As Alex fiddles with Seth's bandages post-surgery, Mindy starts to cry a bit. Seth wakes up and groggily asks if they are gone, and as he feels the bandages and the elation of not having man boobs any more, he wakes right up. Mindy only starts to sob harder, which freaks him out a bit, but Alex assures him that it's just that she was scared, but now she's happy he's okay, and he moves her over so she can stand right next to her son. It ranks up there as one of the most sincere interactions he's had with a patient and loved one, especially considering he had to yell at her earlier. Seth is absolutely beside himself and he grins and tells Alex that he's the man, but Alex disagrees and tells Seth he's the man, so Seth gives him a fist bump. This show does know how to do a heartwarming moment, that's for sure.
April is giving her presentation to the panel and though she starts by saying that nothing other than new lungs will save him, she then goes into all of the bad things they uncovered. Richard sits down as she's listing all of Roy's maladies while Cristina slumps against the back wall, cringing like she's in actual, physical pain having to watch these proceedings. That said, April's delivery is pretty hard to watch because she's so nervous, and it only gets worse as Richard starts to question why she convened the panel at all if he's not a good candidate. April stutters and tries to come up with a good reason but Richard implies that none of the test results changed, so she should have realized this before wasting anyone's time. As a last-ditch effort, April grabs at the first new piece of info she can. Unfortunately that is the info about Roy and his daughter being estranged, and she spins this into his not having a support system and therefore not being trustworthy to keep up with his post-surgery needs. A mumbled, low noise comes from the back of the room and lo and behold, it's actually Cristina, who mumbles, "That's not a reason," obviously ticked that April has gone that route. Everyone turns to look at her and Teddy asks her a question so Cristina manages to answer, though she never looks up from her feet as she's doing it. She tells the board that support is just one factor, not the only factor, and that he's a borderline patient, but that he has the will to live and she's learned through past transplant surgeries that that is one of the most important things. She says with more conviction than she's had about anything since the shooting that if they give Roy the lungs, he will live. "I know it." April's mouth is hanging open as large as one of the Scream masks, but Teddy gives a half smile, obviously pleased and relieved that her protégé has finally spoken up about something, even if she did it the whole time staring at her toes.
