Luke: Mom! What happened? [Door closes] I got out of class, and I heard on the news that you and Grandmother were held hostage --

Lily: Everybody's okay. Everything's fine. I'm so glad that you're here. I want us to all be together today.

Luke: Well, they said that the guy who did this was killed. What happened?

Holden: Faith, why don't you take Nat and put a movie on, okay?

Faith: But I want to hear what happened.

Lily: Just go in there, and I'll be in in a minute, okay? We'll watch a movie together? Evan Walsh killed Dusty and another man that was helping him. He used your grandmother and myself as hostages to get away. There was a struggle, and he was killed.

Luke: By who?

Holden: It was an accident. Evan, he was just, he was out of control. He's the one who poisoned Bob Hughes.

Luke: Poison? Like what they found in the syringe?

Holden: And after Dusty had found out what Evan had done --

Luke: Evan killed Dusty. So you're cleared! I knew they'd realize that you were innocent, but I still don't understand why you didn't defend yourself.

Lily: He was protecting me.

Holden: I'm just glad the truth came out.

Lucinda: I hope I'm still welcome in this home.

Luke: Why wouldn't you be?

Chris: I brought Evan into this hospital. I was so sure memo 21 was important research.

Bob: I knew it was a mistake, but I never thought that Evan Walsh was a murderer.

Chris: Because of me, you almost died.

Bob: Given the substance that he used, I am lucky to be alive. Sadly, Dusty and his colleague were not as fortunate.

Chris: I'll never forgive myself for that. And I don't blame you, Dad, if you can't either. But I'm here to ask you to try.

Lucinda: Well, I don't want to be an intruder at a quality family moment.

Luke: Well last time I checked, you were family. I'm glad you're okay.

Lucinda: Oh, Honey -- thank you, Darling.

Lily: You're always welcome here, Mother.

Faith: We can't get the DVD player to work. Grandma! I'm so glad to see you!

Lucinda: Hi, Sweetie. Hi kids. You stay close to your mom. Stay close to your mom. I left something in the car. I'll be back.

Luke: Grandma, Grandma, Grandma.

Lucinda: Oh!

Luke: Will you tell me what's going on?

Jack: Forensics report confirms that the substance found in the syringe that killed Evan matches the one that killed Dusty.

Margo: Excellent. So Holden is officially in the clear.

Jack: Sometimes a little reward works better than discipline.

Margo: That's a lovely sentiment, but does it really apply to a murder investigation?

Jack: Two tickets to tonight's hockey game. Are these from you?

Margo: I don't feel I have to buy your love, Jack.

Jack: Okay, who would give me hockey tickets? Oh, maybe they're not for me. Maybe they're for Parker, from his coach. Yeah, he knows that we've been having trouble with him.

Margo: So how's it going with the therapy?

Jack: Oh, it's going. She says that Carly and I need to spend more time with Parker -- as a family.

Margo: Then you should. You should go -- go do that.

Jack: No, I didn't say anything.

Margo: No, you don't have to, really. Honestly. Just seeing what Lily and Holden went through -- it's good to have family around when the chips are down. Go --

Jack: You sure about that? It's not exactly a slow day here.

Margo: Our murderer is dead. He's not going anywhere.

Jack: Well, all right, maybe this'll get through to him. Nothing else has. Thanks.

Sam: I wonder if Jack took the bait.

Cowboy Jack: You better hope so, otherwise that kid's gonna be over here spyin' on his mom, ruining your last chance.

Sam: Hey.

Carly: Hey.

Sam: Yeah, I'm just getting things together here, and then I will be out of your hair for good.

Carly: I am sorry that it had to be this way. I think it's best if you move out, and then Kit and I can decide what to do with Metro.

Sam: Understood.

Carly: I guess this is good bye then. I plan on closing early so I can spend some time with Parker.

Sam: Okay.

[Cell phone rings]

Carly: Excuse me.

Carly: Hello.

