Outside of Kevin’s room, Will tells Natalie that he thinks it is possible Kevin doesn’t have PANDAS and has been misdiagnosed. He thinks that many are quick to diagnosis patients with PANDAS now. Depending on what he has been put on he could have a superinfection.

Back in the room, April sees the patient’s jacket. There is a white powder on it. They leave the room quickly. They think it is fentanyl.
