Liz, Cameron, and Scott continue to wait impatiently for the procedure to end. Liz says she has hope it will work.
Peter's trying to get to the goon he hired when he gets waylaid by Laura. Laura says she has a meeting about overcrowding at Pentonville. She adds there will be early releases. (Hhhmmmm let me guess, Sam and maybe Nelle if Chloe Lanier wants to come back full time? Please Chloe, come back full time!!) She wants Peter to cover it in The Invader, but he blows her off and leaves.
The goon steps into the operating room. He and Andre fight over the gun and Andre gets knocked out. Peter arrives, grabs the gun, removes the silencer, and shoots the goon.
Anna arrives at the hospital for her appointment just as the gunshot goes off. Everyone panics. Anna pulls her gun and heads to the OR with Liz to see what happened. Scott stays with Cameron and tries to calm him down.
Andre recovers. The goon was shot by Peter. Peter tells them that he found the goon with a gun standing over Andre, fought for the gun, and shot the goon.
Anna returns to let Cameron and Scott know that everything is fine, but someone tried to kill Andre again. She tells them Franco was unharmed.
Andre tells Liz the program is finished running, but they won't know the results until Franco wakes up. Liz begs Franco to come back to her.
