  • Hood does something nice

    I don't know the real controversy about stem cells, but the fact is that if it can save a live without taking one, the research should have the support it requires. Hood did something really nice here. He saw this kid dying and suffering, alone in the world with her young brother and decided to talk to their stranged, lost in grief father to see if he could make his heart change and do something to save her. And it didn't work, but at least he saved his children in a different way. Hood and Rachel's chemistry continues to amaze. This time we had several cute moments and conversations that now have to be in every episode.moreless

This then led to the discovery that the extra heart had 19 different lots of DNA and therefore must have been created by the misuse of stem cells. At the same time, a brother and siser both had cancers and the sister needed her stem cells to cure her but they were amongst the stolen ones. Luckily the baddies were tracked down and she was able to be saved and at the same time she and her estranged father managed to renew their relationship, thanks to Hood and Rachel.moreless
