In surgery, Morgan suggests that they look for a small blood clot.

Claire talks to Shaun who is upset that Chambers is angry at him. Also he is worried that his child has no friends and is picked on? He is worried he can't be a good father. Claire says Shaun has grown and changed and will be a great father.

In surgery, Morgan makes a risky decision. Lim and Park concur. They find and remove the clot. Park thanks Morgan and says they did good together. Morgan still wants him to move out tonight.

Shaun goes to see Chambers who is rude as usual. Shaun informs Chambers that he changed and Chambers can too. Chambers says he made up his mind about the surgery. Shaun goes on about a plastic scalpel Steve had given him. He has fixed Chambers' cup. He walks away. Chambers suddenly says his father died when he was nine and his father used to bring him mugs for hot chocolate. He was the only one who understood him. He couldn't fit in and gave up. He is too old to change now. He feels his only value is as a surgeon who can save lives.

Shaun brings Chambers' mug into the OR while they operate on him.

Later, he comes home, where Lea is making spaghetti. Lea asks him if he has thought any more about...? Shaun says yes. He made a list.  Lea has made one too. Shaun's list starts with he thinks he would be a good father but isn't sure. Lea says him being a great dad is on her list too. Shaun agrees that this is complicated. But he wants her to be happy.
