Claire, Park and Melendez treat an elderly patient, Sunny, with an estranged biological daughter Grace and a surrogate daughter Teresa. Sunny's mechanical heart is malfunctioning; with her condition deteriorating, the doctors are forced to operate rather than send Sunny to her doctor in China; the surgery is a success. Afterwards, with support from Park and Teresa, Sunny and Grace begin mending their relationship. At the same time, Lim, Morgan and Shaun treat an autistic patient, Lana, whose brain aneurysm requires a surgery, during which Lana must be awake and talking so the doctors can gauge her brain function. Shaun and Morgan attempt to recruit Lana's roommate Javi, with whom she has a perfunctory sexual relationship. Javi, also autistic, overcomes his sensitivity to light to be present in the operating room, making the surgery a success; Javi admits his love for Lana. At the same time, Shaun struggles with Lea having a boyfriend. Shaun and Lea acknowledge they make each others' lives better; he agrees to give her needed privacy with Jake. Shaun's overbearing attempts to help an ill Glassman lead to a fight. Following Lea's advice, Shaun acts as a supportive friend rather than as a doctor, which Glassman appreciates.
