  • Carol looking for a car... Carter falling deeper...

    8.5
    This episode is somehow the break point for Carol. She is spending so much time with Kovac and he is offering his help, they seems to have so much great time. And she really seems to make Kovac be able to talk about the past what makes it more and more interesting for us. And the way it ends - I think it was waited for a long time.



    Ob the same time, when it looks like Carol's life is getting better, Carter is hearing voices, having flashbacks and digs in the past and in the life of the stabber to learn why he did it. Greene's father is getting worser. And maybe it was the most beautiful part of the episode, when Mark takes his father to the water.. and to the ride over that lake, sea? Beautifulmoreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Goof: Luka tells Carol that his wife and children died during the Croatian war when the building they lived in was bombed, but nine episodes earlier, in "Family Matters," he told Kerry that they had been taken away and killed.

  • QUOTES (1)

    • Carol: Did you grow up in the city?
      Luka: No, near the coast.
      Carol: Is that where you were during the war?
      Luka: No. Then we were in Vokuvar. Small apartment, did'nt have much money... We kept the children in all the time, for safety. They would get crazy, what do you call it...?
      Carol: Cabin-fever.
      Luka: Yeah... I was going to the market to...not for much, some cheese and bread... and they were climbing all over me. 'Please let me come, let me come'. And the answer was the same as always: No, it's not safe... My wife stayed with them.
      Carol: Luka...
      Luka: No, it's o.k. I was only maybe, uh, 50 meters away when I heard the whistle in the air. An artillary shell hit the building. (pauses) It's already done now. People rebuilt all during the war. One day you're sitting at a café, the next day it's bombed, and the day after that, they begin to build! That's what you do. Something happens, you rebuild, you go on. (pauses) We should probably go. Your mother will think you've gone joy-riding.

  • NOTES (2)

    • Though spelled correctly when he is listed as the series creator in the opening credits, Michael Crichton's last name is incorrectly spelled "Chrichton" when he is listed with the other executive producers in the end credits of this episode. This mistake was repeated in most of the Season 4 episodes and in all of the Season 6 episodes.

    • Music: "Bookends," Simon and Garfunkel
