Silas says that Franco is the only blood relative that hasn't been tested yet. He could be a match.
At the Drake's, Sabrina's surprised to hear that Franco is Patrick's patient. She thought that the seizure was caused by he beating he received.

She tells him that Luke went looking for Jerry Jacks, because he has radiation poisoning too. "What are the odds?" says Scotty, sarcastically.
