When Night Meets Day (#9.21)
13 April 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The day when there is a solar eclipse a lot is happening in the ER. They have really selected some great variety of cases for this episode. There is a lot of constant action and excitement in this episode as well as emotions. The best part is that after all of this that happened during the day Pratt decides to stay in this hospital as it grew on him, happy to hear as he is a great character that I would miss.

One character like that had his arm finally amputated today. Dr. Romano. He still caused some great moments even in such a sad situation by having Elizabeth write "not this one, idiot" on his healthy arm. This is what he is like, and it was really sad to see his arm go into the bag....
