The WGA strike couldn't have had happened at a worse time for NBC's Scrubs
. Due to the shortage of scripts, the show has been forced to compress its seventh and final season to only eleven episodes, six of which have already aired. On the bright side, the remaining installments promise to be good ones, with show star Donald Faison
saying they worked hard to pack as much as they could into the episodes.
To find out more about the upcoming new episodes of Scrubs
, read on for spoilers.
According to SpoilerFIX, episodes 7, 8, and 9 of the current season are called “My Bad Too,” “My Manhood” and “My Princess,” respectively. In “My Bad Too,” J.D. (Zach Braff
) takes care of a burn patient, while Turk (Faison) takes Spanish lessons in the hopes of surprising Carla (Judy Reyes
) on their anniversary. In “My Manhood,” Elliot (Sarah Chalke
) refuses to tell Carla her secret, which drives the latter crazy.
In “My Princess,” Dr. Kelso (Ken Jenkins
), fearing the staff will make more mistakes that will make the hospital liable and open for lawsuits, says anyone caught working past their shifts will be suspended. E! Online
's Kristin Dos Santos reports that Braff directed this episode, which pays homage to The Princess Bride.
The episode will feature “costumes and locations, with the Janitor (Neil Flynn
) serving as a giant and J.D. as “the village idiot.”
From a more general standpoint, Dos Santos said that Dr. Kelso's retirement will be featured in one of the upcoming episodes. Jenkins, meanwhile, hinted that the retirement doesn't necessarily mean viewers have seen the last of his character.
“Well, you have to remember that Kelso won muffins for life!” Jenkins said, referring to a recent storyline. “I wouldn't bet on him going anywhere.”
As for the Janitor, whose love life received a boost this season, Flynn said that although his character won't be getting hitched anytime soon, viewers will “definitely see [his girlfriend] again. The Janitor's name also remains up in the air, but Flynn doesn't think “it'll be anything crazy.”
returns with new episodes on Thursday, January 24.
