Didn't see a thread by Mr Sun on this yet, so thought I would help out by doing it myself... Overall, I thought it was a very strong episode - possibly the strongest of the season. Nearly all (if not all)of the major characters appeared, had something to do, and some it even related to medicine! If there wasn't character development, at least there seemed to be character revealing moments for them all, even if small ones. I really liked the scene where Kovac was talking to the kid's mom, and Romano was watching. You could see Romano warring with compassion and the need to protect the hospital. Hopefully, the writers will do something consistent with Kovac. There might have been a bit too much humor, but it seemed toned down from other episodes, and there was enough serious moments to provide some nice balance. Susan finally had a storyline with some meat to it - and what a quandry. Some great writing to feel both revulsion and some sympathy for her patient. Pratt's character continues to annoy me - the "personal" moments with him I like, but as a doctor, he needs to majorly shape up. His relationship with his "brother" is touching and complex. Kerry's plotline, for once, was very good, and very well done. I normally hate her character, but was quite moved by what happened, and the moment with the deaf girl may have been professionally inappropriate, but was quite sad. And hey, ANY episode with Sofia Milos (pic below) in it can't be all bad!
