April has made it her mission to change Stark's mind and she actually approaches him again to once again discuss Kyle. She sits down as he works at a computer and tells him that Nancy will need follow-up appointments every two weeks for the next three years, so she'll make Kyle come with her each time and will examine him herself to make sure he's okay. She pleads that he's absolutely cherished by his parents, and she asks him again to call off the call to protective services. He's a little bit curious at this and she admits that they haven't actually made the call yet. But after a moment, he agrees. She's stunned, but he warns her to leave before he reconsiders and she jets out of there like her hair is on fire. Once she leaves, Stark does seem to take a moment to consider what just happened.
Lexie comes back inside and joins Avery in gazing at Ricky through the window as she reports that Julia is gone for real. She's not looking forward to telling Ricky, but Avery says that if he had to hear bad news, he'd want to hear it from her. A touching piano starts up on the soundtrack as she sighs and goes in to the room. Avery watches as Lexie takes Rick's hand and he starts to cry.
When Richard comes out of surgery Bailey reports that all of the tests were clean, and Richard is too quick to celebrate and write her accident off as clumsiness. Bailey won't let him off the hook so quickly, though, and tells him that something is clearly wrong. He won't listen to her and says that when you get older things like this happen, but she holds firm and tells him that if this was her wife, she'd go and ask the brilliant neurosurgeon who happens to be a close friend if he might take a look. Richard looks very serious but this time he doesn't yell at the insinuation that Adele might have early dementia of some variety.
When Lexie finally leaves the hospital, she finds Avery sitting on her car and waiting for her to make sure she's okay. She seems rather like a deflated balloon and admits that though she told Julia she'd find someone else, she's not sure she believes that. Avery says she will but she brings up the idea of soulmates again, with some desperation in her voice. Avery cuts her off with a sad chuckle and gently informs her that idea is crap, and that it would be a stupid system that only had one match for each person on earth. He's really overgeneralizing since that is totally the case for some people, but he makes his point. He tells Lexie that Ricky and Julia deserve better, and so does she. He then tells her that the guys will be lining up when word gets out that she's single again. Um, isn't word really obviously out by this point? He's not really thinking this through but then again, his approach totally works for him since Lexie asks him with a laugh if he'd be in line. Very seriously he tells her that he is in line, and she gives him a sly little smile that says she doesn't hate that idea.
