Storyline

The Sloans fear for Mark's life after the escape of Sam Rosser, who vowed revenge since Mark got him convicted for a brutal postal bombing murder. Norman also has a fight to the death against a hospital take-over by Vaughn Medical Services, which appeals to most of the board but would be detrimental to patient care. Mark gets one day delay to receive a frightening report about a San Diego hospital Vaughn took over. Kurt Vaughn hisses he won't be stopped. Med student Dr. Brian Haywood asked Jessie to intercede with Mark about his residency, but screws up once too often by resuscitating a DNR-patient without reading her chart. Brian refuses Jesse's help to get off amphetamines. Mark is too late to get to Norman who accepted a package delivered for Mark by Rosser. Norman barely survives the explosion. Sam tries again at the parking lot where construction is underway and Amanda is hurt saving Mark from scaffolding falling as a result of the explosion. Finally a makeshift bomb blows up ...
