Dusty tells Emily that she has always trusted his instincts before and the only reason she doesn’t trust them now is because she is in deep denial about her boyfriend Chris. Emily is surprised to find Chris in the lab with the lights turned off and he tells her he just needed a quiet place to look over his father’s medical records and make sure there is nothing in them that could make people think Dusty’s allegations are true. Emily wonders if Chris ran a toxicology screen on his father but Chris says there was no need to do that because he knew what medicine his father was taking. Chris gets upset and leaves the lab and heads into the hallway with Emily chasing after him.
