Storyline

Doug accepts an offer to work in a private pediatric practice. After his last ER shift he's on his way to a fund raiser when he gets a flat tire. In the pouring rain a boy comes up to his car because his brother is stuck in a flooded culvert. Doug doesn't hesitate and does everything he possibly can to save the kid. A news TV helicopter films part of the rescue attempt and Doug becomes a local hero. Meanwhile the ER staff plays Doom II and Benton, Carter and Harper try to save a young girl who was the victim of a hit-and-run. Written by Marco van Hoof <k_luifje7@hotmail.com>

Hell and High Water (#2.7)
28 November 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Doug is already well established as a character we like, but in this episode he totally took it all the way. And this episode is also full of action. From the moment the little brother of the trapped boy comes running to Doug for help until the very last minute it is all extremely intense and keeps us on the edge.

The part in the tunnel is amazing, great acting and the interaction between Doug and the boy is very well done. George Clooney did some great acting there. The whole idea with the news helicopter bringing them and all the reporters being around was pretty great as well. Especially them observing Doug with the kid in the helicopter from the ER. And also I liked this very well done parallel of the girl who ends up dying while this boy survives.Definitely a great episode.
