At the hospital Nikolas is dressed up in a Halloween costume and playing around with Amy. She knows who it is. He asked her how she knew it was him. "You are like a sleek black cat!" she laughs.

So after a little talking Sarah decided to go to work early to talk to Nikolas in the hopes that they could get everything straightened out. When she arrives at the hospital Nikolas greets her with excitement. He starts talking about going to one of their houses so they can be alone for the night. By this time all Sarah is thinking about is the condoms she found, so everything he says she automatically thinks he is talking about sex.
