Storyline

Both Mark Greene and Susan Lewis have been on a round on unsuccessful blind dates but are enjoying each other's company whenever the opportunity arises. Doug Ross on the other hand finds it almost impossible to have any kind of an emotional relationship with a woman. Hathaway is having financial difficulties and desperately wants to sell her house. Carter sleeps in and finds he is again covering the ER while Dennis Gant gets to assist in an operation. Concerned by Jeanie Boulet's HIV status, Dr. Benton pushes her aside during a trauma leading Dr. Weaver to wonder just what is going on. All of the staff at County General is on edge as rumors fly that the hospital may be closed. Written by garykmcd

Let the Games Begin (#3.2)
8 December 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Well, one of the issues of this episode was that the ER was in danger of being closed. But obviously it would not be happening, so I had no worries. And it is not just obvious to me because I watch it in the year 2014 and know there are another 12 seasons ahead, but because it happened in the beginning of the season and people would guess that it can't happen.

Jeanie's story is pretty interesting though. I feel horrible for her, not even getting the disease but also now having trouble about her work. In a way Michael has a point, but at the same it time it is true she shouldn't let it take over her life and let it be ruined.
