Malarkey, Chuny, and Shane are still treating Teargas Tito. Malarkey says, "Add a little police presence, throw a bottle or two, suddenly there's a whole lot of looting going on!" Tito asks what the odds are that he got hid. Shane continues the exam as Malarkey asks if Tito at least got a TV out of the deal. Tito gets angry and says that he was just walking by. Chuny and Shane give Malarkey dirty looks. Malarkey says, "Yep, running errands for Granny during a riot." Tito asks if Malarkey doesn't believe him, and Malarkey says that they've heard it all before, and looks to Chuny for backup. Chuny looks at him like, "Dude, you are on your own here." Malarkey issues the treatment orders, and Shane explains them to Tito kindly. Shane and Malarkey walk into the hall, and Malarkey tells Shane that the guy's full of crap, but Shane shouldn't worry, because it took Malarkey two years to learn how to spot the con artists. He walks off, and Shane looks at him like, "Dude, who thought there was someone on the show that could make me look good?"
As Luka examines Ellie's eyes, she sings in her head, "I think I love you, so what am I so afraid of, I'm afraid that I'm not sure of..." Heh. Everyone loves the Croatian Sensation. ["Even lesbians!" -- Wing Chun] Luka says that Ellie's heart rate is still up, and that Sam should give her more fentanyl. Ellie wholeheartedly agrees. Ellie notes that Luka isn't wearing a wedding ring, and says she likes his sexy accent. Then she decides that she's pathetic, because her heart is racing since Luka touched her. She quickly realizes that Luka's touch isn't the only thing making her heart race, as her pulse goes out of control. Sam reports that her pulse is 240, and Luka gives some med orders. Ellie says she's getting dizzy and can't breathe. Abby asks if this is related to the stroke. Luka says that if her heart doesn't beat properly, blood can pool. Abby adds that she threw a clot and it went to her brain. In other words, the heart problems caused her stroke in the first place. Ellie continues to suffer as Sam pushes the drugs. Luka tells her that she might feel a few seconds of discomfort. Abby bags her as Ellie's one good eye opens wide and she looks terrified. The room fades to white.
There was a time when this show might have killed Ellie off before the end of the episode, but that time has passed.
Ellie is flatlining as her husband, Dan, walks in. From the vignette at the beginning of the episode, I thought they were divorced, but I guess not. Ellie gets a normal rhythm going as Luka explains to Dan what they are doing. Luka checks the paper strip from the monitor and realizes that Ellie has an atrial flutter. He explains to Ellie that they can now give her the proper medication, and that it won't cause problems like what just happened. Ellie's eyes are just kind of randomly rolling about, and Dan asks if she's awake. Abby says that she has shown "spontaneous eye movement." Dan moves to Ellie's side and asks if she can hear him. Her one good eye focuses on him and she thinks, "You're here!"
