  • A 9 week old baby suffers a seizure - how should she be treated? Jeffrey Geiger appears unexpectedly and causes havoc among the staff

    7.9
    It was a shame to see so many old faces leaving the show in this episode - I wonder if there was any animosity behind the scenes? Jeffrey Geiger showed yet again how unpredictable he could be and I felt he acted very unkindly in dismissing so many doctors out of hand, especially as there had been no indication that he was still involved in Chicago Hope. The arrival of Dr Gina Simon gave an inkling that the hospital would continue to carry out new and untested procedures.



    I felt that this episode was the beginning of the end for Chicago Hope and it was never the same again.moreless
