Walk Like a Man (#9.4)
9 April 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Weaver made me really laugh this episode. Both with her embarrassing mistake on television during which her face was hilarious as well as when she told Michael that she will overlook him hitting a doctor because it was Pratt.

There was actually more humor with Luka's story. Ah that lucky mother, yes even with the sick kid, doing Luka in a hospital room is a wonderful fantasy.

Michael's story was pretty great as well. This was his learning moment to stand by his diagnosis as him stepping back did cost one of them her life. Very well thought story and great acting by Sharif Atkins as well as the rest of them involved.

Also some relationship drama by Carter and Abby, I think I would not be as understanding if someone would out my alcoholism.
