    Holy crap on the ending. Didn't see that coming at all! Otherwise a pretty boring episode.

    I thought it was the best episode of the season. Also the part at the end with the carver creeped me the heck out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Also are they implying that her mom came back to life and she killed her? WOW

    I figured she was going to do the pillow thing because in the scene when she was talking I could the see the burn patient breathing and I was wondering if they made a mistake. Its apparent they were being realistic. I figured it wasnt her mom. I just thought they would find her somewhere else alive.
    So Julia will Julia have a guilt complex knowing she took out somebody else.

    I also figured the reason she took the pillow was she knew her vain mother would not want to live like that. However she doesnt know what the other person thought.

    Totally got me. I was shocked. I thought the Carver might be waiting for Julia, or Matt with the signature Carver smile cut into his smug face, or Sean on his knees!

    OMG. I cried so bad during this episode when Julia was talking to the Red Sox fan, and then also when Julia was talking to her "mother". I guess having a bad parental relationship with my own mother really socked it home for me.

    Best Episode of the Season thus far.

    Oh Quentin, what a tangled web we weave.

    Julia Pregnant?

    Who saw that coming?!?

    Read this on It has to do with the identity of the carver, but does not reveal who it is.

    And as if you needed another reminder, the Carver will be unmasked during the final moments of Nip/Tuck's third season finale on Dec. 20, which will be composed of two back-to-back episodes from 10 pm to midnight. And don't bother trying to guess who the Masked One is.'s Angel Cohn spoke to Bruno Campos on Monday and he flat-out said the Carver's identity is "not guessable. YouÂ’ll never guess, never in a million years."

    Does this mean it is not Quentin? If it is one of the main characters, how hard is it to guess? There are not that many of them.

    I still think the carver is the male police detective.

    I found this episode to be almost unwatchable. It was worse than E.R. when even E.R. was having one of their totally unbeleivable bus crash/bomb goes off episodes.
    I hope this was a one shot deal, and they never try a stunt like this again. Bleh.

    After the best episode of the season last week, they follow it up with a gimmicky filler show. It didnt progress any of the major plot lines (Carver, Kimber etc...)

    In general any show where they focus on Julia, I find to be slow and boring. But this one was the worst. The dialogue between the Red Sox daughter was so forced. Also, having Julia doing all the medical work bothered me for some reason. She took 1 year of med school how many years ago?

    Anyways, it looks like things willk get back on course next week judging by the previews.

    This show ended when Julia came back home and found her mother, right? There was a teaser for next week's previews after that so I deleted it.

    Man! I really thought (think?) it's Quentin. If you watched the little clip of the Carver talking into the camera after the show last night (I don't think it was the official previews for next week's show, but my TiVo cut off before any other previews were aired so maybe it was) and listened to the cadence and style of the voice (obviously the voice itself was not recognizable), to me it seemed completely obvious it was Quentin talking. Just the way he runs words together, or doesn't, and the pauses and stuff, seemed exactly like the way Quentin talks.

    BTW, I called Julia's mother being alive immediately after she heard about the plane crash. Even throughout all the drama of finding her "mom" and the pillow and all of that, I was pretty sure the Mom would turn out not to have been on the plane at all. At first I thought she was not contacting Julia as another stupid "lesson in life", but I guess she just couldn't get through for whatever reason. Makes me wonder yet again: what happened to the invisible daughter?!?!

    agreed... lame. Not once but twice they pulled the bait and switch with Erica.
    And you are right completely off-base... how many times is that anasteisioligist Liz going to be reunited with Mcnamara Troy?

    Okay so now it is official, everyone in the world except me has a myspace page... even the Carver.

    Both of those two point irriatated me too. That was a damned bad way to start this episode. The scene with the daughter was so uninteresting I lost interest in the whole episode.

    As to whether her mother was on the plane, wouldn't the airline have known whether the woman Julia said was her relative actually boarded the plane or not? I know, I know, it's a TV show, suspension of disbelief and all that, but it seems that would be a pretty easy way to make sure that people how are freaked out need to be freaked out or not. A quick check and a "your loved one was not on this flight."

    Definitely seemed like a filler episode. Didn't like the flashes of Christian seeing Kimber while working on the woman with the pole in her chest - seemed pretty silly and out of place.

    Anyone think there's a chance the last scene with Julia's mother was a dream?

    Thats what I thought at first, but the more I think about it, the more I don't think it is a dream.

    Just think of what Julia will do now that she has let go of her and kinda stood up to her like that. She won't be taking any more crap from her mom anymore.
