The episode begins with a patient being rushed in to the hospital; attempted suicide. Just then we see a big guy walk towards the patient; his approach is scary and suspicious. But just then he flashes his light in to the patient’s eye and declares that there is a bomb that went off in the patient’s head; it is no suicide. He orders that the patient should be put on ventilator. He calls for Dr. Wilson. Next, another doctor, Tina Ridgeway, tells an old coupe that Wilson would be performing a surgery on their daughter; Wilson is one of the elite neurosurgeons. Tina joins Wilson in a surgery. The surgery goes well and Wilson tells the old couple to get some rest and come back the following day. ..
