    I didn't realize we were still getting new episodes in December, but a happy realization.

    Hopefully we will be done with Abby's family for a while. That was a bit chilling when her brother tells that she'll never understand because she's not one of them (afflicted with the neurological condition that makes him impulsive and go AWOL).

    Ever since Abby dumped him for Carter, Kovac has been on edge. Kovac did go through that whole thing with the arch bishop, but it seems it was all for naught (after coming to grips with his wife and daughter being killed while in his country). Having Kovac cash the check from the woman who died was a little classless (especially when they show him with a lady of the night waiting in his car).
    Perhaps Kovac will finally hit rock bottom next week, and they'll build him back up (like they did with Abby).

    Chen's reaction to the abandoned baby has stirred some emotions of regret for her (since she gave up her baby to resume her career).

    The storyline with the boy living as a girl showed a lot of compassion out of Pratt's character (even if Pratt doesn't quite know how to help the boy). Pratt does have his hands full with his brother (we finally find out that he has brain damage from a bullet wound).

    Lewis has nothing to do but be the on-time, dependable cog in the system. She'll probably have a break-down this season.

    Harkins doesn't do much for me. Gallant didn't have much to do, but he also learning about stretching the truth to protect the patients (re: the RN whose son was beating her periodically) from Lewis.

    Korday is the surgical presence of the show, you'd need to bring in another surgeon if you wanted to boot Korday.

    I also think Dr. Lewis is on the verge of a break down.

    Harkins may be book smart, but she sure doesn't know the first hing about handling delicate situations. I bet her behavior gets her into some deep trouble.

    I loved the two brothers in the beginning who played "Gravity". one-1000!

    Coupla things...

    Romano directed this episode.

    The melt down doctor reminds me of a coupla storylines from St. Elsewhere:

    Peter White from day one.
    David Morse's character after the prison thing with Nick Motes and the ultimate shooting of Motes by Morse's son in the show.

    Good episode.
    I like Abby, ALOT :b , but I'm glad they're going to lay off that story-line for a while. And not just because it hits a little too close to home (my mom is bi-polar, and I'm 28.. Finger's crossed! [​IMG]). It was beginning to tie up most of the show.
    Never did like Lewis, not since she pulled that Shelley Long a few season's back..
    I knew Kovac was going to cash that cheque, what a jerk! [​IMG] I don't know why the have him playing such a lothario this season, you don't see him pining over Abby much.. Could it be something else?

    Y'all remember when Doug Ross went down this road as well (as Kovac has).

    I think it's something deeper than pining for Abby, and it'll all be sweeps-fodder.. When are the sweeps, anyway?

    Next sweeps are not until February. Seems like they're planning some excitement before then -- in fact, this coming week -- but there probably won't be more than a few more new eps in December and January.

    According to TV Tome Morgan was played by Megan Ryan Vint, which definitely sounds like a girl's name; unlike the ambiguous "Morgan".

    So...was that really Megan's hair the mom was cutting off at the end of the episode?
