Deacon grins as she approaches with her stethoscope. She places it on his chest and tells him his heartrate is elevating. Deacon wonders what she’s doing. She’s celebrating her favorite holiday. Deacon isn’t surprised at this. Sheila muses that she can’t wait to celebrate with her family… though that will have to wait until next year. Deacon reminds her she’ll go to prison if she even thinks about resurfacing. Sheila counters that he shouldn’t underestimate her; she’s like a cat with nine lives. Deacon deadpans, “Don’t you mean nine toes?” Sheila concedes that her back is against the wall right now but history proves she always finds a way out. “You just watch me.”
