Hayden goes to see Finn while he's still in jail and is ready to help him with his fatal illness, illegally, when nobody is there. She has his needle and he grabs it ready to administer it himself. Right then, Tracy appears, seems surprised to see Hayden there and happily informs Finn there may be good news involving the death of Dr. Mayes. It happened the exact same way using the exact same drug that was used to attempt to kill Lucas. She clarifies that obviously the doctor's family may not be happy that he died. However, she encourages Finn to realize, the fact that he was locked up in there while this happened, clears him of the suspicions that got him suspending from the hospital staff. He reminds her the reason he is in jail is completely unrelated to that. Yet she tells him she can find a lawyer and get him out of there and acquitted of charges very quickly. Tracy leaves and when Hayden is alone with Finn, she asks him what he plans to do regarding needing someone to supply his drugs for him. He assures her that he will not ask her to get involved in that knowing how dangerous that is.
After Dr. Mayes has died, it's been ruled a homicide. He was found to have been injected with the same drug that was used to attempt to kill Lucas Jones. And so Nathan is having to investigate and ask questions of all medical staff who were on the floor the night in question. He meets with Elizabeth alone in a room because she was the one who found the body. He asks if she can describe any suspicious circumstances.

Until Franco showed up.

In response to that, she asks how he turned out to be so unlike the others (not evil.).

While she hears that, she remembers being alone with Dillon kissing. He informs her that things will be different from now on. He admits that he cannot party or do many of the things that most guys his age can do.
