Frankie comforts a nervous Zoe in the lead up to her heart transplant, while also dealing with rebellious teen Kelly, who had a kidney transplant but has been lying about taking her medication.

Tabb takes on Samoan outlier patient Abe, but after connecting with him on a deep level, Tabb loses him and questions his own ability as a doctor.

Zoe goes in for her heart transplant. But tensions rise in the theatre as personal politics interfere. Lou calls stop, claiming to have seen Mitri miss a stitch, but he doesn't listen, closing Zoe up.

Frankie saves Kelly's life, and finally gets through to the frightened teenager: this second chance at life is precious, and neither of them can afford to forget that. In an intimate moment, Berger reveals he has his own health issues. As they share a bottle of wine, Frankie is faced with the question: will she be able to save the man who saved her?
