Rafe bursts in with Sami who are both surprised to see Will. Rafe demands to know where Gabi is. Rafe tries to rush into the room himself.

Nicole prepares to knock on Daniel's door but hears Daniel's phone ring inside. Daniel answers a call from Melanie. Daniel talks to her about her time there and how he couldn't be happier for her. Daniel says she doesn't want to hear about him because he's boring. Daniel admits things have been pretty intense but thinks the worst is over. Nicole listens in from the door and overhears Daniel say that he's moving on with his life. Nicole walks away causing Daniel to think he heard something so he checks the door but doesn't see anything and goes back in. Nicole walks by and exits through the elevator. Daniel is so happy Melanie called and starts getting tremors in his hand again. Daniel says he's been considering something and wanted her opinion on it.
Jennifer doesn't understand as she just saw Daniel yesterday and he was fine. Maggie responds that he is considering everything he's been through. Maggie says that's why she has to wonder why Jennifer is pressuring him about the clinical trials with his hands. Jennifer explains that she wasn't pressuring him but just wanted him to look into the research. Maggie brings up Daniel not wanting to get his hopes up and questions why Jennifer made him promise to still think about it. Jennifer thinks there's a risk in every treatment and it would be great if Daniel could have his surgical career back. Maggie is concerned with the timing and what the rush is because if it fails then it will be too much for Daniel. Maggie asks what's wrong with waiting until the drug is approved. Maggie suggests by then Daniel could be in a better place. Jennifer explains that she just wanted to help him since he's done so much for her. Maggie points out the chance it won't work and the risks are Daniel's to deal with not hers.
Rafe orders the door to be unlocked but she tells him that he's not authorized. She threatens to call security. Rafe informs her that he's a cop. She wants a warrant. Rafe threatens to break the door down. Sami tells Rafe to stop. Rafe questions Will as to how long he's been there. Will says a while. Rafe asks what that means. Will says the nurse suggested the procedure is already done. Rafe asks Will why he brought Gabi here.
The doctor tells Gabi that she'll be alright as she cries.
Daniel looks through the research some more and gets annoyed by the tremors as there's another knock at the door. Daniel answers and it's Jennifer. She asks if he has a minute. Daniel invites her in. Jennifer says she just came because she owes him an apology. Daniel asks what for. Jennifer says she pushed him into the clinical trial and should've let it go when he said no. Jennifer says it's Daniel's journey and not hers. Jennifer explains that she was trying to pay him back for all he's done for her but this isn't the way and she was way out of line. Jennifer apologizes. Daniel tells her not to apologize as he was going to call her to tell her he's going to do it. Daniel says he talked to Maggie and Melanie and couldn't stop thinking about what Jennifer said to him. Daniel declares Jennifer is right that he has got to do this no matter the results because he has to take the risk as it's who he is. Daniel thanks her for making him see that.
Eric looks at the earring Nicole left behind and puts it in a drawer in his desk then goes back to writing until Nicole enters. Eric tells her that he was just thinking about her and asks what's wrong. Nicole responds that she took his advice to go see Jennifer and apologized to her for what she did and everything she accused her of. Eric asks how it went. Nicole says Jennifer accepted her apology. Eric is proud of her since it took a lot of strength. Eric asks why she's still so down. Nicole adds that she didn't have the strength to face Daniel and say the same thing. Eric asks why not. Nicole says she heard him talking on the phone, telling his daughter that he was moving on with his life without her. Nicole cries that it was too much as Eric comforts her.
Nick turns on Gabi's computer and sees the abortion website.
Rafe continues questioning Will. Sami gets in between them and tries to stop Rafe. Rafe blames Will for bringing Gabi. Sami reveals that it's because of her since she asked Will to be there for Gabi. Sami says she asked Will to help her. Rafe asks if bringing her here is helping her. Will says it wasn't like that since she also told him something else. Rafe asks what he's talking about. Will shouts out that when she told him she was pregnant, she also told him. But before he can finish, Gabi comes out of the operating room crying. Will hugs her as Sami and Rafe look worried.
