  • Donating blood if you're able to is a must, and we see why in this great episode.

    Next to Rape Kit this was one of the best episodes in the series.



    There's a blood drought in Philadelphia and Rittenhouse is out of blood. Robert comes up with the idea that everyone who walks into the hospital has to donate blood & in return they get free ice cream thanks to his connections. Now, how could anyone turn such a great offer down. I know I wouldn't. You have to admit it was a pretty good idea.



    Peter was in charge of the whole thing & it was funny watching him ask those questions to everyone, starting with Robert. The part when he asked him if he'd ever slept with another guy, I was LMAO. The look on Roberts face was priceless.



    And I can't forget the look on the nun's face when he asked if she'd ever slept with anyone for money. I know it routine to ask these questions but I think the answer is pretty obvious. I couldn't stop laughing at that.moreless
  • Doctors race against time to save patients during a severe blood shortage.

    I thought this episode was absolutely well-written. Exciting, left me on the edge of my seat while I was wondering "is the blood going to get there in time?!", and I cried during the end of the story about the dog with Lyme Disease. The original summary on the site stated the family that owned the dog was a dog fighting family BUT in actuality, the mother did not KNOW the dog existed because the daughter had found the dog as a stray (a former dog fighter) and had taken care of the dog without telling her mother.moreless
