Reid hopes his heart will be a match for Chris’. Luke kisses Reid. Reid falls back and is announced brain dead. Luckily Reid’s heart is a match and John and Alison prepare to give Chris Reid’s heart. Everyone’s on edge, praying that Reid’s sacrifice won’t have been for naught. Luke and Katie console each other.  Much to Luke’s relief, he learns that Chris has woken up and Reid’s heart appears to be functioning normally.

At the EOD, Noah finds bereft Luke at the pond. Katie, Margo, Bob and Kim are thrilled Chris is on the mend. When Chris asks to see Reid, they all falter. John urges them to keep Reid’s death a secret from Chris, until he’s better and can handle the stress. Chris suspicions are aroused when he overhears a board member discussing the hospitals loss. At the EOD, he asks Katie point blank, whose heart he has.  Katie relents and tells Chris whose heart he has. Chris is angry at Reid and almost feels responsible for his death.  Katie urges him to understand that these were Reid’s wishes, he very much wanted to help and Chris would do better to look forward to the rest of his life. Lucinda tries to reconnect with Lily, but she’s shot down. John finds her drowning her sorrows at the Lakeview bar. Lucinda confides in John about her woes. John, fed up with her sulking, tells her she has no one to blame but herself. Later he finds her at Worldwide, scheming once again. John realizes he must shake some sense into her. John hears from Lucinda that she’s trying yet again to protect her business interests instead of attempting to forge some peace with Lily.  Lucinda explains that it’s who she is, and John says it’s not who she has to be.  At EOD, Lucinda brings flowers to Lily’s.

Lily and Holden try to help Luke cope with his loss and the burden of figuring out what to do with Reid’s remains. They discover Reid has an uncle living in Midwood, Brooklyn. They jet there only to find that Uncle Angus wants nothing to do with his nephew.  Lily and Holden continue their visit with Uncle Angus.  They tell him about Luke and Reid’s relationship, how Luke brought out the more human side of Reid.  Luke was given durable power of attorney but as next of kin, Uncle Angus would have to give further permission to let Reid’s remains go where they’re intended to go.  Uncle Angus is upset to hear of Reid’s passing, expresses his frustration by knocking over the chess set.  But Lily picks it up and Uncle Angus shows and tells them about a black knight of Reid’s he’s kept with him for years, that he wants Luke to have.  Uncle Angus signs the paperwork.
