If you want a friend in New York reviews
[S8.] Part of him wants to turn to his side, as if Kate's still there, show her how cute it is, wheedle a little about the loft feeling quiet without Martha. And then he remembers how much quieter the loft's gotten, and that he's walking down the street with the taste of coffee in his mouth, but his stride's grown longer and slower again without her to keep his pace.

When there's nothing left but me reviews
[4x01 'Rise' Twoshot] Everybody leaves, dies, gives up. Everything ends. There's a dryness in her mouth and a fuzzy static filling her ears that muffles everything except the dull push and pull of blood in her ears, blood pumping too fast in and out of every vein from the heart that shouldn't still be beating. He's still here.
