"Dan, Peter dedicated his life to saving others.If there's anything good that can come from this nightmare, it's that he can still save my son's life."
It's very hard to tell what's going on at the start of this one, as we are treated to a bunch of characters milling around in poor lighting. We aren't even told that Eve and Tracey have bought the farm, we're just supposed to deduce it from a quick fly past of their bodies.Once it becomes clear that most of our heroes have survived more or less intact, things get a bit more coherent as a rescue operation is mounted for those still trapped inside.
Which leads us into Peter's apparent death.Watching the episode in retrospect, and knowing that plans were already in place to bring him back, there is some nice foreshadowing that ties in nicely with what we learn later.In context, though, the standout moment of the episode is Tony talking Dan into donating Peter's liver:even though Jack is his priority, there's a sense that he's actually taking time to help Dan through his grief.Despite the pyrotechnics on display, the best television is two people in a room together having a meaningful conversation.
There's to be no reprieve for Elaine, who makes her departure in this episode.The moment where she remembers Kim just before she dies is very poignant.
