Gotta hand it to Morgan, filing that complaint as a preemptive strike against her own firing was genius. I honestly don't think she was out to get Claire of Melendez, I think she made the complaint specifically knowing there wasn't anything really all that worrisome going on. She just wanted to be on record as a whistle-blower to make her losing her job look shady. Too bad for her that Lim is on to her. Morgan trying to rattle Shaun during surgery smacked of desperation, she's getting into scared animal mode. (Speaking of which, I would have liked to know how that poor lady ended up getting mauled like that, and why wasn't there any discussion of possible rabies? I'm not a dog-lover -- in fact I cross to the other side of the street if I see someone walking off leash -- and even I know that it's unlikely that a random dog on the street would go after me for no reason.)
I really like the idea of Claire and Melendez being buddies. We don't see enough of that. Also, was Melendez about to drive away after having a presumably alcoholic drink? Tsk tsk.
My favorite part of the episode was Shaun being able to get across how incredibly isolating it is to not be able to communicate with others. I spent two weeks in a country where I didn't speak a word of the language and it was like I became a different person. I'm very very talkative in my native tongue, and when I couldn't communicate I started feeling like a supremely awkward ghost. And even somehow animalistic. I noticed I used my elbows a lot more in a crowd, for example. When you don't talk it can be like you don't exist. With his problems communicating, he was in a pretty damn good position to advocate surgery for his young patient.
By God I HATE the trope of "everyone else can see it" love stories. As far as I'm concerned, you don't get to tell other people how they feel until you've lived inside their minds and bodies. Carly was out of line pronouncing love from an evening of brief observation. If she wanted to break up because she just couldn't get past the feeling that Shaun loved Lea, that was one thing. To essentially place the breakup on him by telling him that was how he felt, that is shitty and presumptive.
