#215 : Héros malgré lui

C'est un miracle quand un patient traumatisé survit au voyage à l'hôpital, mettant la pression sur le Dr. Rhodes pour garder l'homme en vie. Le Dr Choi et le Dr Manning ont des difficultés à diagnostiquer l'emplacement de l'infection chez un patient paralysé. Le Dr Reese doit trouver un but pour un veuf affligé qui s'appuie sur un costume de super-héros pour vivre. Pendant ce temps, April pousse le Dr Halstead à utiliser des médicaments non validés pour aider un patient sans autres options.

April Sexton: Oh, so here we go. What letter are we up to now?

Maggie Lockwood: J's. So, Jeremiah if it's a boy, or Jacinta if it's a girl.

April Sexton: Hmm... Jeremiah Sexton-Jenkins. I like it.

Maggie Lockwood: Oh, my God, it's a boy?

April Sexton: Or Jacinta Sexton-Jenkins.

Maggie Lockwood: You're having fun torturing me by not telling me the gender of the baby, aren't you?

April Sexton: A little, but hey, if I can wait 21 more weeks, so can you.


Sharon Goodwin: Dr. Rhodes?

Connor Rhodes: Page me if you need me.

Sharon Goodwin: Case coming your way. Window washer fell 33 stories. Should be DOA, but still alive... Barely.

Connor Rhodes: 33?

Sharon Goodwin: Press will be all over this. Hospital PR's gonna be involved. Get ready for your close-up.

Waiting room

April Sexton: Okay, who's next?

Leah: Damian Butler.

April Sexton: Damian Butler?

Damian Butler: That's me.

Melody Sayers: Oh, God.

April Sexton: Won't be much longer.

Melody Sayers: It's just I have the flu. It's low priority. I get it.

April Sexton: Sir?


Connor Rhodes: Maggie, how many minutes out?

Maggie Lockwood: They're here. Baghdad's prepped.

Connor Rhodes: Thanks.

Ambo entrance

Courtney: Justin Pepper, 23, long fall, axial load injury after his window washing platform gave out. GCS, 3... BP, 70 over palp...


Courtney: Heart rate, 135.

Connor Rhodes: All right, that long a fall, we're looking at injuries to the brain, spine, chest, and abdomen, let alone long bone fractures. Maggie, I need extra hands and an O.R. on alert.

Maggie Lockwood: Done.


Connor Rhodes: What's he got for IV access?

Courtney: 16 gauge on both arms.

Connor Rhodes: All right, very gently, everybody. On my count, one, two, three.

Courtney: Good luck.

Connor Rhodes: Thanks. All right, likely cavitary bleeding. Wheeler, get a groin line. Start the MTP. Hang two units of O-neg on the rapid transfuser until we type and cross. X-Rays... I need chest, pelvis, and C-spine. And let's get the ultrasound over here to fast his belly.

Jason Wheeler: Lungs are clear.

Connor Rhodes: All right.

Jason Wheeler: I'm gonna start the groin line.

Connor Rhodes: Help me reduce this leg fracture. Come on, come on. One, two, three...

X-Ray Tech: X-Ray.

Connor Rhodes: All right, step back… Pelvis down. C-spine.

Nurse: On the box.

X-Ray Tech: Chest X-Ray is up.

Connor Rhodes: Tension hemopneumothorax. Trachea shifted, venous return is down. Give me a chest tube. Show me the pelvis.

Nurse: Got it.

Connor Rhodes: Vertical shear of the left hemipelvis... It needs traction. Pull up the C-spine.

Nurse: Up.

Connor Rhodes: Multiple C-spine fractures. Wheeler, how's that groin line?

Jason Wheeler: Done.

Connor Rhodes: All right, chest tube's in too. Let's move. Justin didn't survive a 330-foot fall just to die in my trauma bay. Let's go, let's go!

Nurse: Go.


Reporter: Witnesses report that Mr. Pepper clung to the window washing platform as it fell, almost riding it like a surfboard. Physicists surmise this likely created wind resistance that not only slowed his plummet, but also absorbed some of the force from impact. That might explain how he survived such a horrific fall.


