Saving Hope

Synopsis

Everything seemed to be going great at the end of last season on SAVING HOPE. Dr. Alex Reid (Erica Durance) and Dr. Maggie Lin (Julia Taylor Ross) had won the prestigious fellowship award and Dr. Charlie Harris (Michael Shanks) had solved his spirit problem. But celebrations were cut short by a vengeful Tom Crenshaw (Travis Milne, ROOKIE BLUE) who appeared at the Hope Zion Hospital Fellowship Awards and fired a shot at Alex and Charlie. The fifth and final season of SAVING HOPE sees the Hope Zion Hospital staff thrust into turmoil. As we pick up in the aftermath of the heart-stopping cliffhanger, the doctors of Hope Zion are in a state of self-doubt. As Alex grapples with her destiny and faces a big decision, her fellow doctors deal with new challenges as changes come to Hope Zion, including a new CEO, that will not only affect the livelihood of the hospital, but also its doctors and everything they hold dear. And Charlie, thinking his surgery had exorcised his spirits, realizes that the ghosts aren’t going away anytime soon.
