Episode Review Episode Review

Joe Weisberg and Joel Fields have created something original with the limited series. The show has a compelling premise that has a lot to discuss the nature of therapy as well as generations of trauma. Overall, the conclusion is a great way to bring these intriguing themes to an end.

Alan could have perished at the end of the day however, he had at least found significance through lots of reflection on himself (something was evident in his notes the extent of those relationships).

The stories of Sam and Ezra were more focused on the trauma of generations The finale, however, isn’t averse to this subject. Sam and Candace both faced a tough lesson after Alan’s passing. They are both doing the difficult thing following Alan’s guidance. Sam is stopping physically himself from murdering. And Candace let her son recover in the most difficult way.

However, I’m happy that the story concluded with Ezra. This psychological drama is all about breaking cycles and overcoming cycles, after all. The scene in which Ezra’s therapist is featured hopes to show that the trauma of generations could be a thing of the past.

Though dark and gruesome, The Patient concludes with a genuinely uplifting message and a call to the audience to reflect on their own lives and realize that change can be difficult however, it is doable.
