Storyline

Corday clashes with new surgical resident Paul Nathan regarding his intervention into the treatment of a sickly young woman, Alison, who has signed a "do not resuscitate" order. Abby wonders about the erratic behavior of her visiting brother Eric, and feels conflicted over a nurse's official complaint against Kovac, Abby's former lover. Meanwhile, Pratt comforts Chen after a patient threatens her, and Corday suspects that an unconscious 14-year-old female patient has been sexually assaulted. Written by Anonymous

One Can Only Hope (#9.6)
10 April 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

An interesting episode. One great story was about the girl with a bad lung disease who has accepted her death but her father as well as Paul don't want her to give up hope. It is interesting as one can't tell what is right, sometimes there is really no way out and accepting it helps one to die in peace. But at the same time, is there really no way out? Paul has good points that she has support and there is progress happening in science. Also touching the fact that politics stands in the way of the progress.

Also looking forward to what will happen to Luka. This seems like the nurse was mad because it didn't work out, yet the rest of the nurses are on her side. I actually am on the side of Abby and Luka here. Romano was pretty funny.

A bit of shocker is thee girl who one thought was raped but actually does drugs and has rough sex with multiple partners willingly
