The Greatest of Gifts (#7.9)
17 March 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Mark goes to get a second opinion. And it looks like he has another chance and the neurologist will be operating him. It is great there is this hope now. Hope they won't kill him off anyways during the operation as it will be very soon, not ready to lose Mark yet.

Chen having her baby was also a good story. They also made me think she will keep it, luckily she gave it to the nice couple. And Carter had a good part on being a great friend for her.

So happy that it looks like the dog won't have to die! I thought they will kill the poor animal because of a child again. This episode is really full of pleasant surprises.

And Weaver had a kiss with Kim! Was a good scene, but yes obviously nothing will follow.
