Zach: I love you, too. Don't wait up.
Erica: Who was that?
Erica: Are you sure about that?
Zach: Sure about what?
Erica: Well, "Don't wait up for me." That's not the way you usually end a phone call with someone in prison.
Woman on answering machine: Mr. Slater, it's Warden Griggs at the state penitentiary. There was an incident tonight in your wife's cellblock. I'm afraid she's been injured -- a stab wound. Because of her prior heart condition, we're transporting her to pine valley hospital.
Kendall: Liza, it's Kendall. I need your help.
Ryan: Wait, what room did Jake say they moved her to?
Annie: 310? 312? I don't remember. Ryan, what did Jake mean when he said "a while"? When's Emma gonna wake up?
Ryan: Just try to relax, Annie. Jake said that the surgery went very, very well, ok?
Annie: But she's -- she's gonna be ok, right? I mean, our baby's gonna be ok. What? What -- what is it?
Ryan: I'm just thinking about -- thinking about Kendall.
Annie: You're thinking about Kendall right now?
Ryan: I'm thinking about when they brought her in after the tornado, Annie. It was three months.
Annie: Three months?
Ryan: Before she woke up.
Adam: As if I'd be stupid enough to fall in love with a woman who killed my brother?
Scott: You're not.
Adam: Oh. You've certainly changed your tune. Why so certain?
Scott: Because I know now Annie didn't kill my dad.
Adam: Are you saying you know who did?
Erica: So who was that really on the phone, Zach?
Zach: I told you who it was. It was Kendall.
Erica: Not Liza Colby?
Zach: No, not Liza. "And don't wait up" -- it's, uh, it's an inside joke.
Erica: It's not a very funny one.
Zach: It is if you're in on it.
Erica: I see. Well, how is she?
Zach: She --
Jesse: You got a minute?
Zach: Yeah. How is Emma?
Erica: Emma just came out of surgery. Jake is in with Ryan.
Zach: That's got to be hard on Ryan. Maybe he could use your support right now.
Erica: Sure. Yes. Good idea.
Zach: What's going on?
Jesse: We have a problem with Kendall.
Zach: I just talked to her.
Jesse: The other Kendall.
Scott: What makes you think I know who killed my father?
Adam: You just poured yourself one.
Scott: Oh. Yeah. This is for you.
Adam: No, I don't want a drink. Why are you suddenly wanting to defend Annie again? Did she say something?
Scott: I just keep going back over that night, what we know about it. And when you think about it, it's really not all that suspicious when you think about everything Annie has done since. I -- I mean it is, but not in the way that a -- that a guilty person would cover for herself. You know what? Forget I said anything.
Adam: I can't. Not now.
Scott: Ok. I'm just saying that what may look suspicious when you think that a person is guilty may look, I don't know, protective when you think that they're innocent.
Scott: Like Annie might be covering for someone, because she thinks it's the right thing to do.
Adam: How is covering for Stuart's killer the right thing to do?
Scott: Maybe because, um, it's someone that she cares about, someone that she thinks didn't mean to do it. There were a lot of people in the house that night.
Adam: And Annie thinks she knows who did it.
Scott: I'm not saying anything.
Adam: Leave it.
Scott: Yeah, hello?
Annie: Scott, it's me.
Adam: Annie? How's Emma?
Annie: Adam, she won't wake up. Jake said the surgery worked, but it could be days or weeks. I mean, I prayed for more time with her any way I could get it, but not like this. I didn't mean like this.
Adam: It's not your fault, sweetheart.
Annie: But I'm the one who's supposed to protect her and -- and keep her safe. I mean, I could lose her, Adam. That can't happen.
Adam: No, you won't let it happen.
Annie: You're right. You're right. I need to be strong for Emma and be there for her no matter -- no matter how long it takes.
Adam: I know who killed Stuart.
[Monitoring machines beep]
Erica: Surgery was a success?
Ryan: I'll believe that when she opens her eyes.
Erica: How are you holding up?
