At the Lakeview, Carly calls the police station looking for Jack but is told he isnt there, so she leaves a message for him to call her back when he gets there. Carly looks at the blurry picture of the woman with her father, then she looks up for a minute and sees Henry arrive at the bar and order a drink.
Carly asks him to come sit with her and offers to buy him a drink. Carly asks Henry to help her find the woman in the picture, and if he finds her she will pay him enough money to keep him in dry martinis for the rest of his life.
At Metro, Jack meets with Iris Dumbrowski, the woman in the picture, and offers to buy her a drink. Jack explains to Iris that his wife is Carly Tenney and that he knows the awful secret that Carly and her father share with her. Iris gets mad and gets up to leave because Ray and "that brat" caused her enough trouble already. Jack asks her to sit back down and explains to her that he understands her pain. Iris tells Jack that Carly was trouble, and she will always be trouble. Jack explains that Carly was just a kid and she has no memory about what happened that day. Jack tells Iris that they have three kids and a happy life. Jack asks Iris to help him keep Carly from learning the truth, because he loves her and he doesnt want anything to cause her pain.
At the hospital, Hal arrives to check on how Jennifer and the baby are doing and gets angry when he sees that Paul and Emily are also there. Paul tries to tell him about the condition of Jennifer and the baby, but Hal doesnt want to speak to or see Paul and Emily right now.

Hal goes upstairs to Jennifers room while Will stays downstairs to make some phone calls.
At Gwens apartment, Celia arrives with food and flowers for Gwen, but Gwen isnt hungry and she doesnt feel like having company. Celia tells Gwen she must eat something, so Gwen accepts and allows her into the apartment.

At the hospital, Mike starts to take Jennifer to see the baby in the nursery, but when he steps into the hallway he sees the doctors working on the baby and rolls Jennifer back inside her room.

Mike explains to Jennifer it's best they go see the baby later. Dusty arrives and explains to Jennifer that the doctors are examining the baby, and she will be able to see him when they are finished examining him. Mike and Dusty step into the hallway and are informed by the nurse that the baby is in respiratory distress.

At Fairwinds, Rosanna walks into a virtual toy store in her living room and wonders why Craig is suddenly so excited about the adoption.

Henry wonders why Jack isnt helping her with the investigation. Carly explains to Henry that Jack is helping her, but she needs his friends in low places to help her find this woman. Henry promises to think about Carlys offer. Carly tells Henry she is going to scan the picture so he can have a copy of it. Henry wonders how Carly is so sure he will accept her offer.

At Gwens place, Celia asks Gwen if Will was with her when she gave birth to the baby. Gwen tells Celia that Will has been a great guy during her entire pregnancy--not like Casey. Celia keeps pushing Gwen to tell her why she hates Casey so much. Gwen thinks it's time that Celia learned what type of guy Casey really is, and Celia cant understand why Gwen is saying these things about Casey. Gwen tells Celia to force Casey to tell her the truth, and if he refuses she should tell him that she (Gwen) would tell her the truth.
At the hospital, Casey demands to know why Will kept the truth from him and pretended to be the father of his baby. Will blasts Casey and tells him that deep in his heart he knew the truth all along, he just didnt want to face it. Casey wonders why Will lied and almost ruined his life to protect a girl like Gwen, who isnt worth the trouble. Will gets angry and makes it clear that Casey shouldnt talk about Gwen that way.

Paul arrives, and Dusty tells him that the baby has died. Mike asks Hal to stay with Jennifer while she sleeps because he must go fill out some paperwork. Hal goes out into the hallway and asks Dusty what is wrong, because he is a cop and can tell when something is wrong. Dusty tells Hal Jennifers baby has died. Hal is shocked because he thought the baby was small but strong.
At Gwens apartment, Barbara arrives and takes a cigarette out of Gwens mouth because she doesnt want her to kill her grandson. Once Barbara steps into the apartment she can tell Gwen has given birth to the baby. Gwen explains that Will was with her and the baby was small, and that she doesnt know his current condition.

Gwen also tells Barbara she isnt moving in with her. Barbara tells Gwen she can live wherever she wants to, but she intends to make sure her grandson is raised to live in decent society, and nobody will be able to stop her.
