Neal was looking forward to his parents’ visit. They were in town attending a conference and so he wanted to take them out to dinner before they returned home. However he never would have guessed that his first emergency patient of the night would have been a sign of an epidemic.

An older couple came in after the wife had been complaining about loss of breath. So Neal and his resident for the night, Pineda, took the case on. First they tried every conventional method they could think of to get the woman to breathe and when that couldn’t work they then tried to be unconventional. But no matter what they did, the woman was still suffering and ultimately they simply didn’t have it in them to save her life.

So Neal had to announce the time of death. And while Pineda was recovering from losing a patient, an influx of even more patients came running in.

The group of people had been all well-dressed like the couple they had seen so Neal checked one of their ID badges and he saw that they had all been at the same conference as his parents. Therefore he had to call his mother. The ER was quickly going into lockdown by then but Neal wanted to know if she had escaped what it looked like a pandemic in time and unfortunately she didn’t.

He called her cell and he heard “God Save the Queen” coming from the newly resurrected quarantined area. She and his father had been taken there but out of the two she was the only one suffering from the symptoms. Though no one knew which virus was the cause of it all.

After all it had been quite a large conference and there had been people from all over the world attending. Including some from South Korea where there was a current outbreak of Mers otherwise known as Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus. Mers attacks the breathing and often there are casualties. So Mers did look like a possibility for a while but that was ruled out in the end.

And as everyone outside of the quarantine were scrambling to find out what was wrong, Neal was caught on the inside trying to save a dozen patients with nothing other than nurses and a coulple of residents to back him up. So he was in a dire situation and there just seem like a way out if it. But sadly for him, his father decide to use what was happening against him.

Peter Hudson felt his wife would receive better care if he could transfer her to another hospital where she could looked at by the best. And naturally Neal didn’t agree with the older man on this one. He knew he couldn’t risk moving his mother and he felt like he was more than equipped to look after her himself. Yet Neal ended up losing a patient and when he turned around his father was just standing there judging him.

However Rorish couldn’t step in to relieve Neal. She had her own patient to look after outside of the quarantine zone so Mr. Gable had to come first. He was working at a construction site when he fell and was impaled on a spike but for some reason he had been suffering from amnesia as well.

So Angus and Mario were assigned to his case and it was their job to follow Gable when Rorish couldn’t. But the two men were so caught up in fighting each other that they missed all the signs. Like why Gable had amnesia on top of a burn mark surrounding the remaining spike. Therefore Gable nearly died on their table.

He had flat-lined and while they were trying to revive him that’s when it hit Angus. Their patient had been electrocuted and that’s probably what caused him to fall. So the guys did finally remember to put their patient before themselves and that carried over to emergency surgery. Where they then worked together to save Gable’s life alongside Rorish.

Thus Rorish was left proud of them. She complimented them on working together and Gable seemed to fix Angus and Mario’s broken relationship.

But back in the quarantine, Neal did what he should have done all along. He stood up to his dad and stopped second guessing himself. So once he was back in the right mind-frame, he saw what had been affecting the patients. It turned out to be Chlorine gas.

You wouldn’t think that was dangerous but it is and, in this case, everyone who had been near the pool had been affected by it. So all Neal had to do was compress the air that was trapped inside until he got out of his patient’s lungs. And just like that, they were ok.

Including his mother. So Neal saved her life and his father came to accept his son as being a great doctor even if he didn’t want to go into neurosurgery like his dad.
