  • Four corners of the ER...

    The episode stars right after Mark lets the guy in "The Rampage". He is called into Romano`s office. Weaver returns from her "trip". Carter is in a suit, he looks good. Luka is looking an apartment for Abby, just as they discıuss that, a young girl falls down from the roof and falls right in front of them.
    The first corner of the four is Weaver. It`s obvious that she`s having problems with being a lesbian and she feels like everybody is looking at her, watching and judging. Haleh breaks the news, Legaspi left the hospital. I`m going to miss Elizabeth Mitchell, she is such a great actress and she was good at portraying Kim Legaspi. Kerry struggles a bit when she hears the news . Chen has been made the Chief Resident, what a mistake. Kerry tries to learn from Luka if there had been any gossip abut her while she was away. Later she asks Romano if he told anyone about her. Apparently he didn`t. The second corner is Benton. He is distracted by Cleo while he works. Benton examines a quiet girl who has learnt that her boyfirend whose baby she was carrying is her half brother. She is devastated. Peter chooses not to get involved and calles a psych consult for her.His niece comes and talks to him about the crappy condition her parents are in. Meanwhile his patient throws herself off the roof and he is called into the trauma. She dies, he feels guilty for not listening. Later that night he visits his sister for some talk, or listening, a better word choice... The third corner is Carter, who is on his way to a funeral with his mother in a limo. ıt`s a neat sevice, it`s his grandfather`s funeral. Again he looks good in that suit.The hospital needs him. He tries to find a bed upstairs for his patient who has been waiting since the day before. Later at the Carter mansion, Abby joins him at the recption, she feels that she owes him because he helped her with her mother. His parents are unbearable, what kind of people are they?! Carter snaps at his father, and tells him to face Eleanor. Carter find Millicent in the garage, sitting in an antique car with a bottle of quality champagne.Thay drink in honor of John Truman Carter, the original, Gamma and he was supposed to drink that on their anniversary, that`s just sad... They drove off with that beautiful antique Jaguar...
    And finally the fourth corner, Greene. He has an MRI and comes back to the ER. Luka wants to have an M&M about "the patient" and Mark to represent. He talks to Romano, he asks him a critical question but before he gets the chance to answer, Romano gets the news about the girl falling of the roof. He finds the right answer to the question and later he represents the case. The mother of the girl tells Mark that it was all a lie, she did not have a half brother. "God gets really angry when you lie." Mark feels bad and tries to tell Elizbaeth the truth, she wants to know the truth but they are both scared of hearing it. Great episode, super season opener. It`s important for me because the episode is all about four original cast member and they all have some caharacter development.
