A River in Egypt (#8.12)
5 April 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Isn't Kerry's relationship story the repetition of what happened in her previous one? I seriously am surprised people are so not understanding that somebody wouldn't want to come out at a work place. People often like to separate privacy from their work.

Oh man is Chen getting on my nerves. I hope Kerry can beat her. Loved how she told Chen today that if she would be a good doctor she wouldn't need her in the first place, damn right!.

An interesting story regarding the guy on death row who wants to die. I hope that there will be more on it.

Abby's neighbor's story is pretty interesting as well. I kind of have an idea where it will go.
