Storyline

Carol Hathaway returns to work after her suicide attempt. Doug Ross still feels guilty about what happened. An ER patient found walking he streets takes to singing, constantly. Susan Lewis has a run-in with the cardiologist on duty, Dr. Kayson, when he disagrees with her treatment of a heart attack victim. At a case review session, she gets very little support from her colleagues. She also treats a woman who is dying of leukemia and who has good advice for Hathaway. Greene treats a woman who has obviously been beaten by her husband but can't get to agree to get help. Written by garykmcd

A great turning point for the series
19 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Episode in this weeks "About" is called "Going Home" and originally aired 9/29/1994. The episode centers on nurse Hathaway's first day back on the job after her attempted suicide. The episode is strong, moving, and powerful (as were the previous two) but lacked a little bit of luster that the original two episodes had. The script is sometimes spotty leaving the viewer to wonder what exactly was left on the cutting room floor. Some highlights though are Dr. Carters performance on a strange singing lady (played wonderfully by Rosemary Clooney). All in all this is a so-so episode recommended for fans of the first season. 7 out of 10 stars.
