Kim: Unfortunately, you've had some twists and turns, I know.

Katie: But we haven't given up.

Brad: And we're lucky to be getting help from a friend.

Katie: Our dear friend Vienna Hyatt, our surrogate mother.

Vienna: Hello, everybody.

Kim: Well, now, having a surrogate mother is quite common, but I think it's rare to have it happening this way.

Brad: Hey.

Kim: Do you want to explain how --

Brad: How long have you been up?

Katie: All night, I think.

Brad: All night? Baby, I'm really worried about you.

Katie: Can you not call me that, please?

Brad: I know that you're upset that Henry and Vienna lied to us.

Katie: They didn't just lie to us. They took our -- how could they not tell us that that wasn't our baby? They just sat back and watched. They watched us fall in love with this child that wasn't --

[Katie sighs]

Brad: I know.

[Voice breaking]

Katie: They let us make so many plans.

Brad: I know, I know, I know. I know. I think that you would feel a lot better if you let yourself get some rest.

Katie: I know. Every time I try, I just --

[Katie sighs]

Brad: What if I got you something to help you sleep. Would you take it? Okay, I'm gonna get dressed, go to the drugstore. All right? Love you.

[Katie sighs]

Katie: Well, I'm sure our audience remembers how devastated I was when I found out that I couldn't have children.

Brad: Yeah, well, we thought about hiring a surrogate, but that would be someone that we didn't know, and then Vienna just sort of volunteered.

Vienna: Do you think Brad and Katie will ever forgive us?

Henry: I hope to God they do, in time.

Vienna: But what if they don't?

Henry: They're our best friends, Vienna. They're not gonna stay mad at us forever.

Vienna: Yeah, but we broke their trust. We took away something so precious.

Henry: We didn't intend to do that, okay? T -- that wasn't planned. They have to realize that eventually.

Vienna: Yes, but every time they'll see that baby, they're gonna -- they're gonna remember that it was supposed to be theirs.

[Both sigh]

Henry: Can't think like that, because it's not theirs. It never was theirs. It's ours.

Vienna: So you really want to -- you really want to keep him, becoming parents?

Henry: Well, I'll admit to you the idea still scares the hell out of me, but, uh -- but I -- I think I'm ready. And there's no one I'd rather be a parent with than you. How about you? Are you ready?

[Henry laughs]

Vienna: This is all I ever wanted. I can only think of one thing that would make this more perfect.

Henry: Which is?

Vienna: Some new maternity clothes to model for you.

Henry: Ooh. I'm getting a flashback to a very fashionable dressing room. If you find the credit card in my pocket, the store is all yours.

[Both laughing]

Henry: It's almost there. Oh! Wow.

Vienna: Ah.

Vienna: Brad, wait. Please, please. How's Katie?

Brad: How's Katie? I mean, how do you think she's doing? You know, she's devastated. She feels like she did after she had the miscarriage. I mean, she won't eat. She can't sleep.

Vienna: I'm so sorry. We never wanted to hurt either one of you.

Brad: You should have told us the truth.

Vienna: I didn't know how.

Brad: You just say it, you know? "The baby's not yours, Brad. It's Henryís. The insemination -- it didn't work."

Vienna: I'm so sorry. I'm so sorry.

[Vienna sighs]

Vienna: We handled this all wrong.

Brad: Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. I mean, Katie -- that's all she ever wanted was a baby, and she finally thought her wish was gonna come true, and I just -- I don't know if she's gonna be able to get over this.

Lucy: I never meant for my father to get into any trouble.

Margo: Really?

Lucy: Yeah. You don't believe me?

Margo: Well, you deliberately used his company as a front, knowing that if anything went wrong, he'd take the hit, which he did. And coming here today doesn't change that, does it?

[Door opens]

Lucinda: Darling, Margo.

Margo: Lucinda, would you like a seat?

Lucinda: What I would like is to take this poor girl home.

Margo: Well, I'll leave you two alone, then, for a minute.

[Lucy sighs]

Lucinda: Come here. Let me look at you. Are you all right?

Lucy: Yeah, I'm fine.

Lucinda: I don't want you to worry. I talked to the lawyer again this morning. We're gonna get you out of here.

