Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): Gabriel Lawrence says that the poem "The Peace of Wild Things" was written by William Blake. It was actually written by Wendell Berry. (It is possible that this is a subtle indication of his failing memory.)See more »

Dr. Gabe Lawrence:I was thinking of committing suicide, but I wasn't sure when I should do it. If I did it too early, I'd miss out on what little life I had left. If I waited too long, I wouldn't remember to do it.

The Peace of Wild Things (#6.6), 4 March 2015
Author: ComedyFan2010 from Canada

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

I hate Carol, always getting into other people's businesses and valuing fetuses over living humans. Hope she miscarries, that would be so awesome, especially if it will be done by that girl she got into jail smashing her on her big ugly pregnant stomach with a baseball bat.

So Jeanie is out. What a disappointing way to write her out. A woman throwing away her career without thinking twice because 'she always misses her family'. Ugh. I bet Peter won't throw away medicine for his son no matter how much he loves him. And she was even selfish not to notify anyone, but we have to understand, women with babies lose brain power to think about others, right.

The one good story was that about Weaver confronting Gabe about Alzheimer's. It is a terrifying disease and her struggle about it as well as his was very well portrayed.

Romano with his sperm bank bragging was also great. i keep on liking that evil character more and more.
