Neil reports to Aaron. He tells him that Shaun’s patient has DIC when your body clots and hemorrhages at the same time. Shaun never has issues in the OR. He wants to know what is going on with him.

Neil and the team rush the teen into surgery when his heart rate plummets. Meanwhile, Shaun and Aaron are at the carousel.

He always thought that when he died he would remember that moment and she would be next to him still. Shaun gets a page and gets off the carousel.
Neil and the team rule out the bacterial infection since he isn’t reacting to antibiotics. Neil asks Shaun what he thinks. He tells them he squeezed the artery during surgery. Now he needs to leave to go make a bowel movement. He runs to Aaron’s office. He thinks he has a solution. Aaron tells him that there is no hope and that he needs to let it go. Shaun becomes calm and tells him that they can do a biopsy through his nose. Shaun tells him that he cannot die too.
The team tries to figure out how to cover for Shaun. Shaun comes in. He tells them he threw up. Neil asks him to come back to the team. They brainstorm again. Shaun thinks they need to work on the teen’s leg from the inside out. If they cut into him he will die.
In surgery, they place a balloon in the teen’s leg. He pulls through. Neil is taking them all out.
Shaun goes to see Aaron. He notices a band aid. He had the biopsy. Aaron could survive. He needs surgery and chemo. Shaun is thrilled. He hugs Aaron. Together they head to the Andrews’ office to confess that Shaun made a mistake in surgery.
