Trama, Sinossi Episodio
Smalls, ovvero il Colonnello Elwood Green, fa una sorpresa al personale del turno di notte, collegandosi in videochiamata assieme alla First Lady, la quale ringrazia personalmente tutti per l'assistenza che loro danno ai soldati reduci dai campi di battaglia. Gwen blocca un uomo subdolo e ipocrita che maltratta moglie e figlio. Sfortunatamente per lei, e' l'unica ad avere intuito gli abusi.
Sinossi originale: TC's veteran therapy leader, Colonel Elwood Green, aka Smalls, stops by the hospital to make a big announcement. Well, actually, he doesn't make the announcement; First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden do. Over Skype, the first and second ladies thank the hardworking staff of San Antonio Memorial for all their volunteer work, giving back to local veterans. It's a full moon, which has unleashed the crazies on the ER. Ragosa examined a teenager who wore a necklace made of squirrel parts. Upon hearing this, Kenny decides to start a pool, and whoever has the weirdest case that night wins everyone's money. As the shift continues, Krista takes a cockroach out of a guy's ear... and then watches him eat it. She then helps a guy who tried to kiss a rattlesnake on the lips to impress his girlfriend, and Drew has a teenage patient with a ball of sunflower seeds stuck in his intestines. Seeing his early lead dwindling, Ragosa bribes Kenny for the next crazy patient... which gets him a boyfriend and girlfriend attached at her braces and his... well, you know. This puts Drew in last place, but Nurse Mollie says 50 bucks will get him the craziest patient of them all: a woman who stuck a chicken up herself thinking it would grow into a baby. Looks like Drew's the big winner! Jordan has a new patient: a little boy named Ethan, whose anxious mother Lisa called 911 for a simple fever. When Paul and Jordan try to ask Ethan some questions, Lisa won't stop interfering - until she faints and hits her head against the wall. When she comes to, Lisa explains she has vertigo from a car accident a few years ago. Meanwhile, Paul needs a urine sample from Ethan, but he refuses to pee. Suddenly he crashes and wets the bed, but when he wakes up he's terrified his mom will find out he peed himself. She doesn't handle stress well. When Ethan's dad David arrives at the hospital, Jordan explains to the parents that their son has a kidney infection. She then pulls David aside to ask him about his wife, and he explains Ethan has a bedwetting problem and his wife is a stress case about it. As Gwen and Kenny walk down the hall joking about how he's going to spend all his new cash on her, Gwen spots David pushing Lisa up against the wall. She races over and intervenes, but both David and Lisa claim she was dizzy and he was just making sure she didn't fall. Kenny can't corroborate Gwen's story, as he wasn't looking. Gwen is in serious trouble, and Topher sends her home. But Gwen doesn't go home - she goes to Ethan's room, where Jordan and Lisa find her. Lisa is livid, but Ethan convinces her to listen to Gwen. Ethan's been holding in his pee to protect his mother, because whenever he wet the bed, his dad would beat his mom. Jordan realizes Lisa's vertigo and fainting spell weren't from a car accident, but from domestic abuse. Lisa starts to cry, but Gwen comforts her, telling her she knows what she's going through - her ex-husband used to beat her, and she has the scars to prove it. Lisa is reluctant, but Gwen and Ethan convince her she can free herself from her situation. When David returns to Ethan's room, Gwen has the police waiting for him. TC is called over to a construction site where a scaffolding collapsed and landed on a worker named Carlos. While Carlos didn't make it, his friend Earl has his leg trapped under a fallen pipe, his ankle severely fractured. Walt is on parole - he was in jail for 16 years and just got out three months ago. TC tells him he may need surgery, but Walt refuses - he's been saving up to send his estranged son money for college to prove he's changed. He gets up to storm off, but his good ankle suddenly gives out on him. He can't feel anything and can't stand. TC asks if this has happened before, and he admits it did earlier in the day when he was messing around with Carlos. He stepped in front of Carlos' car as a joke, but when he tried to move out of the way, he couldn't move his leg. Carlos swerved to avoid him and he drove into the scaffolding. Walt is responsible for killing his best friend. A bit later, Walt tries to take some pain medication and can't swallow. TC's starting to figure out what's really going on... Walt has ALS. And he doesn't have much time. After seeing Walt's suffering, he decides to help the man who just wanted to get his life back on track. He hands him an envelope full of crazy patient money, which is enough to buy a life insurance policy with his son as the beneficiary. And Walt's official diagnosis is a dislocated ankle. TC plans on losing his ALS records so he can get the life insurance policy. Walt is beyond grateful. Ali's been moved up the transplant list, so looks like Topher will be heading to Dubai in the next week to do the surgery. TC offers to go with him, but Topher tells him Jordan will kill him. Later in the night, Topher Skypes with Ali and learns he's doing worse than he thought. He might not make it a week. Topher and TC try to call in some favors, but Smalls says he can get a doctor into Afghanistan to treat Ali... Topher. Drew says Topher can't be dropped into a combat zone - he's a doctor who was in the Army, not a soldier. Topher knows the risks and is willing to take them. But TC isn't willing to let Topher take them alone - he's going with his best friend. While Jordan puts on a happy face and tells TC she's okay with his decision, she's devastated that the father of her child is walking into a war zone, even for just a few days. As the shift comes to a close, Gwen finally has that heart-to-heart with Kenny he's so desperately wanted, revealing her painful history to him. They realize they're moving pretty fast, but neither of them is scared. Could this be the real deal?
