'Eye Candy' fan recap: Medical mishaps

Season 1 | Episode 6 | “ICU” | Aired Feb 16, 2015

Hacking is a serious problem on Eye Candy. With any handy keyboard, these hackers (and aspiring killers) are making things difficult for the Cyber Crimes team. And if a hospital can be taken down, Lindy will need a lot more tools at her disposal to stop the Flirtual killer. Seriously, does no one on this show set up a firewall?

After the deadly game on last week’s episode, Lindy is looking for down time—a chance to cuddle up next to a cute Australian boy. She’s planning a date with Jake and hoping quality time with her Flirtual love interest will take her mind off the case.

The only person not excited is Tommy. Lindy’s not-so-secret admirer crashes the apartment and can’t hide his gloating when Jake cancels. If you’re keeping score, it’s still a close race between the #Tindy and #Jindy fans.

Tommy isn’t just there to see Lindy; he needs a favor. Someone has potentially hacked the hospital and caused the equipment to malfunction. The most recent incident caused a gas tank to leak and the medical staff to pass out during a live brain surgery!

The scared patient suffered major brain hemorrhaging, and now Tommy’s ex-girlfriend, neurosurgeon Dr. Wells, isn’t sure if it’s an operational error or a hacking. Lindy is able to get the information she needs thanks to Dr. Wells’ hospital pass—it was a hacking! But there are still some burning questions that need answering.

Lindy goes undercover and checks herself in as a patient to get into ICU. With a little hacking from George, she’s “diagnosed” with an illness, albeit one she didn’t expect: neurosyphilis.

After faking a symptom, she’s taken to ICU for further tests and slips away to explore the hospital. While following the map on her tablet, she bumps into Erika, a patient she briefly encountered earlier.

Things aren’t looking too good for Erika; she’s suffering from a serious illness and needs a machine to live. The two chat over their boy troubles and share a touching moment as new friends, especially since Lindy opens up to someone about losing Ben.

Lindy’s tablet leads her to the one place she didn’t expect: the chapel. Hidden underneath the alter, she finds a digital port taped to the bottom. She has just enough time to send George the files before a lurking male nurse, Laurence, surprises her. From the look he gives the table, he might be hiding something.

Back in the patient’s room, Lindy is being prepped. Her “illness” needs to be diagnosed and the doctors are ready to use a needle. I’m not a fan of needles either, so I get Lindy’s pain! She’s lucky Tommy burst into the room to stop the procedure.

George spilled the beans; he told Tommy everything about her undercover plan. Though instead of getting her out, Tommy decides another idea: He pretends to be Lindy’s fiancé to stay in ICU. They are still acting, right? Tommy looks a little too happy to play the role, and if Dr. Wells didn’t stop it, he would’ve kept up the act.

George gives Lindy a new lead for the hacker. The hospital tablet used for the hacking belongs to a nurse: Laurence Kennedy, the creepy male nurse from earlier!

Before they’re able to bust him, an alarm goes off and the staff swarm to a patient’s room. Erika’s machine is malfunctioning and the doctors are trying to save her life. Unfortunately, it’s too late—Erika is dead. The hacker has struck again, but at least one suspect is cleared.

Laurence isn’t the hacker. He wasn’t at the hospital during the first attack, so it could be anyone. The next possible suspect: Erika’s boyfriend, Mark.

Mark could be the hacker, as he has means and motive. Both he and Erika work at an antivirus software company, and the hospital did indirectly cause Erika’s death. She was on a waiting list for a heart transplant, but her medication killed her liver and she was removed. Without it, she was just waiting to die.

As Erika’s name is entered into the hospital computer, a virus begins shutting everything down. Lindy figures out that Erika’s death triggered this latest attack. Erika isn’t a victim, she’s the hacker. Erika blames the hospital for her death and before she died, she masterminded a plan to take them down. She created a virus that would be triggered after she died!

Mark no longer wants to be involved. He was looking for the kill switch in Erika’s room to stop the attack, but the switch is gone. Erika took it with her when she died: She swallowed it.

The hospital is going haywire and without the switch, many people will die. Lindy and Tommy head to the morgue to find Erika’s body. George is willing to show them how to surgically get the switch, but they’re not doctors. Luckily for them, they’re in a hospital, and Yeager arrives in time with Dr. Wells.

The virus isn’t easy to stop, and a password is needed. It could be anything! Lindy tries the name of Erika’s drug, Moxopan, but it doesn’t work. With minutes counting down, she gets help from an unthinkable source.

The Flirtual killer is watching her. The killer is open to giving her the code and offer his “Eye Candy” some help. As time ticks away, Lindy accepts and stops the virus with the code (the molecular form of Moxopan). But did she make a mistake?

Someone like the Flirtual killer doesn’t do anything without wanting something in return. I’m sure this won’t be the last Lindy hears from him. Lindy opened Pandora’s box, and while her latest gift is from Jake, the Flirtual killer may come calling real soon.

Eye Candy airs on Mondays at 10/9C on MTV.