Lucy: I don't know what he's gonna be able to do.

Lucinda: Don't want you to give up hope!

Lucy: I wonít. And I don't regret what I did to help those people. It was worth it.

Lucinda: Yeah. I'm sure you saved countless lives, Darling. But I'm curious about what your plan is to save your own.

Lily: How did you guys sleep?

Noah: I slept fine. Luke, on the other hand --

Lily: Honey?

Luke: I just couldn't stop thinking about Lucy smuggling medicine with Damian's help.

[Luke laughs]

Luke: Is she all right? Did you talk to her?

Lily: She was in police custody overnight.

Holden: Don't worry about it. Your grandmother's called in some heavy hitters to handle her case.

Luke: Well, I don't think she's gonna need them.

Lily: Why not?

Noah: Tell them.

Luke: Damian says he has a plan to help Lucy.

Holden: Oh, great. Well, then Lucy better watch her back. Damian's the last person who should be riding to the rescue.

Damian: Put the word out. I'm looking to use my ships to make a little extra cash.

Thug: Doing what?

Damian: What do you think?

Thug: You can't be serious.

Damian: Look like I'm kidding to you?

Thug: Since when are the Grimaldis into smuggling weapons?

Damian: Since I said so.

Thug: Look, I had no problem moving medical supplies, but this --

Damian: I don't care. Just make it happen.

[Katie remembering]

Vienna: Well, Henry and I -- we've decided not to have children.

[Doorbell rings]

[Katie remembering]

Vienna: But it's always been a dream of mine to experience what it would be like to feel a --

[Doorbell rings]

Vienna: -- A new life growing inside of me and giving birth. And -- and now I can do that.

Vienna: Hi.

Katie: I told you I didn't want to see you. What do you want me to say?

Vienna: I saw Brad in Old Town, and I asked him how you were. I want you to know how badly I feel about this.

Katie: I know you do. Why are you here?

Vienna: Because we care about you. You're my sister. You're my Katya.

Katie: I remember when you used to call me that, but a lot's happened since then.

Vienna: I know, I know, and I don't expect things to change overnight.

Katie: I'm sorry. I can't see you.

[Vienna scoffs]

Katie: Vienna?

Vienna: It's just the baby.

Katie: Are you okay?

Vienna: I -- I just felt him move.

Katie: He's moving now?

Vienna: Yeah. Oh, my God. It still catches me off guard.

Katie: Do you want to sit down?

Vienna: Would you mind?

Katie: No, no. Come in.

[Vienna laughs]

Katie: Does he move a lot?

Vienna: Yeah, usually in the mornings.

[Vienna laughs]

Katie: Must be quite a sensation. What does it -- never mind?

Vienna: Do you want to feel it?

Katie: No, no. That's okay.

Vienna: It's all right. Go on. Go ahead.

Katie: I don't even know where he --

Vienna: Here. Do you feel it?

Katie: I do.

[Vienna chuckles]

Holden: Luke, this is how he operates. He lets other people do his dirty work, like your cousin, and he keeps his hands clean.

Luke: Yeah, but he used his own fleet to smuggle the medicine out of the country.

Holden: So?

Luke: So that's not exactly keeping your hands clean. If Damian wants to help --

Holden: Then he'll stay out of it and let Lucinda's lawyers handle it!

Luke: Mom --

Lily: I know you think I'd agree with you on this, but I donít. Damian's help always seems to create these situations that --

Luke: That -- that what?

Noah: That end with people getting hit by cars or stabbed or kidnapped or shot.

Luke: Yeah, but, Noah, don't forget that he saved our lives!

Noah: I know. But as your dad pointed out, he's the reason we were in danger in the first place. So maybe for now, before things get straightened out, staying away from Damian is not that bad an idea.

Luke: I can't believe this.

Noah: We're talking about smuggling guns here, Luke -- m-16s. Doesn't that sound a little dangerous to you?

Holden: Look, we're not trying to deny you to find whatever it is you're looking for from Damian.

Luke: I'm not looking for anything.

Holden: Well, then, fine. Then you'll wait until Lucy's in the clear and we find out what's going on here.

Luke: You want me to stay away him?

Lily: We're just looking out for you, Sweetie.

Noah: I need to get to work.

