Alone in a Crowd (#11.15)
25 April 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A pretty awesome episode. Great to see Cynthia Nixon as a guest star, and she also got a great story. It is about a woman that has a stroke, and can't communicate while she is aware. They made it so well, transferring her panic towards us, this was the best way to make one think how horrible such a situation would be.

Neela's story about the kids who bring a man as their father but it turns out he isn't one is also pretty good. Especially as we find out that it was done because their mother died and they were basically living with a corpse.

Hope Pratt ends up being chief resident next season, he would be great for it.
