Start All Over Again (#8.5), 24 March 2015
Author: ComedyFan2010 from Canada

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Susan is having her first day back and it is almost like she never left. she still has her great relationships with Mark and with Carter. She also had some fun cases this episode, especially the guy who didn't ant to get naked.

So now there is the whole confusion about Reese. guess there will be fights over him. I can see why step dad doesn't want to lose him. But wow, how can they just let people talk about the kid during operation, Romano was having the most sense there.

There are some fun moments with students that Carter deals with who end up hitting him with a shock.
