After repeatedly running into annoying recurring patient Jill Tracy, J.D. feels guilty when she dies of an apparent drug overdose and he didn't act on warning signs that she showed previously when meeting him. Carla and Elliot convince The Todd to admit to being gay, but contrary to what they had hoped, this does not change his personality for the better. Dr. Cox initially consoles J.D. but struggles to follow his own advice later on, when he finds out that Jill actually died of rabies and the infected organs went on to kill all the recipients.
