  • So emotional

    Even though I've seen it already years ago and knowing what to expect, the episode brought me right to tears Jill get bitten by that shark, seeing her in recovery en then when Eddie and Craig come walking up to that room, God, how I wanted that scene to play out did she have to die, she was so great an kind.

    The most emotional episode there has been in my opinion.moreless
  • Emotional for Baywatch

    One of the more emotional episodes of Baywatch's 11 year run.
  • Goodbye my friend.

    It's weird how, even though I knew, I kept hoping that the episode wouldn't end the way it did. The synopsis of the episode in itself is very interesting and it brings up a lot of questions regarding this issue. I'm glad that the episode didn't imitate horror shows in any way, and that it stayed true to itself.

    The story of the guy planting the frequency isn't far out, and it's very believable. It's weird what a rotten soul can do - not realize how many lives they are putting in danger. And then it happened - Jill went to rescue those boys and ended up falling victim to a shark attack. The scene was so gripping and hard to watch for me because I didn't want it to happen. Jill was one of those "down to earth" type of people which I loved to watch. If anything, I would have loved to see more of her.

    I'm glad that they didn't end her life in the water and that she had some time in the hospital, even though it was hard to listen to news of her great recovery when in the end she didn't pull through. The ending montage was also very beautiful. Jill, you will be missed.moreless
