Outside, Carter sprints to Doc Magoo's. He leaps over a concrete step and lands wrong, careening to the pavement and hitting hard, recoiling in pain. Slowly, he staggers to his feet, taking a second to catch his breath and swallow the pain before limping over to the diner. Inside, Weaver is chatting with Ponytailed PI when Carter bursts through the door and calls her name.
Weaver charges into the trauma room, then freezes. "Wait, where are you?" she asks, a bit puzzled. The grim facts reveal themselves: ruptured aortic dissection after a forty-unit dose of tenecteplase. The color leaves Weaver's face. "Put the scalpel down," she orders softly. Malucci insists that their time is better spent opening the chest to fix the defect, but Weaver knows that won't work. Frustrated, Chen finally throws up her hands and begs for Weaver to offer one more possible path. "Stop compressions," Weaver instructs. "You killed him." Malucci yanks away his hands, as if to say, "Who, me? She did it." Chen hangs her head and knits her brow, angry at herself.
Roger approaches Reese and Benton, gently ensuring the young boy's good health. "The doctor will make it better, right?" he smiles. Reese signs in the affirmative, then adds something about Carla. "I know," Roger frowns. "Mommy's gone." Roger explains that he's swamped, what with the funeral arrangements and having to call Carla's parents, so he would really appreciate it if Peter took Reese for the night. Benton, taken aback, stammers, "Yeah, I was going to anyway." Pause. The two men stare at each other. "Right, right," Roger finally says. He turns his attention to the child. "Reese, you have to go with your father tonight, okay?" he signs, as though it's torture for the kid to grieve in the arms of his biological dad. He promises to visit Reese in a day or two, then departs with words of love. Benton turns around and spits three nails into the wall. Then, he kisses his son, who caresses Benton's cheek sweetly.