Connor Rhodes: I'm running the bowel. Feeling tears. Hemostat. Pelvic hematoma and mesenteric bleeders are tied off. Let's resect the bowel quickly and move on. GIA 80 stapler with a reload.

Leah Bardovi: 50% of people who fall four to five stories die. Ten or 11... It's almost 100%, so this is a first.

Connor Rhodes: There's an exception to every rule.

Waiting room

April Sexton: All right, got some more spaces... Next.

Leah: Laura Pastino.

April Sexton: Laura Pastino?

Melody Sayers: No, Melody Sayers.

April Sexton: Okay, uh, Treatment 3. I'll be right there. I'm sorry.

Melody Sayers: No, this one's on me. I thought I could sneak in and see a doctor on my lunch break. It's bad planning.

April Sexton: Okay, I'm April. Can I get you anything? Water? Snack from the meal cart?

Melody Sayers: No thanks. Not much of an appetite. If I need something, I'll just...

April Sexton: Melody? Are you okay?

Melody Sayers: Yeah, sorry.

April Sexton: You just zoned out. That ever happen before?

Melody Sayers: Probably. I'm a first-year associate. My law firm's specialty. 60-hour weeks.

April Sexton: Can I see your wrist?

Melody Sayers: Yeah.

April Sexton: Pulse is really weak.

Melody Sayers: I'm just exhausted. I'm gonna go home and sleep. I'll come back tomorrow.

April Sexton: Your feet hurt?

Melody Sayers: Yeah, I've just been sitting for awhile.

April Sexton: Do you mind if I take a look?

Melody Sayers: Sure.

April Sexton: Ankles are swollen. Pitting edema. Do me a favour. Stick around for a little longer. I'm gonna get you in.

Melody Sayers: Okay.


Ethan Choi: Americano.

Natalie Manning: Thank you. Wow, all this for Connor's trauma?

Ethan Choi: If it bleeds, it leads.

Julia: Help! I need help! My husband!

Natalie Manning: What happened?

Julia: He called me at work. He said he wasn't feeling well. But then... But when I came home for lunch, I-I found him like this.

Ethan Choi: Hey, hey, can you hear me? Thready pulse, diaphoretic. He's burning up.

Natalie Manning: He take any drugs? Could it be an overdose?

Julia: No, never.

Natalie Manning: Septic shock?

Ethan Choi: I think so. We gotta get him inside.

Natalie Manning: All right, I'm gonna get techs to bring out a gurney, and set up for central access if we need one.

Ethan Choi: I'm gonna help you out of the car, okay?

Nick: No, get back. I can do it myself.

Julia: No, Nick, let him help you. Don't let him, please.

Ethan Choi: Easy.

Julia: Nick, please, no...

Nick: Julia... Julia... I need your help.

Julia: I know, baby, I-I...

Nick: I'm sorry.

Julia: Okay, okay.

Nick: My legs don't work.

Ethan Choi: It's okay, Nick. I got you.

Julia: Here.

Ethan Choi: All right. Let's go.


Maggie Lockwood: Dr. Choi, you're going to Treatment 5. Dr. Manning's already there.

Ethan Choi: Thanks, Mags.

Maggie Lockwood: Dr. Reese?

Sarah Reese: Oh, my...

Edward Thompson: This woman needs aid.

Maggie Lockwood: Dr. Wheeler!

Edward Thompson: I saw her fall crossing the street. When I got to her, she was unable to speak. Think she's having a stroke.

Maggie Lockwood: Treatment 2.

Treatment 2

Sarah Reese: Weak pulse... Right side of the face is droopy. Right side body, limp.

Jason Wheeler: What do we got?

Edward Thompson: Possible stroke.

Jason Wheeler: Okay. Thanks, Super-dude.

Edward Thompson: You're safe now, ma'am.


Maggie Lockwood: Oh, Lord. We need a stretcher!


Connor Rhodes: Right now, your son is in shock. There is massive blood loss from extensive injuries to his liver, his pelvis, his intestines. We've packed his abdomen to control the bleeding and removed a portion of his bowel.

Mrs. Pepper: He's still open.

Connor Rhodes: That's what we call a negative pressure dressing. It helps to temporize the abdomen...

Mr. Pepper: Is Justin going to survive?

Connor Rhodes: When he arrived in the E.D., he was minute to minute. Right now, he is hour to hour, and that is a very good first step.

