    Insider Quote About Benefit:

"You know from the press release that the patient carrying the bio toxin is cut
into at the end of the Wednesday January 28 show and that is when the bio toxin
is released. Before that you have an hour by hour count up to that moment. You
will have gala scenes on January 27. That is people arriving. January 28 is some
being called away to the surgery and the surgery gone wrong in the last scene.
From January 16-January 28 they are setting up the tensions that will be the
background for this crises. That means that those days aren't really centric to
Patrick, Jason, Sonny, Carly. For a comparison go back and look at the week or
two before the MC especially those last few days when the hour by hour started
but Jerry hadn't taken the place hostage.From January 28-Mid February Patrick is
a featured player. He is the one in charge at the hospital during the crises as
Monica falls ill with the initial bio toxin release as does Liz. Jason and Sam
are also featured as they are trying to figure out who did this. Nik is also
featured because of Rebecca's appearance on the scene. Robin does not disappear
but remember I said above that the scenes in hour by hour count up is setting up
stories for after the bio toxin is released so yes her PPD is an issue that makes
her help not all that helpful.There is a quarantine but people at the gala start
falling ill and they start going upstairs."
