  • Sorrow and surrender... and results of actions, all in such a great episode.

    9.5
    It was beautiful. I do not remember if there has ever been a episode before what would be so concentrating to Weaver char and developing it, opening it up.



    The way she was portrayed and the way her want to do good ended up the way it did - with putting the house on fire and all those people. The way she stood in the middle of the rush on ER, Kovac as a shadow on background and the camera work throughout this episode - it was so much better than usual. And it is not bad, usually too, but - it was just so talkative and revealing.



    But Carry was not the only one. Elizabeth, who has been on so much trouble - she managed to come out her fear and overtrough all the second thoughts. It almost look like she burned out and even Romano looked worried, hiding behind the window, and the look on his face when he saw, that she is getting over. He can be human but it looks like he fears to show that to others.



    And Carter's confession to Chase at the end - another really well written and explained us a lot what is going on inside him.



    Gorgeous episode!moreless

    I enjoyed this episode for a number of reasons, but it was the more subtle parts that I enjoyed the most. Though this episode focused on Kerry as character, and those bits were very fitting, I think this one episode alone can really justify Romano. Although he didn't play a big part in it, this episode showed just how the audience can go from hating the guy one minute - as he manipulated Benton, but then see the real caring in him as he silently watched over Elizabeth's surgery later on in the episode. I believe that moment was defining for him, he almost took on the role of a Guardian Angel, we could see that he desperately cared but wouldn't let anybody know it. Instead, he avoids the easy route, friendship, in return for helping Elizabeth really learn as a surgeon.moreless
  • this episode made me sad

    9.5
    This episode was a fine example of showing that elizabeth is not the perfect surgon. It also was a perfect example of showing how Carter is untrue to himself about being addicted to pain killers. This show made me sad especially when Carter admits that he is a drug addict adiccted to pain killers to his cousin Chase who also was a drug addict a few years back. It made me sad when he sad he just played along and reaaly didn't belive in it. Also when he said he didn't want to admit that he was just like his cousin Chase.moreless
  • The episode addresses Elizabeth's difficulty in performing surgery.

    9.8
    One of the story lines within this episode involves Elizabeth's fear of surgery after she had permanently paralyzed a previous patient. In one particularly intense scene, she panics during surgery and yells at everyone in the room. At one point, she states that she will not paralyze this patient but the anesthesiologist asks if she wants to let him die. She screams at the nurse to find Romano. The nurse states that she can't find him anywhere. Elizabeth steps away and freezes. The nurse is asking what clamp and finally Elizabeth returns to the surgery. All the time, unknown to Elizabeth, Romano is watching. This particular part of the episode is riveting.moreless
  • It's exactly what the title means..

    Kerry surrenders to her real self,to her passion. She shows for the first time the well hidden vulnerable and human aspect of her charater. Making mistakes and making choices is human .After all the Weaver-Legaspi story was one of the best written in the history of ER . And Kerry's character evolves a lot during season 7.

    On the other hand Carter admits his own mistakes and haughty attitude while Mark and Elizabeth must come in terms with their new state of life and a guessing game .. A superb and very emotional episode.moreless
