It's a day of birthdays. Peter Benton's mother is celebrating a birthday and he tries desperately to find someone to cover his shift.

The Birthday Party (#1.17)
22 November 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This episode has in common all the different birthday parties with their conflicts as well as getting us closer to the difficult decisions our main characters will soon have to make. One of the toughest ones seems to be Peter and the fact that he can' take care of his mother while being a resident. Him deciding to put her into the nursing home is the one part I dread the most. A very good and emotional story very well acted.

So is the story of Greenes who soon will have to separate. I like how they made it that it is impossible to dislike either one of them, they both seem to be right. Just two people whose goals in life just seem not to work well together.