Jack: Hey, Carly. Parker's coach gave him two tickets to tonight's hockey game. Now we've got a couple problems -- number one, it's a school night. Number two, he's grounded.

Carly: Does he think it'll help?

Jack: You don't think so?

Carly: Actually, I think it's a great idea. Dr. Seidman said we have to help Parker feel like he's a part of a family again. What better way than a hockey game with his dad, right?

Jack: Thanks, Carly.

Jack: I owe you Margo.

Will: Margo, we've been trying to reach you -- no one would put us through.

Gwen: You told us the police were on this -- now Sofie has our baby somewhere in New York City.

Margo: Wait, wait a minute. How do you know Sofie's in New York City?

Will: She called Aaron, and he took a flight out there, and he found her and Hallie -- and now they're gone again.

Gwen: Please -- too much time is passing. You have to help us find our baby.

Aaron: Sofie -- where are you?

[Hallie crying]

Sofie: Come on, Hallie. Come on. I gave you a bottle. I changed your diaper. What's wrong with you? Oh my God. Oh my God. You're burning up!

Margo: That was missing children's division, NYPD. They're putting out an APB.

Gwen: Do you really think they're going to be able to find Sofie based on that photo on Aaron's cell?

Will: Come on, we can still catch a flight to New York.

Margo: No, no. Please, don't do that.

Will: I'm not going to sit here and do nothing while a crazy woman runs off with our daughter.

[Hallie crying]

Sofie: Mommy's here. Mommy's here. It's going to be okay, I promise. I promise.

NYC cop: Stop right there, Miss. Looks like you've got a problem.

Sofie: I'm fine, Officer. My baby's just a little upset, that's all.

NYC cop: Hold on. [Hallie cries] Your kid looks sick.

Sofie: No, she's okay.

NYC cop: Yeah, you're a doctor?

Sofie: I'm her mother. I can handle this.

NYC cop: Walking around in the cold while she cries her head off?

Sofie: We're just out for some fresh air.

NYC cop: I know what's going on. You don't have insurance, right?

Sofie: I hadn't even thought of that.

NYC cop: It's okay. Any ER has to treat your baby. Hold on a minute and I'll take you there.

Luke: Grandma, I always know when you're hiding something.

Lucinda: Can I never hide anything from you?

Luke: Well, now that I'm in college, nothing gets by me.

Lucinda: Smarty -- [Luke laughs] I just feel so terribly responsible for this whole ghastly ordeal.

Luke: Why? Because Evan Walsh was your step-grandson, or whatever? Hey, you guys weren't even close.

Lucinda: And I'm smart. I'm smart -- I'm supposed to be smart. I should have anticipated what he was capable of.

Luke: You are smart.

Lucinda: Yeah --

Luke: And nobody could have anticipated this.

Lucinda: I could have. I could have.

Meg: Oh, I finally got Ethan down.

Faith: Want to help us make brownies?

Holden: I need to steal Aunt Meg for a minute.

Meg: What is it? Is Lily holding up okay?

Holden: Yeah, considering everything that she went through, she's doing great. I saw you at the hospital with Paul.

Meg: Lily was held hostage. She barely escaped with her life, and you're upset I was talking to Paul?

Holden: What did he want?

Meg: He thought he could get me back by getting you off the hook.

Holden: Please tell me it didn't work.

Bob: Three people died, so many others were hurt.

Chris: I couldn't feel worse.

Bob: I hope you learned something by this.

Chris: I realized I don't have all the answers. I mean, I saw a lot in Darfur, but I have a lot of learn about running a hospital.

Bob: When you do have a passion for your work. But to be a chief of staff, you've got to look at all sides. And have the ability to make tough decisions. And sometimes you -- you disappoint your friends and your colleagues, and sometimes, you make enemies.

Chris: I see that now.

Bob: I believe you do.

Chris: Does that mean you can forgive me?

Bob: Of course I forgive you. I love you. You're my son.

Chris: Dad -- Dad, thank you. You don't know what that means to me. I know I can never make it up to you, but I promise I'm going to try.