ICU entrance

Connor Rhodes: This is Dr. Rhodes. Who is this and how did you get this number? No, my patient is very much alive, thank you.

Sharon Goodwin: Sounds like the press got to you before we did. Dr. Connor Rhodes, this is Evelyn Kumer, public affairs rep for the hospital. She'll be coordinating all media platforms.

Evelyn Kumer: So, reporters got your number?

Connor Rhodes: Yeah, they wanted to know if Justin had died on the operating table. Where do they get this crap?

Sharon Goodwin: Who knows? But the rumour mill is grinding.

Evelyn Kumer: And you're in the spotlight. A man falls 33 stories and is still alive? People are gonna want to know, is this a miracle or a setup for tragedy? Excuse me.

Sharon Goodwin: Until we know for sure how this is gonna turn out, let's stick with "no comment."


April Sexton: 102.7. BP, 80 over 55.

Melody Sayers: Whoa, that's really low.

Will Halstead: Uh, Melody, I hear a crackling in your chest. This means fluid is building up in the lungs.

Melody Sayers: A symptom of the flu?

Will Halstead: I don't think so.

April Sexton: The exhaustion, swelling in your legs, low blood pressure are possible indicators of a cardiac problem.

Melody Sayers: My heart? Oh, my God.

Will Halstead: We're gonna take a look and see what's going on, okay?

Melody Sayers: Okay. That just... That doesn't make any sense. I'm only 25 years old. I walk to work instead of taking the train. Eat salads... Take spin classes.

Will Halstead: Okay, dilated left ventricle, poor wall motion. April, let's get her on the monitor. Your heart is pumping very poorly. Uh, I'll need an echo, but if I had to say, I'd guess it's working at 20, 25%.

Melody Sayers: My heart is failing?

Will Halstead: It's unusual for a young woman. Could be a thyroid imbalance, a kidney issue, virus.

April Sexton: We'll figure it out. Before you know it, you'll be back at spin class.

Melody Sayers: I'm gonna hold you to that.

April Sexton: Melody... Melody?

Will Halstead: No pulse or breathing. V fib... Get on her chest. Charge to 200.

Nurse: 200. Charged.

Will Halstead: Hold CPR. Clear. 200 again… Hold CPR. Clear.

April Sexton: I got a pulse. It's weak but steady. She's breathing.

Will Halstead: Let's get her to the cath lab.


Will Halstead: Great catch, April. Had she gone home, no way help would've gotten to her in time.


Julia: So it's an infection?

Ethan Choi: Fever, elevated white cells, inflammatory markers, and lacate. I'd say so.

Natalie Manning: Most likely UTI. It's common in paraplegics.

Nick: Been down that road a few times. Life with a catheter, right?

Ethan Choi: We made to need to replace it. Suprapubic?

Nick: T-boned by a drunk driver who didn't stop for a red light. He walked away with a few stitches.

Julia: That was then. We're moving on. Brighter days ahead.

Ethan Choi: Area around the catheter looks clean. No obvious abscess or skin infection.

Nick: Answer's in the pee then.

Natalie Manning: We'll get this and blood cultures up to the lab, find out what we're dealing with.

Nick: Sorry about lashing out earlier. I sometimes forget I'm half a man.

Julia: No, you're not.

Ethan Choi: I'm with her.

Nick: Yeah, well, she's one of a kind. Not letting her get away.

Julia: Good plan.


Maggie Lockwood: Hey... K... If it's a boy, Kalani. If it's a girl, Kiersleigh. What do you think?

April Sexton: Pass.

Maggie Lockwood: Ulch.

April Sexton: Any word from the cath lab about Melody?

Maggie Lockwood: No, but I should hear something soon.

April Sexton: Okay, I have an OB appointment. Should be fast, though... 20 minutes, tops. I can push it.

Maggie Lockwood: Or I can text you if I hear something.

April Sexton: Because of the TB, Dr. Lee likes to see me every two weeks. You'll text me about Melody?

Maggie Lockwood: Mm-hmm. Now go, don't be late for your appointment.


Sarah Reese: We haven't officially met. I'm Dr. Reese.

Edward Thompson: Hi. Edward Thompson.

