Barbara and Jessica are having lunch together. Barbara tries to talk Jessica into pleading her case to Hal for her. She needs to see Will so badly. Jessica is having none of that. She will not talk to Hal on Barbara's behalf. Jessica advises Barbara to get on board with this new shrink and hope that he can reach Will, or Barbara will be seeing will through a six inch glass on visiting days for the rest of her life. Barbara says she just wants Will to get better and come home. Jessica tells her to prove that by cleaning up the mess she has made of her life.
Hal and Jennifer are discussing Barbara being a part of the family again at the station. Jennifer has real hope for Barbara. She believes Barbara has learned her lesson. Hal is not so easy to convince. He says that Barbara must earn her place back into this family. Not just by loving Will, but by loving all her children and treating them all the same. Including Paul. Jennifer comments that Paul will need to bury the hatchet also. Paul walks up and hears Jennifer say this. He informs both of them that this little 'family reunion' will never happen.
Paul loves Will, and he will do anything for him. Just looking at Barbara makes him sick though. He tells them that Will is sick, but he isn't an idiot. He would see right through them. Hal gives up and goes to get Paul's personal items. Jennifer reminds Paul that he wasn't there this morning for Will when he was taken away to the institution. Paul feels really bad about that. Jennifer tries to convince Paul that Will needs his 'whole' family. Paul still will not consider making up with Barbara. Not after all she has done and gotten away with. Jennifer tells him that for Wills sake, they must all move on. The only way to do that is to forgive. Jennifer leaves Paul to think about that as Hal brings Paul his personal items. Hal offers to have one of the officers take Paul home, but Paul thinks it better for his neighbors if he takes a cab home. Paul tells Hal how badly he feels for not being there for Will this morning. Hal assures him that he will see Will again, he is just happy to see Paul a little more conscious than last night. Paul apologizes for last night. Hal tells him not to let it happen again.
Simon spent the night at the church he and Katie got married in. He is doing a little work around the place to thank the minister. The minister asks if he was too cold over the night.

Mike goes to see Katie at her place. They admit to each other that they didn't sleep very well. Mike is very excited and tells Katie that he has good news. He got a call back from the job he applied for in Costa Rica. He is supposed to go down there for a few meetings in a few weeks. He suggests they go down there together a little early. Katie is not happy to hear this. She storms to the front door and tells Mike to get out! He doesn't understand. She is upset because she asked for some space and now he wants her to run away with him. Mike explains that he just wanted her to go away for a vacation, nothing more. She softens up to him then and tells him it would be nice, but she will not leave Simon until she has this all figured out.
Katie admits to Mike that she is split down the middle. Mike is happy to hear that because it means he still has a chance. She assures him that he does by showing him that she is still wearing his ring. She cautions him though that she has not made her decision yet, and if he wants to go to Costa Rica without her she will understand. He tells her that he will take his chances hanging around Oakdale. He happily leaves her alone.
In Alison's hospital room, she tells Susan that she will hurt forever. She is very upset, she just wants her baby back. Susan leaves the room as Aaron comes in to see how Alison is doing. She tells him that she was only trying to do what was right for everyone. She wanted a fresh start with her baby, and then he could go back to Lucy and Chris could go back to practicing medicine without dealing with all this. Aaron tries to comfort her, but she isn't ready for comfort yet. Susan returns to the room with an officer and asks Alison if she feels like answering a few questions. Aaron offers to wait outside. The officer asks Alison to tell her what happened. Alison does her best to try to remember and to tell the officer all that she can remember. The officer keeps asking her if Chris was threatening her. She admits that she was afraid of him because she thought he was going to take the baby away from her. When the officer asks if Chris had anything to do with her fall, Susan tells the officer that she thinks that is enough for now.

Outside Alison's room Bob arrives wanting to know what is going on. Chris explains to his father that Alison fell and lost a lot of blood but she will be okay now. Bob demands to know why his son is being held there like a criminal. Susan steps out in time to tell him that they are holding Chris because he chased her daughter down and made her miscarry their grandchild. Bob pulls Chris aside and wants the whole story. Chris tells him his side of the whole thing. He only found out yesterday by accident that the baby was his. Bob wants to know why Aaron thinks Chris is responsible for Alison's fall. Chris tells him that it is all a misunderstanding. After the officer questions Alison, she comes back out to question Chris again. Bob and Chris are both getting a little tired of the officer's questions and her attitude. She won't tell them if Alison told her that Chris didn't push her. Aaron repeats that he has told them all they need to know. He saw Chris push her, and it isn't the first time. The officer gets more interested if this has happened before. Chris tries to explain, but Aaron keeps turning things around and confusing the cop. Chris gets very anxious and rushes into Alison's room with all in tow.
