With Dr. Weaver no longer a candidate for chief of ER, Dr. Anspaugh takes on the role of interim ER chief. Dr. Amanda Lee is a promising candidate for the chief position and meets with the hospital committee. Dr. Corday, suffering from exhaustion and sleep deprivation as she takes on her new role as Dr. Benton's intern, makes a potentially deadly mistake. In his continuing search for a solution to his son's deafness, Benton meets with Dr. Kotlowitz whose approach is aggressive in the use of cochlear implants. Dr. Greene's resistance when the paramedics attempt an initiation prank creates an awkward tension between them.
