Lauren is leaving her apartment when she hears something upstairs in Syd's roped off apartment. She slowly goes to investigate. Everything seems normal until she finds a framed picture of her, Sydney and Ella on the floor. She walks by a suspiciously open closet door with the light on without investigating as the music swells. We catch a brief glimpse of Violet in there. Lauren just keeps walking and leaves. Violet is standing naked in the closet alone, covered only by a green dress she's holding up against her chest. She does a suspicious eye thing. Why is this happening?
At the hospital, Lauren is walking and talking with a doctor who says Dr. Mancini is the best cardiac surgeon this side of the Mayo Clinic. Everybody wants a chance to work with him. Lauren's asking for a chance to just talk to him when he happens to walk up behind her to ask the nearby receptionist for help getting into his office. He seems to have misplaced his keycard. That's some skillful storyline weaving there. Lauren introduces herself to Michael, but he is all business and disinterest. "I'll see you at the interview," he says. Lauren starts to walk off and then decides to play the David card. Michael asks how well Lauren knows David. She mentions they live in the same apartments and that leads to her bringing up Sydney. Michael brushes it off as he enters an elevator. FLASHBACK. Michael is at home putting together a crib. His wife comes in the room to tell him one of his colleagues from the hospital is there to see him. It's Sydney. Michael is obviously shocked to see her and concerned that if the cops found out she's alive they'd both be in a lot of trouble. Sydney puts that concern to rest when she tells him she just finished a 6-year prison term. She's pissed that he's married and living a nice life, and begins to remind him that she protected him from the rap of being an accomplice to a felony. Then, she tries to appeal romantically to Michael. "We want what we want. And we get it. It's just who we are." END FLASHBACK
