the doctor works on balancing his life as a new dad. But where's his wife? Nic (Emily VanCamp) wasn't written out of the show last season but VanCamp has since left the cast, so how are the producers going to spin this one? The promo video for the latest season shows Conrad open the door to two police officers - could this be the answer to all of our Nic related questions?
