Single most tear-jerker episode and maybe the most emotional episode of all times
7 January 2013 | by tv_is_my_parentSee all my reviews

Cried, cried, cried, cried my f-ing eye balls out! I'm still crying writing this. Previous episode was just a trailer of what is coming next. I don't think I cried to anything this much (and I watched the entire series of Six Feet Under-if you know what I mean). The dream sequence at the ends, all the dialogs, everything was just amazing. Just a big WOW!

With the amazing writing by John Wells this has been an historic episode of ER. If I write more, I will cry more. I was like "enough!!!". If a show makes you this much sentimental, it worths something. One thing I didn't like! Where the f-ck was Julianna Margulies and George Clooney?! This is their (at least Doug's) best friend for Christ's sake! It just gets me furious! Okay, I'm crying again, now thinking of the funeral. Goodbye, Mark Greene, you will be missed! :( My point is I wish I could give it more than 10/10.
