Married gay Dr. Micah Newton (42) is found on a 24-hours golf club, skull smashed with a single expert club blow, by a colleague, according to Patrick. Lisbon's rudeness to LaRoche before the announcement he succeeds Hightower at the team's supervisor leads to her being replaced by Cho, who instantly does a fine job. Mycah got death threats as head of the transplant unit, making suspects of his successor, the surgery chief, and those denied priority for life-saving organs. Patrick works out the mystery of Micah's radiation badge being exposed badly, unlike his body, leading to expose a serious theft and the special status of patient Siberia, a Russian mob baron with an unconditionally devoted bodyguard.

Something's wrong!
12 March 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Patrick's crazies are kinda subdued in this episode. The Russian drug lord angle was kinda unnecessary. Robin Tunney just does not suit cop/boss role! Is it just me or is there anyone who thinks somebody else has to replace her? Her relief on not being held responsible for Patrick's actions was unconvincing and also unlike Teresa.

I know its not an ensemble cast, but Owain and Amanda disappear every now and then. Its like they have been signed up for guest appearances of late

Hope the writers are not cooking up anything between Le Roche and Teresa!

Looking forward to a better episode next week
