  • Dylan has to deal with a teenager on steroids. Lu's patient's affair is revealed when twins are born.

    Personally, this wasn't my favorite episode. Although, I did like that the showed the great, and dangerous, lengths women will go to prove themselves. I don't think that Terry should have turned to steriods to help prove that she's good enough. Just being a girl and being on the football team says a lot. I also didn't like how Dylan betrayed Terry and told her dad. I know he said that his doctor/patient confedentiality doesnt start until the next few months (I believe that's the time frame), but I think he should have respected Terry's plea to not tell her dad, but instead try to get her help. After all, he is her doctor.



    Lu's side of the story was pretty good. I was shocked to find out that the twins had different fathers (although I have heard of that happening). I think Lu was right when Marco Jr. was comforted with Marco was near him. Babies do have a "radar", as Lu puts it, that tell them who their parents are. Marco Jr., while in the womb, "got to know" him parents and even though, genticially, Marco isn't his father, he sorta still is. Marco Jr. got to know who he is before he was born and therefore was able to be comforted by Marco when his tube slipped.



    All in all, it was an alright episode. Again, personally, it wasn't my favorite episode. As season 6 continues, the episode's get better and better each time.moreless
  • This is one of the best shows lifetime has put out in a long time.

    I think this episode testifies to what lengths women will go to to prove they are just as good as men even though using steroids is a pretty stupid way to go about it. I think she was naturally talented as it is. I don't know if I agree with Dylan's decision to tell the girls father because that is definately on ethically shaky ground. I did see the comic relief in some of the cases that Kayla had to take on while she was being reviewed. I think I would have died of embarrasment. ( The joys of being a resident.) I definately see a future for her and Peter. So far this new season has turned out pretty good.moreless
