Good Touch, Bad Touch (#4.5)
28 December 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This episode has a lot of angry emotions in it and those are performed wonderfully by the actors. First of all there is Mark who has to deal with a law suit again. His is boiling with frustration through the whole episode, and he really lets it out during the meeting with the lawyers. Hope it won't get him too much trouble.

The ending is also powerful when Al beats up that ex colleague of his for calling him faggot. Can't say that I feel bad at all in this case, I was really rooting for Al.

Besides this we get some moments in between where Anna deals with a patient who may lose a testicle because of cancer and Carter struggling with the surgeons. But Peter ends up giving him some great appraisal that fits very well into the timing.
