One is unconscious and is fingered as the attacker by the other young man and his girlfriend. The attacked girl asks her savior what happened but is unsatisfied when he refuses to explain.

The docs notice that they're bloody. They figure out that the unconscious boy is the one that actually saved her. The girlfriend believes the story because she remembers her boyfriend looking at Joy at the party. The doctors struggle with how they missed certain signs and were quick to believe the first boy's story and condemn the second. Joy ends up sitting by her savior's bedside until he awakes.
