Last Rites (#6.2)
3 March 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Things change in the ER. Romano gives his previous position to Elizabeth and she needs to deal with it. Some of the patients also change their mind, even when nothing can be done anymore. The more intense of these stories is about a young woman who is dying and is on DNR. But she tells Mark that she doesn't want to die and he tries to save her even though it is obvious she won't make it. A very good story as it raises a pretty good ethical question and also feels so extremely sad.

An old woman who wanted no priest ends up asking for one and Luke pretends to be one to let her have more peace when dying. And it is pretty good because as he said all that matters is faith.

Unfortunately Jeanie won't get the baby, at least the way it looks now, but her responding to the marriage proposal now that she knew she didn't do it to get the baby was the sweetest part of the episode.
