Probably, the most important episode in the whole season
21 March 2011 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

This episode fades in with what can be depicted as Abby entering the ER, heading for the locker's room, in an atmosphere that symbolizes transition, transcendence: from the very beginning, it becomes evident enough that this episode will be filled with deep emotions, and at the same time, sad eyes (if it happens to be the case of a die-hard fan). As she opens her locker, she discerns a Holy bible, and starts reading. When it comes to medicine, this episode has nothing uncommon, just pretty much every-day handled situations. Dr. Banfield and Abby are introduced while treating a chest-bullet-wounded man, and sparks between the two arouse. Abby is aware that somehow, she'd eventually replace her post, metaphorically speaking. This episode is very important if you've been following the series from its start (or at least as of season 10). Mixed emotions, sense of nostalgia is felt all along.
