Diane's being wheeled into the MRI room by Tom and another doctor or intern or whatever, who takes off after Tom thanks him. Kate comes out from hiding in the MRI room, and Tom says he'll be right nearby in the office.
So Kate takes about five hours to make her way over to the bed, where she says, with much trepidation, "Hi, Mom." "Mom" looks like hell, lying back with her eyes closed. "Can you hear me?" asks Kate. Diane's eyes flutter open, and she weakly grunts, before looking at Kate, her eyes finally focusing. Kate's face half crumples, but she does her best to keep her shit together, and takes her mom's hand. "It's me, Kate," she says, smiling when her mom appears to recognize her. "Katherine?" her mom says, a couple of times, but doesn't seem to have the strength for anything more that. Kate just about breaks down, and she apologizes for everything she's put her mom through. Her mom doesn't say much to this, just watches as Kate starts crying. Turns out Evangeline has better range than I give her credit for. And then, it all goes to shit, because Diane's eyes widen in recognition, with not a little fear thrown in there, and despite Kate trying to soothe her, starts yelling for help. I fail to be moved by this, mainly because this is how my mom reacted the one time I forgot to call her on Mother's Day. So either this is a good Catholic mother's guilt trip or Kate's mom is scared of Kate for some reason.
Katie Mama's cries attract the attention of an orderly, who comes over, and Kate scoots, bumping into a hospital security guard, who demands to know what's going on. Kate half-heartedly attempts to say that she's the woman's daughter and was running to grab a doctor. Hospital Rent-A-Cop don't play that, and grabs Kate by the arm, but before he can finish saying, "We got a situation here," into his walkie-talkie, Kate grabs him and knocks him out with a nice uppercut. So far, I don't think this hospital visit is going as planned.
And imagine how Tom feels! Just a few hours after Kate comes back into his life, he's made out with his ex-girlfriend after they dug up their time capsule, and now a bedridden cancer victim at his hospital is screaming for help while the ex is standing over the body of an unconscious security guard. This is why I can't stay friends with ex-girlfriends. He asks what happened, and she simply says she needs his car keys, and peels off down the hallway to the parking lot, Tom running close behind, instead of, perhaps, helping Diane or the unconscious guard.
