  • The man who hit Peter Rickman is brought to the Kingdom.

    Peter Rickman has awakened from his coma, but falls in and out of consciousness. David Hooman, the man who hit Peter and left him, falls off his roof onto his van while, most likely, under the influence of drugs, alcohol or both. He goes through similar circumstances that Peter went through on his way to the hospital. This is maybe seen as retribution for his past actions. Mrs. Druse begins a seance with the terminal patients to try and put the little girl, Mary, to rest. Dr. Stegman, however, after seeing her MRI results, interrupts the seance and orders Dr. Hook to discharge her. I find it very disturbing that Dr. Abelson is able to watch Stegman bawl out Mrs. Druse with a smile on her face. It's pretty funny how Mrs. Druse is the one to tell Dr. Hook that his "fly" is unzipped. The scene where Nat Rickman is distracted but dosen't tell him is quite humorous. She must obviously have a huge crush on Stegman. Ironically, Hooman ends up in the same room as Peter. Then, for some reason, Antubis kills Hooman. I'm not sure why. Finally, Dr. Hook sees Mary on top of the elevator. At least he dosen't dismiss it like others would.
