Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Weaver (Laura Innes) is off suspension and back on the job. Greene's (Anthony Edwards) father (John Cullum), suffering from terminal cancer, is checked into the ER with pneumonia. Carter (Noah Wyle) continues having difficulty coming to grips with the attack that injured him and killed Lucy. Abby (Maura Tierney) is caught in the middle of a bitter domestic dispute that may have fatal results for a young leukemia victim in dire need of a bone marrow transplant. And while Carol (Julianna Margulies) draws closer to Kovac (Goran Visnjic), Benton's sister Jackie (Khandi Alexander) doesn't think much of the romance between Benton (Eriq La Salle) and Cleo (Michael Michele).
