All the things were happening during that installment.
But The Resident Season 2 Episode 8 confirmed that QuoVadis is shady AF, Gordan is the worst, and Julian didn't know about any of it.
So basically, it left most of us enraged, but not surprised.
The question for most of the season was whether or not Julian knew how shady Gordon was. It was hard to determine how much knowledge she had because she often came across manipulative, pushy, and opportunistic. Plus, Conrad didn't trust her at all. He still isn't digging her.
When it comes to reading people, always trust the judgment of animals, kids, and Conrad Hawkins. He can't be right all of the time, but his hesitancy is at least enough to give you pause.
Has your impression of Julian changed at all? She may be the whistle-blower who can expose Gordon and QuoVadis, which puts her on the right side of things, but she's still an annoying character. She's not a foe, but she isn't a friend either. She's an ally, at best.
Devon, this doesn't have to be weird. We are completely capable of being friends.
Julian Permalink: Devon, this doesn't have to be weird. We are completely capable of being friends. Added: November 19, 2018 Julian needs to learn how to follow her gut. She suspected something was off with Gordon, but she allowed him to tell her pretty words with his lying mouth of lies, and she was right back to being his most faithful advocate and foot soldier fighting for something with no information.
It was infuriating. Any sympathy Julian gained would vanish when she pushed her agenda on Henry's mother or was condescending to the pediatrician. Did you catch how rude she was about him reading the information on the product?
Julian didn't start questioning what was going on until after Henry had the VNS put in him. It was smart of Julian to head to the site so she could see their products for herself. It also felt like something she should have done a long time ago though.
One couldn't help but shake their head as she replayed all the times Gordon lied while looking at them unpack all this stuff from freaking China and putting them in QuoVadis boxes.
So much for making products themselves.
Gordon is such a slimy, money hungry, despicable person. He's not even a good liar; everything about him is sleazy, so it's hard to believe anyone would buy into anything he says.

We're supposed to root for Julian at the moment. It's not lost on me that Devon's unsubstantiated faith in her being a decent person is what pushed her to investigate more than anything else.
Seriously, he has known her all of ten minutes, so what made him confident in her abilities to "do the right thing?" Especially given their circumstances, but I digress.
Gordon: Well done, Dr. Bell. Today is a good day both for Chastain and Quo Vadis.
