Judy Cochran


The police bring in another elderly rape victim but this time they also get the rapist. The ER staff is in no mood to treat him and Anna Del Amico takes John Carter to task for not giving the man the best care and letting his emotions take over his duties as a physician. Realizing she has made a major mistake, Dr. Weaver lines up support to oppose the take over of the ER by Synergix and accuses Ellis West of using her to win the contract. Carol Hathaway is having doubts about her commitment to Doug Ross while he resents her hesitation. Cynthia Hooper suggests to Mark that with her lease coming due, she should perhaps move in with him but he is obviously reluctant. Benton and Corday go out on another date. Written by garykmcd

Did You Know?


Dr. John Carter: I wanted him to die. I saw what he did to that old lady and the others before her, and I wanted him to die. I didn't think he should have that blood. I mean, if someone had come in and they really needed it... If some little kid had been hit by a car, or some old guy had been accidentally shot; if someone like that had died because we wasted the blood on that guy... I don't know. It was my decision, and I made it, and if he died, I don't know how I'd feel, but I can't say that I'm sorry. I mean...

Carter's Choice (#4.13)
10 February 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This episode has a good story regarding morality of a doctor when Carter doesn't try too hard to save the rapist that was assaulting old ladies. Him and Anna have a fight. Good idea, I just feel she accepted his explanation too easily. I just hope we will have more regarding the character.

The retarded couple having a baby got me worried for a second, I thought they might indeed take their baby away. And the moment between Doug and Carol was kind of sweet. Cynthia is annoying, hope Mark dumps her as soon as possible.

Peter and Corday though might become an interesting couple
