April Green, who is now 18 weeks pregnant, collapses while at the clinic.
Jake hurries to find Dr. Dhuwalia. When Dr. Dhuwalia examines April, he
finds that she is hemorrhaging profusely and in need of immediate surgery.
April begs him to stop the contractions. Looking around, Dr. Dhuwalia
notices the clinic’s lack of medical equipment, qualified hospital
personnel, and the lack of sterile conditions. These unsanitary conditions
are what make him oppose operating on April. Upon knowing that April could
face possible death, Dr. Dhuwalia, agrees to do the surgery. Dr. Dhuwalia is
unable to stop the hemorrhaging and the baby is lost. Upon realizing that he
cannot save April either, Dr. Dhuwalia storms out of the operating room.

operating room. Dr. Dhuwalia’s actions give April a few more moments with
Eric and she manages to tell Eric that Tracey would be a good name for the
baby. April dies not knowing that the baby hadn’t made it either.

warns Russell that nothing had better happen to the 10 men or he’ll be the
first one that he comes looking for. Russell nods that he knows and tells
Jake that Heather knew that they were coming to Jericho, but she didn’t want
to accompany them.