Luke: I will go with you.

Noah: Really?

Luke: Its okay, isn't it?

Noah: Yeah, sure.

Holden: Luke --

Luke: Hmm?

Holden: -- Remember what we said.

Luke: I will. What?

Noah: You have no intention of staying away from Damian, do you?

[Telephone rings]

Damian: Grimaldi.

Fredo: You're the guy that wants to move some things under the radar?

Damian: I am. Can you help me out? Do you know where my shipping office is on Pier 13?

Fredo: Oh, I -- I don't do offices.

Damian: How about the docks? 20 minutes.

Margo: Just offered you the use of the Grimaldi shipping fleet, just like that?

Lucy: Basically.

Margo: Why? Why would a man like Damian Grimaldi -- why would he get involved in anything humanitarian? Doesn't make sense.

Lucy: He said he had made some really big mistakes in the past.

Lucinda: Uh-huh.

Lucy: I knew he was talking about Luke. He was doing this as a way to redeem himself.

Lucinda: Be still my bleeding heart.

Lucy: People he helped -- it really made a difference.

Lucinda: And why isn't he helping you now? Why has he abandoned you?

Lucy: Damian is the reason that I was able to come forward and clear my father's name.

Lucinda: Oh, yeah, I see that. I do see that. And Craig is free and Damian is free and you, my precious granddaughter -- you are here.

Lucy: I don't blame Damian for that.

Lucinda: Perhaps it's time you began to.

Noah: You know, I've got a little while before I have to be on. Do you want to grab a bite, sit outside?

Luke: Actually, I think I'm gonna take off.

Noah: That quick, huh?

[Luke sighs]

Luke: What?

Noah: You're not gonna even pretend that you're not gonna go see Damian?

Luke: I just want to talk to him.

Noah: Talk to him?

Luke: Yes.

Noah: Fine. You want to go, go. I won't try to talk you out of it.

Luke: Thank you.

Noah: It's not like you'd listen to me anyway.

[Luke sighs]

Luke: Noah, it's not like I don't see what you all are saying. I'm getting a completely different side of the story from Damian.

Noah: Does that surprise you?

Luke: Well, the fact that I've spent so long not wanting to hear anything that he has to say makes me think that maybe I should just hear him out. It might help. I could get some answers.

Noah: And if you don't?

Luke: At least I tried.

Noah: I don't know. Luke, I just -- I don't like it.

Luke: I know you don't like it. But it's really, really, really, really important to me.

Noah: Fine. But will you please be careful?

Luke: Yes, I promise. I love you.

Noah: Same here.

Katie: That was amazing.

Vienna: I think he's tired himself out.

Katie: I bet.

[Vienna laughs]

Katie: How are you feeling?

Vienna: Better. Do you know why? Because just now, you almost had a smile.

Katie: Did I?

Vienna: Yes. When you felt the baby, you had a look on your face that I was afraid I would never see again.

Katie: Maybe 'cause it felt like nothing had changed for a second there. I felt that connection still like he was still mine.

Vienna: He was always supposed to be yours. I'm so sorry, Katie. If there's anything I could do to -- to change it, I would.

Katie: You don't have to say that.

Vienna: I do, I do, because this baby was always supposed to be yours and Brad's, not mine.

Katie: So why -- when you found out what happened --

Vienna: We were in shock. I'm sorry. We were in shock.

[Vienna sighs]

Vienna: We didn't know what to say, so we chose to say nothing. We didn't want anything to change.

Katie: You didn't?

Vienna: No, no. This was your baby. That -- that was always the plan.

Katie: Could it still be?

Vienna: What?

Katie: Could it still be the plan? Up until a couple days ago, you wanted us to have the baby, and you knew Henry was the father. The only difference was that Brad and I didn't know yet.

Vienna: But -- but you told me that you didn't want this baby now.

Katie: I know, but we had just found out the truth. We didn't know what to think. We just -- we were processing it. We didn't know what it meant. But this baby means everything to Brad and me. We don't want to lose him.

Vienna: No, no. I know, I know, I know. Okay. I have to -- I have to think about this.

Katie: Of course.

Vienna: I'm going to have to talk to Henry about this before we decide anything.

