- Burn cream
Frank had been seeing Pete for panic attacks and blackouts due to stress from fires. Pete had given him herbs and he'd done acupuncture and exercises. He said that what really helped was wearing bras. He was worried about how his crew would react if they found out, so he asked Pete to help him stop. Frank was later burned in a fire on the job and taken to the ER, where he wouldn't let anyone touch him except Pete because he'd been wearing a bra under his uniform. Pete told him he'd be okay, but when his crew saw his bra, he said he was quitting. Pete convinced him not to, saying his crew would understand.
- Violet Turner (psychiatrist)
- Talk therapy
Linda had a consult with Violet for sleeping pills. She'd been having trouble sleeping since her husband died, but it had recently gotten worse. When pressed, she told Violet that she wasn't sleeping because she was scared of her teenage son, whom she suspected was a sociopath. Violet later figured out that that wasn't true.
Addison's Second PatientEdit
- Diaphragmatic hernia
- Addison Forbes Montgomery (neonatal surgeon)

Addison operated on a newborn with a diaphragmatic hernia. The baby was later unstable in the NICU, so Addison checked on her.
- Cooper Freedman (pediatrician)
Cooper treated a one year old named Miles whose mother was concerned that his head was too large. After seeing his head, Cooper agreed to run some tests. The tests revealed no cause.
- Violet Turner (psychiatrist)
- Psychiatric testing
Jesse was brought in to see Violet by his mother after she was concerned that he was a sociopath. She gave him a psychiatric diagnostic test, which was inconclusive. He later confessed to her that he'd snapped his dog's neck because they didn't have the money to put him down and his mom was going to pay the thousands of dollars to try to treat his cancer.
- Ovarian torsion
- Post-op bleeding
- Addison Forbes Montgomery (fetal surgeon)
Addison operated on a pregnant woman with ovarian torsion. After the surgery, she told his husband that she and the baby were both fine. However, she later started bleeding out and her baby was in distress. Addison operated again and told her husband again that she'd be fine.
