Goofs

Luka would have needed continuous ventilation if he was given a paralytic. Just intubating and bagging him a few times would not give him sufficient air if his diaphragm muscles are paralyzed. See more »

ER is the best programme on TV and this episode was the best of the best. I can't wait for the next series to find out what happened - can't believe I have to wait until next year. Where's Sam? What about Abby and her baby? Poor Kovac is hand cuffed to a bed and can't get up to help Abby. Will Morris leave? Will Nilah and Ray ever to get together (there is definitely something going on between them). This episode had everything, love, tears, adventure, thrills and even an amazing gun fight at the end. The best cliff hanger in the history of ER without a doubt. Forgot about Jerry - will he survive his gun shot wound? Will they find Abby in time??