Katie: Henry will understand. I know it. I know he will.

Vienna: I should go.

Katie: But you'll call me as soon as you talk to Henry.

Vienna: I will. Brad.

Brad: Vienna. Do you want to tell me what's going on?

Katie: I fixed it.

Brad: Fixed what.

Katie: Everything. I think we're gonna have our baby after all.

Brad: That baby?

Katie: Yes, our baby!

Brad: Absolutely not.

Henry: Hey! There's my gorgeously round strudel.

[Henry laughs]

Henry: Where are your shopping bags?

Vienna: I didn't go shopping.

Henry: Oh, no. Where'd you go?

Vienna: I went to see Katie.

Henry: Why? Why did you do that?

Vienna: I had to. I -- I was on my way to Fashions, and I ran into Brad. And I asked him how she was doing, and he told me that she was completely devastated.

[Vienna sighs]

Henry: Yeah. Here. Come here. Ay, ay, ay.

[Vienna sighs]

Vienna: You should have seen her. It was awful when she opened the door.

Henry: Yeesh. I'm actually glad I didn't see her. You're a lot braver than I am.

Vienna: She's in so much pain.

Henry: She told you that?

Vienna: No, she didnít. She was trying to be so brave. And then -- when the baby moved and --

Henry: What, what, what, what? Whoa, whoa. Back up here. The baby moved?

Vienna: Yeah. The baby moved, and I -- I could see that she was dying. She was dying to see what it felt like. So I took her hand, and I placed it on my stomach.

Henry: Vienna, no. No, you didnít. No. No, no, no, no.

Vienna: No, I -- I wanted to. I wanted her to feel better.

[Henry sighs]

Henry: Did it? Did it make her feel better?

Vienna: No. I don't know.

Henry: I think that we just need to give her a little bit of space.

Vienna: No, no. I don't think that's what she wants.

Henry: Sweetie, I don't want to see her suffer any more than you do. And I -- I would do anything -- anything to stop that. I would.

Vienna: Do you really mean that?

Henry: You know I do.

Vienna: So you would reconsider giving them the baby?

Henry: Giving them the baby?

Vienna: Yes.

Henry: Our baby?

Vienna: Yes.

Henry: No. Absolutely not.

Damian: Luke.

Luke: Hey. I went to your office. I didn't expect to find you out here.

Damian: What are you doing here?

Luke: I'm looking for you.

Damian: You shouldn't have come down here.

Luke: I just came to talk.

Damian: Not now.

Luke: What?

Damian: Look, you have to go, Luke. I -- I'm busy. I don't have time for this right now.

Luke: Damian, what's going on?

Damian: I'm waiting for someone.

Luke: Well, then, I'll wait with you.

Damian: No! You'll just be in the way.

Luke: In the way?

Damian: Yes. Yes, please, just -- how can I make you understand? I don't want you here, all right?! You have to go! Just leave me alone! Go!

Luke: Okay. No, wait. Damian, what is going on?

Damian: Excuse me?

Luke: I just came here to talk to you.

Damian: But nobody asked you to do that.

Luke: Yeah, I know! They're all too busy telling me that I should just forget about you.

Damian: Well, then, maybe you should listen to them.

Luke: That's really funny, Damian, because I thought you'd want me to hear your side of the story. So either I can walk away right now or you can tell me what's really going on. It's your call.

Lily: Hey.

Noah: Hey. What are you guys doing here?

Lily: We're on our way to see Lucy.

Holden: Is Luke around? We wanted to see if he wanted to come with us.

Noah: No. Actually, he, um, said he had some errands to run.

Holden: "Errands"?

Noah: Yeah.

Holden: I see. These errands -- do they have anything to do with Damian?

Noah: Yeah. He, um, said he wanted to go hear Damian's side of the story.

Holden: His side or his spin?

Lily: Do you know where he went?

Noah: No.

Lily: I'm gonna call Damian.

Holden: Why? He knows that Luke's looking for him. What's he gonna do? This is what he's been wanting.

Lily: It's going straight to voicemail.

[Noah sighs]

Noah: I'm sorry.

Lily: It's okay. We'll, uh, go over to the police station, talk to Margo. Maybe Margo or Lucy will know where Damian is.

