Elsewhere, Eric and Mary happily gather wood. And it's clear that their loverly bliss is supposed to be a smack in the face to all the viewers. Here's Mary, strong and healthy. Here's Eric, packing wood. (In more ways than one.) While all this time, April dies with her Eric-sired baby. After Mary complains a bit about freezing to death -- which, is it really that cold if Main Street seems to be more slush than ice? -- she and Eric get back into the truck's cab for a little body warmth. Mary wants the heat on, but Eric reminds her that they won't have enough gas to get back to town if they turn it on. Turn it on, Eric. Turn it on! They huddle together for relative warmth, and after a clumsy invitation to sex, Mary tells Eric that she isn't taking her clothes off. Eric hugs her and tells her how happy she makes him.
Jake tugs a recalcitrant Kenchy into April's hospital room. Kenchy asks what April's pressure is. Instead of answering a question that could help a dying woman, Meddie sniffs, "You smell like a wino." "Nice to meet you, too," Kenchy retorts. "What is her PRESSURE please?!" Mom gives it, and Kenchy learns that April is dilated and her contractions are six minutes apart. Haven't they stopped them with alcohol yet? Kenchy looks with concern at the bloody sheets, and gapes that he needs an ultrasound. "I brought some old ones up from the basement," Mom replies. "I'll go check on them now." Why hasn't she checked on them yet? Jake is hard on Mom's heels. Kenchy tells Meddie to find an O-neg donor if they don't have fresh plasma. Bonnie and Mimi are standing uselessly at the back of the room. Kenchy asks if they have a fetal heart monitor. Bonnie shakes her head, so Kenchy hands over a stethoscope and instructs her on how to listen for the baby's heartbeat. Upset, Bonnie shakes her head and says, "I'm deaf." Kenchy laughs mirthlessly, shaking his head in disbelief, and beckons to Mimi with a "Madam!" Mimi was craning her neck to look out of the room and not really paying attention to anything. Kenchy tells her to come and monitor the baby's heartbeat. Mimi tries to say she can't, but Kenchy's having none of it. Mimi, giving wide nervous eyes to Bonnie, walks over and puts on the stethoscope. Kenchy instructs Mimi to listen for the higher, faster heartbeat -- the one that goes "Fffft! Fffft! Ffft! Ffft!" Once Mimi gets how to do beats per minute, Kenchy sheds his jacket and says he's going to show her how to take blood pressure and pulse.
