Dead of Winter (#2.11)
30 November 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I am a bit surprised by how Jennifer sends Mark divorce papers. Sure it was obvious that they will separate but I didn't expect it to happen in such a vicious manner.

The story about the kids was a good idea, not just did it bring up a racial matter, but it also gives us a parallel to Susans situation who also takes care of the kid of a relative who does drugs.

The thing with the older woman who had a baby was pretty fun, now that is a surprise I would never want to get in my life.

And we also get the topic of caring about patients. Michael is nicer than I remember him ever be to the boy at the end and Carter is very sweet to the old man.
