TEARS!!!  You don't think you will have tears again when you see something from a different angle, but I had tears.  Seeing the big day all from one prospective...wowser.  TEARS.

Miguel didn't win any awards with me again.  There is the reminder, he did have a wife and kids.  And I know husband's get away from their wives...especially in the early 80's.  But to be honest, they came across a little bit like Pigs.  So no awards going to Miguel.

Doctor K and his homelife the day of and after.

The Fireman and what was going on in his life.

I cried - a lot. 

I missed the kids in this episode, but then I enjoyed that they stayed in the flashbacks the whole time.

I was okay not seeing them.  It was nice just to see everyone from the beginning.  Where their headspace was that day.  I feel like seeing them would have meant flashing to the present and we wouldn't have been able to sit in this moment and really feel it.  Feel the beginning.

I loved the "all in the past" that this episode was.
The mood swings!! LOL totally could relate. It was cool seeing how Randall was found and the fireman's story and how there was such a "meant to be" for all concerned.
I could totally relate to Dr. K's story...btdt myself. He is the one who had me in tears especially at the end when he was boxing up stuff and talking to his late wife at the table. So been there....*sniff*.

ETA-I am not liking Miguel.

Miguel didn't win any awards with me again.  There is the reminder, he did have a wife and kids.  And I know husband's get away from their wives...especially in the early 80's.  But to be honest, they came across a little bit like Pigs.  So no awards going to Miguel. Didn't like Miguel. I wonder if the wife going on the trip is a sign of things to come.  

Doctor K and his homelife the day of and after.  It was so sad.  I honestly thought he was thinking of ending his life until he got the call for Rebecca. 

The Fireman and what was going on in his life. It's interesting that the fireman hoped Randall would help his marriage. Jack thought the same thing that Randall would help them through the death of the baby.

Dr. K's story had me in tears as well.  The Big Three gave his life meaning as well.  Reminded him that there was more out there.

Oh gosh....I really don't like Miguel!!!

Jack thought the same thing that Randall would help them through the death of the baby.  ---I am curious if we will see the fireman in the future.  Like someday they will run into each other?

Lots of tears and laughter. Rebecca had me laughing during her pregnant state. I really felt for Jack but he did great hanging in there! I love the scene of him at the golf course with the other fellas and the only place he wanted to be was home.

It wasn't my favorite episode.  Usually the flashback have something to do with what is happening in the present.

I honestly felt it was wasted time focusing on the fireman....unless of course we see him again in the future. But I did like how he improved his relationship with his wife.

I did cry at the end of the episode.  It was very moving.

I honestly felt it was wasted time focusing on the fireman....unless of course we see him again in the future. But I did like how he improved his relationship with his wife.  His story is a good one but it all seems out of place at this point in the show.

I did cry at the end of the episode.  It was very moving.  The Dr's story is what I enjoyed most about this episode.  The last thing he wanted was to be involved in this delivery and yet it was just what he needed to put things in perspective and move forward.
