In the lounge, Weaver and Chen are throwing down for the Battle Royale of the Badly Coiffed Bitches. Seriously, Chen's hair? Looks like an elephant spit gum into it and she had to cut it out. Or that she lost a fight with a Flowbie. Weaver coldly tells Chen that her rehiring will require the scaling back of other people's hours, "so don't be surprised if [her] return is not met with open arms." Chen smugly says she's certain all scheduling complaints will be directed to Kerry. My first instinct was to call Chen insensitive, but then again, it's pretty obvious that the ER is short-staffed and no one will actually get their shifts reduced, and Weaver is simply being contrary. Chen's first shift will be at 7 PM. "You're putting me on overnights?" she snorts. Weaver figures Chen's not in a position to complain about her schedule, but Chen disagrees -- her conditions were for both salary and shift equity, and she won't stand for getting saddled with the graveyard hours. Chen also restates that she'll be bumped up to Attending. "We both know what you did here," she spits. "Yes," Weaver finally admits. "And we know what you did, too. So while we're being truthful, let me say I'm not the one with blood on my hands. If you were a more thorough doctor, you wouldn't have needed me there in the first place." And with that, Weaver triumphantly leaves the room without having issued that formal personal apology. Chen is steaming.
Yosh and Malik gossip about The Kiss, but when they spot Weaver headed their way, they shut up. Susan hails her and mentions that Kinney will get executed after all -- he's in a post-op coma. She's trying to put his execution on Weaver's head? Go away, Susan. And shut up when you get there. Susan gripes that it costs four thousand dollars a day to care for him while he's comatose. Kerry blows her off, rightly pointing out that resource management isn't Susan's concern -- saving the patient, however, should be.
