The Right Thing (#2.14)
5 December 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

In this episode we see several characters trying to do the right thing. The main of course is Peter. I really like his storyline. He is a pretty interesting character and this issue is very fitting to him, wonder how it will resolve.

Susan's story about the girl who had AIDS and didn't want to tell it to her boyfriend is kind of boring, just made me wonder if one really has a right not to tell the person one is sleeping with that one has AIDS??? Maybe things have changed since 1996.

Now, there is something happening with Carter, I have a feeling he will have something big happening soon.
