Foreign Affairs (#9.20)
13 April 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I feel pretty bad for Carter. I must say I did get to laugh at the funeral, especially when Eric falls into the grave, but I still felt bad for poor John. I usually don't like Abby, but I didn't feel it was her fault this time. Yet, I could see Carter struggling big time trough the whole episode. Very well done.

I am worried to lose some good characters now. The story of Romano's arm seems to come to an end now that he accepts its dysfunction and plans to get an amputation. Now will he stay in the hospital? Unfortunately I feel that most likely not. Which is sad as I loved him in the ER now causing all the trouble.

And seems like Luka will go away to practice medicine in Africa, hopefully this is temporary, he may even come back at the beginning of next season
