A Thousand Cranes (#9.16)
12 April 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This episode starts with a very gory moment when Chen and Luka find an assassination happened in the diner across the street. And this also goes into the story of racial profiling. Would fit into today's time as well considering all the stories we hear all the time. Well portrayed both by the doctors and the cops.

Susan has a great time with the cancer patient talking to him about his fears and what he hoped for in life. This is actually such a sad story but so well and sincerely done by them all.

Glad Carter didn't propose to Abby, ssh would be a mistake. Luka really needs to see a shrink if he thinks what he has with Abby was anything good or worth missing.