Sarah Reese: That was quite an entrance, Edward.

Edward Thompson: Yeah, I could imagine. The suit, elderly woman in my arms.

Sarah Reese: Yeah.

Edward Thompson: How is she?

Sarah Reese: Uh, doing well...

Edward Thompson: Oh.

Sarah Reese: Thanks to you getting her here so quickly.

Edward Thompson: Oh, that's great.

Sarah Reese: How are you? How are you feeling?

Edward Thompson: Okay, I think. But I never passed out before. What... Uh, what happened?

Sarah Reese: Uh, your labs and EKG are normal, so I think you were just so excited in the moment that when it was over, you fainted.

Edward Thompson: And where are my clothes? A nurse said she'd get 'em, but she never came back.

Sarah Reese: Unfortunately, we had to cut off the costume, so that we could examine you.

Edward Thompson: Cut it off? You mean... It's destroyed?

Sarah Reese: Uh, yes.

Edward Thompson: Oh, God. You had no right. I... I need it.

Sarah Reese: Edward, breathe. Breathe. All right, nice and s-all right, here. Hey, look at me, look at me. Just like this. Two seconds in. Four seconds out. Two seconds in. Four seconds out.

Edward Thompson: I need it.


Connor Rhodes: 33 stories. God. Massive subdural hemorrhage. Significant left shift. Big mass effect is crushing his brain inside of his skull.

Sam Abrams: Well, he did fall off a building.

Connor Rhodes: Craniotomy, right?

Sam Abrams: To what end? He's coagulopathic. I go in and take out the clot, it'll just re-accumulate.

Connor Rhodes: No, I don't think so. I'm actively giving him plasma, platelets, and cryo.

Sam Abrams: Which improve his overall chances of survival from 1% to 2. I'm not opening up his skull. I question whether he's even strong enough for this CT, but that was your call.

Connor Rhodes: If the pressure in his brain isn't relieved, it's over. That's 100%. I got him this far. He'll get through surgery.

Sam Abrams: All the king's horses and all the king's men... Guess they should've gone to you.


Daniel Charles: Full costume?

Sarah Reese: Cape and all. When Edward learned it had been destroyed, he was so distraught, he could hardly even breathe.

Daniel Charles: That's a pretty extreme reaction, but, you know, wardrobe and self-esteem can be deeply intertwined. The costume... Ultimately, it's just a symbol that represent something crucially important to Edward. Our job's to figure out what.

Sarah Reese: The inciting incident that made it necessary... The origin story. You know, because we're talking about a superhero.

Daniel Charles: Uh-huh.

Sarah Reese: Like... Like when Tony Stark became Iron Man.

Daniel Charles: Why did Billy Batson become Captain Marvel?

Sarah Reese: Nice. Pickle.


Ethan Choi: Urinalysis is clean, so your infection isn't from a UTI. Clear.

Natalie Manning: Not pneumonia.

Ethan Choi: Meds?

Natalie Manning: Aspirin, midodrine, tramadol. No steroids, immunosuppressants. No red flags. I'll check the D-dimer. It could be a DVT.

Ethan Choi: Yeah.

Julia: Deep vein thrombosis?

Natalie Manning: D-dimer's negative. No clots.

Ethan Choi: Abscess then. The hot spot would be the sacrum.

Nick: I-I can't...

Ethan Choi: Yeah, I got you.

Natalie Manning: Nothing dermal.

Ethan Choi: It must be hiding deep down.

Nick: The, uh, scar... I'm thinking of getting a tattoo to cover it... He and she stick figures riding POPS.

Julia: It's a surf spot in Waikiki. We took a lesson on our honeymoon. We stood up on our first wave.

Ethan Choi: Did you feel something?

Nick: Um, I don't know. Maybe.

Natalie Manning: Let's get a CT chest, pelvis and abdomen. Infection may be abdominal or in a deep space.

Ethan Choi: Yeah. Hang tight. We're getting closer.

Natalie Manning: We'll be back.

Julia: You felt that?


Sam Abrams: Good hemostasis.

Connor Rhodes: No new bleeds. He tolerated the surgery well.

Sam Abrams: Appears luck's on your side today.

Connor Rhodes: If that's how you wanna put it.


