May Day (#6.22)
10 March 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A nice ending of the season. It is great what they did about Carter and to me it was also very unexpected. They pretty much threw it at us inn one episode and dealt with it at the same time. I guess it was great to set us in the same mood that the ER people had when they found out what happened to Cater. Absolutely great acting. They all were absolutely great, besides maybe Maura Tierney. I was trying to figure out today if I dislike her as an actress or just Abby as character. Noah Wyle just was doing to perfection. Eriq La Salle was also great. The scene of him and Carter was done greatly.

Liked the story about the pregnant girl as well. Loved how it ended. Glad she got it the way she wanted and didn't let this fetus lover and wanna be judge push her into it. I think he should already be fired, even if only in this episode after playing judge and not saving the shooters life.
