Did You Know?

Continuity: The show starts with Abbey and her son at the airport with a cut on the left side of her forehead, then the show goes back in time 15 hours. When we see how she gets the cut, she bumps her head on the door frame of the back door of a cab, but she hits it with the right side of her forehead, and when the show catches up with the beginning, the cut is back on the left side of her forehead.See more »
Dr. Archie Morris:I hooked myself up with a tight, little sex machine. Energy-efficient to the tune of 40-plus miles per gallon, and draws babes to Archie like bees to honey.
Nurse Samantha Taggart:Ew, that made me throw up in my mouth a little.

Blackout (#14.7), 25 June 2015
Author: ComedyFan2010 from Canada

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Here we see two blackouts. One is the electrical one, which i must say we don't hear too much about. And the other one is Abby's with which she ends up in bed with Dr. Moretti. I really liked this idea. They really went to how her alcoholism could ruin what is important for her in life. And now she is on her way to Luka. Let's see how this will end.

It was really great to hear the names of Mark and Doug! Ah the good old times. Was hilarious though that Sam asked "who?". Oh yes, most o the characters never met the classic ones. I miss Mark!.

And Archie didn't pass his test...But I am sure he will end up making it, he was always the one that struggled a bit.
