The young doctor’s morphine addiction has a deadly grip: hollow-eyed, working at that terrible clinic in the middle of nowhere, he is abject. Meanwhile, his older self (Jon Hamm) too is unhappy: when the pair “meet”, they fight. Though there is a scene that will delight Hamm and Daniel Radcliffe fans when they share a bath.

It’s the final episode, so there’s a sense of an ending for both. The young doctor is called out in a blizzard to a woman with a serious head injury. His “treatment” is shocking, but he’s detached — it’s the morphine. When he tries to resist, his world spins.
