'The Knick' News: Episode summaries (spoilers abound!) + 2 new preview clips for 1x05

Episode #8: “Working Late a Lot”

Debut: FRIDAY, OCT. 3 (10:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT)

Other CINEMAX playdates: Oct. 3 (11:00 p.m., midnight), 4 (9:00 p.m., 11:35 p.m.), 5 (2:30 p.m.), 6 (8:00 p.m., 12:35 a.m.), 7 (10:00 p.m.), 8 (9:00 p.m.) and 16 (2:15 a.m.)

Already on edge due to a city-wide run on cocaine, Thackery (Clive Owen) worries that Dr. Levi Zinberg (Michael Nathanson), a Jewish surgeon and inventor, will steal his spotlight at the next New York Surgical Society presentation. Bertie (Michael Angarano) continues his courtship of Lucy (Eve Hewson) while staving off his father’s persistent demands that he leave the Knick. Cornelia (Juliet Rylance), Speight (David Fierro) and Bertie go to court in an attempt to keep “Typhoid Mary” Mallon (Melissa McMeekin) quarantined. Gallinger (Eric Johnson) tries to get Eleanor (Maya Kazan) to move past her grief.

Written by Jack Amiel & Michael Begler; directed by Steven Soderbergh.

Episode #9: “The Golden Lotus”

Debut: FRIDAY, OCT. 10 (10:00-11:00 p.m.)

Other CINEMAX playdates: Oct. 10 (11:00 p.m., midnight), 11 (9:00 p.m., 12:05 p.m.), 12 (1:30 p.m.), 13 (8:00 p.m., 1:00 a.m.), 14 (10:00 p.m.), 15 (9:00 p.m.) and 16 (3:10 p.m.)

A late-night crime sheds unfavorable light on the Knick, forcing Robertson (Grainger Hines) to come up with hush money. Lucy goes to extremes to get drugs for an increasingly desperate Thackery, whose plea for an advance from a seller of patent medicines falls on deaf ears. Gallinger despairs as Eleanor’s behavior becomes more erratic; Cornelia and Edwards (André Holland) proffer different solutions to a shared dilemma.

Written by Steven Katz; directed by Steven Soderbergh.

Episode #10: “Crutchfield” (season finale)

Debut: FRIDAY, OCT. 17 (10:00-11:00 p.m.)

Refusing to collaborate with Dr. Zinberg (Michael Nathanson) on blood-transfusion research, an increasingly paranoid Thackery pushes himself to the limit, and beyond, in an effort to “solve the riddle” and beat his rival. Cornelia and Edwards arrive at a crossroads; Barrow (Jeremy Bobb) trades one creditor for another; Lucy requests Bertie’s help. With the Knick in the midst of yet another crisis, Robertson calls for a vote.

Written by Jack Amiel & Michael Begler; directed by Steven Soderbergh.
