Two cases show potential futures for Christina on the Final Curtain episode of HAWTHORNE and she does her best to ensure the loneliest possibility comes true. The former Chief of Medicine, Dr. Arkin, returns to James River to die and old friend Gail helps him. A pregnant Afghan woman needs surgery but no one speaks Arabic and the husband has specific demands, so it takes trial, error, and finally a translator to get that done. Meanwhile Tom moves up his surgery and needs panic-stricken, MIA Christina to go with him but settles for Erin instead, shocking exactly no one, and Christina ends a very bad day by catching Camille and Marcus after they had obviously had sex. Oh, and in an effort to make Candy remotely relevant, she's pregnant.
