When Micah returns to Chastain for a check-up , it is clear that he has a crush on Mina, and he manages to persuade her to get coffee together. He keeps on pursuing her, even though she says, "I will guarantee you one thing, I will break your brand new heart". But he'll risk it as its "replaceable". They later sleep together, and Micah declares they are a 'thing', but Mina is reluctant to start a relationship, as she can't give him what he needs. 
She’s adamant that it’s just sex, while he insists they’ve got a real connection but Micah’s body suddenly tenses up, and he’s barely able to speak. Mina rushes him to Chastain Park Memorial Hospital, where she tells the doctors that his symptoms appeared after "exertion". They discover that Micah has an aortic dissection, a complication of his heart transplant. Surgery is needed to fix the tear in Micah’s chest, but the survival rate for this procedure is not promising.
