The Plot of the Guy stealing the tank in this episode has a remarkable resemblance to Shawn Nelson, who also had back and neck problems, was angry with Medical, and Government facilities, and went on a rampage also with an M60 tank, similar to the one with the episode. It also ends in a very similar way, with police opening the hatch of the tank and gassing the inside, and finally shooting the suspect (3 times in the show, 1 time in real life) and he later died in the hospital from his injuries (the show's managed to survive).

Forgive and Forget (#10.16)
17 April 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

An exciting episode. Mainly because of the crazy guy who stole a tank to come back and kill Morris as he promised. It was pretty fun, mainly because of Morris's reactions. When he told others what the guy said before he left the hospital. Believing Abby saying that there will be a helicopter with a big magnet and them all observing it. Then it also got exciting as the guy was shot and brought in where Morris as well had to work on saving his life.

Frank's story was also great. I wonder if they did it because the viewers started to dislike Frank. He kept on making some pretty bigoted comments and unlike Romano who was also a bigot wasn't as funny. But this story with his heart attack gave him lots of humanity. When we see the kid he adopted we see him as a man with a heart. And it was also sweet to hear how he always has stories about his work and thought highly of Neela. Frank is now a better man in my eyes and in many viewer's I am sure.

Well, I have an issue when people say they want casual relationship and then get mad if the person who they told it to follows it. So I see no reason for Sam to be mad at Luka. I didn't like Gillian, but in this story she is the only one I felt bad for. At least Sam didn't keep on being nasty to Luka about it.
