AIRED:
Tim brings in three-year-old Zach Field to the hospital. Zach is slowly dying form Canavans and thanks to bureaucracy, the parents have been waiting for him to get treatment for over 1 1/2 years. Suzanne worries when Felicity's behavior shows signs of a compulsive disorder. She goes to Roger with her worries. Zach's only hope for survival is gene therapy but this is still in a trying phase and the board won't go ahead with it. Tim finds out that Roger has a friend on the gene therapy board, Dr. Megan Todd. Tim convinces Megan to give the OK for Zach to get treatment but the board votes her down. Tim the alienates Megan by calling her a coward. Roger snaps at Tim as the hospital has now lost a valuable asset in Megan. Kelly is upset after the shooting at Nick's school. She wants to move far away but Evan doesn't want to leave the practice. Kelly announces she'll take the children and go anyway. Evan promises to fight her on this. Roger confronts Felicity with having a compulsive disorder but she claims to have it all under control. In a last attempt to save Zach, Tim takes Zach and his parents with him to the gene therapy board to make them realize what they're doing. Evan decides to let Kelly move with the kids after he sees the consequences their fighting has on the kids. Felicity realizes she doesn't control her disorder as good as she thought and asks Roger for help. Megan tells Tim the board has allowed Zach the treatment. Roger realizes he's been acting very busy and cool so he apologizes to Felicity and Tim.moreless
