In Trauma Green, Jared is still dying. Abby and Carter are there. Michael and Jana tearfully decide not to have them shock Jared's heart. Abby robotically disconnects the ventilator so that Jared can die. "I love you, baby," Jana says. "I love you, sweetie, so much." The one thing that would make this scene more touching would be a cell-phone ringtone, so thank God Abby disobeys ER rules and uses hers in the trauma room. She answers her phone and walks into the next room. No one chides her for breaking a long-held rule that's been enforced on everyone else, but never on her. That's the bonus of being The Star of the World.
Abby is on the phone with the FAA. Carter watches her as Jared flatlines, then enters the room as she hangs up the phone. "It's intact," she chokes. "Tied down in a field outside of Sault Saint Marie." She pauses. "He's alive," she says, her eyes wet and her face smiling for the first time in a long time. "And he cared enough to tie down the plane!" she gushes. So he's not manic, or whatever. Maybe. Okay. Carter smiles and Abby kisses him on the lips. "I guess Maggie was right," he says. Abby breaks away. "God," she breathes. "I'll be right back."
Abby yells for Maggie and runs to the El station, sneaking under the turnstile. "Mom!" she shouts. Maggie turns. We fade to black thinking yet again that this show has chosen really, really strange act-outs throughout the entire season.
PSA Boy is still out in the snow. Weaver bursts out and rattles off all the reasons that Luka's behavior is too risky. But his fever goes down. "I saved his brain, heart, kidneys, liver," Luka says, looking satisfied with himself. "Yeah, well I guess it's a good thing you decided to finally come in," Kerry snorts, splitting her infinitive with gusto while Luka looks all puffed up and proud about his escapade.
