I agree it was a CYA gesture, but they still could have asked the foundation to pay for it before this all happened. Granted, the foundation can't pay for every case like this that comes up, but if this girl was so important they could have tried. Or done a million other things to try and help.
Would a psychiatric hospital turn someone away if they showed up saying they need help and ask to be admitted?
Yeah, it is ridiculous, but if Amelia told him she was in labor, wouldn't she also have to tell him Teddy was about to profess his love to Owen? Because when he showed up he'd see their lovefest. Maybe Amelia wanted to stay out of that minefield.
Yes, and it's sort of worse, because Teddy insisted to Tom before they dated that she was really over Owen and they weren't meant to be together. Granted, she was probably lying to herself, but it still really sucks for Tom.
