A Boy Falling Out of the Sky (#9.15)
12 April 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The story about the teenager who has cancer is pretty sad. Is it good for him to still try to fight when it was said he has no chance? Well, in some cases it makes it easier for people who have it to keep on fighting. Some have it easier by accepting what is coming and spend the last days with their families, others will not enjoy it without some hope anyways.

So it looks like Abby's brother is alive, the pessimist that she is as not right this time. But ew, why does Carter want to marry her. I really don't get what positive quality he may see in her. She is like a cancer herself.

And another relationship I don't get is why Pratt likes Chen. She is better than Abby but still annoying. Yet, this brings some fun moments like today when Pratt was talking how homosexuals have it all figured out.

Weaver was great in this episode. She didn't have too much screen time, but when she was on it she was great. Yelling at the guy who stole her purse, dealing with Luka and talking about trying a new baby.
