Review


With Charlie finally awake, the crew has a new purpose. They seek out a gift for their friend. Meanwhile, the crazy, eccentric Naday arrives at the hospital and pretty much just gives Charlie a concert each day. Of course, there is a method to his madness. It was touching to see how he attempted to bring Charlie’s parents back together.

On the other hand, Emma is beginning to lose control. Is she freaking out over her anorexia? Or is it just boy problems? Either way, it was a little difficult not to feel sorry for her, despite her acting out like a spoiled brat. This was a fun episode and it was cool to see the crew attempt to go above and behind to get Charlie a good gift. This episode deserves an 8.5 out of 10.
