Lucinda offers to endow fellowship in memory of Reid and Luke says that Reid would hate the idea but he wants a fellowship in Reid’s name so that he will be remembered. Luke tells Lucinda that she and Reid were very similar and she tells Luke that he wouldn’t say that if he knew what she had done. Luke asks Lucinda what she has done now.

Lucinda leaves and Noah sits next to Luke and Luke tells him that Lucinda is fighting with Lily again. Luke tells Noah that he still can’t believe Reid is dead and he was so calm about the end of his life it was as if his life didn’t matter to him. Noah reminds Luke that Reid’s life was very important and in the end he saved a lot of lives by donating his organs.
