Ethan is stunned when hospital administrators reveal the ED's budget is in a poor state, and as he struggle to balance the books, he begins to compromise care for his patients. Determined to do what is best for those in his care, he makes an unpopular decision. Meanwhile, Glen becomes uncomfortable with the idea that his daughter doesn't share his surname, and decides the best course of action is to propose to Robyn.
