It starts with a fight happening near John Nolan as he contemplates to help. But a majority of the episode will take place in the hospital which becomes a hub for gang war after many people are admitted.

Overall, the episode will be claustrophobic since most of the action will happen in the hospital. We can expect some civilians to also get hurt amid many shootouts as well as gunfights due to the gangsters involved in the storyline.