Ryan: I just keep thinking about all the nights I'd check in on her and she's just sleeping there. Just trying to tell myself that that's all this is, that she's gonna wake up any second and she's gonna ask for pancakes for breakfast.
Erica: She could wake up before.
Ryan: Yeah. Or she could just keep sleeping for God knows how long.
Erica: It's scary, I know, especially when it's your daughter.
Ryan: Oh, God, Erica, I'm sorry. You know exactly what I'm going through.
Erica: Emma's gonna wake up. And just think how happy she's gonna be when the first person she sees is her very handsome daddy watching over her.
Ryan: If I'd been watching over her before, she wouldn't have fallen down those stairs. I was so busy dealing with Annie, you know?
Erica: As well you should. You are a wonderful father, Ryan. Emma knows how much you love her.
Ryan: I just want her to wake up so I can tell her again. I just want you to wake up. Please, Princess, just open your eyes, ok? Just open your beautiful eyes.
Liza: As soon as I get off the phone with you, I get a call from the warden saying that my client was shanked. Have you spoken to Zach?
Kendall: No, no, not yet. Well, that's probably him right now.
Liza: Ok, but if it's not, you're supposed to be in the hospital. Hello?
Liza: Hold on a second. You're on speaker.
Kendall: Zach, what are we gonna do? The minute that woman goes to the hospital, they'll know that I'm not in prison.
Liza: Ok, just calm down. Just calm down. Just let me talk, ok?
Kendall: The second that they see this woman, they'll know that I'm not in prison.
Zach: Not if we make the switch.
Kendall: How? I don't understand. What, I beat my double to the hospital?
Liza: What, and then I'm supposed to stab her?
Zach: No one's getting stabbed. But you got to get down here.
Liza: Ok, now, this is absolutely crazy.
Kendall: No. Ok, you know what? I'm on my way.
Zach: Not without Liza. It's too dangerous. Liza?
Liza: Yeah, ok, I'm in this.
Adam: I'll take that drink now.
Scott: So on the phone just now, Annie told you Emma killed my dad?
Adam: She didn't have to say it. I kind of put it together myself. I sometimes wonder if Ryan was being absolutely honest when he said that Annie accused Emma. But I guess she was telling the truth.
Scott: And her word's enough for you?
Adam: Well, that, and what you said.
Scott: What do you mean?
Adam: About Annie's odd behavior. Um, trying to defend those that she really loves. What Annie said about Emma -- well, that pretty well cinches it. The pieces fit.
Scott: You don't think that Emma should be punished?
Adam: Oh, God, no. No. That little girl suffered too much already. No, it was a terrible accident. She saw a gun. She picked it up. It went off. And poor Annie. She's been -- been through hell lately. Everybody in town thinks she killed my brother. But when you're protecting your only family, no sacrifice is too great.
Scott: Yeah. Well, what say we go over to the hospital, huh, and check on Annie and Emma.
Adam: Yeah, I'll -- I'll come along later.
Scott: I don't want to leave you here like this.
Adam: I'll -- I'll be there later. I just -- I -- I have a lot to think about. And I'd really like some time alone, thanks.
Annie: Any change?
Annie: Has Jake been back into see her? Hi. Hi, my sweetheart. Mommy's here. Daddy, too.
Ryan: Annie --
Annie: I want her to know that I'm here, Ryan.
Nurse: Dr. Martin will be right in. And, Ms. Kane, the ambulance is less than ten minutes out.
Nurse: Oh, I, um, I thought you knew. Your daughter Kendall is being brought in with a stab wound.
Liza: Colby, I -- I just didn't expect to leave them alone so long. No, Stuart is not used to Bailey yet. Could you please go over there? Yeah, ok. I promise I'll call you as soon as I'm done. Thanks. Ok, you know what? I'm gonna take Ian over to the neighbor's. Come here.
Liza: Yeah, hi. I'll get him settled. You take my car keys, and I'll meet you there, ok? Come on.
Kendall: Whoa. Thanks. Liza, is everything ok?
