Brown/Abbott Office. Hannah finds Patch in his office and asks if she can talk to him. Of course she can, Patch says. Hannah tells him that she "passed," and now she can take the actual Huntington's test, if she wants to. Patch tells her that it's a big decision. Hannah says she knows, and then confesses that she called her mom. She says they never even talked about the possibility that Hannah could have it, or how guilty her mom feels about it, or anything -- and it made her realize how much she wants to take the test, because for the first time in her life, she feels connected to a future. "I want to feel my life again. I want to care about me, whether I have it or not." Patch looks at her kindly, and Hannah asks him if he's upset with her. Patch says no, of course not, and he hopes she knows that she never had to convince him of her decision. Hannah says she does, but she would never ask him to do something that he was against. "Ask me to do what?" Hannah tells Patch that the clinic requires an adult accompaniment to the test, and she was kind of hoping that adult would be him. "I know Amy told you to butt out of my life, but the fact that you cared enough to butt in at all? Just really reminds me of how my dad used to be. He's really pushy, too, in a nice kind of way." Patch, who along with the rest of the world is in tears, says he will take Hannah to get her test done. Sniff.
Q & A with Treat. Someone asks Treat if he can point out one thing that made the difference in John's recovery. Treat, who is really acting entirely too pleased with himself, says that it wasn't one particular treatment or course of action, he's just stubborn. GOD. Someone else asks, "So you had hope?" Treat says he guesses he did, and as he continues to talk, our lovely director Tom Amandes treats us to a fine montage: Hannah getting her blood drawn; Amanda watching Charlie hug John for the first time; Bright packing up his work things; Patch, Amy, and Hannah kneeling to pray in church. Treat tells us that the amazing thing about the human spirit is that it always knows how to move forward. "All I did for John Hayes was start him on a path. He has you to thank for all the rest."
