"Of Past Regret and Future Fear", a memorable episode
7 June 2016 | by (Out There in the Dark) – See all my reviews

I had only seen this episode once, in first broadcast and had always remembered it, and seeing it again has not diminished its strength. A young security guard is accidentally doused with a highly toxic substance (hydrochloric acid). He is rushed to the ER, and soon told by Dr. Greene that he will die in a matter of hours. The actor Michael Rapaport gives an award-worthy performance, as he slowly realizes and begins to accept his fate. It's a powerful moment in a series full of powerful moments, but one that can really stick with you. A moment's mistake or carelessness can mean the end of everything, in very little time. Carol's efforts to bring the man's ex-wife and daughter in to see him are in vain, as grudges and anger won't loosen their grip. So the man dies while Carol reads back the letter he writes to his daughter. The rest of the plot lines, interesting though they are, pale in comparison to this small unforgettable story.
