William visits Fife to say he’s not proceeding with the experimental treatment for his illness. He’s going away to make amends with his estranged daughter before he dies. He asks Fife to cover for him so that Naomi can focus solely on her daughter. He’s doing this because he loves her. William realizes that Fife also loves Naomi and gives him some parting advice. He says, “Be a better man than you have been.”
When Fife arrives at the hospital, he suggests using hypothermia to save both Maya and the baby. For this procedure to be successful, Amelia will have to work fast. It’s a long shot, but one Sam thinks is worth taking. He asks Addison to just stand with him for a minute before he heads back to operate on the drunk driver. He still has no idea it’s the person who hurt Maya. When Sam does finally figure things out, Pete lies to him by saying this is a different drunk. It’s the only way he could be sure Sam would save the guy’s life.
