Recap

Frank Powell has to leave his family again for work, but promises his daughter that he will be back for her birthday.

Episode Notes
This is the first time Medical Investigation faced CBS's new drama, Numb3rs, and it also mark steady downfall of MI after weeks of strong ratings. This eventually led NBC to cancel the show.



Analysis
The relationship we've seen with Frank and their family is very similar to the relationship of Stephen and his family. The only difference is Stephen is divorced because of the work hours in the NIH and Frank's family is holding on to Frank's long hours in the NIH.
