Dell returns to work worried about Betsey who was crying on her first day at school. He also deals with Kimmie, a patient with repeated bouts of false labor. An overwhelmed Dell yells at her for not being more patient, causing her to run away in tears. She returns to tell him that he was out of line and he agrees by saying he’s the one who needs to be more patient. Just then, Kimmie’s water breaks. Baby time has finally arrived!
Violet has been trying to remove the blood stain from the floor of her home, but none of the cleansers she uses seem to be making a difference. She chats with Cooper about the Pete situation while trying out yet another stain remover. Violet can’t believe Pete walked away even though she admits to pushing him away. Then she loses her cool and tosses the stain remover across the room. Violet grabs hold of the sledgehammer and goes to town on her hardwood floor. Cooper tries to tell her it’s going to get better. As she swings the hammer down, wood splinters and Violet wonders just when that will truly be.
