  • Walter Week Five.

    I am going to be sad when Walter's tenure on In Treatment comes to an end. It has been great seeing two television veterans in John Mahoney and Gabriel Byrne interact together and the storyline has certainly raised some great questions upon the viewer about morals and ethics that can pertain to their own lives even if they are not millionaires or do even face the "millionaire's death" as the two described in this episode.

    I have a feeling this is not going to be a happy ending when this storyline concludes and that is just another testament as to how great In Treatment is for thinking outside conformity.moreless
