Episode #2.12
26 March 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

My favorite part of this episode was Debbie trying to find out the identity of the young guy that was found in the garbage. It is a bit unbelievable that she would get his identity from the pharmacy guy.But I loved how at the end the police officer came to tell her about what he found. Since she seems to be the only one who cared about that guy, which itself is sad but at the same time makes it kind of sweet because at least after his death he finally had someone who cared for him

Interesting tensions between Ben and Michael and also Michael and Brian after Michael finds out that Ben and Brian did it in the past. I really liked all the conversations they had and how Michael was dealing with it
