Demerol Junkie
Dwight Zadro (as Monté Russell)


It's madness in the ER as they deal with an overflow of patients. Dr. Carter treats a 12 year-old hooker who is spirited away by her pimp just when he's convinced to go into a drug program. Abby's brother drops in while on his way to his new Air Force assignment. Gallant treats a woman who is an ER regular. When Dr. Pratt refuses to give a drug-addicted patient the medication he is demanding, the man returns and holds Dr. Chen at gun point until he gets what he wants. They resolve the problem of the patient and Dr. Chen is quite shaken but Dr. Carter, who had once been attacked in the ER and seriously injured, is fed up with the constant delays in installing the promised security barriers. He walks out despite the large number of patients and most of the staff join him. Several of the female staff decide to have a girls' night out and Carter is worried about Abby drinking again.

Insurrection (#9.3)
9 April 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This episode gets a bit dangerous when the guy who is waiting for pain medication get angry and holds Chen hostage until he gets some. So Carter makes a walk out until Weaver makes the ER more secure.

I kind of am on the side of Weaver here. She is the one who understands budget and how to deal with it. Of course I understand Carter as well since the guy got stabbed before. But I wonder how it may have a negative effect on the hospital in the future.

And Pratt's brother got caught by security. I probably was not looking too carefully as I don't get why it happened. I actually didn't realize it was the brother until he got home. Looking forward to more of that and Pratt.

And at the end Chen had some really good time, not a huge fan of this character but let her enjoy life more maybe she will get better.
