    Well, tonight's the episode with the helicopter crash right outside the ER entrance.

    And the person who might not make through the episode might not be the one rumored to be, who was Rocket Romano,
    the most obvious choice given the way the ads have been cut together, so guess who just might get it instead?

    Here's a clue: it's someone who's recently undertaken a new job career path...
    Gasp!

    Patrick,

    Based on your clue, I'm thinking

    Abby


    But I cannot believe that they would get rid of that person.

    I was believing Romano


    But I second guessed it when I asked myself what would he be doing in a helicopter


    Then I remembered my TV history and whenever they tout a big death, it is usually a throwaway character so I was thinking Donal Logue's character. Does he ride in the helicopter sometimes?


    Guess we'll see later

    That's my thought after seeing the "Previously on ER" clips before the show. We'll see...

    We still have 15 minutes and multiple candidates. Might be a switcheroo...or not.

    What a shitty week for TV

    First

    Rupert is voted out of Survivor which ruins the whole game for me


    and Romano is apparently dead...although we haven't seen a body yet


    Sucks

    Well, it speaks volume that no one really went to go look for Romano, didn't it?

    That was one intense day at the ER. Glad Abby survived. It was amazing how much more comfortable she is as a nurse at the end of the episode.

    It looks like John "Grizzly" Carter has been shacking up with Thandie Newton in the Congo.

    Susan might just let Chuck into her heart after almost losing him today.

    Does Gallant do much more than just show up?

    Morris is still a worthless waste of space.

    Pratt dodges more than helicopter shrapnel with the non-appearance of Romano at the meeting with Anspaugh.

    Kovach and Sam ... victim of kid cupid?

    I can't believe they killed off Romano. I know he was an asshole, but he was also a very entertaining character to watch. The shot where we see the chopper falling on him looked like a Wile E. Coyote moment. Even he didn't deserve to go out like that.

    I guess that makes it sound like I didn't like the episode, but I did. It was pretty intense and that's just what I was expecting from the ads.

    Ok, just one more nitpick. What was the point of cutting to Carter in Africa? Sure, I liked seeing Thandie Newton again, but the scene just felt out of place.

    Had we seen Thandie Newton before?

    As for the Rocket, I wonder if the next episode will just fast forward to a point in time when everybody knows that he is gone, or if they will show the workers pulling that arm our of the pavement.

    No more spoilers needed for this episode's discussion. The thread's been titled, and most people know to stay out of a thread if it hasn't shown up in their time zone.

    Thandie's a new character. The cut to Carter is just to tide the fans over the break until the next batch of new episodes.

    Romano might have gotten his point across if Pratt didn't have to perform his miracles in Anspaugh's presence due to the helicopter crash.

    Great episode, great Abby moment.

    As much as I like Carter, the show's been a heck of alot stronger since he's gone. Last season was Carter and Abby TV. The last few episodes have returned to the ensemble drama, pushing to medicine to the forefront and the soap opera to the background.

    What a bitter twist of irony with Romano. And it was fitting that no one cared that the was missing. A really fitting swan song for him.

    But NBC can't afford to let Carter fans twist in the wind until January without a Carter sighting...
