Anna is home looking at her sonogram when a knock is at the door. It is Tad and Jake. They have information to tell her about David. Tad tells her that David went to Baltimore for some reason after the crash. Then he came to Pine Valley in a car. He might have passed the crash and found Maria, who should have been dead from the crash. They think that David may have experimented on her. They have no evidence that he did any experimentation on Maria. She needed surgery at the time and transfusions and the hospitals didn't take in anyone like Maria. That means that David stole Maria's life. What can she arrest him for? She was on death's door and then she lived alone for 5 years by herself. Some of the statutes for these crimes have expired. She is looking for options, but they don't have any. Jake has to get back to the hospital and he leaves. Tad wants to look at the other options that they have. She shows him a sonogram. She wasn't supposed to be able to have another child but that is wrong. How ironic. She was never afraid of complicated things. When she was pregnant with Robin, things were never perfect, but she had her daughter and that was the best decision that she had ever made. To hell with David. She is going to have that baby. Tad makes the suggestion that it would be best if David could get put away until her child is an adult. She wishes that were true... Later, David comes home and finds Tad there. He is suspicious. She lies that they have an airtight case against him and he'll get a stiff sentence. So she suggests that he flee now before he gets prosecuted.
