Veronica Still Alive

During the finale, Veronica ended up fighting with Jeffrey and she falls over the railing. Jeffrey's friend who is a nurse tries to help Veronica, but she tells him to take his hands off of her because of his lifestyle and his attraction to Jeffrey.

Nurse Maddison tells Jeffrey several times to call an ambulance, but he just stands and looks over the railing. He wouldn't give the address of the house. He just walks away from the scene where his mother lies on the floor.

Veronica makes it to the hospital and is her usual self when the FBI shows up to question her about the car bombing that caused the death of Erica and the hospitalization of David. When the FBI asks her what happened to land her in the hospital, she lied and said she fell. She did not disclose that she and her son were fighting at the time.
