My poor, poor heart. Drew and Rick took my heart on a crazy ride during this episode, and I loved every minute of it. Seeing Drew and Rick interact is fantastic. One thing that isn't too clear is Rick’s views on coming out. He definitely pushes Drew to do it when Landry is there, and it doesn't seem like coming out would be a huge deal to Rick. We know Drew’s feelings on the matter, and we even get a bit more when Krista prods him about the issue in this episode. Krista gave Drew the much needed push to go kiss Rick. If Drew hadn't, we would be having words about that.

The army is a big presence in this episode. It is great to see the comradery in the hospital, even though the guy with the eye patch was a jerk. Also, I did not need all those close ups when his eye freaked out. I couldn't look. Another heartbreaking storyline is Krista and PFC Wilson. I knew this would end badly. Krista and Wilson were just too adorable. It was practically impossible not to fall in love with them. Did you enjoy having the army in this episode?

Alright, we all knew it was coming. Scott versus TC. It’s predictable, nothing too exciting. The highlight of all of this is Topher’s conversation with TC about Jordan. It is fantastic to get Topher’s perspective on this whole situation, and to have this friendship moment in the episode. We know Topher and TC served together, but their friendship doesn't often get to shine. Even though it seems unlikely, I would enjoy seeing Jordan talk about all of this with Landry. It’s a complicated situation that Jordan is in.
