Alison, Casey and Luke wander around the hospital. She wishes Luke would tell Bob and Kim what Reid is doing. He walks over to the couple and tells them that Reid has gone to Bay City to try and get the heart. "I wouldn't be surprised if he came back here tonight with that new heart," Luke says. They all go in and tell Chris and Katie. Bob sends his wife off to get something to eat and then talks to Casey and Luke about how important it is not to give up hope. He wants Reid to work as co-chair with Chris. When Luke and Casey drift away, Margo and Tom arrive. Reluctantly, they walk over. Bob realizes something is wrong and they inform him that Reid was hit by a train. Bob sees Luke returning and tries to send him to the cafeteria but Reid is rushed by on a stretcher before he can leave. Bob keeps Luke back and tells him that it's just a matter of time before Reid dies. Luke thinks he's giving up and yells at him to help Reid. He runs off. John walks by and Bob informs him of the accident. John and Bob have no idea why any of this is happening.
Luke rushes down the hall to Reid's room. Reid opens his eyes. Luke begs him not to talk. The doctor asks for his wallet. Luke looks through it and finds the organ donor note on his license. "Chris," Reid gasps. Luke tells him he'll get better but Reid wants a lawyer, not a doctor. They call Tom in and Reid says he wants Luke to have his power of attorney. Luke begs him not give up. "We haven't had enough days. We're just getting started," he pleads with him. As he kisses him, Reid flatlines. John and Bob tell Luke that Reid is brain dead and there's nothing they can do. Luke asks them to leave him alone. Tom tells Bob about Reid's final request. John can't even consider that without a judge's approval. Luke is distraught and Bob tells him he knows this is all unfair. Luke is left alone with Reid. He blames himself for dragging him to Oakdale. He wishes he could save his life but the only thing he can do now is leave him and move on. "We finally agree on something Dr. Oliver. I wish it wasn't this," he says.
Bob and John kick Kim out of Chris' hospital room as they try to keep him alive. Reid rushes in to help and Kim is left weeping with Luke. Henry and Barbara arrive. Luke tips Henry off that Katie isn't there. Once Chris has stabilized, the doctors tell him he's in very bad shape. Chris refuses the treatment that John suggests and won't be hooked up to a machine. He insists on being treated like just another patient and not being bumped ahead in line for a transplant.
In the hospital hall, Reid tells Luke that Chris' heart is ready. Luke thinks that's incredible. Bob asks Alison to scrub in to help with the surgery. Kim notices she's wearing Nancy's ring so she and Casey break the news of their engagement. Bob and Kim hug her. As they drift away, John walks by on the phone. His smile drops. He turns to the family and informs them that the heart has now been claimed for someone else. Chris says he'll go back on the list as planned. He requests to speak to Reid alone. The doctors spar and Reid tries to be encouraging. Chris asks him to take care of Katie.
Katie goes down to Chris' room. Reid watches them through the window and then looks around the waiting room at all the other couples who would be affected by Chris' death. He heads out the door. Luke follows him. Reid tells him that he is going to Bay City to get the heart and bring it back. Luke tells him that he can't do this but Reid refuses to back down. Luke thinks he's doing this because he cares about Chris but Reid tells him that he's earned the right to throw his weight around. "I love you," he tells Luke, kissing him.
Reid is driving along, yelling at the doctor in Bay City, when his car stalls on the train tracks. He tries to get the car going but it won't move. As the train comes at him, he struggles with his seat belt but it's too late.
