    Some good and some bad in this episode of Mercy. The ratings just don't seem to be rebounding on this show even with all the guest appearances at the Macy's parade and the Rockefeller Square Christmas lighting ceremony among others. I really thinks NBC wants this show to make it. Unfortunately even though it got its full 22 episode season order I don't think we'll see it next year.



    In this episode the two of the three major stories are Dr. Harris and the young girls pregnancy. Both of these stories are handled well and involve Chloe and Sonia for the most part.



    Veronica's part of this episode is centered on a young many with lung problems and in a way is about how she is living her life. She is watching Dr. Sands, Mike, and even her Father moving on with their lives and in a way hers in standing still. One sort of feels lost for Veronica at this point.



    Well acted and some interesting stories. For some reason this show is just not hitting the mark though. Sometimes you get nice feelings, sometimes you just don't care. It's actually puzzling. Maybe we aren't invested in the characters enough? Thanks for reading...moreless
