In a waiting room somewhere in New York, Letitia tries to make Karen feel better by telling her she'll have Maria make her a nice dinner when she's feeling up to it. Karen says she's only going to want a martini, and a time machine to go back and never meet Simon. Letitia tells her she's doing the right thing, and then a nurse calls Karen in to see the doctor. Karen, in a short, tight, smoking-hot dress, gets up and goes to see the doctor.
Simon, Tripp, and Nick are having an extremely boring meeting about some sort of press conference at the port authority the next day at which Nick's expecting a large turnout of important people. Nick says the only thing holding up the rollout is Simon's signature on the final transfer of the biofuel patent to Darling Enterprises. Tripp looks worried. Simon's all, "Yeah, right, that was an oversight." He'd be glad to sign it over, duh. Nick says he'll have the papers together later today. Simon says he's glad he's Tripp's partner and leaves. Tripp tells Nick that Simon seems awfully accommodating for someone about to part company with so much money. He wants Nick to find out why that is. Nick: "Done."
Congressman Watley (who was Senator Watley just last week; not sure what happened) shows up unexpectedly at Patrick's office. He says he has the wife and kids in town for a few days to shop and kick-start the economy. Watley apologizes for the misunderstanding, and hopes Patrick will take the advance as a compliment. Watley would like to have dinner, though, but only to discuss Darling's new biofuel thing. He holds Patrick's hand a little too tightly, and Patrick acts freaked out by it. But he says he'll have his people get in touch with Watley's people.
Letitia and Karen are leaving a building labeled "Medical Building" in the pouring rain, and Karen says she couldn't go through with it and hopes Letitia won't make a drama out of it. Letitia, hilariously, says "Well, certainly not, dear. When have you ever known me to make a drama?" Karen ignores that comment. Karen hates that Simon will always be part of her life now, but Letitia tells her it will be fine. The camera pulls back to show us Simon watching them from inside a car across the street as Letitia comments on the rain and Karen says, "Not a good day for an abortion." You know, in case you didn't pick up on all of the extremely subtle clues that she was getting an abortion, they thought they'd bang you over the head with it. Also, how did Simon find them? Considering he went into the meeting with Tripp after seeing them, he obviously couldn't have followed. Whatever. I guess I don't need it to make sense. And... opening credits. Finally.
