And now, this week's plotline that can be summed up in one paragraph. And it centers on our protagonist, Michael. Dr. Sara explains that her "husband" is having these headaches and fits, and as an internist, she's terribly concerned. The admitting doctor's all, "Does he have insurance?" and even when Dr. Sara can't answer directly, she's all, "That's okay -- just fill this out and we'll immediately tend to you with a vast number of expensive tests." Then "Kevin Freeling" tells the admitting attendant that yes, his mother suffered from epilepsy, [something I didn't catch] and neurological disorders, and we go to Dr. Sara, having a mild freakout. When they're waiting for Michael to have an MRI, Dr. Sara flashes back to that excruciatingly awkward moment when Bellick asked her out at their 12-step meeting, then comments, "I never thought the guys would be so sad for Brad Bellick." You and me both, sister. Michael mentions that a lot of things have changed since Fox River, and Dr. Sara gives him a look like Oh? Is there something you're trying to say here? She says, "You know you can't control this, right?" and Michael smiles as he says, "That's funny, I was just about to tell you the same thing." Dr. Sara pats his shoulder as she reassures him that they can handle nearly anything, so long as they know what they're up against. Michael asks, "What if I don't want to know?" Well, too bad -- the doctors are all going to tell you anyway. But first, Dr. Sara admits that "I needed to have access to your test results, so I told the triage nurse that I was your wife." NOT THAT I'M HINTING FOR A RING seems to be the subtext here. Michael is not at all upset about that. And really, it's a silly detail, given that their level of commitment to one another has included things like going on the lam and/or taking the murder rap for one another. Marriage is a cakewalk after all that. Then a Dr. Malden comes by to ask that Michael be checked in for the night, so they can keep him under observation. But Michael's all, "Oh, I don't think so," on account of him being a wanted man and all. And when the cops show up -- for something completely unrelated -- it spooks him and Dr. Sara enough to where they decide to leave. Dr. Malden pleads with them to stay, saying, "I'm not stupid. I know who you are. I'm not going to turn you in. My concern is for what's going on with your health." Michael thanks him, but he figures Dr. Malden can call Dr. Sara later with the news.
