Better than last week. But the writing in this felt quite clunky; how many times did Marcus have to deliver a "how's Chantal doing now" exposition dump? Three? Four?

Yeah, but when your loved one is in the hospital, that is pretty much most of what you talk about, isn't it?

I thought it was a decent episode overall. Ugh. Just when I had decided to stop watching because of weak plot lines. Also, the LOS (lack of Shinwell) is a good thing. Wonder if they've been getting negative feedback about how uninteresting that subplot is. I found threading the Marcus and Chantal relationship throughout several episodes was much more relatable and interesting, and hope it continues.
