Slightly better than the previous dumpsterfire
9 July 2019 | by irishboy141See all my reviews

This episode it still filled with melodrama, clichès, the awful child actress and bad special effects. But it was mostly at the hospital which made it more bearable, plus the aftermath was more interesting.

There is some unintensional humor, like in the previous episode. But it's turned up to 11 here because Meredith drowns for a solid 40 minutes, and is fine when she's rescued at the end. Nothing but BS, low stakes, and plot armor.
