Episode Summary

EDIT
Just Duet
AIRED:
Sarah's patient Patricia Kingsley is close to dying from cancer when Sarah discovers she has a husband, Hugo. Sarah locates Hugo to convince him to be at his wife's deathbed and soon discovers why he has stayed away; Hugo is horribly disfigured (looking a lot like the Elephant Man). Roger is happily surprised when Eleanor unexpectedly reappears. She is getting sicker, though, and Tom Florin says she needs to have the tumor removed right away. To Roger's great relief, Eleanor agrees to the operation; she wants to live so she can be with him. Evan finds Patrick's behavior towards a patient, opera singer Francesca Lucchesi, inappropriate. Francesca has problems with her voice, and Patrick (who seems to have a crush on her) suggests to Evan that she may have tuberculosis like the character she is to play in the LA Opera. Evan gets her to take a test to find out, and Francesca worries. Everyone looks strangely at Hugo but he gets to be with his wife as she dies. Afterwards, he collapses due to the disease that has disfigured him. He's slowly dying and refuses to get treatment. Sarah reluctantly allows Hugo to go back home. Without his wife, he longer wants to live, and he dies that night. Sarah is left sad, yet jealous of the strong love Hugo shared with his wife. Complications occur during Eleanor's surgery but her life is saved. However, Tom can't promise that she won't have permanent brain damage. Evan tells Francesca that she doesn't have tuberculosis and she almost gets sad; she has been looking for an excuse to not sing as she was only forced by her parents to do opera. Evan encourages her to bet on her own music, so she goes to an audition and does well. Patrick is soon by her side with red roses. Eleanor seems to be out of the woods for now and Roger wants her to marry him right now. Eleanor agrees and they are married outside the hospital.moreless
