After finding out Christian and Julia are Matt's biological parents, Sean is hell-bent to dissolve his partnerships with both, despite professional advice it would be utter disaster for the surgery. Matt and Sean remain tight as son and dad. The doctors still fly together for what is now likely to be their last case, a historical pro bono multi-disciplinary operation: the oldest Siamese twins ever separated, teenage sisters Rose and Raven Rosenberg, who are joined at the forehead. Neither dreamed of being alone, but it's necessary to give one sister chemotherapy. Having to share a dorm room makes the partners reminisce their past and complementarity. Julia's "I gave everything up for you" routine has lost all effect on Matt, who feels no connection with her and even returns to Ava, so she calls the 'fathers', but neither wants to make sonny study hard now.

Rose and Raven are conjoined twins. There have been many cases of surgeries separating twins. However, this episode has similarities to the 1991 separation of Gracie and Rosie Attard. The surgery resulted in the death of Rosie. See more

This would be an extremely elementary mistake, particularly given that the passage of time during the separation surgery, and the subsequent time of death, was shown so explicitly. The frequency of the clock's appearance in the second surgery, and its prominence in the shots, suggest that it is not an error but rather a visual metaphor suggesting that time stopped for both patients when one died.
