Storyline

Scott Anspaugh's cancer has returned and he requires another operation. The results show that he will need another round of chemotherapy. Dr. Anspaugh asks Jeanie Boulet if she would work with his son as a part-time caregiver. Kerry Weaver begins to have doubts about the wisdom of Synergix taking over the ER. John Carter's cousin Chase shows up at the hospital suffering from withdrawal. John decides to help him, but not the way Chase wants. Anna Del Amico decides to give him a hand. Carol Hathaway goes on a paramedic ride along and they attend to another elderly rape victim. She also finds herself attracted to paramedic Greg Powell. Her fiancé Doug Ross is planning a romantic evening. Allison Beaumont has an operation to restore her voice and Benton and Corday go out for a drink afterward. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

Chase Carter's apartment is the same set that is used for Abby and Luka's apartment later in the series. If you notice, the wall color (green) and the fireplace are identical. There are also staircases in both apartments on the same side. See more »

Goofs

Doug Ross tells Carol Hathaway he was waiting for her at the corner of Dearborn and Clark. Dearborn St. and Clark St. run parallel to each other and do not cross, so this would be impossible. See more »

Sharp Relief (#4.12)
10 February 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I took a break from the show for over a month but it was not hard to go back into it in the middle of some story lines. It all is easy to remember. This episode is also a bit more quiet but still prepares us for the next things to happen.

One sad thing is the story of Carol and Doug, it seems the producers don't want to get the two of them together. But I wonder if there will be fighting until the end of the season or if it is over.

On the other hand something may happen between Peter and Corday. Actually their time together at the bar was pretty well done and funny.

Carter taking care of his cousin doesn't seem to be a very well done story. Too rushed and fake.
