Helena tells her tale that Irina escaped the compound, nearly drowned and had lost a lot of memory, so she (Helena) told her what was necessary.

Again, Patrick's anguished words of blame point at Jason. Anna continues that Robin can't be here for people she loves (family and patients) and that he (Patrick) has to take over, including the patients. Anna decides to let Patrick sit on those words; she stands to take her cell phone to find a place to call "The Agency" to see if they have located Robert (Robin's father).