Liza: I just got to get home to Stuart.
Kendall: Then take Ian with you. It's ok. I'll get to the hospital on my own.
Liza: No. But Zach said --
Kendall: No, no. Listen to me, Liza, it'll save time. Trust me, I'll be ok.
Liza: How are you gonna get into the hospital?
Kendall: Zach will find a way.
Zach: Emergency exit on the east wing. How much longer before the ambulance gets here?
Jesse: Ambulance is gonna be here in a few minutes.
Zach: How many minutes?
Jesse: Let's pray for traffic.
Zach: It'll work.
Jesse: It better work, or we're screwed. Right now we are short two Kendalls --
Jesse and Zach: And a doctor.
Zach: Who's on the take around here?
Jesse: "Who's on the take?" Zach, this is a hospital.
Zach: I know where we are, Jesse. All right, so we need enough supplies to just tide us over until we can switch her out with Kendall, get her to a real hospital, or to somebody who knows what they're doing.
Jesse: Yeah, well, who has that kind of time?
Zach: We don't have another choice.
Jesse: Yeah, we do. I can put my marriage on the line and ask my wife.
Ryan: Do you have any news on Kendall Slater, by any chance? Any updates?
Nurse: Oh. No.
Ryan: Nothing at all?
Nurse: No. I'm sorry.
Annie: Hi. I just want you to know I'm so sorry. Remember how we talk about how accidents happen? Well, I feel like what happened to you tonight is my fault. Every minute I get to spend with you is so special, and I should spend those minutes giving you hugs and kisses, and not fighting with your dad. Oh, you've already been through so much these past few months and seen so many scary things. You don't need that. But as much as I want you to open those pretty, pretty eyes of yours, I understand if you need to sleep. If you need to sleep, you just rest, baby. Forget all of this -- this craziness. Stay inside that beautiful head of yours where all of the beautiful dreams are. I know what it's like to want to go away, to just go away and hide inside yourself for a while. But just know that Mommy will be here waiting for you when you wake up, ok, when you're ready.
Angie: Hey, baby.
Angie: What are you doing here?
Jesse: I --
Angie: Is it Kendall? Did you hear?
Jesse: Uh, yeah. Yeah, I -- I did.
Jesse: Um, ok. There's, uh, this thing that has been going on, and I'm kind of involved. Um --
Angie: I don't like the sound of this already.
Jesse: Yeah, you're not gonna like the sound of it much later either, but you can get mad then.
Angie: What did you do?
Liza: Yes. So, Ian, do you know what a caper movie is? Yeah, probably not. Well, there is usually a heist. But there's always a crime, see, and a lot of people get roped into these very messy plans. And they usually end up in jail or, in this case, in a secret room, where there's a wall for a door. And --
Erica: Where's Rachael? What are you doing here?
Liza: Erica --
Erica: Hi, sweetheart. Hi. Yeah. You want to go see your mommy? I know you have missed her so much. Come on, honey.
Liza: Uh, Erica, what are you doing?
Erica: Uh, Kendall had a little incident at the prison, and she wasn't hurt seriously. But because of her heart, they're gonna bring her to the hospital here.
Liza: Yeah, well, I really don't think that you should be taking Ian there.
Erica: I think I know exactly what my daughter needs.
Liza: Yeah, Zach left me in charge of Ian.
Erica: I don't care about that. I'm gonna talk to Zach about that later.
Liza: Uh, Erica, I really think that you should -- oh, my God.
Nurse: Clear room 3?
Angie: Uh, no. I've got this.
Jesse: Chief Hubbard. Did anybody else see this patient?
Guard: No, sir.
Angie: All right, let's go.
David: Is that Kendall Slater? I'll take it from here.
Angie: I've got this, David. Kendall just needs some stitches.
David: This patient is a heart transplant recipient, Doctor. The prison sent her here with the expressed purpose of being treated by her cardiologist.
Angie: Probably before they realized that the wound was superficial.
Zach: Is that my wife?
