Teachers' lounge. Lauren is sharing the situation with Marla and Marilyn, and mentions the website to them. Why she wants to "check it out" is unclear, since the parents brought it up as a positive, helpful influence, but Lauren is suspicious nevertheless. Marilyn mentions that lots of girls at Winslow are too skinny, and Marla says the website is probably really easy to check out. Lauren looks thoughtful.
The hospital. Harry come in, passes through the waiting room, and goes into Max's bedroom. Max is, of course, not there. I mean, they don't do bone marrow transplants right there in the bedroom. He's probably upstairs, right now, getting well! Yeah, that's it! And this unfinished copy of Moby Dick lying here on the bed has no significance whatsoever. Yep. Everything's gonna be A-okay. Hey, why does that nurse look so sad? Harry asks her where Max is, and where he should wait, and blah blah, and then the nurse asks if he's a family member, and says she has bad news. "Max died about half an hour ago. His body just gave out." Harry gets a little choked up, and excuses himself.
The Dungeon. Harry announces to his class that Max died. "I'm sure his parents would want to thank all of you who volunteered to be tested as donors. They'd also want to know how much your prayers and visits meant to them. I'm sorry." Then he walks out. Hey, by the way, what was Max doing in the dungeon? He seemed like a pretty smart kid. Anyway, Harry leaves his class alone, silent, and sad.
Sanctum Stevenorium. He receives a visit from Meredith, who gives him a little speech about how she used to be viewed as "odd," especially because of the hook, but now: "I feel I've been more accepted. Even by you. And now that our children are dating, I would just ask that you be as open-minded with him as you have been with me." Steven says okay. Then she adds, "Well, I was hoping that we could all have dinner. Just the four of us. Get to know each other as a family unit." Um. One kiss. This morning. Steven wisely points out that he doesn't think the kids would like that, but Meredith says they should still try. She also says, "Normally, the idea of my son being involved in an interracial relationship would cause my veins to shrivel. I don't believe in them. But because it's Brooke, and your daughter, I'm open to it! I think you're both wonderful people!" Steven, kind of shell-shocked, says "thank you" again.
