The producers and writers did an excellent job of keeping the mom's presence so strong yet not intrusive. That is one of the reasons this show has become such a favorite, the strong sense of family in the bar sense of the word. Well done.

I was a little disappointed when Don didn't have a moment with his mother. But I understood that he was in peace with her. He came back home, support his father and brother, stayed by her side loving her through the end. As usual, he saved their world the best way he could.
But your version of his dream is perfect. Thank you for that!

good to know he finally accepts his family's help

Two things were answered beautifully here in this story about what happened after. First, the team's reaction on finding Don, I so wanted to see that in the show. And, the very end with Don, Alan and Charlie. I loved how you explained the reasoning of their reactions at the end of the show. Thanks for writing. :)

This was so great. I spent a lot of time dreaming about how to fill in the blanks myself (yeah, I was supposed to be working, what's your point?) and really didn't come up with anything, so it was a real treat to find this. Thanks.

Oh, 3rdgal, I had to stop whatever I was doing to go and read your story when I got a notice that you had posted. I knew it would be good.
Very well done, I could see everything happening as you described it.
My one little nitpick is 'alright' is TWO words, all right. Not one. (It's 4 paragraphs from the end of the story)
Looking forward to more.

Great story written extremely well. The only other comment
I have is that I disagree that Don stayed awake after the
injection. I've looked slow-mo at the scene several times and
it looks to me as if Don goes completely unconscious. That's
what frustrated me so much at the way the TV ep ended that
particularly scene. It would certainly complicate Don'a
recovery and the fact nothing was said in the dining room irritated me no end!
But thanks to your story I have some explanation at least for
the intervening events. Good job.

I loved it. Didn't realize what happened to Down. Still not sure who he was after. I'm blind and that last sceen confused me. Enjoyed the story though.

Yes, that's just what we needed! Thank you for writing it! Good job. If only we could get more scenes of the boys together longer than the last 3 minutes...*sigh* But I'll take anything you care to write!

This particular episode begged (and I do mean begged) for another scene and you have furnished it perfectly. The cast are all in character and respond just as I have seen them on the screen. In addition, you gave us the hospital time, why Don was at the house, why he shouldn't have been drinking that beer, and best of all, why that beautiful smile spread across his face when his family "helped" him with his report. Great job.
