  • After Caroline Hill reveals that she assisted in his suicide, Julia discovers he'd been diagnosed with Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT) disease, a degenerative nerve disorder, that would have eventually killed him.
  • Caroline suspects that he had called Julia (ep.717) because he knew she would help him to have a dignified death of his own choosing.
