Scene shifts to Koch Hospital emergency room where EMTs are bringing Griffin in on a stretcher.
EMT: 30-something male recovered from the East River. Breathing is shallow. He’s barely conscious. We started him on O2 and saline. Heart rate is steady, BP 135 over 70.
ER NURSE: You’ve got to wait out here, Detective. We’ll find you later.
MICHAELA: I don’t know.
JARED: What is it?
MICHAELA: Yeah, it’s possible. He wouldn’t be the first. Somebody else came back.
JARED: That’s why you were up there? Why didn’t you tell me?
MICHAELA: I should have, but I’m still processing a lot of this. And there’s a lot going on between you and me. I-I just—
MICHAELA: Somebody just came back, though. Something is happening right now.
ER SECURITY: Detectives. Detectives, I could really use your help over here.
There is a large crowd of reporters gathered at the door.
JARED: I’ll take care of it.
SAANVI: Hey. Ambulance driver fell for the oxygen-chamber excuse?
MICHAELA: Yeah. Good call by you.
SAANVI: Okay, let’s see how close we can get to him.
MICHAELA: Hey. This doesn’t look very good.
SAANVI: It could’ve been a lot worse.
Ben and Zeke’s Entrance
JARED: Excuse me. Let them through, they’re with me.
BEN: So, what do we know? Has he said anything? Done anything?
JARED: I don’t think we’ve met.
BEN: Uh, uh, this is—
ZEKE: Word gets around.
BEN: Yeah. Sure.
Outside Treatment Room
MICHAELA: I just got the incident report. It says that the car went into the water Wednesday 11:06 a.m. 3 1/2 days ago.
SAANVI: And he got out tonight at what time?
MICHAELA: 9:14 p.m.
One of the ER staff knocks over a tray. Saanvi has a flashback of Alice hitting her in the face. She gasps.
MICHAELA: Hey. You okay?
SAANVI: I’m fine. I’m fine. I’m just I’m overwhelmed I think.
There have been all kinds of cute Easter eggs of the numbers 828 throughout the season but Saanvi’s realization that Griffin was underwater for 82 hours and 8 minutes is just one coincidence too many. It also proves she is extremely good at math, considering she was also struggling with some pretty severe PTSD at the time. Not gonna lie, we’re worried about the good doctor.
But we also want to know the significance of this sequence of numbers. Is there some “Lost”-level meaning behind them, or are these just symbolic numbers to signify important events or things that the returnees should pay attention to? We can’t see a connection to 828 in Zeke’s disappearance, but if the number themselves matter, does that mean this plane was chosen because of its flight number?
It must have some meaning or it wouldn’t keep coming back up. Here’s hoping the writers have come up with a good one, or the claims of being a cheap “Lost” knockoff will keep coming fast and furious.

Inside Treatment Room
ER DOCTOR: Three days submerged and no sign of fluid in his lungs?
NURSE: No respiratory impairment, no cardiac arrest, no hypoxia. It’s like he was never underwater.
GRIFFIN: Get them away! Get them away!
ER STAFF: Calm down!
GRIFFIN: No! No! No! No! Get them away from there! They’re gonna die! I can see it!
Michaela enters the room.
GRIFFIN: There’s an explosion! There’s a fire! There’s fire! I see smoke! There’s planes!
MICHAELA: An explosion? Can you tell me exactly where it is?
ER DOCTOR: He’s delusional.
MICHAELA: No, he’s not.
ER DOCTOR: Can you step out of my E.R., please?
GRIFFIN: People are dying! There’s children! People are screaming!
ER DOCTOR: Heart rate’s spiking. Push 10 milligrams of midazolam.
SAANVI: No, no, no! W-Wait! Wait! Do not sedate him!
ER STAFF: Hey! You two, out of here!
ER STAFF: Gotta go.
ER STAFF: Out, out.