Audrey Lee: There's no heartbeat.

April Sexton: No. No, no, please, look again.

Audrey Lee: I'm so sorry.

April Sexton: No. Wh...

Audrey Lee: You'll need a D&C. If there's a room available, I can do it now.

April Sexton: Okay. I need to get back to work.

Audrey Lee: April, no one would expect you to...

April Sexton: I have to. I... There's a... A patient I'm worried about.

Audrey Lee: Are you sure? Okay. Well, you know the nurses up there. You just give them a call when you're ready. The sooner the better though.

April Sexton: End of the day. Tomorrow at the latest.


Will Halstead: Hey, April.

April Sexton: Cardiology make a diagnosis?

Will Halstead: Viral myocarditis. She's only in the E.D. until a bed opens up in the CCU.

April Sexton: She needs cardiopulmonary support. Infection's that bad?

Will Halstead: Well, the hope is partial bypass will rest her heart enough to let the antiviral meds get the upper hand.


Melody Sayers: That's doing most of my heart's job now.

April Sexton: I know. It's hard to keep your mind from racing to that dark place. Is there anyone I can call? Uh, family?

Melody Sayers: My parents are divorced. Mom's in Idaho. Dad's in New Hampshire. I'm not ready to deal with all that yet. But I don't want to be alone. Will you sit with me?

April Sexton: As long as you need.

Melody Sayers: Thank you.


Sarah Reese: What was her name?

Edward Thompson: Rachel. Way out of my league. I've always been the quite one. She was the opposite.

Sarah Reese: Hm.

Edward Thompson: I rode her coattails, yet she still loved me. And then it was over. My wife was gone.

Sarah Reese: When did Rachel pass?

Edward Thompson: Last year... Ovarian cancer. It took her so fast. I couldn't help her. I couldn't ease her pain. I could only watch. I was useless, weak.

Sarah Reese: And the suit?

Edward Thompson: Stumbled across it online. I don't know why I ordered it. But when it came, I tried it on, and... I felt different, stronger. I just want to be useful. I just wanna be able to help.

Sarah Reese: I understand. Uh... We'll come up with a plan. Let me talk to my supervisor.


Maggie Lockwood: Hey, how was your ultrasound?

April Sexton: It was fine. I was just thinking about Melody. She thought she only had the flu.

Maggie Lockwood: Yeah. Okay.

Will Halstead: Hey, walk with me.

April Sexton: The CPS working?

Will Halstead: A-line pulsatility is decreasing.

April Sexton: Heart's beating less and less on its own.

Will Halstead: But it's only been a few hours. The meds need awhile to build in her system.

April Sexton: And we can't speed up the process? We can?

Will Halstead: IVIG and plasmapheresis. It's method to block Melody's immune system from attacking heart muscle as it tries to clear the infection.

April Sexton: Well, why aren't we doing it?

Will Halstead: The science is unproven. The unknowns worry me. The risk of anaphylaxis, additional infections, inflammatory side effects.

April Sexton: Well, she already coded. Another one could be right around the corner. Isn't it worth trying anything?

Will Halstead: Not if it does more harm than good.


Sarah Reese: Yes, and the suit was how Edward dealt with his wife's death. See, I'm concerned that if he leaves, he's just gonna go get another one, and that will lead him right back here. Some knucklehead will see him in that costume, and pick a fight. "Let's see how tough you are, Super-guy."

Daniel Charles: Hm, it's possible, but... Is he having any suicidal thoughts?


Sarah Reese: No.

Daniel Charles: And he's certainly not a danger to others. He literally presented saving a woman's life. I mean, he just doesn't meet the criteria for a psychiatric hold.

Sarah Reese: Okay.


Waitress: There you go.

Connor Rhodes: Thank you.

Reporter: Dr. Rhodes? Dr. Rhodes, wait. Can you tell us about the miracle patient, Justin Pepper?

Connor Rhodes: I...

Reporter: Please, anything.

Reporter 2: The people want to know.

Connor Rhodes: Well... The craniotomy we performed was successful. His blood pressure is steady. The bleeding in his chest and belly has slowed, so, fortunately, we've been able to back off of the transfusions.

Reporter: Is he gonna pull through?

