At the hospital, Bill and Dr. Meade coach Katie to try and get her heart rate down. Katie tells Bill she's scared. Ice packs are brought to cool her down. Dr. Meade warns if her heart rate reaches 140 it will be very dangerous for her and the baby. The specialist arrives and Dr. Meade fills her in. Bill reassures Katie and apologizes for letting her down. She says, "Not now. It's okay." He says it's not - he loves her and can't lose her. The specialist tells Katie to stay calm and everything should be okay. Bill steps aside with Meade to find out what else can be done. He suggests now would be a good time to start praying. Bill heads to the chapel. Katie's blood pressure spikes and they prepare for an emergency c-section. Meanwhile, Bill tells God that this situation is beyond his control. He doesn't ask for help because he considers it a sign of weakness, but he can't fix this - and may even be responsible for creating it. He cries that he needs God to fix this - Katie is pure goodness and his son is pure innocence. He tells God to take him and leave them alone.
