Love's Labor Lost is one of the series classic episodes. Sleepless in Chicago is a wonderful companion, and sets us up for a dramatic, tearful season event.
We have a conclusion for the Tatiana storyline, and it's not a happy ending. Carol is given the bad news that she cannot be Tatiana's foster mother because of the suicide in season one. It's very heartbreaking, and it certainly make you feel for Carol. I thought it was interesting that she ran to Doug, and not to Tag, for comfort.
This episode also has Jennifer announcing to Mark that she is leaving him. This becomes a very important problem, for the upcoming episode. But you'll have to read my review of "Love's Labor Lost" to find out why.
And the reason for the title, Peter is on call for 48 hours straight, because of his shift swapping. When he is finally off, he goes home to watch over his mom. With the exhaustion of working for so long, he's asleep when his mom falls down the stairs.
Doug treats a little girl with a burned hand. We find out that the mom burns the girls hand whenever she's caught touching herself. This is the second episode in a row, where Doug has an abused child in the ER.
It wasn't all dramatic. There are some very light moments during this episode. Which are needed, because the next episode has very few light moments.