Holden: I hope so. I have a bad feeling about this, though.

Damian: Listen to me, Luke. You have to go, right now.

Luke: Damian, if something's wrong, maybe I can help.

Damian: You want to help? Then stop following me around! I don't owe you any explanations! You got it?! Go!

Luke: Yeah. You're right. We don't owe each other anything.

Damian: You Fredo? All right. Enough pleasantries. The guns -- you'll be able to get them down there onto the ship without being noticed? Good. You've used my ships before, haven't you?

Fredo: Least this time you'll be cut in, benefit from it.

Damian: Not likely. You made a big mistake trying to use me to smuggle your guns. Now very slowly put your hands up. Ow! Ow!

Luke: No.

[Grunting]

Luke: Damian.

Noah: Drop the knife. Now.

Lucinda: Lily, good. I'm glad you're here. Would you tell this niece of yours that there is no way that she can possibly count on Damian getting her out of here.

Lucy: Grandmother, don't listen to her.

Holden: Lucy, do you know where Damian is?

Lucy: No. I haven't seen him since yesterday. Why?

Holden: Because Luke's gone looking for him.

Lucinda: Oh, heavens. Why is he doing that?

Holden: Because he wants answers.

Lily: Damian said he had some sort of plan to help you. Do you know what it is?

Lucy: No. I have no idea what he had in mind.

Margo: Why can't anyone in your family stay out of police business?

Lily: Because it's not just a police matter. To Luke, it's personal.

Lucy: Oh, God. If Luke's gone after Damian because of something that I did --

Lucinda: Nobody's going after anybody. Now, Darling, did you -- did you try to reach Luke, Noah?

Lily: Both of their phones went straight to voicemail.

Holden: Given the situation, you could understand our concern.

Margo: Oh, I can certainly empathize --

Lucy: Margo, please. You have to do something. I don't want Luke to get into trouble because of some arrangement that I made with Damian months ago!

Lucinda: That is not going to happen. Is it, Margo?

Margo: Right, Lucinda. I'll see if I can track one or both of them down.

Holden: If you do --

Margo: And then I will let you know.

Lucinda: Thank you.

Margo: Yes.

Luke: Noah, what are you doing!

Noah: Luke, it's all right. I said drop the knife!

Damian: Noah, give me the gun.

Fredo: Punk kid, you are not gonna shoot me.

Noah: I'm warning you, drop it!

Fredo: They're dead.

Vienna: You didn't see how upset she was, Henry.

Henry: I know. I hate that. But the answer is still no.

Vienna: But you won't even consider it? She wants this baby so badly.

Henry: She wants a baby.

Vienna: No, no. She wants this. When she put her hand on the stomach, she said she still had the same feeling that this was her child.

Henry: I know, and she's probably gonna feel like that for a long time. But now that we know what we know, we cannot turn back the clock. It's not her child anymore. It's ours.

Vienna: I know, I know! But we could give this child to her, and then we could get pregnant again.

Henry: Sweetie, we could have 10 babies. It would not be Sven.

Vienna: You want 10 babies?

Henry: Oh, God, no. I just -- I want this child, okay?

Vienna: But so does she!

Henry: What about what she said the other day?

Vienna: It doesn't count.

Henry: No, it does count. She was -- she was right. It's a small town. We're gonna run into each other all the time. We're gonna know that's our child. All right? And in the off, off, off, off chance that we have more children, why deny them the possibility of knowing their own brother and sister?

Vienna: They could be cousins. They could still grow up together.

Henry: No. I'm sorry. I am not giving away our baby.

Brad: I know how much you wanted this baby. So did I. We talked about this.

Katie: No, we didnít. Not really. We were just reacting in the moment. We were angry and hurt that the truth had been kept from us.

Brad: The truth is its Henry and Vienna's kid.

Katie: No, it's not really. If you think about it, that baby only exists because of us.

[Brad sighs]

Brad: Katie, come on. Be reasonable. Do you really think that you can do this?

Katie: Yes. See? I didn't even have to think about it. That is how strongly I feel.

Brad: Okay, what about how Henry and Vienna feel?

Katie: Vienna said herself she wanted us to have the baby.

Brad: But we said no.