Angie: Listen, he's just gonna interfere with the treatment. Would you please handle this? Come on, let's go.
Zach: Hey, where you going? Let me see -- what's --
David: All right, all right, just back off, Zach.
Zach: Back off from what?
Jesse: Let the man do his job.
Zach: What's going on here? What kind of hospital are you running? What about this prison, people getting stabbed? Are you in charge of that?
David: Do I have to call security?
Zach: Call whoever you want! I'd like to see my wife!
Erica: What is going on? Is Kendall here yet?
Zach: Yeah, she's here. They won't let me see her.
Jesse: Angie said that the wound is superficial.
Erica: I know that. And Kendall's gonna want to see Ian right away. Come on, honey.
David: Erica, hold on for a second.
Liza: Uh, should we stop them?
Jesse: Let them go. The double's in the other wing.
Liza: Well, Kendall should be here by now.
Zach: What happened?
Liza: Long story.
Zach: Well, she's here now.
Scott: Hey. How's Emma?
Ryan: No change. Hey, come here for a second. Will you do me a favor and just keep an eye on Annie? I don't want her to be in there alone with Emma, ok? I'm standing there waiting for an update on Kendall, but I got nothing.
Ryan: She was stabbed in prison. She was just brought in here. It's not supposed to be anything serious, but, I mean, still. You know?
Scott: Yeah. Ahem.
Annie: Hi, Scott.
Scott: Hey. How are you?
Ryan: She's fine. She's totally fine. Emma could just stay asleep, for all she cares.
Annie: How can you say that?
Ryan: Because I just heard you say that to her. That's why.
Annie: Her body has been through a trauma, Ryan. I was just saying maybe she needs some rest.
Ryan: You sure that's what it is? Not the fact that if she stays unconscious, then she won't be able to tell anybody what really happened with Stuart?
Scott: Ok, Ryan, just don't. Everything that Annie does is in Emma's best interest.
Ryan: Are -- do you have something on him? Because --
Scott: Leave her alone, ok?
Ryan: What happened to you?
Scott: Look at her. You see how bad she's hurting, hmm? You two must've loved each other once. I know the both of you love that little girl in there.
Erica: I don't understand why you insisted on leaving Ian in the playroom.
Zach: I wanted to see how Kendall was feeling first.
David: Too much too soon?
Zach: You agree, right?
David: That's one approach.
Erica: So when can we see her?
David: I'm gonna check --
Zach: Angie will let us know.
David: Excuse me.
Kendall: Did Zach see you?
Jesse: Yeah. He knows you're in.
Liza: Ok, so how long do you think that Zach can hold off Erica and David before we make the switch?
Jesse: Did either one of you read the papers this morning?
Jesse: Somewhere in the Midwest this young construction worker, he got a splinter on the job. I mean, the splinter was really in there. The guy decides to stop at the hospital/clinic on his way home. Well, he goes in with a splinter, and he leaves in a body bag. Yeah, infection sets in. It was just one of those freak things.
Liza: All right, this is taking way too long.
Kendall: Oh, my God. This woman could die.
Jesse: We were getting worried. Is she all right?
Angie: She lost some blood, but she'll be fine. I sedated her. Clear cut, wasn't deep.
Jesse: What about you? Are you all right?
Angie: No, I am not all right!
Jesse: Baby, I got a man right outside the door.
Angie: So then why don't you just give him the night off?
Jesse: Because I can't: Prison protocol.
Angie: Oh, yeah. We sure as hell don't want to break protocol.
Jesse: Angie -- ok, you --
Angie: You know what? I -- I can't even talk to you about this right now. I have other patients.
Jesse: Wait, wait, wait, wait. Is it safe to move her? Baby, I'm sorry about all of this.
Angie: Uh-huh. You told me you were sorry the first time that you asked me to compromise myself as a doctor. I believed you then.
Jesse: Angela, you just saved this woman's life. And you helped our friends keep their families together.
Angie: Don't, Jesse.
Jesse: I'm just saying -- I'm just trying -- I'm sorry.