Connor Rhodes: Well, it is still too early to tell, but we are fighting the good fight. Now, if all continues to go well, Ortho will be able to start treating his bone fractures tomorrow. Now, if you'll excuse me, I've got to get back to my patient.

Sharon Goodwin: What the hell was that?

Connor Rhodes: My patient's doing well. I didn't see why the press shouldn't know.

Sharon Goodwin: Any interaction with the media goes through me. I wouldn't have let you come out here and grandstand like that. What if the patient dies? You gonna hold a press conference then?


Natalie Manning: Hey.

Ethan Choi: Hey. Thoracic hardware's stabilizing the spine on the T4 fracture. Otherwise, everything looks normal.

Natalie Manning: Colon has descended. It could be a colonic pseudo-obstruction. They are common in paraplegics.

Ethan Choi: Yeah, but I don't see any free air or fluid.

Natalie Manning: Hm, the infection's gotta be hiding somewhere.

Ethan Choi: Let's try a white blood cell scan. Tag some of his own infection-fighting cells with a tracer dye, and see where they go.

Natalie Manning: Let his immune system show us where the hot spot is. Good idea. I'll get on it.

Ethan Choi: Hey, Nat.

Natalie Manning: Yeah?

Ethan Choi: Uh, when I pressed on Nick's abdomen, I was below a sensory loss level. He shouldn't have felt anything.

Natalie Manning: His abdominal wall is inflamed. When you applied pressure, it fired off a signal. If anything, Nick felt nausea, but nothing tactile. He couldn't have.

Ethan Choi: Yeah, I guess not.


April Sexton: 103.5

Melody Sayers: It's gone up. What about my heart? Improvement?

Will Halstead: Unfortunately, it's not responding the way I'd hoped.

Melody Sayers: I Googled myocarditis. Severe cases, people needed heart transplants. Am I one of them?

Will Halstead: Possibly. But we're not there yet. There is another procedure we can try... IVIG and plasmapheresis... But I have to warn you, there are some risks.

Melody Sayers: What do you think?

April Sexton: If your heart stops beating again, it may never come back.

Melody Sayers: This procedure... Is it an operation?

Will Halstead: No, an infusion. It can be done right here in the treatment room.

April Sexton: I'll be with you the whole time.

Melody Sayers: Okay.

Will Halstead: Okay.


Julia: Gram-negative bacteria? What is that?

Natalie Manning: It's a common germ found in water, soil, plants, the digestive tract... Sometimes the skin. They don't always lead to illness, but when they invade somewhere they are not endemic to, you can get pretty sick.

Nick: So what did these germs get into?

Ethan Choi: The muscles surrounding your spine. There's an abscess at the T4 vertebrae.

Julia: Is it treatable?

Natalie Manning: Yes. A surgeon will make an incision in your back, and drain it. The hardware may need to come out as well.

Ethan Choi: Do it today, you'll likely feel better immediately.

Nick: We're good, babe. We're all good.

Natalie Manning: There is something else, though. In addition to the bacteria, the biopsy showed a cluster of cells that are not native to the paraspinal muscles. The lab is still trying to figure out exactly what these cells are, but they shouldn't be there, nor do they...

Nick: They come from my body.

Ethan Choi: So, what are you guys not telling us?

Nick: They're stem cells. We've been going to Mexico to get injections to reverse the paralysis. I'm gonna walk again.

Julia: I know that look. You think we're crazy. Abandon a state-of-the-art hospital for a clinic in Veracruz, but what Nick needs, we can't find here. And between the FDA and constantly changing politics and social taboos, we just...

Natalie Manning: But leaving the country? There is no oversight. The bacteria that caused your abscess likely came from a treatment.

Nick: To ditch the wheelchair, it's worth it.

Julia: You touched Nick's abdomen, and he felt it. He felt it.

Nick: I'm gonna walk again. And Julia and I are gonna get back to the life that we dreamed of... The one that she deserves.

Ethan Choi: Okay. We'll set up the surgery to have the abscess drained, then go from there.

Julia: Okay.


Edward Thompson: Sir, is everything okay? Nurse? Somebody? Oh, my God. Uh, breathe, sir, breathe. Breathe. Look at me, look at me. Two seconds in, four seconds out. Slowly. I need some help!

