  • Cold and troubles

    6.8
    The episode was not as good as some others.. Cold is right word. Not the acting but the things that happen in story - some more, other less.



    The case with family in blizzard. That little girl was so brave.. wanted to see everything and taking things seriously and I think even played a part of finding that boy.



    But the gang thing. I did not catch that storyline. And Dubenko. I have liked that char but he was so cold and so cruel to Neela. And Gates.. I really like Sarah and hope she is not going away. But Gates is acting cold to Neela and I think she is in the biggest mess.moreless
  • Not the best ER episode, but I liked it anyway.

    Funniest scene: Hope has put two and two togheter finding out about Abby's & Luka's wedding. Abby is telling her off, "If you tell anyone, I'll kill you."

    Saddest scene: Sam leaving Alex at the boarding school. – And it's really sweet that Luka still has a sensitive ear regarding Sam and Alex, and supports Sam's decision.

    Sweetest scene: Abby & Luka discussing their wedding. Luka thinks that Abby should plan the wedding, while he plan the important honeymoon himself.

    Best scene: Charlotte thanking her brother Spencer for saving their family, but it turns out he is saved by the text messages from his sister. The young girl playing Charlotte really impressed me.

    Most annoying: Dubenko excluding Neela from evaluating patients etc, in favour of a new "teacher's pet", Mae Lee Park. More romance in the air? Neela and Ray share a kiss....moreless
  • Great!

    9.1
    Great episode! Luka and Abby make wedding plans. Hope finds out. Man she likes to tell because she told Morris. Gates doesn't want to lose Sarah but her grandparents want to take her and little do they know Gates is actually the father. OMG next week she finds out and man does she look shocked about it!
  • Secrets are discovered whilst a mother and a father must make a decision!

    So we were blessed with some more Luby scenes,I always enjoy the interaction between Goran and Maura they make it seem so effortless and realistic it's easy to get carried away.But will their secret engagement be shattered by hell in the form of Hope and Morris..?Hope's scenes where she confronted Abby were awesome her giddy school girl laugh was fantastic and she will "dead" if she speaks a word; I have no doubt!



    A family trapped in the snow for numerous days was brought in; the young girl was adorable and so brave and although Spencer saved the families lives she saved his!



    Pratt faced a father who was trying to cover for his son after a gang shooting left a boy dead.Pratt mellowed a bit and it was a shame to see the son go to prison but he was arrogant and selfish and disrespectful to his father.Pratt was evidently hit close to home prompting him to go visit a friend inside.Pratt's reaction in the car afterwards just really added some depth to his character that he seemed to have lost for a while.



    The finale scenes with Sam and Alex were heart-breaking... him pleading with her not to leave him and Sam just crying were really hard to watch and just seeing her walk away was terrible.She did it for him but it was hard.



    Awesome writing and a great performance from Linda!moreless
  • It's about time, Ray and Neela! :)

    8.9
    I was very happy for the roomies (do we still call them that?) in this episode. We've only been waiting for that kiss for...forever. I'm excited to see where this takes them.



    This was likely just me, but I had a warm fuzzy moment went Luka asked Sam if she was okay and put his hand on her arm (yes, I know, he and Abby are getting married, but that doesn't stop me from dreaming *sigh*)Wow, I'm such a samka-delusional...



    My mom had a hard time getting through the scene at the end where Sam dropped Alex off at the reform school. And seeing as it was such an emotional scene, I was really quite proud of Alex for once. He and Linda had me crying--strong performances all around!



    It was a solid episode, even though there wasn't really much to it.moreless

    • Neela: Hi, nice to meet you.
      Mae Lee Park: Heard a lot about you.
      Neela: Oh, great. All good, I hope.
      Crenshaw: More or less. We left out the part about you being our unwanted ER stepchild.

    • (about Abby)
      Hope: You have the glow. I can't wait for the glow. I can't wait to try on wedding dresses.

    • Hope: (slamming her locker door) I knew it!
      Abby: (startled) What?
      Hope: You're getting married.
      Abby: Am not!
      Hope: Well, why are you looking in the wedding mags?
      Abby: Because they're... they're... they're... there!
      Hope: And why were you asking all the wedding cake questions earlier?
      Abby: I was... I was curious.
      Hope: Okay, fine. Look me in the eyes and tell me you're not getting married.
      Abby: No!
      Hope: Why not?
      Abby: Because that's stupid. (contemplates that thought, then looks into Hope's eyes) I am not getting married. (she looks away)
      Hope: You looked away. I knew it! I knew it! I knew it!

    • Abby: Hope! If you tell anyone, I'll kill you.
      (Hope giggles)
      Abby: You hear me? Kill you. As in dead. Got it?

    • Hope: Hey, is Kovac going on vacation?
      Morris: Yeah. A little romantic getaway, I guess.
      Hope: They're getting married. I just knew it! Abby was asking a patient about wedding cakes this morning,and that getaway smacks of honeymoon.
      Morris: Have you met Abby Lockhart? Not exactly the marrying kind!
      Hope: We're female--we're all the marrying kind. I can smell a wedding a mile away, Archie. It's like a sixth sense.

    • Morris: Hey. (he hands Luka a slip of paper) Angie's number. I gave her the heads up. She's expecting your call.
      Luka: Thanks, Archie!
      Morris: Said she had some great family resort hook ups; fun for the gremlin, swimming with dolphins, water slides...
      Luka: We might not be bringing the gremlin.
      Morris: Oh, a little kick start to the old postpartum love life! I feel ya, big guy! Alright!

    • Abby: (to a patient who happens to work in a bakery) What's the deal with wedding cakes? How come they are so expensive? I saw one that cost $2,000.
      Hope: Can you really put a price on the most special day of your life?
      Abby: Mmm, what if it sucks?

    • Luka: Did you wear tulle or taffeta?
      Abby: What do you know about tulle or taffeta? Are you going soft on me?
      Luka: I read about them online. Look, I tell you what. Why don't you plan the wedding and I'll plan the really important stuff, like the honeymoon? (leans over and kisses her)
      Abby: Okay.
      Luka: Okay!

    • Abby: When was the last time you actually went to Mass?
      Luka: That doesn't matter. It's a tradition.
      Abby: Not mine.
