Exodus (#4.15)
10 February 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

An episode with a lot of disasters that get handled very well. My favorite part is Elizabeth going on a ride along and ending up in a pretty hard situation when a building collapses. She ends up saving the man's life risking her own. This was pretty thrilling and I must say they filmed it so well. I had trouble looking sometimes because I started to feel claustrophobic just from it on the screen.

Another problem arises in the ER when it gets infected by fumes and Carter has to take control over it once Dr. Weaver passes out. He ends up doing a great job. This is one of the moments when carter develops into a more confident doctor I assume. Watching it I was remembering him as the new intern coming to the hospital and being overwhelmed, now what a big way he has gone!
