Episode #4.6
9 May 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Amazing. So much emotion, it really got tears in my eyes.

Seeing Vic passing away was sad in itself. He was a great character and Jack Wetherall made a great job. But it made it even sadder that it died right when he finally was getting a life with his new partner. And the fact that the last interaction him and Debbie had was the fight made my heart ache for Debbie.

It brought a great thought that forgiving someone doesn't just help them, but also the person who is forgiving. Living with the thought that one didn't forgive someone one loved must be awful. I like how Blake explained it to Emmett and how Debbie's experience made him read Ted's letter.

I am now also very interested with what kind of health issue Brian will have.
