At Carter's place, the phone rings. He answers it and switches on the light. It's clearly Kem on the other end. Wendall stares at Carter, in disbelief that he's actually taking this call while she's lying next to him. She gets up and pulls on her clothes. Carter asks where she's going, and Wendall sighs, "I'll see you at work." Carter asks Kem if he can call her right back.
Carter follows Wendall outside and apologizes for being stupid and rude. Wendall asks if she's just a diversion for him until Kem returns to the U.S. Carter says that he and Kem had a baby together, and that he can't just cut Kem out of his life. Wendall asks, "Are you with me?" Carter doesn't answer, and instead asks if they can please go inside. Wendall starts to walk off, and Carter says sarcastically, "Oh, so that's it? One phone call, and you're gone, huh?" Wendall says that he could have told Kem Wendall was there. Carter says that he and Wendall spend every night together, enjoy each other's company, and have fun. Wendall looks like she was slapped in the face. Carter says he knows what he wants her to say, and he can't say it. Maybe he should have told her that earlier, instead of letting his silence give her hope. God, I hate Carter. Wendall still doesn't speak, so Carter apologizes. Wendall says, "Well, at least you're honest." She turns to leave, and Carter says that it doesn't mean that they can't.... Wendall interrupts him and says that it does. She walks away. Is it weird that I never really liked Wendall until that scene? The enemy of my enemy is my friend.
Ellie's procedure has arrived at the critical moment. The doctors are trying to remove the blood clot. It works, and everything looks good. Luka happily tells Ellie to wake up. The nurse suggests removing the ventilator, and Luka suggests doing it in the ER, just to be safe. And also, for maximum dramatic impact. You wouldn't want her first post-stroke words to be in the elevator or something.
Shane and Neela find the address Tucker gave, and park outside. They walk into the building. Neela knocks on the door and identifies herself. Tucker lets them in, and then turns and matter-of-factly tells his siblings to wake up. Should Clayton be sleeping with a concussion? I guess that's the least of their worries right now. Tucker reminds his siblings that he told them they would be split up if "they found out." Neela asks Tucker where his parents are. Tucker says it's just my mom, and she's in the bedroom. He gestures toward a door that has a towel stuffed in the crack underneath. I totally thought she was smoking pot in there. I'm that dumb. Shane and Neela look confused and head for the bedroom. After knocking on the door and calling out, they open it. The kids get their coats on. Neela and Shane walk into the bedroom and immediately notice the smell. Neela hides her face as Shane walks over to the bed and pulls back the covers. He manages to look both disgusted, shocked, and confused. Tucker tells them that his mother got sick a week ago. Neela runs out of the room, about to be sick.