Bob: Son, because I can forgive you doesn't mean that other people can. You should seriously think about whether you should stay in Oakdale.

Sofie: Mommy's trying. Hey -- I don't know what to do. Please just tell me -- tell me how I can help you.

[Hallie crying]

Jack: Hey, how's practice? I went out on a limb and I ordered you a cheeseburger, some fries, and a chocolate shake.

Parker: Yeah, well, I hope you got it to go, because if I'm not home in 15 minutes, Mom's going to freak.

Jack: She's going to freak -- oh, coach didn't tell you, did he?

Parker: What?

Jack: Yeah, he was -- he probably didn't want to disappoint you in case we rejected his idea.

Parker: What are you talking about?

Jack: Two tickets to tonight's playoff game, courtesy of Coach Branford.

Parker: That's impossible.

Carly: I'm sorry you got caught up in my family problems, Sam. You have been a good friend, and a big help around here. I wish things could have worked out differently.

Sam: Oh, don't worry about it. Things will always turn out for the best.

Carly: Well, I appreciate your positive attitude. Now, I'm going to see if I can balance these books, or there'll won't be any business left to sell.

Sam: Yeah. [Sam sighs] Cowboy, why do I get the feeling that I'm not going to get a goodbye kiss?

Cowboy Jack: It's up to you. It's time to make your move.

Carly: What is that supposed to mean?

Parker: Okay, there's no way my coach gave you these tickets.

Jack: He left them at the station with a note, Buddy.

Parker: Okay, but you didn't see him or talk to him. Don't you think that's a little weird?

Jack: I worry about anonymous ticking packages left on my desk, not center ice seats. Come on, I thought you'd be thrilled to go to this game.

Parker: But I don't know -- it just -- it doesn't feel right.

Jack: Oh, don't -- don't go there again --

Parker: I think this is Sam.

Jack: No, why? Why can't you just drop it for five minutes? Come on, we're going to be late for the game.

Parker: I need you to believe me, Dad. Sam is up to something. I know it.

Chris: You want me to leave Oakdale?

Bob: No -- I didn't say I wanted you to leave. But I think there are others who may have trouble getting past what your mistake has cost this hospital.

Chris: Well, obviously I'll step down as chief of staff. That's your job. But I was hoping to stay on staff here, Dad. I'm still a good doctor.

Bob: Of course you are. But why not start new someplace else -- someplace where it will be easier for you to prove it?

[Cell phone rings]

Chris: Excuse me, Dad. Hello, Dr. Hughes.

Sofie: Dr. Hughes, its Sofie Duran.

Chris: Now's not really a good time.

Sofie: Please -- please help me. It's Hallie. I think she has a fever.

Chris: Well, bring her in, I'll have a look at her.

Sofie: I'm not in Oakdale.

Chris: Where are you? Are you with Gwen and Will? Sofie -- please tell me where you are.

Bob: What's going on?

Chris: I don't know. But I'm going to find out.

Margo: Look, Guys, I know how hard this is, but believe me, letting the police handle it is the fastest way to find Hallie.

Will: Maybe here, but New York is a huge city. Our missing child report is probably buried on some cop's desk.

Margo: No -- believe me, they take missing minors very seriously. They've got a lot of professional eyes and ears out looking for her.

Gwen: But none of them care as much as we do.

Margo: Well, exactly my point. You're much too emotionally involved. If you go to New York, you're going to end up scaring Sofie off, just like Aaron did. And besides, what if she comes back here?

Gwen: She's right.

Margo: I'm right -- well, go, I'll keep you posted. I promise.

[Cell phone rings]

[Hallie crying]

Chris: Hey, Sofie, please don't hang up. I want to help. Okay, babies get fevers all the time, but you have to treat them.

Sofie: Should I get her some baby aspirin or something?

Chris: Well, I can't diagnose this over the phone, I have to see her. And if it's serious, we'll have to admit her and run some tests. Wherever you are you need to bring Hallie home.

