At the Walsh mansion, Sierra calls the spa that Lucinda said she was going to and gets more worried when she is informed that Lucinda hasnt checked in yet. Holden arrives and Sierra shares her concerns about Lucinda with him. Sierra tells Holden she is afraid her mother is running away from the cancer instead of staying to fight it. Sierra explains to Holden that Lucinda wanted to stop her chemotherapy because she was losing her hair and having strong side effects. Sierra informs Holden that she and Lily thought they had talked her out of stopping her chemotherapy, but now she has gone to a spa--only nobody at the spa can find her.
In Mexico, Lucinda arrives at Clinica de la Vida (Clinic of Life) to consider treatment options. Lucinda tells the nurse her name is Mrs. Washington.
At Katies place, Henry stands up and gets ready to tell Katie and Mike he feels better, but then he looks at Maddie and grabs his back and yells in pain. Katie and Mike ease him back down on the couch and rush to the kitchen to get Henry an ice pack. Maddie is worried about Henry and thinks his relapse is all her fault. Henry tells Maddie to sit beside him and whispers "gotcha" to her. Maddie smiles because she thinks that Henry has decided to fight for Katies love. Henry makes it clear to Maddie that he is only faking until he can find a permanent place to live, so she can stay in Oakdale.
At Carly and Jacks place, Carly, Parker and Rory arrive home from Parkers dentist appointment. Parker shows Carly all the cool things the dentist gave him so he wont get any more cavities. Parker is excited about his toothbrush, toothpaste, dental floss and tongue scamper, and because he doesnt have to go to school today. Carly sends Parker to the kitchen for some milk and one cookie while she puts Rory down for a nap. Gwen arrives and Carly takes the baby out of his carrier and holds him. Carly tells Gwen to leave because she has no right to be there. Gwen shows Carly a court order that allows her to visit the baby. Carly thinks the court order is a fake and again tells Gwen to leave, but Gwen tells Carly she isnt leaving until she spends time with her baby. Carly makes it clear that a judge will never give her custody of Rory. Gwen informs Carly that her lawyer is on his way to make sure that she spends time with her son. Carly asks Gwen to wait outside until her lawyer arrives, if he is coming at all. Carly hears a crash in the kitchen and Parker calls her, so Carly rushes to the kitchen after putting the baby down in his carrier. Gwen takes advantage of Carlys distraction and takes the baby out of his carrier, telling him she is his mommy and walking outside with him. The crash in the kitchen turns out to be the cookie jar, which Parker accidentally broke. Parker apologizes for breaking the cookie jar and Carly tells him it's okay, the important thing is he wasnt hurt.. Carly sends Parker to play in the backyard. Carly panics and thinks that Gwen has kidnapped Rory when she notices they are both not inside the house.
At the clinic in Mexico, Dr. Hendrix gives Lucinda a thick folder to read through which details treatment options and includes client testimonials. Lucinda is surprised when the doctor leaves her alone to read the folder and tells her he will answer any questions when she has finished reading it.
At Carly and Jacks place, Carly finds Gwen on the porch with the baby and escorts her back inside the house, demanding that Gwen give her the baby. Gwen gives Carly Rory and she puts him back inside his carrier. Carly accuses Gwen of kidnapping the baby, an accusation which Gwen thinks is silly because she is getting the baby back legally anyway. Carly again reminds Gwen that she will never get the baby back. Carly informs Gwen that Casey denied he was the father of the baby and has taken a paternity test, which will prove that she lied to the court. Carly doesnt think the court will look kindly on someone who lied about the father of her baby. Gwen explains to Carly that of course Casey lied in front of his parents, because he didnt want them to know the truth. Gwen is happy that Casey took the paternity test because it will prove he is the father of the baby. Carly again demands that Gwen leave the house but, once again, Gwen refuses to do so, and Carly grabs Gwens arm to take her to the door. Jack arrives and wonders what is going on, and Carly explains that she is going to throw Gwen out of the house and call the police because Gwen tried to take the baby. Gwen explains to Jack that she only took the baby outside to spend some time alone, without Carlys judgmental looks towards her. Gwen gives Jack the court order for visitation with the baby. Jack reads it and, despite Carly telling him the order is fake, he tells her it looks real. Jack explains to Gwen that this court order is for supervised visits and she shouldnt come alone. Jack looks at Gwen and can tell she knew the court order was for supervised visitation but decided to come alone anyway. Gwen tells Jack her lawyer is on his way, and she also tells Jack she showed the court order to Carly, but Carly didnt believe her. Jack decides to call the courthouse to ease Carlys doubts and make sure the order isnt fake. Gwen tells Carly she has no right to treat her so badly because she has every right to see her child. Carly screams at Gwen that she gave up her parental rights and Rory is Rosannas child, and until Rosanna gets better Rory will stay with them. Cass arrives and wonders what Carly is doing to his client.
Outside Katies place, Katie decides to wait to tell Henry the truth because he has had a relapse. Mike doesnt agree with Katies decision but goes along with it anyway.

Henry guesses that Mike and Katie are back together, and they both respond at the same time that they are back together. Katie asks if Henry is okay, and he responds that she and Mike are meant to be together and that all he has ever wanted is her happiness. Katie gives Henry a hug before Mike takes her to work.

Holden admits to Sierra he is beginning to worry about Keiths mysterious medical supply deliveries, since he is more involved with Luke now that Luke is taking flying lessons. Sierra wonders if Holden is concerned about Keith being involved with Luke, or Lily. Holden admits it is a little of both, if Keith is involved in something dangerous. Sierra thinks Holden is looking for trouble where there isnt any trouble.
At the clinic, Lucinda asks the doctor if she can talk to some patients but is told that her privacy would be compromised if she talked to patients. Lucinda goes with the doctor on a tour of the clinic.
At Carly and Jacks place, Carly again tells Gwen that she is a liar and the court would never give a baby to someone who lied in court. Carly is positive that if she digs a little she can find other things in Gwens past about which she has lied.

At the clinic, the doctor assures Lucinda that her privacy will be protected, so she decides to try one treatment to see if it works. Lucinda is tired and decides to rest.

At Jack and Carlys place, Jack agrees to set up a time for Gwen to visit the baby, as long as Cass promises to stick to the terms of the court order. Cass and Gwen talk outside of the house after they have left Carly and Jack. Gwen wonders if it's true that it doesnt matter who the babys father is. Cass assures her it's true, but as long as Casey is proven to be the father, the case is a slam-dunk. Carly doesnt want to allow Gwen to see the baby, but Jack reminds her there are certain things they dont want coming out in court. Jack thinks it's best to play nice with Gwen and not provoke her to dig for dirt on them. Jack promises he will supervise the visits and make sure Carly is never in the same room with Gwen, since Carly told him she loathes Gwen so much. Jack gives Carly a kiss and leaves to talk to Gwen. Carly tells Rory that he will stay with them and nobody will ever take him away. Iris arrives to ask Carly for more money, because she wont get off cheap for killing her son.
At Als Diner, Mike is happy he and Katie will have a normal life again. Katie thinks Maddie will get off his case because Henry accepts their relationship now.
