The “Previously On” in the sixth season premiere of Childrens Hospital finds the staff wrapping up their time in Japan from last season and just as they’re getting ready to head back to Brazil, Owen is arrested for betting on surgeries, a crime he was framed by Chief. Our “Previously On” cues this season are fairly short and sweet, but this gave me the chance to use the long form version to setup a sense of accomplishment for the staff before pulling the rug out when Owen gets arrested.
We then jump 5 years ahead when Owen gets out of prison. One of the fun things about scoring Childrens Hospital, is that since the show has a loose continuity, I frequently get to come up with new themes and play them as if they had been a part of the story all along. In this case, it’s Owen and Cat’s love theme introduced here in “Owen’s Back” as Owen sees Cat, Cat reveals she’s pregnant, and Owen drops the bomb that it’s not his baby.
The episode concludes with an epic showdown between Owen, Chief, and Owen’s former cellmate, Dr. Ron Pippen.
As always, this was an immensely fun episode to score, and the season just gets crazier from here!
