Dr. Archie Morris: Don't you know that there's a rule that if millions of kids believe in the same thing, it becomes real?
Melia Simon: That's not a rule.
Dr. Archie Morris: Yeah. Every time you're generous, or thoughtful, or help someone who needs help, that's a little bit of Santa too.

City of Mercy (#13.11)
27 May 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

In this episode we are getting closer to something happening in the story with Luka and Curtis. Luka gets a restriction order. I have a feeling this is not the end.

Other than that it is all Christmas. Morris was great in this episode. That Bible group scene was pretty funny. Same was him refusing to go with Hope as he would want a better relationship. I am pretty sure they will end up together. And the final with the Santa apparently flying above him was cute.

The homeless kids are back and now it gets wrapped up. This time the story was pretty good. Masam Holden was pretty great as the kid in this episode.
