The Universe Next Door
As Alice – the true touchstone and rock of the Quartermaine family—lies prone on a hospital gurney before them, they listen with mounting trepidation as Monica explains: Alice is getting worse, and the situation will require extraordinary measures for her to survive. Reeling, they grope for answers as Alice, focused and stalwart as ever, is hellbent on corralling Michael and warning him of Tracy’s machinations, come hell or high water. Alice may be on a gurney, but this is a minor obstacle is but a fly on rhinoceros skin to The Dominator – and means big trouble for Edward’s little girl. However – said little girl also watched her own father crawl across the floor in agony while she brandished his heart medication. Granted, she thought he was faking (he wasn’t), but it doesn’t diminish the unholy lengths to which Tracy will go in single-minded combat. This sets the stage for a major confrontation in the IV jungle.
Levi is determined that the information about his residency visa not be divulged to the general public and pesky INS officials. Thus, despite having viewed first hand Nathan’s version of ‘one armed paper hanger’, he rather recklessly warns the well-maintained – and sole breadwinning member of the group – not to go blabbing to anyone. Which Nathan takes with the requisite amount of serious weight and respect. Meanwhile, Maxie finds herself in conflict once again as she runs interference, finding her increasingly strong feelings for Nathan—as well as his obvious disdain for men’s fashion – to be very confusing and upsetting...and rather titillating.
Athos, Porthos, and Aramis are keeping busy waiting for D’Artagnan to show up; Brad, on the loose while Britt plots her triumphal march back to Wyndemere, stumbles onto a close moment between his ex-boyfriend. Er, both of them. This results in an epic, apocalyptic argument between Felix and Brad, one of such pith and moment that it morphs into…less pith and more moment. Ahem.
Mother Nature’s Son
After an attempt to confess everything to Patrick, Rafe’s seizure has rendered him unconscious and in need of life-saving surgery. While Molly tried to remember details through the haze of a concussion, Rafe is rushed to the OR to be operated on – by none other than the enraged neurosurgeon whose emotional state makes Silas openly question his suitability to perform the procedure, which leads to blunt animosity between the two physicians. But it has to be Patrick; no other surgeon is available or could get to GH in time to save Rafe’s life.
Grudgingly, Patrick heads to the OR, as Silas and Sam wait anxiously. Given the fact Patrick’s last patient died, they might have reason to worry. Silas blames himself for Rafe’s downward spiral to Sam – who later asks Patrick about certain events that transpired.
Nina, frustrated at the annoying propensity of the universe to hinder her carefully-formed strategies, has a wee hissy before redirecting her efforts once again to a new scheme. However, just as she’s begun playing the fiddle again, she’s stopped in her tracks by a shocking surprise.
