Things to take away from this episode, April seems to be afraid of the situation that she's in with her boyfriend, who asked her hand in marriage two months ago, that's what Reese said. Reese tries to help her boyfriend deal with a co worker who wants to be best friends. Ouch! I understand that mu friend. And Jeff and Manning, I'm just gonna say it, they're a thing now.
I liked this episode, it's not one of my favorites. The storyline with the babies were good and at times very concerning of what Manning would do if she really did go with Rhodes' idea. That would be something. Ethan's was interesting as we saw he teaching a student in situations and what to have when treating patients overseas. Mostly it was at the end where he wrote the patient that he lost was a wow moment.