Katie: So if we can reconsider, then so can she.

Brad: What about Henry?

Katie: Well, obviously she's gonna have to talk to him about this.

Brad: I don't think he's gonna go for it.

Katie: Why are you being so negative?

Brad: Well, look, we -- we know the parents. I mean, more than that, they were our best friends.

Katie: Yeah. That's why we picked them!

Brad: They lied to us.

Katie: They didn't want to lie, Brad. They just freaked out. They didn't know how to handle the situation.

Brad: Maybe there's another reason why they didn't tell us!

Katie: Yeah. They thought we wouldn't want the baby if we knew the truth!

Brad: Exactly.

Katie: But I don't feel that way anymore! I changed my mind!

Brad: Can you change it back?

Katie: No, no. I'm not gonna change it back. I'm not. I want this baby. I want this. And if Henry and Vienna can change their minds, then so can you. Please, please, please, don't say no.

Brad: Okay.

Katie: You mean that?

Brad: Yeah, okay.

Katie: Okay. Oh, thank you, thank you, thank you. I love you so much. You have no idea how much this means to me. Okay, I'm gonna go change. Then we can give them the good news.

Damian: Noah, let me have it.

Luke: Noah, I can't believe you!

Noah: I kind of surprised myself there.

Luke: I didn't know you knew how to shoot a gun.

Noah: Growing up in the military bases with the colonel, every Saturday was reserved for target practice.

Luke: Sounds fun. Look, I don't mean to be ungrateful, but don't you think this little talent would have come in handy when we were being held captive by Zac and ZoŽ?

Noah: Uh, maybe if we'd gotten a hold of the gun.

Damian: I guess this makes us even, huh? Now do you understand why I didn't want you to be here? I didn't want you to get caught in the middle just in case something like this happened.

Luke: Yeah, but what is all this?

Margo: What the hell is going on here?

Damian: This is the man you've been looking for. Margo, meet Fredo.

Vienna: No, I -- I don't want to rest. I just want you -- please, just listen to me.

Henry: I -- I have been listening to you. You're guilty and heartsick about what happened to Brad and Katie.

Vienna: And responsible.

Henry: You're not responsible, okay? And we're not gonna resolve this by giving them our child.

Vienna: Yeah, we promised.

Henry: We promised when it was Brad's kid! Things have changed!

Vienna: No, they don't have to.

Henry: Sweetie, lo -- even if -- even if Katie has second thoughts, there's no way Brad will. He's not gonna raise another man's child, especially not mine.

Vienna: Why? What's wrong with yours?

Henry: Absolutely nothing!

[Vienna sighs]

Vienna: Listen, this -- this is what Katie really wants.

Henry: What about you? What do you want?

Vienna: It's not important what I want.

Henry: You know what I want?

Vienna: What do you want?

Henry: I want to see you kiss our little boy when he skins his knee or wipe our daughter's tears away when she falls off her bike. That's -- that's what I want.

[Vienna chuckles]

[Henry chuckles]

Vienna: I love you so much.

Henry: I love you more. I love you more.

[Henry chuckles]

[Knock on door]

Katie: Hi.

Brad: Hi.

Vienna: Hi. What are you doing here?

Katie: I'm sorry. I couldn't wait for you to call. Go on. Tell them.

Brad: I must really love my wife. Uh, this isn't easy, but obviously, I would do anything to make Katie happy. So the answer is -- yes. Yes.

Henry: Yes to what?

Brad: To Vienna's offer. To raise the baby after all. We want to do it.

Katie: Isn't it wonderful? Now things can go back to the way they were.

Lily: Luke! Oh, thank God you're all right. Where were you? Why didn't you answer my calls?

Luke: Mom, Mom, we're okay. Everything's fine, right?

Lucinda: Everything's fine? We're not buying that. Tell us. Tell us what happened, for heaven's sake. Ah! Never mind.

Holden: Why can't you leave my family alone?

Luke: Dad, its okay.

Damian: I promised I would help Lucy.

Lucinda: And -- and have you?

Damian: Yes.

Lucy: How?

Damian: Well, I knew the key to proving your innocence was finding Fredo. And I did.

Lucinda: How?

