Standoff: Life Support
A teenager comes into an operating room while a cocky surgeon is operating on a guy's heart (while listening to "Dr. Feelgood" on the iPod at full volume - do they really do that in ORs?). He has brought his very ill sister along (she has lung cancer), and he wants a certain doctor to help her. Of course, that doctor isn't around (he's in a cabin in the woods and can't be reached easily), so the other doc decides to do what any doctor would do in this situation: grab the gun from the kid. It doesn't work, and this just ticks off the kid more. But he lets the doc leave so he can tell the FBI what's going on. The guy with the heart problem is going to die if he's not helped soon.
There's another complication: a big naked guy is on a stretcher, and he tries to get out and unknowingly tips off the kid that the FBI is just outside the door with high-powered guns (is this OR on the very top floor of the building?). So the kid panics and, doing a MacGyver, pushes all the oxygen tanks against the door, shoots them, and blows up the entrance.
At this point, unless I missed it, the fire just sorta goes out, because no one seems to be worried about a big fireball and explosion. The kid says that if his sister dies, he's going to kill everyone and then kill himself.
The episode, well, continues from there. Gun, blah, phone calls, blah, angry rapport, guy with the heart problem is released but his blood goes everywhere when the FBI tries to lift the bed out of the elevater, blah blah blah. Emily reaches the doc in the cabin and he's unhelpful to say the least. But Emily finally gets through to him and he comes to the hospital. The ep ends with Matt going to the kid and talking to him face to face. At first I thought this show was going to throw in a shocking curveball by having one of the FBI guys shoot the kid before Matt could make it up. But that doesn't happen. The kid gives up. A sad pop song plays as he's put in handcuffs. The doc tells the kid his sister will die in a few months.
We also find out why Matt has been acting all pissy. Ever since walking into the hospital, he's having flashbacks to something that happened in a hospital during his childhood. Something that makes him have flashbacks and get angry at this current hostage negotiation and threaten the safety of the hostages. Something that's filmed at feet level, all out of focus and wavy-like, the younger Matt running through a hospital. His mom, a cop, died when he was 12, so he identifies with the kid.
