One of the best episodes yet in this very under-rated series.

This episode started to show even more intricate involvement, but at the same time, it was quite interesting to view.

The president's sister-in-law can't be trusted. There appears to be a startling revelation about her. Dylan McDermott's wife, dying of leukemia,is really a force to be reckoned with as well. During the scenes from the next episode, there is a real shocking revelation about her.

The episode proves that sometimes you just can't get involved and you have to stay away. I'm referring to the boyfriend of our surgeon's daughter.

We see opposition by Ellen's husband, but as is with surgery, she is tying the loose ends up.
