Believe the Unseen Season 14, Episode 12

It felt like much too long that we were watching Abby's downward spiral. So tonight's "redemption" episode- doctor makes a difficult and rare diagnosis and saves child, thereby saving themselves- provided a fitting, if somewhat contrived, resolution. I am happy to see our Abby back at the hospital and returning to her old self. It was also good to see her making amends with Pratt and, especially, Neela. I am not quite sure what the heck was up with Sam's reaction to Abby's admission. I would have expected less judgment from someone like Sam who has certainly made her fair share of bad choices. But then ER wouldn't be ER without a little drama, right? There was no shortage of drama tonight with the various cases. Abby's story of the little girl with the rare eye disorder was a good one and I liked that the firefighters were able to vindicate her at the end. The woman who played her foster mother looked so familiar to me, but I couldn't place where I've seen her before. (By the way, for those of you who didn't recognize it, the song she was singing was "Beautiful" by Christina Aguilera.) Based on NBC's "spoilerific" previews, it sounds like we may have seen the last of Julia, and while I won't miss her terribly, I did think she was very effective tonight. I loved the conversation at the end when she was talking to Tony about faith. I found her words to be very true. However, looking at it from a doctor's perspective, I can see where it might be tough to separate faith from science when so much of your job relies on reason and logical conclusions based on fact. When patients die, it is a normal reaction to try and assign blame and find a cause, even if the only evidence points to something extraordinary. Neela was welcomed into the strange world of orthopedic surgery and was swiftly recruited for their hockey team based on her field hockey experiece. (Huh?) I'm not sure what is scarier to me- tiny Neela playing hockey or Neela catching an eyeful of naked Harold in the shower. (Actually, I think I'll go with option 2). The brief introduction of Neela's cousin didn't really do much to further the plot in my opinion, but maybe they will revisit that story later. I did enjoy a laugh when Neela conveyed her cousin's messages to Harold and Morris. Here's hoping the remaining episodes leave us with something to look forward to during this forced hiatus. I haven't heard much about how the strike will impact the future of the show, but I do hope that the fans are not the ultimate losers in this standoff. With the resumption of the season looking more and more unlikely with each passing week, let's keep our fingers crossed that we can get back on track soon. I will be on vacation next week, but I will try to set up a place for you to comment on the next episode before I leave. I'll catch up with you the following week for the final two episodes. Until then, stay warm! show less
