Commercials. The President wants you to be careful frying your turkey.
FlashJack! Our Lady of Perpetual Lowered Inhibitions Hospital. Jack sees his father talking to an irate-looking gentleman; a discussion with a nurse reveals that it's the dead woman's husband, who's threatening to sue. Apparently Jack's dad talks him down, because when we see him last, he's crying and Jack's dad is rubbing his shoulder.
The puddle. A frantic Kate wakes Jack up, and he immediately disregards Ethan's seemingly genuine warnings and starts the chase again. "Not again!" he shouts.
FlashJack! Our Lady Looks Pretty Hot Through The Bottom Of This Highball Hospital. It's an administrative hearing of some kind; Jack's dad (whose name is "Christian") is spinning his web of lies for the review board, who seem to buy it just fine. They ask, however, if Jack's dad was aware the patient was pregnant. "Absolutely," he says, though Jack's expression suggests this is not the case. But, uh, who cares? I mean, why would he lie here? It is his fault if he's operating drunk, but it's not his fault if no one in the ER told him the woman was pregnant. As a precipitating event for Jack's sudden attack of conscience, this revelation lacks oomph. But of course, the dead woman's pregnancy dovetails with Claire's pregnancy, so for a writer desperate to make a fundamentally square character seem multifaceted and cool, that's enough to build a whole dramatic confrontation around. And so Jack suddenly about-faces and reveals to all and sundry that his dad is a drunken failure who never really loved him.
