Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Dr. Luka Kovac (credit only)
Dr. Jing-Mei Chen (as Ming-Na)


On his return to Chicago, Carter gets a downright chilly reaction from Abby who asks him to return her apartment key. At work, they tip toe around one another, neither really willing to discuss their feelings. A new med student, Neela Rasgotra arrives for her ER rotation. Dr. Pratt is paying too much attention to her for Dr. Chen's taste. A woman passes out at the wheel of her car severely injuring herself and the three children in the car with her. Neela makes a good call in the case. Carter treats a man whose HIV has become full-blown AIDS. The ER itself is a bit chaotic due to major reconstruction. The ER desk receives a call from Africa saying that Luka Kovac has been killed. Carter decides to return to the Congo to retrieve his body. Written by garykmcd

Did You Know?


Two different Volvo station wagons are used in the crash sequence: in the first shots, a champagne gold 700/800 model series wagon is shown as evidenced by the door panel detailing, and the taillight/rear hatch design; in the shots when the truck is bearing down and making contact, a yellow gold 200 series wagon is shown which has the signature "boxy" early Volvo shape as well as the old Volvo insignia tag on the side panel and the non-metallic paint.

Dr. Robert Romano: This department is a money pit!
Dr. Kerry Weaver: We have more people coming through the door everyday and we're legally obligated to treat them.
Dr. Robert Romano: Which is why we should grab some wood, nail the entrance shut, and paint "Go Away" in big letters.

Now What? (#10.1)
15 April 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Carter is back and Abby is being all nasty. he should have thrown the keys into her face and never really talk to her. It can be all a good thing for him to get rid of her, but I hope they won't make him be all sad about his "mistake", just like they did with Luka. It is unbelievable anyone even talks to the nasty person that she is.

In the hospital there are new things happening. Gallant is now a doctor! And there is a new student Neela who has to deal with all the new things for her. Also there is some construction happening that makes the hospital seem even more intense.

I like how they made Neela pick up the phone to find out about Luka's death as she never knew who he is, and the reactions of others were just great. Sad that he died, there are other characters that one should have been gotten rid of before him. But at least it makes Carter go back to Africa, let's see how it goes this time.
