They Treat Horses, Don't They? (#5.3)
18 February 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A good episode with a variety of interesting patients. There was a guy with a knife in his head, a guy with a bomb and even a horse.

I did like the horse story, it was of course very small and mainly humorous but I loved how they did it. Mark was trying to get closer to his daughter after he noticed in the morning that she won't talk to him the way she does to her mother. And Jerry was pretty awesome in it, ah his face when dealing with a horse!.

Carter had to make an important and hard decision. This story about the old lady without DNR had a lot of good scenes. He really looked more mature than ever before. Although one was not surprised, it was the only way for it to end.

We also have a familiar face, Ashley Johnson, as Dana Ellis, a young cancer patient who may lose her leg. I recognized her face and turned out she was Krissy Seaver on growing Pains. Really disliked her on that show but she was pretty good here.

The star of the episode to me though was Dr. Weaver. She was showing a lot of emotions such as stress and irritation, absolutely great acting and am looking to see what will happen to her and the title.
