Melissa sat the watching Veronica beg for help. The fumes are started to take effect on Veronica. Melissa makes it clear she isn't going to help her. She wants Veronica to die, and you can't blame her. Unfortunately, Melissa didn't get her wish after all. Benny and Mitch came to the rescue. Veronica has caused Benny enough drama. But, he pulled her out the car. Mitch calls for help. Veronica has to go to the hospital. She wants Benny to ride with her in the ambulance. In my eyes, she owes Benny now. Melissa refused to go to the hospital. She doesn't care about the baby growing in her stomach. Melissa doesn't even care about life at this point. I am also surprised she isn't showing yet. TV land, you announce you pregnant, and your stomach is showing the next. This pregnancy doesn't seem like it will be birth anytime soon.
