Just tell me … how many times in one episode of ER can they make me cry? I think I’m up to #5 now, and it’s not even over yet – there is still 15 minutes left in the show. More below – but be warned – spoilers!
WARNING: Spoiler! Do not read this if you don’t want to know what happened. Ok. Are we clear? Are you sure? Then go ahead…
How about that letter? WHOA. First of all, I didn’t expect it at the beginning of the show – I figured it would be at the end. Then – what it said. Even then, I didn’t expect the ending – I didn’t expect Dr. Corday’s note about Mark being dead. And I’m bummed because I really, really liked him.
I don’t like Dr. Lewis. I didn’t like her character that much 5 years ago, and she has bugged me ever since she returned this season.
Would Abby & Carter PLEASE just finally get together??? All though I did agree with Abby for biting him when he tried to take her off to AA. I agree with AA and I think it has helped tons of people – but that was not the right moment for it. Just my opinion though.
So I cried when Carter read the letter. Then I cried when Kerry was reading the letter. Then I got misty-eyed when Jing Mai (is that her name? Asian female doctor…) read the letter and when Angry Doctor (the surgeon dude, you know) read it. Then when Kerry was on the train talking about Mark, and when Abby & Carter were at the restaurant talking about him. And now while Dr. Lewis & Dr. Carter were talking about him in the break room. Wow.
You know, you always wonder how they will handle such a central character leaving – and this time I think they did it really, really well. When George Clooney & Julianna whats-her-name left, I thought that was pretty lame. This was handled much better, if you asked me.
Ok, off to watch the final 15 minutes. I needed a break from my sob-fest.
