106.20 SYNOPSIS: —>

Script & Commentary

Scene shifts to the hospital. Grace is watching Saanvi do work on a computer.

GRACE: I don’t suppose you know where my husband is?

SAANVI: Um, sorry, I don’t.

GRACE: You were on the plane. What do you think of all this? Is it tied to the flight?

SAANVI: I honestly don’t know what to think. On the one hand, my medical training tells me that there has to be an explanation for all of this. But then on the other, we know that the human body is it’s capable of far more than we can currently comprehend.

GRACE: So you think we shouldn’t give him the antibiotics?

SAANVI: I just know that we fought like hell to get him into the trial, and it would be a shame to derail that if antibiotics aren’t the answer. I mean, there’s so much here we’re only beginning to understand.

GRACE: You sound just like Ben. Look, I get it. I know there are a million possible scenarios in the land of what if,  but this is my son.

SAANVI: Mm-hmm, yeah.

GRACE: Not some scientific curiosity. Now’s not the time for Ben to be chasing wild theories. Or for you to be encouraging him.

SAANVI: I can only imagine how overwhelming all of this must be.
