    Great episode! Neela is the blue lady. Very good name and that kid likes her. He ran into a room where she was doing surgery! Gates tells that girl he doesn't want to live with her anymore. Oh My God! Are those to guys gay Pratt's brother?!? Because he was in the shower with this other guy and they were touching each other. That was so funny because Pratt got angry and kicked his gay friend and him out! The got the crap scared out of them! Alot of the people in the ER work so late and they sleep there!moreless
  • Really good episode

    8.9
    I do love the story of this episode. The whole thing with that homeless with rabies... I do not know - maybe you have to know more about the illness to see the beauty of the storyline but it was really well done and very thought provoking too. And Neela as a blue guardian was something new and worth watching.



    Also, this is the first episode I really liked that intern. When she first came, I think she was some fanatic but she is really developing and Bratt and she getting those medicines to the church. It was also very beautiful.



    Kovac and that patient of his.. Amice (?) I think this will be very interesting. The storyline is still not overmoreless
  • Great episode!

    Best scene: Abby & Luka going home together, after having had an argument earlier in the day. Luka reaches out his hand to Abby and she takes it. The beautiful blue neon light adds to the atmosphere of the scene. So sweet....

    Saddest story: The street kids. I feel really really sad about them. Their story makes you think: Is this really happening in the wealthiest, most advanced country in the world? Or is this a story from a third world country? The weird sort of mythology that they have created for themselves is probably their way of dealing with a harsh reality. It's heartbreaking.moreless
  • Another great episode i reli enjoyed.!

    9.5
    I'll start with my favourite's luka and abby , to start with luka was a bit harsh looking down on abby just because she did't agree with his decision was petty but hey i forgive him because we got to see them walking away and holding hands made me giddy lol



    The storyline with the homeless kids was well written the fact that the young boy saw neela as the blue laddy was adorable and i thought for a second the boy with the rabies wasn't going to make it but i was relieved when hope revealed otherwise.. on the subject of hope she's growing on me i think if they tone down the wisdom just a tad she could be a great character .!



    I didn't like the scene with gates and meg she seems to be clinging on to him but maybe she just wants what's the best for sarah which is understandable and the scenes with pratt i never saw him as the type to get angry over that but i'm glad he thought about it and ran after his brother..!



    Overall another great episode with a lovely luby moment..!moreless
  • ive watched the episode and i LOVED it! Alcoholics and mystery men, wot more could i want :)

    10
    Abby- loved her, as usual. i liiked how she connected with the alcoholic, and really tried to help him. thought it was soooo cute when we saw her and luka walking off, and he held her hand!



    Luka- omg how amaazin, he refered to abby as his wife! really worried now tho, specially with the frog in the package! he was right to take action now and speak to the police! haha i laughed when he shot that filthy look at eddie! protecting his woman!!



    Eddie- well if the spoilers are right, then i no wots goin on with him, but i wont say Neela- really enjoyed her scenes, we saw alot of her, and i thoroughly enjoyed her work in the ER and her interactions with the homeless children!



    Gates- im warming to him, i thought he was more grown up today, and it looks like hes really serious about neela! but i dont think he should just completely ditch sarah, and the mother! he shud keep in contact!



    Kerry- WOW, i love how we are seeing more of her, and a relaxed kerry! great to see her, and did i sense a new relationship coming on with the news lady, with the curly hair?



    Pratt- im liking his work with the church, but i didnt see him as the homophobic type.. i dont know where TPTB are guna go with his church work, to me its just background scenes, nothing important.moreless