Maggie Lockwood: Here, here, here. What happened?

Edward Thompson: Uh, he... He suddenly grabbed his chest and was short of breath.

Maggie Lockwood: All right, possible MI.

Edward Thompson: Uh...

Maggie Lockwood: We gotta move. Thank you.

Sarah Reese: Edward, are you okay?

Edward Thompson: Yeah, I think. Uh, he needed help.

Sarah Reese: Okay, well, I saw. You saved him. And look, in a hospital gown, no less. Let me... Let me help you back to bed.


Mrs. Pepper: What's happening?

Connor Rhodes: Asystole. Crash cart and a chest tray.

Nurse: Got it.

Connor Rhodes: Take over compressions.

Mr. Pepper: Scalpels? You're operating here?

Connor Rhodes: There's no electrical activity in the heart, so I can't shock it back. Internal CPR is my only option.

Mrs. Pepper: Oh, my God…

Connor Rhodes: All right. Come on, beat. Amp of epi.

Nurse: One amp.

Connor Rhodes: Come on. Come on. All right, we've got a rhythm. He's back. He's back.


Daniel Charles: Uh, quite a turnaround.

Sarah Reese: I know, right? I was worried I wouldn't be able to pull it off as smoothly as you, but it worked out. It's a new world for Edward.

Daniel Charles: Is it? Deception breaks doctor-patient trust. We don't manipulate. We guide. Your ruse provided Edward with a moment of revelation, not the framework to build his future on. I mean, trust me, the costume is not yet a thing of his past.

Maggie Lockwood: Okay, discharge papers for Edward.

Sarah Reese: I'm gonna need a little more time.

Maggie Lockwood: Oh, okay.


Mrs. Pepper: He feels cold.

Connor Rhodes: His blood pressure is very low. We're pushing meds, but his heart is really struggling to circulate blood through his body.

Mr. Pepper: Justin is a climber. He always has been.

Connor Rhodes: Wow.

Mr. Pepper: Uh, a few years ago, he realized that rock faces weren't enough.

Mrs. Pepper: Oh, he loved his life.

Connor Rhodes: It's not over.

Mr. Pepper: But his heart will fail again, won't it?

Connor Rhodes: If it does, I'll restart it. I'll keep restarting it.

Mrs. Pepper: That last resuscitation was... So violent.

Connor Rhodes: Your son still has a chance.

Mrs. Pepper: Does he?

Mr. Pepper: Please... No more heroics.

ICU entrance

Sharon Goodwin: Dr. Rhodes, I admit, I wanted you to be the hero today. And I know you did too. But maybe it's time to stop.

Doctor lounge

Ethan Choi: Hey.

Natalie Manning: Hey.

Ethan Choi: Got an update from the neurosurgical floor. They just got started on Nick.

Natalie Manning: These foreign clinics... $30,000 a treatment, sometimes more. The stem cells are shipped in from all over the world. There's no way to prove they're even authentic, and the success rates on their websites... Totally unverifiable.

Ethan Choi: Scary, I know. But still, stem cell research is making huge leaps.

Natalie Manning: Yeah, maybe for neurodegenerative diseases. But spinal cord injuries like Nick's? That tech is years away.

Ethan Choi: Yeah.


April Sexton: Just give me a second.


April Sexton: Will... Will, I need you in here.

Will Halstead: All right, I gotta go.

April Sexton: Melody's A-line pulsatility is fluctuating.


Will Halstead: This just start?

April Sexton: A couple minutes ago.

Melody Sayers: Is my heart getting worse?

Will Halstead: Uh, no, better.

April Sexton: 101. Your temp's gone down. It means your body's starting to fight back.

Melody Sayers: I'm gonna be okay?

Will Halstead: Well, we'll get another blood test, and if your white cell count has improved as well, and your heart continues to strengthen, then I'll dial down the support.

Melody Sayers: Oh, my God. Oh, God, I thought for sure... Thank you, April. You saved my life. Oh, God, I was so scared.

Will Halstead: You're good.

Melody Sayers: I should call my parents.

Will Halstead: Of course.


Will Halstead: Yeah, I gotta say, I did not expect IVIG and plasmapheresis to be so effective, let alone that quickly. You know, maybe coupling it with the CPS... Or perhaps, you know, maybe the meds just finally worked on their own. You know what? Who cares. It worked.

