Canadian preview : LUSENET : ER Discussions : One Thread


The canadian preview was different from NBC preview. I don't remember exactly everything so it will sound a little bit confusing.

1) As in NBC preview, we saw Carter 'falling' in the exam room. But later, we saw Carter in front of Abby, Mark and Elisabeth as he was judged by them. At one moment, he says something like 'Do you think I am a drug addict?'

2) Benton and Luka: we saw them on the top of a roof with FBI agents. And later, Luka is in an helicoptere, Benton is outside. They are arguing about which patient should be transported to the ER. Benton thinks that his patient is in a more serious condition, but Luka says that he is killer. Luka, finally, ask a guy to close the door of the helicoptere.

Hope it helps


PS: English is not my first language so sorry for the mistakes.

Thanks Delphine for the Canadian preview. It is much different than here. Looks like maybe Carter is going to be either accused of taking drugs or he IS taking drugs. Even though we haven't had signs of it (concrete signs of it) in previous episodes, I think TPTB just might make us aware of it in the season finale. Which would make sense if he wasn't Bipolar then his "high" mood swings could be from the drugs and the lows are when the drugs wear off. Interesting to anyone??

The preview in the states had everything you said. Except about the little meeting with Carter,Abby,Mark, and Elizabeth. Instead, they had a scene wiht Carter punching Benton.

Thanks for that preview! I really hope that they continue with the possibility of a drug addiction, and are using the bi-polar things as a distraction. Next finale is going to be awesome!!

We do know Carter suffers from PTSD, chronic pain , and survivor's guilt. He has displayed many symptoms of PTSD such as insomnia, flasbacks , irritibility , not getting the traumatic events out his mind. Carter was probably given pain medication for his injuries etc. Lets keep in mind whether Carter is taking drugs , he may not be addicted to them. Even if itis drug abuse , it is not Carter's problem . It is just a symptom of everything. He took the drugs to control symptoms from his injuries such as chronic pain plus to help alleviate problems associated with his PTSD. Carter does not need to have Bipolar. He has all these other things going on right now. I think it would be very simplistic to just catergorize Carter as a drug addict. He did not choose to take these drugs for fun. He took them to try to get over things he could not control. Poor guy. I really hope we see Carter getting help in the premeire next season

Good point, Brenda.

Wow thanks for letting us know. But I was wondering, in the scene with Carter, Mark, Elizabeth, and Abby, does it look like they are yelling at him, or just trying to confront him? I really hope that no one yells at him, but just tells him they're concerned and they want to help him., Abby's there? Hmmmm. I wonder if she'll say anything. She seems to admire Carter. And it will be interesting to see Mark and Elizabeth confront him together...Elizabeth has yelled a lot lately, but never at Carter, so I hope she doesn't now. Maybe she will mention Lucy sometime. I can't wait!

I saw the preview again yesterday. I made a mistake. It is not Elizabeth but Kerry who is with Abby and Mark.

Sorry about that.

-- Delphine Kerzerho (, May 17, 2000.

Man! I wanted it to be Elizabeth. Sorry, but right now I couldn't care less about Kerry, and I would rather see Benton, Mark, Elizabeth, or Deb interact with him. I like Kerry, but right now she is getting on my nerves! Maybe because I thought that from spoilers I thought she would be helping him out, and she never did.

-- Elaine (, May 17, 2000.

Oh, and I hope KErry isn't confronting Carter when she's on her "see how b*itchy I can be!" rampage. POOR Carter!
