At Jack and Carlys house, Carly and Jack arrive home from Rosanna's wedding. Carly cant believe that Rosanna actually married Craig, and she is determined to change her sisters mind and get her to divorce Craig. Jack thinks that Rosanna is a very stubborn woman and once she makes up her mind to do something nobody can change it. Carly shows Jack the picture of her father and tells him the more she looks at it, the more she is convinced that Parker is right: her father is standing outside Mabels restaurant. Carly and Jack wonder if her father was ever in Oakdale, but Carly doesnt remember her father ever mentioning the town. Hannah sits at the top of the stairs and listens to Carly and Jacks conversation.
At Gwens place, Gwen doesnt think that Will pretending to be the father of her baby is fair to him because it could cause trouble for him with his family. Will tells Gwen he wants to help her with the baby, and telling people he is the father is easier, especially since Casey suspects the truth but is choosing to believe Will is the father rather then admitting the truth to himself. Gwen remains determined to tell Casey the truth because she is convinced he will discover it for himself sooner or later.
Outside Tom and Margos house, Celia continues to be bothered by the fact that Will is the father of Gwens baby. Celia thinks that Will was lonely and needed someone.

Barbara comes by to pick up prom pictures and is stunned when she hears Gwen is pregnant. Casey confirms for Barbara that the news is true, and Barbara thinks its to be expected from a girl like Gwen. Celia is offended and tells Barbara that Gwen is a nice person. Barbara explains to Celia that kids like her, Casey and Will had parents to shelter them from girls like Gwen. Barbara wonders who the babys father is, and Celia tells her it is best for Barbara to ask Will that question. Barbara gets angry at the implication that Will is the father of Gwens baby. Margo arrives and tells Barbara to come down and stop shouting at Casey and Celia.
At Gwens place, Will continues to try and persuade Gwen not to tell Casey the truth about the baby. Gwen doesnt understand why Will wants to keep the truth a secret, since the truth would drive Celia away from Casey and straight to him. Will denies that he would ever take Celia away from Casey, because Casey is his best friend and Celia loves him. Gwen figures out that Will is trying to spare Celia pain by pretending to be the father. Will offers to pay for an apartment for Gwen and give her money so she can quit work and take care of herself and the baby.
At Jack and Carlys place, Jack and Carly question Hannah about the picture of Carlys dad. Hannah tells them she doesnt remember the picture and she has no idea when or where the picture was taken.

At the hospital, the doctor tells Lucinda that preliminary test results show the lump in her breast is malignant, and they need to do more tests to determine the stage of the cancer. The doctor must leave, so Meg explains the cancer stages to Lucinda. Meg also tells Lucinda she has several treatment options, depending on the stage of the cancer. Lucinda tells Meg not to say anything to Sierra and Lily.
At the farm, Lily and Sierra decide to hack into Lucindas computer to find out her secret.
Outside the Hughes house, Casey and Celia tell Margo that the information about Gwen is true, because a person who should know told them about the pregnancy. An angry Barbara leaves, vowing to handle the situation herself. Margo asks Celia to take the groceries in the house so she can talk to Casey. Margo asks Casey if he would tell her if he and Celia were in the same situation as Gwen and Will. Casey is offended by the question and says he and Celia have not gone far enough to be in that situation. Casey assures his mother he would tell her the truth if he ever got a girl pregnant.
