Papa Cheech is just finishing up while Non-Drunk slumbers peacefully. Plastics is somewhat in awe, and he asks about the concoction of anti-viral plants, about the chanting (deep relaxation boosts the immune system), and about the feather (Papa just wanted to mess with him). He claps Plastics on the shoulder cheerfully and asks if he as any other questions. Why in fact yes, Plastics does have a question: how can he get Alma's scary dad to not hate him. "That kinda always happens," Plastics muses (I am SHOCKED), but he says Alma's dad doesn't know him. Papa explains that the man likely thinks Plastics is just like any other yahoo turista, like his infirmed frat brother over there. "He wants to know if you respect where you are." Respect for the locals -- six episodes in and I'm starting to understand!
Zee chops at a tree out in the jungle, then has Lily catch the ants that shake out. She tells her to be careful, as their pinchers are as sharp as surgical staples. While Lily jars some ants, Zee explains that Ben's anger isn't personal. She says he got a top neurologist from Buenos Aires to look at Abby, and the results came in today. No improvement in brain function for six months. "So...he has some hard decisions to make." Zee drops some more knowledge: the clinic was Abby's dream too, not just Ben's. They came down here together to make it happen. Lily gets it: the clinic keeps her alive and with him. Zee smiles, then smiles a bit more when Lily gets pinched.
Cole and Clark prepare to head back to the clinic, but Cole first has to tell her how sad the story about her sister was. The only thing is that she doesn't have a sister. Clark starts to walk away but Cole's like, "That whole story was about you!" He tells her she needs to start getting treatment and on a transplant list, like, immediately. Clark says she refuses to be treated like an invalid and (and this feels more and more like the primary reason, which is sad) Dr. Ben doesn't need to go through something like this again. Lady, it is time to PRIORITIZE. Cole finally grabs her by her arm and says she could die from this. Clark responds that no one needs to know.
