    Jason Rolls the Dice.

    Thursday, January 17 2008

    Back in the ER, Mayor Floyd, Dr. Russell and Edward quarrel about how to handle the situation while Joe sits with Sam and explains how things got so bad for him. Jason takes it all in as Joe and Sam reminisce about an antique car that used to sit on his lot.

    Dr. Ford immediately orders Angela to be taken to County General, but Cassius speaks up and asks why it always has to be about money to him. Jason rushes to Liz's curtain area and finds Lucky, Jake and Liz holding Jake and marveling over how much better he is doing. Epiphany tries to get back to work but breaks down in tears. "Oh it hurts!" she sobs as Cassius sits next to her. Down the hall, Sam finds Lucky and says that she'd like to go home, but Lucky says that he wants to make sure things are okay with Liz and Jake for a while.

    Patrick tells Nikolas about the blood tests that they ran on him (after they provoked a rage), and Nikolas doesn't appreciate being a test animal. Angry, he walks over to Dr. Ford and says that if he sends Angela to County he'll withdraw every dime he's ever donated to the hospital. Dr. Ford quickly signs her papers to let her stay. Nadine tells Nik that Emily would be pleased, but she would also want him to take care of himself. Nikolas turns to Patrick and says that he'll admit himself and wait for those blood results.

    Inside, Leo finishes up with Liz and she comes around. Lucky, dressed as a doctor, approaches her and tells her that the building is surrounded and he's ready to start sneaking people out. Liz begs him to take Jake first. In the lobby, Joe senses that something is wrong with Angela. Jason tells him that he needs to be with his wife and brokers a deal with Dr. Ford that could bring a peaceful end to the situation. Just then, Nikolas cruises into the area and Joe threatens to blow everyone up. "Go ahead, I've got nothing to lose," Nik says. Then he pushes Joe and everything goes black.

    In the ER, Elizabeth has just realized that she has literally come from a fire to a frying pan (by virtue of a hospital being held hostage by a bomber)! Joe tells her that her baby doesn't deserve any more care than his unborn one does. Leo urges Joe to let them help both patients and Epiphany asks Liz to hand Jake over to her. Sam is able to convince Joe to let Jake get treatment and Elizabeth thanks her. That's when Liz notices that she suffered a cut during the fire and is taken for treatment.

    Down in the ER, Dr. Ford calls for a hospital lock down. Joe sits with Jason and says that he wanted the baby to be a girl. As they talk about their respective hopes and dreams, Joe's thumb is on the detonator. Over at the nurses' desk, Edward, Monica, Dr. Ford and Sam discuss how to proceed. Joe notices it and jumps up. He grabs Monica and tells Jason that it's time to see how Jason feels about his mother.

    Dr. Ford informs Ric that Alexis had a straight-forward appendectomy and is recovering just fine, but he needs surgery to clean up the procedure done at Wyndemere. After he leaves, Ric asks Skye why she stuck by his side last night. "I danced with the one who brung me?" she jokes and they both laugh. Then, she walks out into the hallway and finds Alexis. She says that Ric needs to talk to her. Alexis decides to go see him. She tells him that Molly wants to bring him dinner. Ric laughs because they both know it'll be peas. He goes on to say that he couldn't help but to think about what a rotten father Trevor has been and that he wants to break the cycle for Molly. "I want to make peace, and it starts with you and me." He tells Alexis that she is a great mother and it's time that he treats her with respect. She cries and says that she doesn't know what to do with all of this. He tells her to just accept it. She says that she's not perfect, but for their daughter's sake she'll try not to hate him anymore. They both smile.
