Because she’s a beloved character that’s been with the show for 10 years.
Because this is a unique episode, a two-hander between Ryan and Eve. It doesn’t even have the normal opening credits. That’s how special it is.
The acting is incredible. While Ryan really nails the absolute terror and sadness Toadie feels about his wife’s imminent death, Eve delivers a moving performance of a young woman whose life is slipping away and who must prepare her husband to go on without her, while coming to terms with what may or may not await her after death.
It’s a beautiful conclusion to one of the best storylines in ages. As far as last moments go, this has to be in the top five death goals.
This episode is the kind of thing that will remind you that life is short and you should ring your Nanna.
