The petri dish display on the monitor contines to blink “NO GROWTH.” Leavitt is slack-jawed, in a daze. The mechanical, repeated movement of the petri dishes seems to be hypnotic.

Back in the patient care room, Hall and Anson raise the back of Jackson’s gurney. It’s 11:55pm.

Jackson pats Anson’s bottom through the isolation suit.

“Feeling… better, aren’t you, Mister Jackson?” says Anson.

“E-yup,” says Jackson. “Do you always have to wear that iron suit?”

“Y-yup,” says Anson, imitating Jackson.

“Maybe you’ll tell us the baby’s name now, Mister Jackson?” asks Hall.

“Manuel Rios,” says Jackson.
