The whole family gathers at the Flanagan house for breakfast, and everyone hovers over Veronica. Uncomfortable with all the attention, Veronica swears she's fine, and everyone toasts, celebrating the fact that it's over and done with. Later, Veronica finds herself alone, flashing back to the shooting. The doorbell rings. Veronica asked for a few days to herself, but Sands had to make sure she was okay. He loves her, and they're going to get through this together. He offers a ride to work, but Veronica wants to kiss, and before long they're ripping each other's clothes off and rushing upstairs for a quickie.
At work, Klowden interviews Veronica, who again claims she's fine. When Klowden warns that she could send Veronica home for a mandatory three-week leave, Veronica pleads to stay. Klowden knows how it feels. Her husband died on 9/11, and the hospital offered her six months sabbatical, but she couldn't stay away longer than 72 hours. Veronica admits that she's having trouble "not dwelling," but if she has a place to go and knows she's helping people, she thinks she can hold on. Teary-eyed, Klowden agrees to keep Veronica on the job.
