Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Dr. Jing-Mei Chen (as Ming-Na)


Carter defends his protege Neela when Weaver and other doctors rate the residents. Carter urges his student to be more proactive in the emergency room, but Neela goes too far in treating a patient with a brain injury--and sympathetic Gallant errs further by falsifying a medical report. Meanwhile, Chuck (recurring guest star DONAL LOGUE) protects pregnant Lewis from a pervert who is harassing her. Kovac treats a disoriented young boy whose dad fears that tests will reveal he is not the boy's biological father. Chen is unable to find a caretaker for her combative father. And Corday is uneasy about dating two men at once. Former series star PAUL McCRANE directed the episode. Written by Anonymous

The Student (#10.17)
18 April 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The main story of the episode was Neela trying to be more decisive as Carter tells her that this is what she has to improve for her evaluation. And she makes a big mistake that Gallant tries to take on himself. Really, after this show one would be scared going to ER, so many stories where people die because of mistakes. But it was pretty good. I especially felt for Gallant including the last conversation with Carter. Hope it works out, I like this character.

The story about creeps was also pretty good. The one with Chuck defending Susan was pretty funny. And I must say I often see Patrick Kerr play some weird guys.

Also a touching story about the guy who finds out his kid is not his son but doesn't want to tell it to his wife and he sees the kid as his son anyways. So true, being a father is way more than biology where it matters the most. I also liked how Luka said to Sam that he is the father when she asked.

Directed by Paul McCrane (Romano), I liked the way it was structured.
