Abby and Luka have gone up to visit Carter. Why not Chen? I'm a little tired of this threesome being positioned in various geometric shapes. Carter thanks them for coming, but insists that they should go home, especially because Abby might miss her graduation. "I was going to miss it anyway," she shrugs. Stephen arrives with coffee for everyone, and Carter offers his gratitude again, but restates that he thinks they should go home, because he and Kem are fine. Luka and Abby meet each other's gaze for a second, and apparently deem him sincere, because they rise to their feet. "If you..." Abby begins. Carter nods smugly. God, there he goes again -- The Face is back. I had hoped we'd be free for at least one whole episode, but apparently that is impossible. Abby leans down and kisses Carter affectionately on the head. Luka clearly considers doing the same, but settles for a chaste handshake, because the maternity ward is not the place to indulge their secret passion. Carter turns to Stephen and says, "You too, Dad." But Stephen shrugs it off. "I think I'll stay," he says blithely. Carter seems touched.
At graduation, Neela searches frantically for Abby, going so far as to stand on a chair and scan the crowd. She looks so cute in her little pink cardigan and her pink-and-white dress. I love Neela. She's managed to make ambiguity interesting and charming; to me, she's the antithesis of Sam.
Carter tiptoes inside Kem's room. She's facing the other way, lying on her side. Carter quietly tells her that they want to move her to another room, and that when they do, they're taking away the baby. "Would you like to hold him?" he asks. Kem ignores this. She closes her eyes and furrows her brow.
