Jungle. Dr. Ben and Zee are waiting on the other side of a rickety rope bridge (it's a show about the jungle -- there has to be a rickety rope bridge) for Lily, who is nervous and taking tentative steps. While they wait, Zee takes the moment to talk to Ben about "our favorite redhead" and basically says that they need her to stay on as a doctor, so maybe he should keep it professional with her and quit giving her reasons to leave in a huff. Meanwhile, Lily, from the bridge, talks about the two kinds of anti-venom they have and what if one doesn't work (Zee: "We try the other one?"), and generally shows herself to be an over-planner. Ben smugly tells her that having a plan is a crutch, and that In The Jungle, you don't know what's gonna get thrown at you, so you have to wing it. Are we catching the themes as they fly hard and fast at our faces? After the bridge, they're met by the babbling girlfriend who leads them to her beloved snake-bait boyfriend, all the while yammering on about how it's her fault because while Snake Bait was trying to photograph the creature (they're wildlife photographers, see), she was inundating him with questions about where their relationship is going. Because, again: Shondaland. Where medical crises always come at romantic crossroads. When Yappy GF finally leads the doctors into the clearing by the riverbed, they see this isn't quite a simple snake bite. Ben says to forget the anti-venom, since the anaconda currently wrapped around poor Snake-Bair isn't poisonous; it'll just squeeze him to death. TITLE CARD!
We jump right back to the jungle, though, where I should mention that Snake-Bair is being played by Adam Campbell, who I remember incredibly fondly from that ridiculous summer mystery show Harper's Island. Yappy GF notes that when she saw the snake coiling, she shoved their tripod in between it and her man, which Ben says likely saved his life. Snake-Bait, who is pained but conscious, calls her his "good luck charm." The doctors puzzle over how to proceed, since it'd take a dozen of them to break the snake's grip. Lily suggests sedating it, and Zee thinks a big ol' dose of ketamine would do the trick. (That's what she said? ...To her gay raver pal?) Ben compliments Lily on the quick thinking.
