Death and Taxes (#10.7)
16 April 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A pretty tragic ending to the story of the man going blind whom Susan visited to keep him from depression. He ended up killing himself by shooting into his head. A pretty sad part when she gets too see who it is and then end up deciding not to revive him as he would wanted so, it is understandable after she knew him already and wouldn't want him to suffer again.

Romano brings some laughs again with his artificial hand that is now harassing women in the ER, but also shows a sensitive moment when he has to tell the raped prisoner that he has HIV.

I kind of wonder if that picture of Samantha's kid's head won't end up having something bad in it. I have a feeling this may be a story.

And this episode Betsy Brandt from Breaking Bad is in. A pretty good work here. Neela seems to have done a good decision to not rat her out, she is better than most of them
