Sleepless in Chicago (#1.18), 22 November 2014
Author: ComedyFan2010 from Canada

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Now there comes more development into the conflicts of our doctors. I like the twist they put into the Carol adopting Tatiana story. It was not my favorite but now her not being able to have Tatiana because of her suicide attempt makes it more interesting. Also it connects to the story of the woman that burned the kid and losing her. Not that Carol hurt Tatiana in any way, but she is unable to have the child because of being "damaged".

I also liked the small story about Carter taking care off the dying man who had no family. A very sad and yet beautiful story that also makes one like his character a lot. A great scene where he was reading to the man.
