As he turns to go part with his money, a pretty woman named Emma emerges from behind and seems quite taken with Owen. They bond over the creepiness of clowns and she has the flirting ratcheted up to 11 already.

April goes to the supply closet for the all-important champagne-cooling blankets and finds Arizona crying there, though she tries to pretend she's also just looking for supplies.

Stephanie and Shane are going over all of the things that are very wrong with Jake Doe including the fact that he's at risk of everyone's favorite dramatic condition - cardiac tamponade. Alex pops in to check on his patient from earlier, who has been discharged, and then nonchalantly asks after the junkies. Smash assures him that the interns have it all under control, but Stephanie is teetering on the edge of a meltdown. Smash finally points out to her that they've been preparing for this all year, and she should enjoy that now they have a night to shine and put all of their newly acquired surgical skills to use. Stephanie is not so sure about that but eventually, when Shane challenges her, she starts screaming instructions out to everyone, as leaderly as she can. The staff is all just kind of surprised so Smash yells at them too and adds, "Lock and load!" He then grins that he's finally had the chance to live out a glorious clichéd medical moment like he's always dreamed.
