Dr Peter Benton still aspires for more professionally and also has to deal with his failed relationship with Jeannie, a physical assistant working at the hospital.
Dr Susan Lewis continues to struggle at work and at home, being the chosen target of Dr Weaver and also has to raise her sister's baby.
Dr Carter is still coming to terms with being a doctor in the ER but is becoming more professional though still retaining his very human and compassionate nature. Nurse Carol Hathaway tries to recover from her failed relationship and gets involved with a paramedic, Shep. She maintains her friendship with Dr Ross, who in turn continues his womanising ways, sometimes getting himself into trouble.
