At the hospital, Sonny informs Rex that Holly’s accident was wiped out from Will’s memory. Will says little by little, he started to remember it again. Rex says that’s typical of this tumor and radiation. Will panics. He couldn’t handle losing his memory again. Rex doesn’t think that’ll happen. He goes and Kayla walks in. She explains that the pathologist couldn’t classify the sub-type tumor since he’d never seen it before. It’s unique because the tissues contain traces of a rare chemical compound – Rolf’s serum. They can’t say definitively if the serum caused the tumor or not but it’s possible that the tumor will be resistant to treatment. Will and Sonny are staggered and find it ironic since he took the drug to regain his memory.
