    A nifty lighting rod couple- Lyla and Neil.

    She was arguably responsible for five deaths and the potential retardation of their hard-to-concieve unborn child.

    He was supportive and very lovingly hands-on in his relationship with Lyla. Post-emergency, he questioned her, physically became distant, and attempted to kill the man who actually put his family in danger in one fell swoop!

    Their talk about potential nannies was great and unexpected. (I couldn't tell if Lyla was pulling Neil's leg or if she meant what she was saying.)

    The restaurant scene, pre-review board, showed how far- in one episode-two characters can retreat from each other.

    I cannot see two other actors tackle these roles; Michelle Forbes and Martin Donovan were perfect.

    What do you think? *g*

    Anyone think that Lyla and Neil were going to be made to face the question of late term abortion? Not saying they'd do one, especially not at that point in time, but whether something would develop in the baby and the suggestion to think that option would be explored?

    Does anyone think Neil could've suffered a meltdown/breakdown as the season played out and the uncertainty of the baby kept weighing on him? The first two episodes were very fertile for setting it up after a potential calm/'regrouping' period. Maybe Banger or Derrick notice, but are told to watch and wait. Especially as Neil seemed to be heading for the 'cool, detatched, but understanding shrink' characterization.