Sofie: Oakdale is not Hallie’s home anymore. I am her mother and she is with me now.

Chris: The toughest part of being a parent is knowing when your child's needs are more important than your own. So please just tell me --

[Hallie crying]

Luke: Evan Walsh was a psychotic killer.

Lucinda: Yeah --

Luke: You can't be held responsible --

Lucinda: I know, I keep telling myself that, I do, but -- oh, my hand is shaking. Look at that, I -- I could have stopped this.

Luke: No, no, you must be shock, Grandma. Because this is not your fault.

Lucinda: But Darling, I'm on the board. You know, on the board at the hospital, I could have made sure that we delved better into Evan’s research, his background, and I could have made sure that Chris didn't forge ahead with this project. Maybe, I could have stopped him, maybe.

Luke: Look, Grandmother, you're not the only person on that board. And nobody saw this coming. So you can't blame yourself.

Lucinda: Oh, Honey. As usual, as usual, you're smarter than your years -- get out of here, go in with your family. Go -- go inside. This family hasn't had anything to celebrate in such a long time. I'm okay.

Luke: Grandma, I want you to remember that you and Mom were the victims. And I am so happy that you got out alive.

Lucinda: Oh, but Dusty wasn't so lucky. Oh, Honey.

Meg: I almost has a child with Paul. That's a connection we'll always have.

Holden: That doesn't mean that you belong with the guy.

Meg: I love Paul, whether you like it or not. But I know I can't go back to him. I am done with self-destructive relationships.

Holden: Good. I'm glad to hear it.

Luke: Grandmother's outside. She doesn't want me to say anything, but she's upset.

Lily: I'll go.

Meg: No, no -- let me. I have something that will help the both of us.

[Hallie crying]

Sofie: It's okay -- shh.

Cab driver: Do need a ride?

Sofie: Yeah, my baby's sick. I need to get to the airport, but I don't have any money.

Cab driver: Get in.

Sofie: But I can't pay you.

Cab driver: I live in Queens, near the airport. It's on my way.

Sofie: Okay, okay --

Aaron: Sofie! Sofie! Sofie! No.

Sam: Cowboy Jack was just telling me I better get a move on. And he's right. I've got to stop stalling and hit the road here. I don't want to cause you and your son any more problems.

Carly: Thank you. I'm glad you understand.

Sam: So, I'll go upstairs and finish packing.

[Phone rings]

Carly: Metro.

Singer: Hey, it's Joe from the Redeemers.

Carly: Yeah, sorry, no time for redemption this week.

Singer: No, no -- the Redeemers, the band. We were supposed to play there.

Carly: Oh, it's you. Well, I'm glad -- I've been wanting to talk to you.

Singer: Uh, well we'll forgive you for canceling if you rebook us.

Carly: You'll forgive me? You left me without an act on one of my busiest nights!

Singer: Oh, it was the guy that works for you. It's Sam. He cancelled our gig.

Jack: I just don't buy into your theory about Sam.

Parker: I'm telling you, this guy is trouble.

Jack: Okay, all right. You want to play detective? Riddle me this, if the guy hates you so much, why would he give you outstanding tickets to the game of the year?

Parker: I don't know. Maybe that's how his sick mind works.

Jack: I'm not going to feed into your little obsession anymore. All right, these are outstanding tickets and there's no way I'm letting them go to waste. So, come on, eat up. You're going to have fun tonight whether you like it or not.

Parker: Fine, but could we at least stop at Mom's first? I have to drop off my books.

Jack: Nice try. If it makes you feel any better, we will stop by and check on your mom -- after the game.

Carly: That was Joe from the Redeemers on the phone. He said that he didn't cancel at the last minute, Sam. He said that you fired him. You're not going to deny it?

Sam: I can’t. It's true.

Carly: Would you care to explain?

Sam: Yeah.

Carly: I'm waiting.

Sam: I'm in love with you, Carly. These past months, seeing what an amazing woman you are, how strong and caring -- I'm sorry, I just -- I just couldn't help fall for you.

