He then calls his wife who finally admits that she's sick as a dog, and he asks why on earth she didn't tell him before. That's a really good question, actually, but not one we get the answer to because Mere just moans about possibly failing and then asks him, "Will you still love me if I fail?" Derek asks her if she wants to be yelled at or told to come home, and she whines that she just wants to be told what to do. Aha! Here is the perfect chance for a metaphor! And he does a good job pulling something nonsensical out of his backside and tells her with a serene smile that the test is a mirror. We then get a ridiculous shot of the Mere on the phone on one side of the screen and Derek's face overlaid on the other side, and each time one of them talks their picture gets stronger. I'm sure it is its own metaphor, somehow. Maybe about how this show is sometime so ridiculous that I have an out-of-body experience and can almost see myself from above, writing my recaps? Mere asks him what on earth that means and finally guesses that she won't like herself if she gives up and won't be able to look at herself in the mirror. Derek won't confirm if that is what he meant -- probably because he doesn't even know what he meant -- and assures her that no matter what she decides, he'll still love her. She's still grumpy but he seems thrilled that this metaphor plan is actually working.
Final session. April is now calm, after her little tension relief session in the men's room. The examiner tells her that she has a patient with an advanced disease that has become terminal; what does she do? April thinks a moment and then answers honestly that she prays for them. Four eyebrows shoot up to the sky as she tells them in a zen-like state that she knows it's not the right answer, and then she adds that she's not even sure He's listening now, anyway. Her male instructor warns her how inappropriate this is but April casually tosses back that so is having premarital sex with a friend in the men's room but she just did that, too. It was around this moment that I put my money on April being the doctor who doesn't pass even though really, they leave that one pretty believably up in the air until the last possible moment. She muses about how she's been surrounded by scientists for a decade and kept quiet about her relationship with God for fear of being laughed at or judged to be less of a doctor. Well, now we know why her revelation last week seemed to come out of left field and it doesn't seem like quite so much of a cheap play by the writers, I guess. She goes on that she was hiding and ashamed to admit that she loves and relies on Him. She's not sure if she screwed up or freed herself from those limitations, but she thinks she's now done hiding. Her examiners seem to be almost done listening, but when one repeats the actual test question again April finally composes herself and launches into an actual answer.
