Lockdown (#8.22)
7 April 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is a very eventful episode. At a busy day Carter looks at two kids who seem to have a small pox. So to stay safe they have to lock down the hospital and deal with the sick ones as well as the angry patients.

A pretty great idea and the season now has a cliffhanger as we are waiting to find out what exactly it is and how they will get to solve the problem.

I was pretty irritated by the people inside. Jeez, now those are some kids and not adults. Carter telling them that this was done to protect them and their families should not even have been necessary, everybody with a functional brain should grasp it.
