After sunset on Christmas Eve, Mac has a car wreck, which renders her unconscious and sends her to a hospital; she dreams flashbacks about a recent conversation with her therapist and about certain significant events in her life, especially ones involving Webb and Harm. While unconscious Mac repeatedly speaks Harm's name, so an EMT finds Harm's cellphone number in Mac's PDA, then the EMT calls Harm. Harm promptly goes to Mac's hospital room, and he soon says that he'll stay there with her that night. Harm and Mac start a process of reaching out to and communicating with each other.
Did You Know?
Mac's endometriosis is depicted incorrectly. Endometriosis doesn't just suddenly appear, like it did with her, nor is it constant back pain, like what was inferred in earlier episodes. It is a condition some women have from when they start having their period. The pain is evident only during that part of her cycle. Although it can present as back pain in some cases, there are other symptoms which are a lot more prevalent - intense abdominal pain being foremost. Back pain only presents in a small percentage of cases, and never as a stand-alone symptom. See more
