REAL OR NOT — Heartbeat: “Sanctuary” (1X9)

REAL OR NOT — Heartbeat: “Sanctuary” (1X9)

Sanctuary was the weirdest episode of a medical drama ever. Did we like it? YES. It was crazy but really interesting at the same time. To start with, the news that the show will not be renewed for another season are quite upsetting as I would have loved seeing how Alex is handling her crazy life after all that’s happened, but as we’re not set to see this, hopefully the writers of Heartbeat will wrap this story well enough to be remembered for a while!?


  • The triangle of love: Alex, Jessie and Pierce. What did we think will happen? We all know now, that Jessie is not going away and he is ready to be here for Alex, but she’s being too arrogant and hurt now. Oh, why love has to be so complicated. Please, writers, finish this off in a nice way!

REAL: How the real world works:

  • Having a heart disease can be extremely difficult and the show did a good job portraying this. So this little boy who was brought in years ago only lived for about 10 years because his heart was incredibly weak. Unfortunately, this is completely possible.
  • If you messed up badly at work, you would have to explain yourself to the board of the hospital. Without being funny, I mean!

FAKE: Cringe worthy scenes that would never happen:

  • Deciding to operate on the monkey? I mean, that was not just a decision made by Alex and Jessie. It was a decision made by the woman who was looking after the little cute monkey as much as Alex and Jessie. Why would they decide to do that? The monkey was 32 years old and Collin had heart disease too? So why did they fight for this surgery to happen so much? I guess we all know that Alex was probably fighting for her relationship more than the monkey…
  • Lying to your boss, stealing the monkey and performing a surgery on a poor animal, Alex being a mess… All of it was too shocking. Would this really happen? My answer is no. You cannot be authorized to do all these things and come out clean!
