  • Out in the corridor, Murdoch and Ogden inquire further as her sister said that Jane had been suffering from melancholy.

He had advised her to rest and spend less time on her volunteer work.
  • Dr. Gettler is at the bedside when Nurse Sullivan and Dr. Ogden respond to Miss Cooper having respiratory difficulty; She has contracted a bacterial infection during brain surgery. He knows there is no treatment and tells Bella Cooper, "there is nothing to be done."
