In Ben's room, Mark is calling out orders. Lily tells Mark that Molly is coding in the next room. Mark follows Lily.
In Molly's room, Carter gives Mark the bullet. She's in asystole now. "Mesenteric rupture?" Mark guesses. "Probably," Carter allows. "Nothing you could have done about it," Mark assures him. Mark tells Benton he will take over, and tells Benton what Ben needs so that Mark and Benton can swap patients. Benton goes.
In Ben's room, the perfusionist arrives.
In Molly's room, Harper returns, having ditched Mrs. Molly in the waiting room. Carter brings her up to date by telling her they're trying internal paddles. Mark shocks her. No change. He shocks her again. Harper looks heartbroken.
Ben's room. Bypass a-go-go. Ben goes into v-tach. Doug chattily says, "Come on Ben, you can make it." Suddenly he gets all intense, leaning directly into his face and murmuring, "Hold on, buddy. Hold. ON." Carol watches, looking sad.
Molly's room. Everyone's covered in blood. Mark calls the time of death. Harper cries. Carter tentatively puts a hand on her shoulder for a second, and then says he'll go talk to Molly's parents. Harper is left along in the room, crying and swaying back and forth.
Ben's room. The scene is calm; Carol futzes with some tubes as Doug sits jauntily on a stool, flicking through a chart. Carol nudges Doug to say that Ben's awake. Ben looks confused. Doug smiles, "Hey! You're in a hospital. You're okay." Ben blinks. "You made it," says Doug, his hand on Ben's forehead. Ben has this sort of funny look of good-natured curiosity, as if he's hearing about something that happened to someone else. Mark appears and comments that the cut on Doug's forehead is "pretty nasty" and will require stitches. Without looking away from Ben, Doug tells Mark they can take care of it later. Doug asks Ben's temperature; it's 93° and his vitals are stable. Doug beams, "How about that, kiddo?" Ben smiles.
Hall. Mr. and Mrs. Molly are walking toward the camera, both looking wrecked; Carter stands behind them, watching them go. Mrs. Molly sobs. Suddenly, Beth Goddamn Mahoney, M. fucking D. is shoving a microphone in their faces while her cameraman assaults them with the light on his camera. (As soon as she approaches Mr. and Mrs. Molly, we can see Carter in the background jogging up to them to break it up.) Beth "No-Class" Mahoney, M. Duh infuses her voice with the fakest sympathy ever as she asks, "Excuse me, are you the parents of the little boy in the tunnel? How does it feel to know that Mercy Hospital was clearly three minutes closer --" Carter stands between Bitch Mahoney, Monster D. and Molly's parents, telling Mahoney, "I think you better leave." Beth Mahellney, M. Fuckwad twats, "I'm sorry, I'm talking to these people." "No, you're not," Carter sneers, making way for Mr. and Mrs. Molly to leave unmolested.
