Dawn Bell

This Season -- to Alex and Charlie’s surprise -- Dr. Dawn Bell, Charlie’s ex-wife and respected Cardiologist, will be rejoining the Surgical Staff at Hope Zion. Last Season, Dawn was constantly calling Alex’s ability to make the right decisions for Charlie into question, this Season she’s zeroing in on Alex’s abilities as a surgeon. As smart and conniving as ever, Dawn is still trying to get in between Charlie and Alex. But, they will have to learn to live with her -- Dawn is back at Hope Zion for good and even has her eyes set on Joel’s position as Chief of Surgery.
