The tragic sight of wasted bacon strips -- languishing in the trash, gross larvae attached to them -- beckons us back to the clinic. Zee is removing the last few strips from Angus's chest as they both start to reminisce about all the times she's treated him for some awful jungle-born malady or another. Her point seems to be "Stop getting larval sacs buried in your epidermis, handsome," while he makes a point of picking out a specific detail about Zee for each ailment. "This is the time you were wearing that yellow dress, that's when you wore your hair short," et cetera. He's not exactly subtle about proving his point (though he maybe overrates how much Zee's hair and clothing choices count as personal insights). She tells him he should get out of the jungle. He says she should run away with him. Or at least stop thinking about what he wants, or what Cole wants, and ask herself what she wants. Of course, he tries to tip the scales ever so slightly in his favor by calling her by her entire first name, which you know I won't even attempt.
Lily's at Mateo's bedside when he wakes up, and she brushes away his attempt to take her hand in gratitude. She tells him about the bullet and clinic policy and the call to the police, so Mateo pulls off his tubes and gets to steppin'. Lily's all, "But the hole we just cut into your abdomen..." And he's all, "Ay, mira! The police, they cannot find me here. I am a wanted caballero!" She lets him get past her, then lays on the guilt trip, asking if he's going to leave without so much as an explanation for the audience at home? I mean, her? It looks for a second that Mateo's going to do just that ... until the Spanish guitar kicks in. And he turns and looks at her with smoldering eyes. And then grabs her face and kisses her. And writes her a poem which he then seals up in a bottle and throws into the sea, that his love may return to her one day even if he does not. Maybe not that one. But seriously, this is some serious Latin Lover stuff right here. And then, in a genuinely funny moment, Mateo walks right back into the exam room because he's bleeding again.
