Scott is overwhelmed, but agrees to take them all in.

She turns him down with a bit of sarcasm and leaves while telling him that when he wants to be treated to let her know. Alone in the room, the suspect pulls a razor blade from his mouth while signaling to a man outside of his hospital room.

He knows what they are talking about. He wants to be a doctor. He pleads with them not to let her die. She is all he has. His father isn’t a good guy. They promise him.

At the front desk Jordan and the team talk about a game plan for the patients. The deportation officer overhears. He is mad that TC told him that they have the measles. TC should have let them all stay there and be deported back to their own countries with their diseases. He demands they get on the bus. Jordan tells him no. He will die and so will they.

Jordan gets a call from Cain. He tells her he needs to go back to Mexico. There is an emergency. He quits over the phone. She wants to talk about this. He hangs up and grabs handfuls of money out a safe, stuffing it into a bag along with a gun and passports.

Shannon checks out the young boy. He’s good. He gets upset. They will deport him. Shannon tells him that she will pretend he is sick so he is safe. ICE gives Shannon a hard time when she gets out of the room. Scott confronts the man and tells him that they won’t be releasing anyone who is sick anytime soon.

Paul talks to Dr. A who apologizes for what he said earlier. Paul explains that id he isnt wearing his scrubs he gets mistaken for the janitor. Dr. A tells him how his family thinks he is a traitor for working with ICE. But he started out when it was about deporting the bad guys not families.

The suspect is being wheeled into a room. Officers keep watch. He flirts with Jordan who is very annoyed.

TC shows up while the suspect mouths off. He is there to help out Jordan. She tells him how Cain quit. They bring the suspect up to CT. In the room, the suspect slashes one of the officers when he goes to un-cuff him. The suspect grabs his gun, fires and disappears into the ceiling.

Jordan reports that she has called security to get a map of all the vents. TC is mad that this happened on his watch. TC suggests that Drew and he join SWAT. Jordan announces to the floor that the suspect is on the 4th floor. The vents aren’t connected.

Shannon checks on the young boy Angel. He is passed out in a hospital bed after taking pills. They pump his stomach.  Dr. A asks Paul about Angel. He blames himself. He was the one who arrested them and brought them in. Paul asks what he is going to do to fix it. He explains that he can’t do anything. It’s too late.

The SWAT team sees blood dripping from a vent. They need to bring the suspect in alive. They all aim their guys to the ceiling. They turn on their cameras. They see him in the vents. The head of the SWAT teams wants to go in 5 minutes, but TC thinks it’s a bad idea. He leaves.

Rene, the head of SWAT goes in. She gets shot. TC goes up in the ceiling to rescue her. Jordan and Drew lower her down. TC doesn’t leave, but goes after the suspect.

TC gets his knife ready. He turns the corner of the vent and lunges at the suspect who is too strong. He hits TC with the gun several times; throwing him back and making him bleed. They start to fight again as the SWAT team cuts the ceiling. They both fall. Jordon runs to TC.
