She looks at Eli's e-mail and finds one that states that the "husband" sample has been ruled out as being the father of Meg's baby but the "other" sample cannot be ruled out and shares all paternal markers, meaning Paul is the father. After a minute or two, she makes her way back to her hospital room, where Paul finds her sitting up in bed and begins asking her if she's okay and if she knows what happened and if she can remember how long she's been awake; while he's questioning her, she again becomes unconscious.
