Storyline

On Christmas Eve, Richard refuses son Harry a pay-rise which 'would look like favoritism'. The only corpse in Davis' morgue is a Santa died of natural causes, actually the one who fails to turns up at his traitorous lover Carrie's kids center's party, so he promises to fill in, albeit with weird presents. Tru's day reverts unexpectedly by a call for help from a six months old donated corps in her Hudson University med school while she's with Jensen Ritchie. Meanwhile Harrison stands Tru up for their Christmas party after checking up on dad, whom he suspects of infidelity to his second wife Jordan, but surprises in his supposed love-nest meeting with Jack- dad nearly strangles the embarrassing witness. As the college website won't identify the corps, Tru turns to Jack, who remembers her last sight: a car crash scene, where flowers were laid, paid for by Anne Moore; indeed she lost six months ago her sister Allison and takes care of her teenage daughter Cambria. The unnatural allies ... Written by KGF Vissers

Great Episode - Not an ending
25 May 2006 | by See all my reviews

I really liked this episode. It's good and your learn a lot about what direction the story would have taken. The end of the episode seems to make the story that small bit 'darker' as the viewer finds out things that Tru doesn't.

For some reason I am not allowed to give URLs but if you want to find more about where the story was going. And what would have happened to Jensen (as he wasn't meant to live and kinda goes crazy because of it!) then e-mail me and i'll be happy to give you a link to one of the story writers blogs which contains a lot of information about it.

It's not an ending. And that makes me mad. FOX really p*** me off but there isn't a large amount you can do about it but complain to them.
