Hemochromatosis is a disease that only occurs in a child if both parents carry the recessive genes for it. The father’s report shows that he doesn’t carry the gene, which means the father is someone else.

Dr. Lim asks Glassman if he would have done the procedure on her differently. Dr. Glassman expresses that he’s frustrated as well, and if he could, he would go back and prevent Dr. Shaun’s surgery.
