The man has an aortic aneurysm which caused his back pain. LIm says aneurysms are hard to catch. Shaun won't let go of how Asher should have felt it. Lim tries to reassure Asher. Shaun says he would have caught it if he double checked. Lim tells him to stop. She says she didn't tell Shaun to abdicate and that if a first-year wants him to double check he should always do it. 

The memory loss is temporary. Claire says they are running tests. Both Brendand and Zane are there. Zane says it was exciting. Brendan says he took care of her when she was sick. Zane says it was about being with her. Brendan says she stuck by him when he needed her and it's hard to imagine being without her. Neither can Zane.

Park's phone rings and it's Margaritaville ringtone. Morgan teases him.

Shaun can't sleep and is reading books about being a supervisor. Lea suggests he watch TED Talks. Also a date night. Shaun doesn't see why they should have a date night when they live together. Lea thinks it'll be fun. 

Claire tells Ellie that they can remove the fat leaking from the cyst but she could have permanent memory loss. But if they don't operate she could have brain damage.

Shaun is going back after their date. He won't deviate from the schedule. Lea, in a rare show of unselfishness, insists he go and cancels their date.

Asher has an idea to extend the graft. Olivia says his idea won't work but suggests an alternative material for the rebuild. Asher stares at her. Shaun eventually says they have the material: the patient's veins.

Park walks in on a half undressed Morgan and bothers her about her things from her exes. (Yeah that's appropriate...)

Ahser explains the procedure to his patient. The patient is nervous that he is going to die. Asher can't give him specific odds. The patient just wants to know how bad it is. Asher says it's bad. The patient thanks him and tells him he's going to be an incredible doctor. Asher tells him he screwed up the first exam.The man asks him to pray. Asher says he's not a believer anymore.

Brendan comes back. Ellie realizes she was in love with Zane but doesn't remember it. But it just reminded her of Brendan and how they met, how he took care of her, etc. She can't stop thinking about how much she hurt him. She doesn't know if he can forgive her. Zane watches them hold hands. He nods at the doctors and goes.

Shaun goes to see Glassman. He is afraid his communication issues will cause more patients to die. Glassman says his autism has nothing to do with it.