Angie: It's safe to move her.
Jesse: Thank you.
Jesse: Go get me a cup of coffee.
Officer: I can't leave the prisoner, Chief.
Jesse: No, I'm here. You can go. Get yourself one, too. Ok, buddy?
Nurse: Dr. Hayward, you're needed downstairs.
Liza: I know. It's uncanny, huh?
Zach: Is she gonna be ok?
Jesse: She lost some blood, but yeah.
Erica: David? David, do you know where Kendall is? I mean, I thought it would be so easy to find her: Just look for the door with a police officer standing outside.
David: Yeah, no kidding. She's in here. Why don't we go see her together?
Angie: Whoa. You can't go in there.
Adam: Oh. You're here.
Stuart: Well, not really.
Adam: I miss you. But, Stuart, why didn't you tell us who killed you?
Stuart: You already knew. You just -- you just had to go back and get all the pieces and put them together like a puzzle. I -- I never liked puzzles.
Adam: I still don't. Huh.
Stuart: Yeah. Your heart knew that it wasn't Kendall. You didn't listen.
Adam: I keep remembering more of that night: The -- you, your body hitting the ground, and the horror on that little girl's face.
Stuart: Yeah. You -- you still had all the pieces.
Adam: But then why didn't we get some relief at knowing that? We didn't get any comfort from knowing the truth, and I don't feel a thing. Something's missing.
Stuart: I'm still no good at puzzles.
David: Who is chief of staff around here? Erica, do you know?
Erica: I want to see my daughter.
Angie: So does her husband. He's in with her now. And given the ordeal that Kendall has been through, the circumstances that she's been living under, I believe keeping her visitors --
Erica: Visitors? I'm her mother.
David: I'm not a visitor. I'm her doctor.
Angie: And her doctors to a minimum is in my patient's best interest. Now, please. Will you give Zach and Kendall some alone time?
David: Then why did I see Jesse walk in there?
Angie: Because Jesse has to file a police report, ask Kendall some questions about the stabbing. Now, I will get him out of there as soon as he gets what he needs, and then you can go in and see Kendall.
Erica: I'm going to the playroom right now, and I am going to get Ian, and I'm going to bring him back here in a minute.
Angie: Don't you have other patients to check on?
David: Yes, I do.
Zach: Is there a problem?
Angie: I told you to leave them alone.
Jesse: I'm trying to conduct an investigation here.
David: How are you feeling, Kendall?
Kendall: Good. I'm a little tired.
Zach: Maybe you guys could excuse us. We don't have that much time before we have to get back to prison.
Jesse: Ok, well, I think I have enough here to file my report. Kendall, it's good to see you. You're looking good. We miss you around here. Well, not here at the hospital, but --
Kendall: I know. Thank you. I --
Zach: Jesse, I want her moved somewhere else if she's a target.
Jesse: I'm on it, Zach.
David: Well, clearly you're in good hands with the Hubbards.
Jesse: Uh, hey, look...
Jesse: You might want to -- never mind.
Erica: Look who it is!
Erica: Look who it is, honey.
Kendall: Hi, Mom. Oh, I wasn't expecting to see you guys.
Erica: I've been so worried about you. And I'm so, so happy to see you. And so is this little guy. Say, "Hi, Mommy."
Kendall: Hi, sweetie. Hi. You know what, Mom? Maybe you can set him up over there. I'm sure there's a crib they bring in from Pediatrics.
Erica: Well, don't you want to hold him first?
Kendall: Well, I -- I can't really hold him right now where the stitches are.
Erica: Oh. Right, right. Of course.
Ryan: I know you can hear me. Maybe your -- maybe your mom's right. Maybe you're just sleeping, you know, having -- having sweet dreams. But I need you to fight in there, too, ok? I need you to fight to come back to us. And when you do, when you wake up, you're not gonna have to fight anymore. You're not gonna need to be scared or -- you're not gonna need to listen to grownups fight with each other. Just please -- just please wake up, and I will make sure you are safe always.
