The Letter (#8.20)
6 April 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

And so Mark is dead. This is a very emotional episode as everyone is dealing with him dying. The letter read in the beginning episode was great, and a wonderful scene.

I liked how it was shown how everyone was feeling bad about him dying. This including Romano reading the letter. Weaver being very devastated and going to the drinks they had for Mark as well as not being able to clean up his locker. And of course Susan crying for her friend.

I also liked how this old dying homeless guy wanted Greene. And at the end he thought Carter was Mark and Carter stayed with him in the final moments. This is kind of symbolic as Carter is now taking Mark's place. This was also shown as he talked to Gallant who was getting sick. Reminds me of the times when he was thee young doctor and Mark (as well as Peter) encouraged him with their wisdom.
