Rebecca is surprised to hear about Ethan's parentage and Ethan wonders if Nik can expect someone, a twin no less, to replace the love of his life. Nikolas thanks Rebecca for the game and leaves.

Patrick tells Matt he shouldn’t have let him do the surgery alone, but Matt insists the surgery was textbook.
