Helen's in the kitchen reading the Kübler-Ross book when Will arrives. She quickly shoves the book in a kitchen drawer and calls her sons for supper. Will asks where Joan is. Helen says she's babysitting: "Her latest enterprise." Helen wonders if she's saving up for a tattoo. Will: "Nothing would surprise me." He kisses her on the cheek. She asks if he had a long day. Will doesn't want to talk about it, and asks what she did: "Did you go out to lunch again?" Helen's evasive, saying she only gets half an hour. Will says he called her at work yesterday and was told that she'd gone off campus for lunch. Helen lies, "I just needed to get some air...and a decent cup of coffee." She calls the boys again. They arrive at the same time, just as Will's cell phone is ringing. In the background, you can just barely make out Luke telling Kevin that it's his turn to set the table. Kevin fake-whines, "My arms are tired!" They start punching and shoving each other playfully. Will doesn't say anything when he gets off the phone, and Helen can tell he has to go. She asks, "How long will it be?" He asks her to save him a plate. She and the boys sit down to eat as Will leaves.
Will arrives at the hospital and finds Older Uniformed Cop and Brad Crewson outside a hospital room, looking very grave. Through the window we see Officer Koczara in bed, with a woman at his side. Older Uniformed Cop says that Koczara was still conscious, and his wife found him in time. Apparently he took an overdose of the antidepressants the doctor had given him to get through this. Brad turns around to Will and says, "It's impossible to know how this will affect us...in terms of negative fallout." Oh, shut it, Hobbit Man. Frink: "Okay, I just want to step on that guy." Will enters the room and greets the officer and his wife. Koczara apologizes, saying he's not proud of himself. Will says the important thing is that he's all right. His wife says that's what she keeps telling him. Will thinks it's lucky she came home when she did. She tearfully recounts that she almost didn't, because she was going to stop off for a drink with friends. Will tells Koczara that they're going to keep him overnight, and he will be receiving a psych consult. Mrs. Koczara says, "I can't believe you have the nerve...calling him nuts. It is normal for him to be depressed after what you did." Her husband says, "Nancy..." She goes on about how being a cop is his whole life and this is what happens when it's taken away from him. Will says he wasn't fired, just temporarily suspended. Koczara says, "What she's saying is, it's a stain against me. It's a humiliation, suggesting that I'm a bad cop. Some freaking skell talks trash at me, and I respond with an acceptable amount of force, and I'm the one who gets in trouble? How does that work?" "Skell"? This guy's watched too much NYPD Blue.
