In The Night Shift episode ‘Turbulence’, while Jordan (Jill Flint), Paul (Robert Bailey Jr.), Shannon (Tanaya Beatty), Kenny (JR Lmeon), and Cain (Mark Consuelos) have fun competing in an obstacle course race to raise money for Cystic Fibrosis, Dr. Drew Alister (Brendan Fehr) struggles to treat all the passengers on a plane who “become sickened one by one.” Drew’s mother is also on the flight.
