Use of the drug in that setting is hardly rampant ? just 3 percent of children?s ER visits resulted in codeine prescriptions in 2010, the 10-year study found. But with more than 25 million ER visits by children each year, the authors say far too many are getting the drug when better options are available.

This episode focused on a series of important one-on-one encounters and reminded us of the pendulum that exists when determining whether a character is a hero or villain.
