I can not believe after all this waite for the final season ,it will start by killing DR pratt!!!!!!he is a main karactor,what the hell where they thinking????its depresing rite off from the start.Who said that a show has to be soooo depressing inorder to be a succesfull???any way i am glad its coming to an end and this is the final ,since the cast had enough of it and they need to move on ,and i think the writer runing out of ideas so he is killing the karactors one by one.i was dissapointer with last night episod and i am hopping it will get better,even though i will miss Dr pratt.

pratt is the most interesting, complex character on the show. he added dimension and depth to the show. how could they ruin the final session, in an effort to create drama, with such a terrible event. i lost all interest in watching the final session

I am so disappointed .... he was the best character on the show. The last season looks grim without him. I don't know if I will even watch... and i've never missed an episode.

Dr. Pratt was the best character on E.R. Why kill him off in the last season? I don't want to watch anymore.

I heard it's Mekhi Pfieffer's decision because he wanted to focus more on his film career--his girlfriend's pregnant too and he wanted to be with her through all that, etc...

Siba, learn how to spell!!!
I can't believe he's gone either. I cried through the whole thing.... I'm so sad about this being the last season. I saw in a preview that Dr. Greene would be back somehow? Didn't know they were so good they could Resurrect people!

I too was suprised to see them write out Pratt. I heart Dr. Green was coming back but not alive... just as someone's memory or dream or something like that. I also heard that some other older characters that used to be on ER will come back on that same episode. After watching ER for 14 years and getting to know all the characters from start to finish, I am looking forward to that episode where they bring back some of the ones who used to be on. I think it's in November.

What a devastating episode! I knew it was coming... his life was going too well and in er that just spells disaster is on the horizon! WHAT is it with the writers of this show? Do their lives suck that bad so they have to make almost every character have a terrible end?
And I agree, Dr. Pratt was the most complicated character after Dr. Romano who they really could have done a lot with after his arm was sliced off, but no they kill him by sending a helicopter to finish him off!
At least we had a chance to say good bye... his gurney being slowly pushed from the trauma room to the elevator was er at its best and while I'm sad to see him go, I was totally moved by his send off. Acting was well done-- did you see that tear on his face and while I'd have much rather seen him live, they stayed true to the character. Left me wanting me more of him... that in and of itself says a lot about Mekhi Phifer too! I'll certainly miss him!

The writers suck!!! Why they had to do that, I don't know. It does seem like they take it out on the characters, doesn't it? One of the best
