Survival of the Fittest (#7.17)
18 March 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

One of the impressive stories in this episode is about the old lady with dementia who grabs a gun and then gets shot by a cop. I am with Peter here, there was no reason to kill her... Felt bad for her family at the end.

Other stories have something to do with reproduction. There is a teenage girl who is pregnant and wants to keep her baby. And Luka deals with her.

Then there is another story about a woman getting a blood clot and a stroke because she was selling her eggs to help the family business, also pretty sad.

And Elizabeth dealing with Romano discriminating her because of her pregnancy. The disgusted look she gave him at some point was hilarious. As well as her wanting to pee during operation when he doesn't let her on a bathroom break.
