Owen breaks the news to Ethan, who seems unable to quite grasp it fully. Which is totally understandable, as he's a kid, and adults can barely process sudden death. He worries that it was caused by the ice cream they had -- Killer Brain Freeze -- but Owen assures him that it wasn't and there's nothing anyone could have done to stop it. The two of them then look through the window at Grandma, who is sobbing into Derek's arms and seems almost unable to hold herself upright. Ethan decides that he needs to be the man of the house and tells Owen he's going to go to his grandma, since she needs him to hold her hand. I'm not sure the storyline could lay it on any thicker without Owen actually musing out loud to himself, "Grandma seems like she's made of glass and Dad's been in a coma a long time and I have a deeply unresolved yearning to be a father and have bonded with this child. I wonder if events might already be in motion that would make me want to try and raise this poor not-quite-yet-an-orphan myself despite my partner's complete opposition having children and the two of us finally otherwise finding our footing as a couple after a horribly long and painful emotional journey?"
Jackson walks up to the Keller family to report on the surgeries: fingers are reattached, and in Frankie's case she should hopefully regain full use of her hand after therapy. Tony really enjoys only hearing the glass-half-empty side of these things and when he hears that therapy could last six months to a year, he turns to Al and flips out, screaming that it will be a year and there are no guarantees she'll get the use of her hand back. Al is very sorry but his coping mechanism is to try and make jokes, and he says it's good that Frankie still has all her digits and hey, the family is there for Tony. Jackson raises an eyebrow at the most awkward kinda-apology ever but Tony can't take Al anymore and hauls back and punches him in the nose. It seems fitting that after he does so, he thinks he might have broken his own hand. It's a wonder Frankie hasn't asked Owen to adopt her to get away from the drama of her actual family.
Bailey shuffles her way up to Seth's room but stops just around the corner when she hears Seth's dad yelling at Richard, who is standing with Leah. Richard tells them that Seth needs surgery immediately but Dad refuses to do so since he thinks the hospital is an unsafe "cesspool." Richard insists that it's even more unsafe to try and move Seth to a new hospital and then informs Dad that it's only one doctor infected, and she's been isolated. He, the other staff, and the ORs have all been tested and deemed clean, so it will be fine for them to operate on Seth. Bailey looks utterly betrayed and slinks away as Dad unhappily agrees to the surgery. Once Richard is left alone with Leah she is shocked to hear that Bailey really did do something wrong but Richard cuts her off and hisses that he only said all of that stuff so Dad would agree to surgery, and if she so much as thinks about repeating it he'll have her fired. But of course, Bailey is well and gone by now and doesn't hear any of that.