April Sexton: Yeah.

Will Halstead: Yeah?

April Sexton: We got the win.

Will Halstead: Yeah... You don't seem excited.

April Sexton: No, I am. It's just a long day.

Will Halstead: Yeah, but a good one. Nice job.


Ethan Choi: Neurosurgeon said everything went well.

Nick: I feel much better. It's like night and day.

Ethan Choi: Mind if I take a look?

Nick: All good back there?

Ethan Choi: Yeah. No surprises.

Nick: Great. Ready to put today behind me... No pun intended.

Ethan Choi: Nick, when I was examining your abdomen, you thought you felt something. You didn't, did you?

Nick: Just my wife's eyes desperately wishing I could.

Ethan Choi: These treatments you're getting in Mexico... They're not working. And given your injury, the chances of paralysis being reversed is almost zero.

Nick: I can't give up.

Natalie Manning: Stem cells can turn into any part of the body. Instead of curing you, they could form a mass or a tumour. Please, don't get anymore injections.

Nick: I have to. I love Julia more than anything, but there are... Intimacies that I can't provide. Our bond is built on hope. It's what holds us together. So it doesn't matter if you believe the treatments won't work. Julia does. That's enough for me.

Natalie Manning: But you're risking your life.

Nick: She is my life. I don't want you to share your concerns with her.

Ethan Choi: Okay. Good luck.

ICU Entrance

Natalie Manning: Good luck? Ethan, are you kidding?

Ethan Choi: Nat, I've met combat vets who have been paralyzed. The feelings of inferiority can be overwhelming. If you told them a bottle of snake oil might help them walk again, they'd drink it every time.

Natalie Manning: So you agree with what Nick's doing?

Ethan Choi: I understand it, Nat.

ER: Treatment

Edward Thompson: It wasn't real.

Sarah Reese: The situation was staged, but your response was absolutely real. But I shouldn't have tricked you. I thought building you up from the inside would help you connect to your true self, but I realize now... You've always known exactly who you are. The real goal is making sure others can see that.

Edward Thompson: What's that?

Sarah Reese: A hospital volunteer vest. I know it's not as flashy as your other outfit, but around here, there are a lot of people in need. Seeing you in this, they'll know you're someone they can depend on... Someone who can help them… Think about it.


Maggie Lockwood: Hey.

Nurse: Surgery? I have Procedure Room 3 open. I'll schedule you in. Come on up.


Maggie Lockwood: April? April... I saw your name on the list for a D&C.

April Sexton: It was my ultrasound. There wa... There wasn't... I-I don't... I don't know when. I-I don't... I don't know why... My baby's... Heart... It stopped...

Maggie Lockwood: It's okay.

April Sexton: It stopped beating.


Tate Jenkins: Hey.

Oh eh bien moi je m'y attendais pour April! Ce qui ne rend pas la chose plus facile... assurer sa journée de boulot comme ça quel courage! Mais c'est vrai que le travail peut vraiment aider à ne pas perdre pied dans certaines circonstances!

Pauvre Dr Rhodes il a vraiment tou fait pour sauver ce monsieur mais il n'y avait vraiment rien à faire...

J'étais super triste pour April, je ne m'y attendais tellement pas ! J'espère qu'elle et Tate s'en sortiront, je les adore ensemble !

Sinon, j'ai aussi remarqué que le Dr Charles était moins présent mais on le reverra sûrement plus dans les épisodes suivants.

J'ai beaucoup aimé Reese avec son super-héros ^^

Mon Dieu, April... Pour pas s'y attendre, je ne m'y attendais pas ! C'était boulversant !

L'histoire du super-héro était top et j'ai bien aimé comme Reese a fait pour gérer le truc au final. C'est moi ou Dr Charles est de moins en moins présent ?

Pauvre Connor, il s'est un peu brûlé les ailes sous les feux des projecteurs mais bon, en temps normal il arrive à sauver tout le monde alors ça fait bizarre de le voir perdre quelqu'un. En même temps le mec avait chûté de 33 (!!) étages, c'est juste énorme !

Je ne m'yattendais pas du tout pour April, très triste !