Nurse: Mr. Lavery asked about Mrs. Slater. She's stable.
Annie: Thanks. I'll tell him.
Annie: What? I will.
Scott: Annie --
Annie: What, Scott? I don't need anybody else giving me a hard time, ok? Emma needs Ryan here right now, not working on project Kendall. There are enough people falling all over themselves to save her right about now.
Scott: Mm-hmm. And what are we gonna do about that?
Annie: About Kendall?
Annie: Nothing. Scott, there's nothing we can do. Did you talk to Adam?
Annie: So how much does he know?
Adam: Annie, I'm so sorry.
Annie: I -- I wanted to tell you for so long.
Adam: I can understand why it would be difficult for you. For you, and also for the last person on earth that would want to hurt Stuart.
Adam: Sweet little Emma, a child, killed my brother. And now her life is hanging in the balance.
Ryan: Daddy's still here, and I'm not gonna let anybody hurt you. Nobody's gonna hurt you ever again.
David: Is that Kendall's file? I'd like to see it, please.
Angie: I told you -- heart rate's normal, blood pressure good, no sign of infection. You know, it's like you want to find something wrong.
David: Yes. Exactly. Come. You know, either I'm the greatest cardiovascular surgeon in the world or Kendall is nothing short of a superhero. This heart rate of hers? Absolutely phenomenal. And to see her just now -- the color on her face? Fantastic after losing so much blood.
Angie: There wasn't that much blood.
David: Any blood loss could be fatal for someone with her heart condition. I should've been handling her case.
Angie: David, it was nothing: A superficial stab wound. I could've had a nurse stitch her up in ten minutes. Kendall certainly didn't need renown cardiologist David Hayward.
David: World-renowned, thank you. But more important, I guess you just don't want someone like me interfering in your prison break.
Jesse: Standing guard. Sorry -- protocol.
Erica: Jesse, when you were speaking to Kendall, did you notice anything just a little off?
Jesse: Well, sure. The woman's been in prison, away from her husband, from her kids, from her mother. Then she gets stabbed, she passes out, and wakes up dazed, confused, hopped up on drugs. Come on, you've been in jail yourself, Erica. You know how it is. It messes with your head.
Erica: But the way she was with Ian just now -- I mean, I know that Kendall adores her boys. After all this time, I just didn't expect this.
Jesse: What do you mean?
Erica: Kendall hardly reacted to Ian. I mean, she -- she behaved as if she'd just seen him maybe a couple of hours ago. After all this time, she didn't act like it had been a couple of months.
Kendall: Zach, if I just blew it because I forgot to pretend for one second, after everything everyone's done for us --
Zach: Hey, hey, hey, shh. It makes sense you wouldn't have the strength to pick up your kid after what you went through -- what everyone thinks you went through.
Kendall: Right. Ok, well, what about making the switch back?
Zach: Gonna go just as smoothly.
Kendall: This went smooth?
Zach: Yeah, it did. It was a team effort. We're gonna keep going. And before this woman goes back to prison, I'm gonna make sure she gets a nice raise. And you're gonna have to hide for a little while longer. But only until we can prove that Annie killed Stuart. It's gonna happen. I promise. What, you don't believe me?
Kendall: I just -- I have a really bad feeling about this. I mean, I want everything to work out, Zach. But -- but wanting it and saying it, it's not enough. I feel like everything's falling apart.
Zach: You love me?
Kendall: More than anything.
Zach: Well, I love you. Trust in that.
Kendall: I do.
Liza: You ok?
Kendall Double: I was knifed in the shower. Must be nice -- no rats here. Comfortable bed, TV. Not a rat in sight. You couldn't see them in prison either, but you could hear them in the walls trying to claw their way out. I'm sure Kendall has no trouble falling asleep here.
Liza: Uh, listen, if you want to rest up, we've got a little bit of time before I have to make the switch back.
Woman: "Switch back"? I hope Kendall likes rats. There's no way I'm going back to prison.
