Another surgeon was scheduled but came down with the stomach flu. Conrad rushes to see them. In the meantime, Bell accidentally lights the patient on fire in the OR in the middle of the surgery after using the cauterizing tool. Conrad comes running in to help put it out. The sprinklers go off. Bell continues to instruct everyone around him while he stands there with arms up.
Claire calls Nic in to speak with a risk management specialist. They need to put her on leave because Lily’s family is suing the hospital.

Claire runs out of the room and finds Bell and Conrad wheeling the patient out. She tells Bell she is going to watch the cameras to see what happened.

Nic and Conrad meet in a hospital closet. Nic tells him she has been out on leave. He comforts her.
Claire calls Mina in. She tells Claire that the fire was caused because the oxygen under the patient’s mask was pooling. It was not Bell’s fault.

Hunter sits on the risk board. She tells them she thinks Nic set the potassium pump on the wrong setting and that is the only explanation for Lily’s death.
Conrad’s patient starts to code. He has to cut into the side of his neck to take pressure off of the trachea so he can breathe.
Nic tells Devon they will not blame her for Lily’s death without a fight. She tries to teach Devon how to draw blood on her but he has trouble. She decides she is going to go out on the floor, she doesn’t care. Devon tells her to be careful. She makes her rounds and is caught by another colleague.
Feldman tells Devon to stop taking off from the ER to help Conrad. He needs to get a marble out of a little girl’s nose.
