Dr. Chambers says he was nine years old when his father died, he always brought him a mug with hot chocolate. He always tried to fit in, but it didn’t work, he gave up on relationships, everything, except the one thing he is good at. People tolerate him because he saves lives, without that, why would anyone care about him. Shaun says he cares. Time for surgery, Shaun takes the mug out of Dr. Chambers’ hand.
Shaun is home, Lea is making dinner. She asks him if he has thought anymore. He says he made a list, Lea did too. He says he thinks he would be a good father, but he can’t know for sure. She thinks he would make a good dad. He tells her that she was right, it is complicated, but he wants her to be happy. She says there are so many reasons to do this, and so many doubts, she is scared. She says if they are both having doubts, maybe now is not the right time. He says ok. Shaun holds her hand.