Carly: I had no idea you felt that way.

Sam: Oh, come on. We've had our moments.

Carly: You're with Kit!

Sam: Which is why I thought if I got Kit out of town, something might happen.

Carly: Oh God, you didn't tell Kit that I was leading you on, did you? Because I would never do that.

Sam: No, no, I know, I know. You're too good for that. And I know you would never move in on another woman's guy. I just thought that -- I just thought if we were alone together, get everyone else out of our hair --

Carly: Let me make this perfectly clear to you, Sam! Nothing will ever happen between us. Never. You got that?

Meg: Lucinda?

Lucinda: Hi, Meg.

Meg: Hi, um -- I know that today was pretty traumatic for you. But I have something that will make you feel better.

Lucinda: Huh? What's that?

Meg: It's your company. I'm giving it back to you like this.

Lily: The kids are all right? We're alive.

Holden: I'm not wanted for murder.

Lily: I don't know what to do with myself.

Holden: Seems like a good time to start over.

Lily: Alone? Or with me?

Meg: You have been scheming for months to get the company from Craig. I am handing it to you, no strings attached. Why -- why won't you take it?

Lucinda: Believe you, me -- I've got my reasons.

Holden: We've been through so much. I'm not sure that we can start over.

Lily: I would like to, if you would -- with a clean slate.

Holden: There's one way that would work. With a promise. No more secrets. Ever.

Will: What do we do now?

Gwen: I'm going to go online and see if I can find any missing children's sites.

[Cell phone rings]

Will: Hello?

Aaron: I just saw Sofie.

Will: You found her? Don't let her out of your sight, I'm going to call the police.

Aaron: Will, I'm sorry. She jumped in a car and took off. I tried to stop her, but I couldn’t.

Will: What kind of car?

Aaron: I didn't get a good look. Dark sedan -- I didn't see the license plate. But listen, I'm going to keep looking. Okay, but I'm not going to lie to you, she could have gone anywhere.

Will: Thanks for trying, man. Just keep us posted. He lost her again. I'm going to let Margo know.

Gwen: Hey, wait -- wait, there's a message. It might be from Sofie.

Chris: Uh, hey, Gwen, Will-- hey, it's Chris Hughes. Um, I'm at the hospital. I just got a call from Sofie, she wouldn't say where she was. When I tried to talk her into coming home, she hung up on me. I don't want to worry you guys, but she said Hallie was sick.

Will: Let's go.

Gwen: Okay.

Lucinda: Uh, Lily, I'm going.

Meg: No, no, you are not leaving until you sign these papers.

Lily: What papers?

Lucinda: It's nothing you have to concern yourself with.

Lily: Wait, wait -- what's going on here?

Lucinda: We're not going to discuss it now. It's nothing for you two to concern yourselves with.

Holden: Why don't you let us decide that?

Meg: I was trying to give Worldwide back to Lucinda, and she's refusing to accept it, and I don't understand why.

Holden: Isn't that what you've always wanted?

Lucinda: It is what I wanted. But things are different now.

Meg: Okay -- I don't know how, unless you mean you don't get a chance to ruin Craig to get it back.

Holden: Is that it, Lucinda? There's no thrill of the fight? No blood lust?

Lucinda: Oh, please don't say that. Don't -- I mean -- not even a jest. I mean, even I've got limits. Its blood money and I can't accept it.

Meg: Okay, see what I'm up against?

Lily: I think my mother feels that the support of Evan Walsh’s research may have tainted the company. Maybe it's time for all of us to make a fresh start. Meg's giving you another chance. I think you should take it.

Sam: I knew this was a mistake, but I realized it too late. I'd already cancelled the band, and then I didn't want us both to feel uncomfortable by telling you why, so I --

Carly: I guess I didn't see what I didn't want to see. Well, I suppose there was some truth to what Parker was saying, after all.

Sam: Carly, nothing happened. So please, you don't have to tell Kit about this, right? No harm, no foul.

