    Maggie is in the lowest point of her cycle ,her most dangerous point.It takes all of Abby's strength to cope with such high maintenance however Maggie is somehow resistent to Abby's watchful eye.Ultimately resulting in a sucicide attempt via sleeping pills in a vast dosage. Luka,carter and Abby work on Maggie but her condition worsens and it's touch and go.With her mother in such a condition Abby's barrier is shattered with the final words of the show from her ethereal face, "she'll never be ok" revealing all.Just those few words were enough to represent the sheer heartbreak and torment she has been through all her life.With the fact being she wishes her mother could have a normal life more than anything. Performance's of extremely high quality from both Maura and the legend that is Sally field.
