Jack comes to see Rosanna. He has something to talk to her about. He pulled Di Grassi’s credit cards and knows that the man, who is definitely Rosanna’s friend, has been working in Canada. That is a weird coincidence Jack finds. Why is it that Di Grassi has been working in Canada, which is where Cabot and his mother lives.

Jordan serves Carly and Barbara something refreshing to drink while they look over her sketches. Barbara has a funny look on her face when she looks at the sketches. Carly sees the look thinking that Barbara doesn’t like what she sees. Barbara says that she would prefer to have Jordan look at the designs. She will not admit to Carly that she has a problem seeing.

Kim tells the girl that Chris loves her and would like her to be honest. Alison would like to be honest.

Chris arrives wondering if there is a problem. He knows that his mother is worried about him working alone in the relationship, and he defends Alison working only one job. He wants his mother to respect his decision to work extra and not let Alison do it. Kim sees that she has overstepped, and she heads out.

Chris hates that his mother treats him like a 3-year-old. Alison knows that Kim only wants the best. Chris knows that, but his only concern is his relationship with Alison.

Ben would have hoped that he and Jessica would have had more discussion about having a baby. Jessica says that she made a mental checklist. She found that the negative sides didn’t outweigh the things that really matter. She remembers when Bonnie was a baby, and she wants that back. He sees that she has been doing a lot of remembering. She is quick to say that her decision hasn’t to do with Bonnie being gone. She reminds Ben that she loves him, and that she would like to have a baby with him. She wants Ben to say what is in his heart. He is lost for words. Having a baby is like putting a baby back in a bottle. Once it is said, it is all that you can think about. This morning he got to the hospital, and he went to labor and delivery. He was looking at the infants, and he was thinking of the science of it all. However, that is not the important thing. Life is about faith and miracles. She tells him that she is going to make them a miracle. He will do the same.

Carly wants to know more about Jordan. He tells her that he went to Paris and tried to get a job there. He didn’t get it. He heard that BRO was rebuilding and he wanted to be a part of that.

Rosanna hates that Jack is asking her a lot of questions about Cabot. That hurts. She says that she knows that she can’t have Cabot back, and would like to drop this line of questioning. Jack says that he needs to know what she is up to, or he is going to have to investigate more. If that happens, he can’t help her then. He will find out what she is hiding. She decides to tell him what is going on. She is in a lot of pain. She remembers that she had to give up her child, and she says that is her secret, and that is all that she is hiding. She has given him no choice in the matter. He will get all the information that he can. If she doesn’t tell him what he needs to know, he will have no choice but to expose whatever it is that she is up to, and then it will be too late.

Ben and Jessica see the doctor and discuss having a baby. She is in a new group now for having a baby, and conception will be more difficult. They have to check that her body is going to cooperate. They will do some blood work.

Rosanna decides that she has to confess all to Jack. She admits to hiring Di Gassi. She gave him the floor plans, and sent him over to the house. She wanted something there. She couldn’t do this herself. She wanted to put a little fear in Craig. She wanted Cabot’s hairbrush set. She used to read the boy a story and brush his hair. She didn’t want Craig to see her. She sent Di Gassi to Canada because she wanted Cabot’s mother to have the brush set. She thought that if the mother brushed Cabot’s hair, he would remember Rosanna. That is her crime. She loves her child, and she can’t stop it. She bent the law to send Cabot something that would remind him of her. This is very private to her. This is between Rosanna and Cabot. She wanted no one to know. Jack is sorry to have upset her. She is set off very easily these days. Jack asks her to come to the house to see the kids soon. She would love to do that.

Jordan asks if they are still on for dinner. Jennifer says that everything is on schedule. They make a date. Jordan says that he will bring the wine. Jennifer beams at the thought of cooking this man dinner.

Outside the office, Carly can hear everything that has been said inside, and she smiles coyly to herself.

Alison explains to Chris that Kim only felt that she should be helping with the bills. Chris wants this dropped. He would like to see Alison take some classes, and dive into something. He believes in her. Chris says that if his mother says anything more on this subject, they will be having a very stern conversation.

Carly goes to see Rosanna who tells her that Jack was over to visit. Carly says that she was with Jordan that day. Rosanna is making her sister do this to be discreet.

Rosanna wants her sister to understand and respect her privacy. Carly tells that Jordan is back at BRO. Rosanna already knew that. Why did he go back? Carly says that Jordan might be into Jennifer. She saw Jennifer, and she was on fire for Jordan. When a redhead puts on a red dress, she is saying, “Don’t put the fire out.” Rosanna panics at the news. Jennifer is clearly head over heels, and ready to light the match!

Chris would like to make love, but Alison stops him to let him that he has changed her life, and that everything that she has done has been for him. He understands that.

The examination is over. So far things look good for Jessica. There are more tests to look at later. There is a high chance that Jessica will be able to conceive. There will be tests for Ben too. He is offered a plastic jar. He is a doctor; he knows what to do.

Jennifer tells her mother that she was being very obvious pretending to be busy so that her daughter gets to dine with Jordan alone. Jennifer wants to be careful so that Jordan doesn’t find her too desperate.

Carly still would like to know all that Rosanna has planned. Rosanna will not budge. Carly needs to know what Rosanna will do about this dinner that is coming up.
