Twas the Night (#11.9)
23 April 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A Christmas episode that is pretty sad. The big part of it is that this is the last episode of Dr. Chen. She quits on Christmas Eve as nobody can be found to cover for her and Susan doesn't want to let her have a night off. The story is pretty good as it involved Chen's dying father. She decides to provide him with the euthanasia that he wants. Pratt who comes to see her after he hears about her quitting is first against it, but he supports her through it. Very good and thoughtful episode that sometimes is a bit painful to watch. I never really liked Dr. Chen's character and am happy that she leaves especially with such a powerful story, but Ming-Na Wen is a great actress and her talent is well seen in this episode.
