Jennifer and Paige sit in the hospital and look sad that they killed that nice PCP addict. Apparently, she didn't pass the placenta, and bled out. "EMTs checked her at the scene," Jennifer says. Okay. Then why didn't they close up that enormo gash she had on her forehead in the scene in the car? Continuity people, please report to my office. Jennifer looks like she's going to cry, as the doctor tells them that they did the best they could. Paige takes off to do their paperwork, and Jennifer looks sniffly. Instead of going home to her own babies, though, she goes into the nursery and holds Vera's. Who probably could use a little TLC, I'll admit. Poor little baby. Jennifer begins to sing, and we close out the show with YET ANOTHER musical montage, this time to the tune of Jennifer's rendition of "Mockingbird." Which is nice and touching and all, but I'm beginning to suspect that the writers here are at a bit of a loss as to how to write an ending. And endings are totally hard. But four musical montage endings in four episodes is really not acceptable.
But okay. Let's do this montage: first off, Estelle and her ugly shirt and her fatherless babies drive away from their house. Those are some cheery kids, considering that their dad just got shot.
Eddie emerges into traffic with a bag over his head.
Malloy coaches Jesse on his swing.
Lisa looks at a tape of Roy's surveillance, and seems sad.
Roy drinks a cup of coffee on his stoop and feels bad about being so mean to Lisa.
And Jennifer coos at the baby. And we're out! Dear writers: for Christmas, please learn to write an ending without a montage. Thanks! And Happy New Year to the rest of you all.
