*ER: Season 15 (The Final Season)*ER ended its amazing 15-year run with an incredible season filled with the usual life-saving stories along with tales of heartbreaking loss, all of which held together the joyful and heartbreaking stories of the ER staff.

Joining the cast this season is Angela Bassett, who plays new ER Chief Cate Banfield. She joins the regular final season cast: Scott Grimes (Dr. Archie Morris, Parminder Nagara (Dr. Neela Rasgotra), John Stamos (Dr. Tony Gates), Linda Cardellini (Nurse Samantha Taggert), David Lyons (Dr. Simon Brenner), Maura Tierney (Dr. Abby Lockhart), and Mekhi Phifer (Dr. Greg Pratt). Many members of the legacy ER cast make welcome returns as well.

Dr. Greene (Anthony Edwards) comes back in a heart-wrenching flashback episode that lends considerable understanding to the harsh bitterness of Dr. Banfield, cracking away some of her ice.

Dr. Ross (George Clooney), Nurse Hathaway (Julianna Margulies), and Dr. Peter Benton (Eriq La Salle) make an appearance in an organ transplant episode, which doesn't bring them to County General but allows them to make a believable appearance on the show.

Dr. John Carter (Noah Wylie) shows up to make some rounds and provide an extra tidbit of drama I'll not reveal.

It's sad to say goodbye to the show, but these appearances help to ease the blow a bit. ER started as the intense medical drama that changed the format of medical shows, making it less about the individual cases and more about the people who fix them. It ends in much the same way, giving us reason to laugh and cry, hope and dream. The final season of ER reflects the power of the full series. I can't wait to start watching it all over again.
