  • Rain.. and more rain

    8.4
    Somehow all rainy ER episodes mean busy days and catching cases. If there would not be that nurse manager, it would have been create.



    I loved the little emotional thing going on with Dubenko. He is interesting character and now we also learn little more about him. And Sam and Luka working together - it was quite good and got it's point.



    Neela and the family - another catching storyline. Really reminded me Neela's early days when she so much wanted to do something, but never managed it.. as things fell apart - like this time. She wanted something good but... it did not worked out.



    And lightning..moreless
  • great episode

    9.8
    good episode, I think I liked it better the second time, Neela really came into her own in this one, in my opinion, Good Luka moments, I really like it when I can rewatch an episode with the perscective of seeing what has transpired since, and knowing what we know now, made the Lucian Dubunko moments with Abby funnier
  • Thoughts of the week.

    8.1




    1. Dubenko and Abby. Poor Dubenko, I do hope he is ok, and I liked the continuity with the story-line involving him liking Abby. But oh my, was that his name we heard????????!!!!!!!!??????? I am frankly appalled, I had hoped for it to be the new ER mystery for the next 11 years!!!!! But hey, that ending was sweet despite being obvious (with Abby pointing the 'therapist' in his direction).



    2. Abby throwing coffee...Okay, the shoe thing I understand; it was the woman's fault and Abby did all she medically was required to do. But burning coffee? Please! Abby is a 40-year-old, I think she's a little more mature than that - she could have seriously injured that man, really scalded him!!! I'm also reckoning on having an 'Abby's foolish action bring a patient to the ER' of the week situation. Seems to be the current trend. Or something there abouts anyhow.



    3. Luka had gorgeous hair!!!! The best hair I have seen on anyone, ever. Go Luka's hair!!! Oh, and Abby's hair was certainly improved. And Neela's got wet a lot.



    4. I LOVED Sam confronting Eve. Well, I like Eve a lot (and may I mention she looks better with her hair tied in a bun than in a pony-tail, just a small observation) but Sam was completely in the right. And I found I was liking her character a lot more than I have been recently throughout the episode. I mean, it's clear she's a good nurse and she ande Kovac work well together. But anybody...what exactly is a teapot?



    5. I was disappointed with Kerry. Well, I'll always love her but I watched the episode a few hours after seeing a season 5 episode. In that, she was back to being an ER doctor full-term (after quitting something to do with interns...?) and the message that she loved actual physical medicine and was brilliant at it was repeated a lot. Then I saw this episode, where she was just a little "rusty", is the term she described. I just don't believe Kerry would ever have allowed management to damage her skills as a doctor...Also, did we ever actually find out who was right - her or Kovac?



    6. The Jerry bit was the 'humour of the week'. I really do appreciate the lighter sentiments thrown into these heavier episodes, I must admit.



    7. Ray...does he even have a point anymore? All we saw last week was some shaking walls. This week, we have him on the phone. Does this mean we're due an entirely Ray-centred episode, or are they slowly phasing him out? I guess the first, but would rather the latter. Ray used to be the 'rock doc.' who couldn't decide between medicine and music. Then he was forced to make that decision at the end of season 11. Now though, what on earth is he doing???



    8. Lucien isn't too bad for Dubenko. I was more disappointed about finding out in general. I'm sure most people never noticed/didn't connect the mystery of the name with the finally solved crutch mystery, but us ER fans did and thought of it as the replacement mystery for the next few years...So it seemed to me they needlessly told us the name rather than give us a heads-up on this occassion.

  • Paul McCrane, Laura Innes, Christopher Chulack are what ER needs.

    7.2
    Paul McCrane gave a really special touch to this episode. The hole dark humor is just amazing. It\'s great. I didn\'t liked his character Romano, but McCrane is a great , great director who diserves more ER episodes. In fact, he and Laura should direct, that\'s offcourse if they wan\'t to, direct all the episodes. They\'re great.
  • Not very memorable.

    8.3
    I didn't care too much for this episode. There were no big character developments and once again Shane West barely made an appearance. It felt like the old episodes with Kerry back in the ER, Paul McCrane directing and more focus on the patients bu all in all just an average episode with nothing to place it high up with other classics. My least favourite of the season.
