Sarah seems to be conquering her unease in the workplace with the help of a can of pepper spray in her pocket...at least until she maces a patient instead of calling for help. The incident leads to her suspension, but also a diagnosis for the man, who otherwise would not have received a full body MRI as a way to cover the hospitals liability. Daniel is MIA during this whole situation, but once he sees all the missed calls, he heads over to Sarah's apartment to comfort her.
Robin gets caught shoplifting at Connor's father's store. She's not arrested, but the incident leaves both of them shaken. Robin confronts Connor about his need to fix everything and everyone; his response is to reassert control of her treatment by accusing Sarah of not doing her job properly and insisting on a bevy of tests. Robin calls Daniel to let him know what's going on, and confesses that she's sick of being pitied by everybody. Daniel, always a psychiatrist, listens to what his daughter says and then asks her what she wants to do to reassert control of her life. He assists her in her plan to leave Chicago, though he does insist that she contact Connor when she's settled. When Connor arrives back at the apartment to find Robin cleared out, he accuses Daniel of being the instigator behind her departure because he never liked their relationship. When Daniel refuses to tell Connor where Robin went (at her request), Connor becomes even more upset and insists that he'll track her down and bring her back.

Stohl is disappointed that the TV isn't for the doctor's lounge.
