It's just that I am aware that it's the last time I am gonna post about a new ER epi....
JOHN WELLS WROTE A PERFECT ENDING................... Totally in the spirit of OLD ER...
The restrospective was so well done.............and I am amazed to see how well I remembered EVERYTHING...
And, like Christabelle, I loved that the last day was so normal, with big traumas coming, docs and nurses running everywhere, nothing grandiloquent and over the top.
The best parts:
- Of course, when LYDIA ( who had been MIA for ages) walks into the on call room and wakes MORRIS up.... Had been expecting this to happen as a tribute to MARK but had a large grin on my face.
- Loved to see all the nurses.
Thank you to MALIK, LILY, CHUNY and especially HALEH...........
- Loved CHAZ as a first year student ( ? ) showing the ER to the bunch of newbies...
- What moved me most was FRANK's face when RACHEL introduced herself to him...TROY EVANS's face was incredible...........like when he said goodbye to PRATT.
- I also loved that all the stories with the current cast weren't all wrapped up....even though SAM and GATES will probably make out like crazy in the Mustang.
About the old cast:
I LOVED EVERYTHING.
The small details which made me melt:
-Seeing REESE with his Dad, and the fact that MATTHEW WATKINS was still playing the role.
- SUSAN was so beautiful.
If ER was a fairy tale, she and CARTER would hook up....( he is no more snotty and smug and loaded.............and doesn't look like her baby brother anymore as in season 1 when he had a huge crush on her. )
And I really hated KEM today. Why the hell did she come ? Apart from the fact that she is still grieving JOSHUA so much, she obviously has nothing anymore in common with CARTER. She was cold and distant and the poor guy broke my heart with his sad eyes.
If ER was a fairy tale, ELIZABETH and BENTON would be together now.............and CLEO who had only one facial expression during 3 seasons, would be completely forgotten........as she was for the majority of us.
If ER was MY FAIRY TALE, LUKA and ABBY would have been drinking with their friends at the bar , remembering the good ol' days.......... but they are happy in Boston with JOEJOE and it's all the best.
I only started crying when CARTER said to RACHEL: Are you coming Dr Greene ? "........ I am a sentimental sap and was seeing MARK watching " OVER THE RAINBOW. "
And I really bawled like a baby with the return of the theme song , the zoom to show the whole COUNTY HOSPITAL and the EL passing by.
END OF AN ERA..............GOOD BYE OLD FRIEND..........
Zelda, you saw the final episode exactly the way i did!! It just was the PERFECT ending. I will never forget the look on Frank's face when Rachel said who she was. It was so heartbreaking.
And the scene towards the end, when Brennar walks in and the new girl doctor says, 'i don't think i can do this', i was half expecting the, Green/Carter and Carter/Gallant speech about, 'there are two kinds of doctors', but it never happened.
But I do think that this episode should have been entitled 'everything old is new again', the same as back from the season 1's finale. That what it felt like to me, especially with new interns, med students and feel to the show.
But the rating, how about that?? We haven't seen them like that for many years. ER you did good If only these were the rating all the time and we wouldn't have had to say goodbye.....
