Those hospital scenes were very real. I totally agree that they were accurate in how they portrayed the doctor's behavior and the entire environment. That whole episode was very weird for me to watch. The hospital scenes were just like what had happened to our family a couple years ago when my grandma was in the hospital. She didnt get shot like Tony, but she had a perforated ulcer and had to get surgery on it, also was septic or whatever they call it (b/c the digestive stuff was in the rest of her system instead of being contained), but then afterward did not wake up and was on a ventilator. I visited her every day for like 3 weeks, until we decided to take her off the vent. It was a little traumatic actually, watching that part of the episode yesterday.
I felt they just did an amazing job with those scenes though. The interactions between family and doctors, multiple doctors, just hanging on every thread of information. Very real!
As far as the rest of the episode goes, I was honestly a little mad. If the rest of the season is without Tony or Tony in coma world, I will be irritated. I was hoping for a more graceful transition into series end. I am curious to see what happens though.
I second that Edie Falco was amazing. She is just a stellar actor.
Did anyone else think that Jamie-Lynn is looking a little too thin again?
Favorite parts about the episode
"Ok Van Helsing, let's go."---Paulie to AJ
The cheap suits and lack of accent for Tony in his coma world. Bizarro Tony.
