OK, I'm going to get this out there in the hope that it jinxes it from actually happening! (False hope? Fuck it...)

In a show that's all about neurosurgery doesn't hallucinating seem like a set up for him to have a brain tumor? Or at the minimum get checked out for one?

In the book, one of the doctors does develop a brain tumor. It is NOT Ty. (I won't say who it is, because if it does happen in the show as it does in the book, it'd be spoilery to say the least.) Obviously, they could tweak the plotlines and give it to Ty instead but FOR CHRISSAKES, SHOW, NO. JUST NO. ;)

Yes. I didn't say anything about it because I didn't want to be spoilery but that's exactly what I was thinking. It would be a TOTALLY different story line with Ty vs. the character from the book. There really wouldn't be any good storytelling reasons for it beyond the shock value so I hope they wouldn't go that route.

Partly it was the girl, Trisha and how she said her mom made her get checked out because she heard God in a sonata. If that requires a check up I would think hallucinations would as well.

Completely agree. The context in which it is applied to the character in the book is very specific.
