This season ‘Saving Hope’ is giving fans even more to love with ‘Last Call,’ a tie-in web series that provides an intimate glimpse into our favorites characters’ lives when they grab after-work drinks at the bar. A total of 13 webisodes will debut throughout the summer after new installments of ‘Saving Hope,’ but to sweeten the pot, CTV has already posted the first three episodes in this delightful digital series.

Canadian fans can watch all episodes online here: http://www.ctv.ca/SavingHopeLastCall/video.aspx

Fear not non-Canadian Hopefuls because we are in luck! Saving Hope Italia has posted ‘Last Call’ episodes on YouTube. You can also download the Google App HOLA to view international videos.

The web series starts off with a captivating conversation between Charlie and Gavin in “The Buffer.” After Charlie feels confident that a hilariously intoxicated Gavin will surely forget their conversation, he takes a big risk and opens up about his supernatural secret. Watch the embedded video to discover Gavin’s reaction. Do think this experience will discourage Charlie from sharing his secret? Who else wants to see more of Kristopher Turner’s drunken Gavin?

According to CTV’s Lindsay Zier-Vogel, we will get to see a lot more of this dynamic between Charlie and Gavin in ‘Last Call.’ Zier-Vogel reports:

In the first batch of webisodes that will roll out over the course of the summer, Shanks’ character, Charlie, is paired with Kristopher Turner’s character, psychiatrist Gavin.

“There’s so much potential with the dynamic between Charlie and Gavin,” Shanks reflects. “Charlie’s so sarcastic and Gavin’s so awkward and earnest. And through that Gavin’s going to end up finding out things about Charlie.”

He might learn things about Charlie, but Gavin’s a bit too drunk to be able to remember any of it the next morning. “Gavin’s character has no inhibitions, no filter,” Turner says.

“It’s hilarious!” he says, admitting that when he first read the script, he full-on laughed out loud. “It’s one of my favourite scenes I’ve ever done on this show.”

Benjamin Ayres, who plays newly divorced ER doctor, Zach, is also a fan of the webisode he has with nurse Melanda (played by Glenda Braganza). “It’s awkward and funny and our scene is especially hilarious from line one.”

Managing an always-busy ER doesn’t always make Ayres’ lines primed for laughs. “And somehow they still are,” he says, laughing. “I tend to have a lot of quippy, awkward funny lines and even more so in this (webisode).”

In the endearing second webisode, “Fuzzy Coma,” recently divorced Zach struggles to flirt with Melanda. How will Melanda handle Zach’s awkward advances?

Lastly, “Neuromale” reveals a sweet encounter between Shahir and Victor. After breaking up, they both wound up posting profiles on the same dating website. When Shahir fears his date won’t show, Victor kindly offers to help him with a profile make-over. Do you think there is a chance these two will get back together this season?

What do you think of ‘Last Call’ so far? Do have a favorite out of the first three webisodes? Did you find any of their interactions surprising?