Carly: Fine. I won't tell Kit. But I do think now more than ever, it's best if you just get your stuff and you go.

Sam: I intend to.

Carly: Thank you.

Sam: I just want to finish my beer.

Lily: All right, Meg wants you to have the company back. And I know you want it as well.

Lucinda: My quest to get the company back -- Dusty's dead. I don't want the company back. I should be going to jail, instead of being rewarded for getting my way.

Lily: Oh, what good would that do?

Lucinda: And you, my darling, please don't jeopardize your relationship with Holden because of my stuff. You know, what's going on. Please don't -- I wouldn't want that on my conscience too.

Lily: Okay. I will keep your secret about what happened, under one condition. Meg! Could you please bring those papers in here? My mother's going to sign them.

Will: I don't care what Margo says, I'm going to go to New York. You should stay here. But I gotta talk to the police.

Chris: Hey, Guys, sorry to keep you waiting. I'm sure you heard about the situation we had here earlier.

Will: We have a crisis of our own right now.

Gwen: Will. Hey, in your message you said you talked to Sofie? Where is she? How's Hallie?

Chris: You know what, I can't be sure. She wouldn't say where she was and when I tried to convince her to come home, she hung up on me.

Gwen: You're right. Go to New York. See if you and Aaron can find her.

Sofie: You don't have to. I'm here.

Meg: Well, I'm so glad you changed your mind.

Lucinda: I'm not sure that I have.

Lily: Please, just sign it. There's been enough loss in this family to last a lifetime. And when someone gives you a second chance to start over, you'd be a fool not to take it.

Meg: Well, congratulations. Now, please do some good with it.

Holden: So, how does it feel to no longer be CEO of a major corporation?

Meg: Like a weight was lifted, and I can finally get on with my life. Now I wish I knew how to do that.

Holden: Lily and I have that same problem.

Meg: Yeah, but at least you guys have each other. I have to figure out what being alone looks like.

Holden: You're not alone. You have your family. We're here to help you out, if you'll let us.

Meg: I'm counting on that.

Carly: I thought you were leaving.

Sam: Not without saying goodbye. Care to join me?

Carly: Looks like you've had enough for both of us. Well, Sam, it's been great, hasn't it? I wish you the very best of luck.

Sam: Oh, no, no, no. Oh hey, hey, hey -- I can't let you take that. I can't let a pretty thing like you strain yourself.

Carly: I'm stronger than I look.

Sam: Oh, I bet you are.

Carly: You should go, Sam. It's getting late. Jack'll be wondering where I am.

Sam: You can't fool me. I know there's no one waiting for you.

Jack: You gotta admit, that was a great game. The goal scored in the last ten seconds. How often do you get to see that?

Parker: Mom!

Jack: She's not back from Metro? All right.

[Phone ringing]

Carly: Metro.

Jack: I brought Parker to your place, I thought you'd be home by now. Everything okay?

Carly: I'm glad you called.

Parker: Look, Mom, is Sam bugging you?

Carly: Parker. Everything's fine, Honey. I'm sorry that I wasn't there. I'm closing up right now.

Parker: But, Mom --

Carly: Don't worry, Honey. I'll be home soon. That was Jack. He's waiting for me. You really should go so I can lock up.

Sam: One kiss, then I'm out of here.

Carly: That is really not a good idea.

Sam: One kiss, Carly. Then you'll never see me again. You don't want to do that.

Jack: You satisfied now? Your mother's on her way home.

Parker: Well, she sounded strange.

Jack: You never give up, do you?

Parker: Look, we have to go to Metro. Something's wrong with Mom.

Jack: Whoa, wait a second. Whoa, wait a second, all right? I'm worried about you. Maybe Dr. Seidman was right. Maybe the stress of everything that's happened in the past year is finally catching up to you.

Parker: I'm not a head case! I have a gut feeling about this. You've got to believe me.

Jack: Okay, I tell you what. You have school tomorrow, why don't you go up to bed --

Parker: But --

Jack: And I will stay here until your mother gets home.

