Lucinda, Lily, Holden and the kids arrive to welcome Rose. Lily introduces Rose to her new niece Natalie. After some convincing Paul agrees to come home with Rose to Lily and Holden’s house. Lucinda asks Rose when she is coming back to Walsh Enterprises as Vice President, but Rose explains she has decided to do something different and open up a beauty salon (Paul mentions that Lucinda is speechless). Inside the house, Paul tells Lily he is not sure about his future with Rose. Outside, Rose tells Holden that Paul still makes her heart flutter, but they have drifted apart. Alone with Rose, Paul tells her he will help her with anything regarding her new business. Rose tells Paul she never took his ring off while she was away, but now she doesn’t feel right wearing it as they don’t know where they stand. Rose and Paul ask Lily to hold her ring for them. Lily agrees.

Emma asks her if she is making the right decision. Rosanna says this is her one chance at happiness. Emma, skeptical of Craig, asks if she will have a pre-nuptial agreement. Rosanna says she will not as she has faith in Craig. Mike arrives next and Rosanna gives him the keys back to Molly’s apartment, explaining she is marrying Craig. Rosanna explains that she realized how much Craig meant to her when he (Craig) told her the truth about his affair with Carly. Rosanna tells Mike how Carly visited her to tell her she is pregnant and wants her to be a part of her children’s lives. Rosanna tells Mike she will be the best aunt anyone ever had. Mike kisses Rosanna goodbye and wishes her good luck.

Carly insists to Craig the baby she is carrying is Jack’s. Craig doesn’t believe her and says this lie is too big to contain. Craig tells Carly his relationship with Rosanna is at stake due to this lie, and he will not risk losing Rosanna, so he intends to tell her the truth. Carly tells Craig that she did not ask him to lie for her and feels he must keep quiet. Craig tells Carly he will never rescue her again and needs nothing in return from her. Carly tells Craig that he is not himself and Rosanna squeezed all the life out of him. Craig leaves, saying he will tell Rosanna and hopes she forgives him. Carly tells Craig that he will destroy everyone she loves, especially Jack. As Carly screams for Craig not to do it, she is hit with a sharp abdominal pain. Craig comes to help and drives Carly to emergency.

Mike explains how Henry broke into Molly’s apartment a few months ago and took her cancelled check. Henry insists he did not take anything, but says he will tell Jack “everything.” Mike interrupts Henry to say that Molly, at the time did not press charges against Henry and she still feels this way. Henry is given the ok to leave. Jack tells Mike he wants to help him, as they are practically family. As Henry leaves, Mike grabs him and warns him to not tell anyone the truth, or else.
