Abby gently dresses Marta's wounds. "Quiero mamacita," whimpers Marta. "Your aunt has to answer some questions," Abby says. Then she asks if the woman is "mamacita," or her aunt, as she claimed. Marta gingerly admits that the woman isn't any relation at all. "She keeps us," she says. "Who -- you and your sisters?" Abby frowns. "Not sisters," Marta sniffles. "Only girls." Abby wants to know more, and lets the girl know that she's safe now and can feel comfortable sharing her secrets. "Who's hurting you?" Abby asks. "Marta, who hurts you?" Marta's lip trembles. "Los hombres," she finally confesses.
Jerry hands Carter a folder containing Kyle's military medical records. Carter opens it and sees a photo of a healthy Kyle, and then looks over at the sick and scarred Kyle and blows out his cheeks in that very Carter way -- the one where you know he's all, "Man, the vagaries of life are very taxing to me. I HAVE SEEN SO MUCH."
Sam sits outside clasping a cup of coffee. Luka plops down next to her and they marinate in an awkward silence for a while before throwing it on the Foreman grill and cooking it up nice and juicy. "I wasn't trying to be a hero this morning," he says. "I asked you to move in because I...I love you." Sam sniffs something she likes and looks at him in surprise, then growing awe. "I'm in love with you, and I thought...I don't know, maybe you feel the same...?" Luka says uncomfortably, and kind of adorably. I do feel the same, Luka. And Sam and I have very similar hair. So dump the one with the kid, come find me, and we'll go bowling. Or, you know, to Europe. Whichever. Sam is staring at him with widened eyes, a smile of disbelief spreading on her face. "Did you just say that?" she wonders. "I've spent too much time wasting time," Luka avers. "So when you're ready, let me know." Sam continues to stare at him, adoration creeping into her eyes. A man pulls up in a pickup truck and it breaks their rapport for a second, but Sam then turns back and loses herself in Luka again, and it's clear she's completely incredulous that someone relatively functional wants to be with her in all her dysfunctional glory.
Pickup Truck Man wails that they need to help him -- they had an incident at the aquarium during a tank cleaning. Sam and Luka hurry over to the flatbed and see a man with a two-foot, maybe three-foot shark hanging off his calf. "It's a nurse shark," PTM says. Yes, and it's nursing right now -- suckling away at the flesh on Stupid Tank Cleaner's leg. "It's important neither Mr. Fahey nor the shark be damaged in any way." The shark flaps its tail as they order the poor, eaten Mr. Fahey to spritz more water on the beloved fish to keep it alive. Sweet, gentle carnivore, long may you wiggle and clench.
