Jo is still completely out of it, she has been working non-stop to try and get her mind off what’s been going on and it’s clear she hasn’t heard that DeLuca dropped the charges. Owen tells her she’s legally been working too much and has to go home and sleep or at the very least just leave the hospital for a few hours.
A patient wrapped in barbed wire is brought into the emergency room.

The patient’s neighbor explains to Weber that the woman and her husband were always extremely private but when she saw that Annie hadn’t gotten her morning paper she went to check. That’s when she found Annie wrapped in the wire.
Annie wakes up in the midst of the doctors cutting the razored wire off of her and freaks out. Owen has to physically restrain her and calm her down, hurting himself on the wire pretty badly.
As Meredith gets home, Karev is heading out to beg Bailey for his job back. Bailey agrees but makes Karev swear that nothing will ever happen again.

Eliza asks Bailey to not be quite as aggressive in her enforcement and stop suspending people because it just makes Eliza look worse.

Annie, the patient who was tangled in razor wire, had to get one of her legs amputated below the knee. Owen and Riggs explain it to her and learn that she was actually in the process of taking it down. She said her and her husband felt safe being able to protect themselves but when he died it felt more like a prison to her.
Karev finally apologizes to DeLuca and DeLuca is livid that it’s taken him this long. Karev admits he had so many chances but was just scared and didn’t know how DeLuca would react. DeLuca tells him not to worry about him but worry about Jo.
Avery and Maggie’s mom are waiting for her at home to break the news about the cancer but Maggie is too flustered and angry that her mom has seemingly barged in and tried to takeover. They aren’t able to come to a resolution so Maggie’s mom leaves without telling her what’s going on.
