Think Warm Thoughts (#4.11)
28 December 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I am glad they went on with the rapist of old women story. It can be pretty interesting. This poor woman today, they made an awesome scene with her and Carol at the end of today's episode. Will be in interesting how it will get resolved, although we will probably not find anything out as this is not a detective show.

While the rest of the stories were good ideas as well, I can't say I was too caught into any of them too much. I guess there will be more of Dr. Anspaugh's son. Jeanie taking care of him was pretty well done today.

The old drunk homeless story of Carter's wasn't bad either I am still just amazed how they let random people walk into operation room.
