Nic gets to the hospital and finds Jessie in a room taking care of sick patients it seems Chastain now does drug trials with Conrad.  Jessie took part in the drug trial to make some money. It was a double blind test and some patience got the drugs and others got a placebo.

A Doctor walks in and asks what Conrad and Nic are doing there.  Jessie gets up to leave with her friend John and the doctor threatens him he will get not get his money.  John does not care he gets up and collapses.  Conrad calls for emergency care.

Nic comes in and tells Dr. Bell she wants the drug trials, to STOP now!  Dr. Bell tells the Trial Doctor that members of the trial are severely ill.  The doctor tells Dr. Bell to get everyone to stand down or no money for Chastain.  Dr. Bell decides to let the trials go on.  Nic tells Dr. Bell a participant is her sister.

Devon talks to Okafor about his fiance wanted to go to San Francisco. Julia comes over to see Devon to see how her numbers are looking on his new device.

Dr. Bell has the results from the tests.  Conrad thinks it is a massive infection.  They decide to start a steroid treatment on John and Jessie and hope it will solve the problem.

Ernie’s wife has to give permission for him to get the bad hip removed and a new one put in.  His wife is upset because the operation could kill him, but then again it could make him better.  She tells them she cannot bear to lose him but she will sign the consent form if Okafor and Dr. Austin are in the operating room.

Jesse is having trouble breathing and it appears the steroids are not working.  Conrad tells her there are no guarantees.  Conrad tells Nic if she has something to say to Jesse now would be the time.  Nic tells Jesse to FIGHT and that she loves her.

Ernie’s operation is going on.  When they open up they find complications pieces of the device have broken off.

Someone starts to code, it is John.  John who was only 30 years, he did not make it.

Dr. Bell tells the trial Doctor there will be an investigation and the Trial doctor could be facing manslaughter charges.  The doctor is shocked.  The trial Doctor wants the steroids to stop and he wants to up the antibiotics because he says they are treating septic.  Conrad wants the steroids to continue.  Conrad says John did not survive because he was the first person to get the drugs.  Dr. Bell agrees they should continue with steroids and he will deal with the trial Doctor.
