An injection of epinephrine only lasts for about 15-20 minutes. After that the epinephrine would wear off and if the allergen was still in your system you would start to go back into anaphylaxis. As the doctor is allergic to tomatoes, he would continue to go into anaphylaxis as long as he had tomatoes in his stomach. A single injection of epinephrine wouldn't have solved that. As he never went to an ER and had his stomach pumped and only had the one EpiPen, he should have died. See more »

Patricia Knoller: Excuse me. Mrs. Johnson? Nancy Johnson? Hi
Nancy Johnson: Excuse me. I don't.
Patricia Knoller: I- I- I'm Pat. Pat Knoller. I write for the Chicago Tribune.
Nancy Johnson: I'm sorry, I I don't have anything to say to you.
Patricia Knoller: No. You don't have to say anything, but please listen. I specialize in long-form investigative reporting.
Nancy Johnson: Yeah, I've read the headlines.
Patricia Knoller: No.
Nancy Johnson: "Michigan Miracle."
Patricia Knoller: No, that's not what I do. I help people like Prairie tell their stories honestly and respectfully.

User Reviews

As good as can be.
7 May 2019 | by iZergSee all my reviews

I'm reviewing this episode mostly because there is no other review and I feel there should be a continuance.

That's mostly what is happening in this episode, continuance. We learn more of the OA's backstory and watch the characters grow, all with a great progression pace. I feel that's a very strong point so far. The story is neither rushing nor dragging and we get the right doses of emotion, action and suspense.

What's been said about the series before still holds true. Great cinematography, music themes, casting and acting.
