The residents arrive back in Seattle and as soon as they get off the bus they all start checking their Blackberries to try and get their results, which were supposed to go up at midnight. It's now 12:04, and those four minutes have probably taken four years of each of their lives. April runs off the bus and rushes to find a bathroom while the rest of them gripe about how they are sure they failed. Mere seems to have finally gotten the last of the puke out of her system, which is probably for the best as she waits for what could be legitimately life-changing test results. Finally, Jackson seems to get something and after a moment, he grins and tells them with relief that he passed. Cristina is next and she passed; so did Mere, who shrieks and laughs with glee. Alex can't get his results to come up so Avery hands over his phone and after a tense moment, unbelievably, Alex finds out he passed too. The four of them are the picture of pure joy, hugging, laughing, and dancing jigs. But we know what this means for April, and at that moment, Jackson asks if anyone has seen her. They all turn to the door and see her walk out, staring at the screen on her phone, utterly horrified.
