Through a window, Abby watches Carter clean off Kali's dead body, and after a moment she enters the room silently. "She would've started kindergarten this year," Carter whispers. "You all right?" Abby asks. "Hanging in there. How about you?" he asks. "Personally or professionally?" Abby hedges. Carter cracks that as an intern, the two are inseparable. Abby takes a deep breath and admits that today was really, really hard. "I can't imagine what it must feel like to lose a child," she says. Carter doesn't really need to be reminded of that again, does he? But he nods and murmurs, "Yeah...Yep." An uncomfortable silence ensues, because once you've invoked the dead baby, you can't really start talking about the pink plaid Nine West pumps you found last weekend. Pratt interrupts the awkwardness by ducking in and telling them that the children's father hasn't been seen in a year because that's how long ago he died. In Carter's brain, a record gets scratched. Confusion dawns on his face.
Susan is frustratedly trying to find somebody to replace Howard. There's one person in the Dominican Republic and one in Milwaukee she can interview, and as she sets this up, Ray trots around making stupid and pointless jokes. I'm not going to bother with the rest because let's face it -- we all know that Susan's going to offer the job to Neela. Sam changes the tone by telling Susan that Tamira died in the operating room. Clunk. We are sad.
Wendall, Carter, and Abby confer about Manic Mom. Apparently the regulars at his favorite bar confirmed that her husband is dead, and Saige filled in the blanks: Manic Mom stopped eating and sleeping, and went off her valium when she ran out of money. They all realize that this means she could have been hallucinating or otherwise altered when the incident happened in her home. Ray calls Abby away, because she has to go apologize for ditching out on her ride-along. Chuny has given Manic Mom her valium, so she should be coming down soon and able to talk about what happened. "If she knows," Carter intones dramatically.
Susan struggles to interview her Spanish-speaking intern candidate, and the other guy who shows up from Milwaukee is scary-looking. And obviously a Satan worshipper, because he would've had to sell his soul to the devil to get to Chicago that fast. He's covered in tattoos and piercings -- he's what they should have made Ray, except then they could have made him shockingly capable, and that might have made Ray interesting. That, and another actor portraying him. Susan smiles through a serious wince as Jerry tries not to laugh delightedly.
