Not for the faint of heart. Trauma is like one of those A ticket rides at a hopped up amusement park. The action comes fast and furious.
***** Spoilers *****
The climax of the show is one unbelievable ride as we get to see a man walk calmly through a building shooting anyone he sees or hears. Another casualty of downsizing this former IT worked figures the way to get back at his employer is to go out in a blaze of glory taking as many with him as possible.
Rabbit and Nancy are sent in with the SWAT team as they are certified for this kind of high risk engagement. At the same time Cameron realizes his wife is trapped in the building and in harms way and there is nothing he can do about it. Basically everyone responds to this tragedy and the scene becomes one big triage center like a battle zone. The final numbers twelve dead, twenty eight wounded, and Cameron realizes after risking his life and saving the man hiding with his wife that she was in the building talking to a lawyer. We are left to put the pieces of that together ourselves. Rabbit puts his life on the line when Nancy is trying to treat a shooting victim and the shooter returns. Seeing that she is a paramedic, the shooter gives her a chance to back away from the woman but Nancy refuses. She says, "I've got my work and you've got yours." Just then Rabbit comes walking up distracts the shooter who shoots him and a SWAT member takes the shooter out. Rabbit is wearing Kevlar so other than a major welt he should be fine. He did save Nancy and probably the girls life as well.
Everything else in this episode pales in comparison, but there were two other excellent scenes that need to be mentioned. Marisa, while running comes across a two car and one motorcycle accident. The bike riders eyes are distended and he can't see. Marisa pops them back in place and they start to work. Freaky! Also Rabbit brings along some frozen saline when he hears they have a spinal injury call come in. While in transit he basically freezes the spinal cord from the inside to keep the swelling down as the boy could not feel his legs. He had read this in a medical journal and knew it would work so he saved the kid from being paralyzed. Seriously, would you ride a skateboard down the roads on the hills of San Fransisco? You have very little control on one of those things.
An entertaining and quick forty two minutes and not for the faint of heart. Thanks for reading...
