Press Release for Medium Episode 6×03 “Pain Killer”

By  | 

20090607_nan_k03_052.jpgI feel like it's taken us so long to get to the premiere, that I've forgotten that there are actually going to be more than two episodes. In fact, we've gotten the press release for episode 3! Martha Plimpton, who recently guest-starred on the season premiere of Grey's Anatomy, is in this episode, playing a friend of Allison's who has a brain tumor (you know, I've only been to Arizona once, but the amount of brain tumors that people on this show seem to be afflicted with don't exactly make me want to head back).

There's also stuff with Joe's job, which I know will make all of you super-happy! I'm just excited that it's directed by Tate Donovan. I haven't heard much from him since The O.C., so I'm interested to see what he's doing now.

WHEN ALLISON'S CANCER-STRICKEN FRIEND DIES SUDDENLY, SHE SUSPECTS THAT A HOSPITAL STAFF MEMBER, AND NOT THE WOMAN'S ILLNESS, IS TO BLAME, ON “MEDIUM,” FRIDAY, OCT. 9 DIRECTED BY:  Tate Donovan
Oded Fehr (“Sleeper Cell”) Guest Stars as Respected Physician Dr. Thomas Statler, and Martha Plimpton (“Running on Empty”) Plays Rosemary Widdick, Allison's Friend Who Has a Life-Threatening Brain Tumor


“Pain Killer” – A cancer-stricken friend of Allison's dies suddenly, leading her to suspect the woman's illness did not kill her and that a hospital staffer is to blame.  And, Joe takes cues from a story Bridgette wrote when it eerily echoes his latest job interview, on MEDIUM, Friday, Oct. 9 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
