[All the action in this episode takes place in different areas of the hospital so I will write the different areas of the hospital in this update.]

(Emily and Caseyís room) Margo screams for Tom not to try anything against a crazy Rick Decker but its too late because Tom tries to jump Rick from behind and fails but all the excitement causes Tom to have trouble breathing normally. Rick holds a gun on Tom and demands that Margo give him a helicopter on the roof of the hospital and clear passage away from there with no cops or FBI. Margo asks Rick to let Tom have medical attention and she will consider his demands. Rick tells Margo that is done and explains that Tom is in cardiac distress, and needs oxygen what he would do is put him on a heart monitor and gives him an aspirin. Margo thinks Rick is a very funny man and refuses to give in to his demands. Rick tells Margo that if she doesnít give him what he wants everyone in the room is going to die. Paul screams for Margo to call the helicopter back or she will get everyone in the room killed. Chris tells Paul to shut up and Margo tells Paul that she wonít do anything until Tom gets the help that he needs. Meg who is also sick crawls slowly over to Tom and loosens his tie and shirt so he can get more oxygen. A weak Casey awakens and wonders what is wrong with Tom and Margo tells Casey to remain calm because everything will be fine. Rick tells Margo that the help Meg gave Tom is all the medical attention he is going to get and she must make her decision now.

Bob finds an unconscious Susan on the floor in the lab he tries to wake her up by calling her name and touching her face Susan awakens and Bob asks her what happened and a very weak Susan says Rick Decker before losing consciousness again.

(Casey and Emilyís room) Decker is tired of waiting and keeps pressuring Margo to make a decision now. Tom groans and Meg screams for Rick to remember he is a doctor and help Tom. Rick tells Meg that is up to Margo now and Paul tells Margo to call the helicopter and she tells him to shut up because he isnít in charge. Paul tells Margo she doesnít seem to be in charge of the situation either. Margo screams that she is cleaning up the mess that he made because he is the one who brought Decker back to Oakdale. Chris tells Margo to let Decker go because he has the antidote and he made enough for everyone so they donít need Decker anymore. Margo asks Chris if he is sure the antidote works and he tells her that he tested it on himself. Emilyís fever breaks and she awakens and screams no when she sees Rick. Casey sits up in bed a little and tries to calm Emily but Rick turns and points the gun at Casey telling Margo she must now choose between her son and her husband.

Rick cocks the gun and Aaron who has been hiding inside an air duct in the ceiling waiting for a chance to jump down on Decker makes his move. Decker sees him coming and shoots up at him and Aaron falls to the floor with a gunshot wound to the shoulder. Meg crawls to Aaron to try and help him but Decker screams for her to get back so she does what he tells her to do. Rick tells Margo he hopes that she knows he means business now. Rick tells Margo that Aaron was an unfortunate victim, which neither one of them expected and once again asks her to choose between Tom and Casey. Margo says that wonít be necessary because she knows what she must do.

(Susanís room) The nurse tells Bob that Susanís blood pressure is dropping and then she shows him track marks that Decker injected the poison directly into Susanís system. Bob tells Kim that they need the antidote Chris is working on right now. A second nurse arrives to inform Bob that the unconscious security guard they found has been revived. Bob asks the second nurse to page Chris immediately but she says that is impossible because they have a situation.

(Emilyís room) Margo calls the helicopter and tells the pilot that the air space has been cleared of everyone except him and he is to take Dr. Decker wherever he wants to go. Aaron manages to awaken an unconscious Alison who is on the floor next to him. Alison thins that Aaron is sick too and he tells her to look at him as he assures her that they are going to be okay. Rick congratulates Margo on making the right decision. Rick takes Alisonís arm and takes her with him for insurance. Emily screams at Decker to take her instead of Alison who is so weak she looks like a rag doll leaning against Rick. Rick declines the sweet offer by telling Emily he needs to take someone people actually care about then Emily cries and screams no Alison no. Rick gets outside the room and orders Margo to tell her men to stand down so she does as she is told and Rick heads for the elevator with Alison. Decker gets downstairs with Alison and walks out of the hospital. Meg rushes to help Aaron then Chris gets some help and tells them to get Aaron to the operating room quickly because he has a gun shot wound to the shoulder and he could be bleeding out. Bob walks by and wonders what happened Chris hands Bob the shot of the antidote and explains that it works and he made enough for everyone. Chris tells Bob to give it to everyone and also that Tom is having trouble with his heart. Chris tells Bob that Decker has Alison and he is going to save her. Meg tells Bob to give her the antidote first so he can go help Tom. Chris races up about 5 or 6 flights of stairs until he gets up to the roof. Decker tells the swat team and Chris to back off or he will shoot Alison. Decker hears police sirens and turns his head so Chris takes advantage of the distraction and ties to take the gun away from Rick. Rick and Chris struggle until Chris manages to punch Rick in the face and take the gun away from him. Once the gun falls to the ground Chris punches Decker until Decker falls to the ground. The police grab Decker and Chris takes Alison and carries he quickly into the hospital and into a room. Chris calls for a nurse and places Alison gently into bed. Chris asks the nurse to give him some of the antidote for Alison but the nurse explains that the antidote is gone because they had to give Susan a double dose because Rick injected the poison directly into her system. Chris tells Alison to hang in there because she is going to make it through this and then rushes to the lab to make some more of the antidote.

(Megís room) Meg tells Paul she already feels better and the antidote is working so she tries to get up and check on Aaron. Paul tells Meg she must rest and Aaron is in surgery and she canít do anything for him anyway. Meg wonders if she and Paul are okay and apologizes for trying to shoot him. Paul tells Meg he knew that she wasnít herself it was just the poison that was in her system. Paul jokes that he was surprised she had such bad aim since she was a farm girl. Paul also tells Meg that even when she was under the influence of the poison she really fought against shooting him. Paul tells Meg he loves her and they kiss for a few minutes Meg gets up again and insists on going to Aaronís room so that someone from the family will be there when he returns from surgery. Meg tells Paul that today she realized the importance of family and since Paul knows better then to argue he goes with Meg to Aaronís room.

(Tomís room) Margo tells Tom the stint in his heart collapsed when he fell but the doctor will replace it soon and he will be fine. Tom tells Margo she can yell at him because he is all drugged up. Margo tells Tom he shouldnít have tried to go after Decker and be a hero because he could have been seriously hurt. Tom tells Margo she was a hero and she tells Tom that he has always been her hero. Margo tells Tom that Casey should be fine soon because Chris made an antidote for everyone. Margo and Tom think they got very lucky and then they kiss each other.

(Casey and Emilyís room) Margo tells Chris that Tom will be fine he is in surgery now and they are replacing the stint in his heart.

Aaron tells her he feels fine and he doesnít have any idea why Alison feels strangely. Alison remembers she canít drink beer but Aaron tells her she can drink a beer because she can have anything she wants so Alison closes her eyes and says she wants a million dollars. Alison opens her eyes and smiles and says its still a beer. Aaron tells Alison its nice to see her smile and she should smile more often. Alison tells Aaron she will try but she hasnít had much to smile about lately. Aaron tells Alison she always plays it safe and Alison tells Aaron that the safe survive. Aaron tells Alison that the safe donít always survive and Alison is very confused. Emily and Susan are singing and try to persuade Alison to sing with them. Alison asks Emily and Susan why they are all there and they ask her why she goes there all the time. Alison tells them she goes there to escape from her life. Emily and Susan ask Alison to sing with them and she doesnít want to until Aaron tells her to quit playing it safe.