Parker: You promise?

Jack: Scout's honor. Go on. And don't worry. Everything's fine.

[Jack sighs]

Sam: No, you're not going anywhere.

Carly: Sam, you don't want to do this. Just let me go.

Sam: I wish I could, Darling. But I can't.

Carly: Of course you can. You're just -- you're just feeling a little sad about leaving. But you have Kit, right --

Sam: Shut up! Shut up! I don't want to hear about Kit.

Carly: Kit loves you. And I know you care about her, Sam.

Sam: This is about you and me. This is about you always turning me on, but never coming through.

Carly: Sam, listen to me. I am so sorry if I have ever done anything to lead you on. I certainly don't want you to get the wrong idea.

Sam: Oh, no, no. This is the right idea. You're just playing hard to get.

Carly: I'm not playing anything, Sam! You have to stop this right now!

Sam: No, I can't. I can't. You see, I can't quit, otherwise Cowboy Jack would be real disappointed in me.

Carly: Ahh! No! No!

[Sam rips Carly’s shirt and get on top of her]

Gwen: Is she okay?

Will: How could you take her out of her own home?

Gwen: She's burning up. What did you do to her, Sofie? Give her to me now.

Sofie: Please, please, take care of my baby.

Lucinda: I gotta say, my signature looks good. On the contract where it belongs. Feels good.

Lily: I knew you'd bounce back.

Lucinda: Yeah. Yeah, I can bounce back. Thank you. And I will endeavor to make you proud of me in the future.

Lily: I will keep your secret. And I would love to be proud of you again someday, Mother. But you went too far this time. And you're going to have to live with that.

Chris: Let me take a look at her, okay?

Sofie: I'm coming with you.

Gwen: No, you're not. I am.

Chris: Wait, I think it's best if you both wait out here.

Gwen: You know, I know what it's like to give a baby up for adoption. I know how hard it can be. But we had an agreement. Do you understand? And you broke it.

Sofie: You and Will promised -- you promised I could be part of my baby's life. And then Will's mother shut the door in my face. So if you want to blame anyone, blame yourself.

Holden: Alone at last. Are you okay?

Lily: I've been thinking about what you said earlier. That if we want to start over, we need to make a promise. No more secrets.

Holden: And?

Lily: And I do want to start over. I do.

Holden: I was hoping you'd say that.

Lily: But there's something I have to tell you.

Holden: Okay, clean slate time. I'm ready.

Lily: I do have a secret. But it's one I can't share with you.

Gwen: You know, you're right. I do blame myself. I thought we could have an open adoption. But I did not set firm enough boundaries. And worse, I didn't realize how hard it was going to be for you. But doesn't change the fact that what you did was wrong. You stole our baby.

Sofie: No, she's my baby.

Will: No, she's not. We're her parents now and you can't just run off with her and expect everything to be okay.

Margo: Sofie Duran, you're under arrest for kidnapping. You'll have to come with me now. You have the right to remain silent, anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law.

Sofie: No, you can't do this! No, she is my baby! You promised! You promised I could be in her life! You promised me!

[Sofie cries]

Holden: I thought you wanted to start over.

Lily: I do. And if I could tell you, I would. I swear. But it's not my secret to tell.

Holden: Whose secret is it?

Lily: My mother’s.

Holden: Oh okay. Is that what's been going on between the two of you?

Lily: Yes. Look, I -- working things out with you and putting our family back together, that's what I've always wanted. That's what I've always wanted. And the idea of it getting ripped apart again because of this, it would just -- I can't even bear the thought of it. But if I tell you, it won't just hurt my mother, it will put you in a very difficult position. A complete legal mess.

Holden: Okay, stop. Stop. It's my turn. I'm going to have to trust you enough to not ask for any more details.

Lily: Really?

Holden: Yes. I think we should start over. Right now. Right here. I'm willing to try if you are.

Carly: Ahh! No!

Sam: Get back here.

Carly: No! No! Help me! Somebody help me!

[Gun shot]
