Life After Death (#15.1)
28 June 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

In this episode happened what I was afraid of the most after watching the previous one... This was the final episode for Dr. Pratt. They also played with our feelings by making us first believe that he is alright and will survive. And then suddenly it became critical. Until they pronounced him dead I was hoping that something will happen and he will survive. I would probably criticize it for being unrealistic then, but I would be so happy to see him alive. So many tears in this episode. From the characters and myself as well. Them bringing up what his life could have been if he survived was also making one feel horrible. He was about to propose and was getting the chief position. And yet that perfect life didn't happen as his life was cut short. Mekhi Phifer is a great actor and I loved him in this part. While I am very sad to see him go, I think in a way it was great to give such a great character such a dramatic and moving exit from this show...