Damian: Well, I set up a meeting with him. The plan was to get Fredo to admit what he'd done and then bring him here to clear her name. But before I could do that, he managed to jump me.

Lucy: Oh, my God. Are you okay?

Damian: Thanks to Luke and Noah, I'm alive.

Lily: You were there?

Holden: Damian, why did you involve them in this?

Luke: No, he didnít. I didn't know what was happening. I just showed up.

Damian: I'm glad he did, 'cause he saved my life.

Luke: And then Noah saved both Damian and I from Fredo.

Lily: My God! Thank you, Noah.

Lucinda: Uh, so, uh, Damian, uh --

[Lucinda laughs]

Lucinda: You risked your life, you're telling us, and the life of these boys. And where is this notorious Fredo right now?

Damian: With Margo. She's getting a confession out of him as we speak.

Lucy: Oh, my God. You mean it's over?

[Lucy laughs]

Henry: Katie, Honey --

Katie: We should have just stuck with our plan all along.

Vienna: Katie, I -- I said I was gonna think about it.

Katie: What's there to think about? This was our agreement all along. You were gonna have our baby. That's why you're pregnant now -- so we could have a child.

Brad: You changed your minds.

Katie: No, they didn't change their minds. Right?

Vienna: Katie --

Katie: No. No, you wouldn't do that.

Vienna: If it was only up to me, then --

Katie: Oh, my God!

Vienna: It's not. It's not just up to me. It's also Henry and -- and Brad. He's had reservations.

Katie: No, but he's come around, right? Haven't you? Henry, please. Oh, please. You know how much this baby means to me.

Henry: I do, Sweetie. I know. And I would do anything in the world for you. But not this. I -- I canít.

Katie: No! So you're saying no? You're breaking your promise? You're just gonna refuse to give us our baby?

Henry: Bubbles, it's not your --

Katie: No, no, no! Don't you say that to me! Don't you say that to me!

Brad: It's all right. It's all right. It's all right. Okay? It's okay. It's all right. How could you do this? How could you do this? How could you get her hopes up like this again?

Vienna: I didn't mean to.

Brad: Yeah, you didn't mean to. You didn't mean to do a lot of things, did you?

Vienna: I'm sorry. I'm so sorry.

Katie: I want to go home.

Brad: Yeah. Come on.

Vienna: Katie --

Katie: Just be honest, Vienna, for once. Why did you even come over this morning?

Vienna: I wanted to help.

Brad: How is this helping? How is any of this helping?

Lily: Margo, what's happening? Can you tell us anything?

Margo: Oh, I can tell you many things. Despite what you two think, you are not cops. What you did was really stupid? And once again, you almost got yourselves killed.

Luke: We know, and we are sorry.

Margo: Mm-hmm. One more time. Just one more time. I either lock you up or sign you up. Have I made myself clear?

Noah: I speak for both of us. It will not happen again.

Margo: And you, Damian -- after all these years, you continue to take the law into your own hands.

Damian: I helped create the situation, Margo. The only thing that mattered to me was finding Fredo.

Margo: And you still can't apologize.

Lucinda: Uh, Margo. Might I inquire, did you get a confession out of Fredo?

Margo: Yes, we did. Lucy, you're free to go.

Lucinda: Oh!

Lucy: Thank you!

Margo: You are so very welcome. Now, all of you, please, get out of my station.

[Laughter]

Lucy: Luke, I am really sorry that you were in danger because of something that I did.

Luke: Oh, look, now that it's all over, it's totally cool.

Lucy: Yeah. You're never gonna let me forget it, are you?

Luke: No. I just can't believe that you and Damian were working together.

Lucy: Well, there's something you should know about that. The reason Damian agreed to help me was because of you, Luke. He wanted to show you --

Luke: That -- that he changed. Yeah. I've heard that.

Lucy: It's true. When he was helping those people, he was really devoted to making their lives better. It meant something to him.

Holden: And the hero just walks away.

Damian: Oh, please, Holden. I don't want to fight with you today.

Holden: You think because everything turned out okay that everyone can just look the other way?

Damian: Excuse me?

Holden: Once again, Damian, you put Luke in danger -- terrible danger. Tell me, what's it gonna take to get you out of his life for good?

Damian: I didn't know Luke was gonna come looking for me today.

Holden: That's the problem. You never think ahead.

Damian: You know what? I don't have to listen to this.

Holden: When are you gonna realize that you are the biggest threat to his safety?

Damian: I'd give my life for my son.

Holden: Well, then, why is he always getting caught in the cross fire?

Damian: Today was an accident, Holden!

Holden: There have been a lot of those lately, Damian. Whenever he's around you, bad things happen.

Luke: Dad, it's all right. I'm fine.

Holden: This time.

Luke: Damian tried to get me to leave. He said everything he could to make me go. I chose to stay. This isn't his fault.

Holden: You don't need to make excuses for him.

Luke: Dad, Damian did exactly what he said he was going to. He helped Lucy. Can't we just be grateful?

Holden: You can be grateful. I'm done.

Brad: What can I do?

Katie: Just make it stop.

Brad: What?

Katie: I can't stop imagining what our baby would have looked like. I keep thinking about what it would have felt like to hold him. I just lost something that was so real to me, and I just feel like a piece of my heart's been ripped out.

Brad: I know I've said this before -- but it's just gonna take some time.

Katie: I don't feel like the pain's ever gonna go away!

Brad: It will. I promise, it will.

Katie: It's just us again.

Brad: Is that so bad, just you and me?

Katie: We were supposed to be a family.

Vienna: Katie hates me. She -- she'll never be my friend again.

Henry: Sweetie, she had to know that what she was asking was never going to happen.

Vienna: What are we gonna do now?

Henry: We're gonna focus on being the best parents that we can be, put our family first.

[Vienna laughs]

Vienna: We're gonna be a family.

[Henry laughs]

Henry: I got something. I was gonna save it to show it to you later, but I think, uh -- I think now is as good a time as any.

Vienna: What?

Henry: I got some things for the baby.

[Toy rattles]

[Henry laughs]

Vienna: You did?

Henry: Yeah, yeah, I did. And this guy. I -- I know times are rough right now. They probably will be for -- for a long time to come. But we have -- we've got so much to look forward to, and I don't want us to lose sight of that. Hi, Mommy.

[Both laugh]

Vienna: Well, hi, Daddy.

Henry: Daddy.

[Henry chuckles]

Noah: You know, if anything had happened to you --

Luke: But it didn't, Noah, thanks to you. And I feel the same way. Don't you forget that.

Noah: So, do you think we've fulfilled our quota of life-threatening situations yet?

Luke: Oh, yes! No more bad guys, I promise.

Noah: Luke.

Luke: Damian.

Damian: Please sit. I didn't mean to intrude.

Luke: No. Lucy told me why you decided to help her. It was to prove to me that you've changed.

Damian: I wish she -- she hadn't told you that.

Luke: No. I'm glad she did, because it gives me the chance to tell you that -- that you can stop.

Damian: Yeah, I understand. You two take care of each other.

Luke: No, donít. Damian -- Damian, you can stop because I believe you. You're not the guy that I thought you were.

Damian: Luke --

Luke: I have spent so long being afraid of you and not trusting you.

Damian: I gave you good reason not to trust me.

Luke: Yeah, but I know that whoever that man was is long gone. After everything you've done for Noah and for Lucy and for me, all I can say, Damian, is thank you.

Damian: No, thank you.

Holden: Come here, you.

[Lily chuckles]

[Lily groans]

Holden: You're so tense.

Lily: I know. Mm! Right there. Oh, yes.

Holden: How's that?

Lily: You are forever my hero.

Holden: That I know.

Lily: Mm.

[Lily chuckles]

Lily: Just what kind of massage am I getting here?

Holden: You just relax and enjoy it.

Lily: I will. Oh! I am so glad that we don't have to worry about Damian anymore. I'm so happy that everything's out in the open.

Holden: Yeah, until the next surprise rolls around.

On the next "As the World Turns" --

Jade: I think that one's yours.

Hunter: Oh, my mistake.

[Jade gasps]

Hunter: Oh, I am so sorry.

Craig: What are you asking of me?

Dusty: For a place in his life.

Craig: Let's just assume that I would make room for Dusty in Johnny's life.

Carly: Yeah.

Craig: Is that guy someone that you can fall in love with?
