In Mexico, Holden and Lily arrive at the clinic and become even more worried when Lucinda informs them that Keith went out to look for Luke, and now they are both missing.
At the police station, Dusty arrives to talk to Hal about Jennifers drug use. Hal doesnt have time to talk to Dusty, but he makes some time for him because he wants to talk about Jennifer.
At Java, Jennifer thanks Emily for pushing Paul into working with her and Barbara on their new company. Jennifer gives Paul a kiss on the cheek and thanks Emily before she leaves. Emily explains to Paul that Gwen fell apart in court and may never get custody of the baby. Emily thinks Paul should work with Jennifer as a way to keep an eye on her, so she wont go near the baby.
At Gwens apartment, Gwen explains to Will that even though the judge didnt make a ruling against her, he gave Carly temporary custody of the baby. Gwen feels like she will never get custody of her child because the social workers will decide that she isnt fit to raise a child.
At Carly and Jacks place, Carly arrives home and goes upstairs.. Iris gets in the house because Carly left the door unlocked. Carly comes back downstairs and wonders what Iris is doing there.
Iris demands that Carly give her more money, or she will make sure the baby is taken away from her that night. Carly tells Iris to go ahead and tell the judge about her baby brother; she doubts that even that story will change the judges mind, because Rorys birth mother isnt fit to raise him. Iris thinks that the judge will place the baby in foster care after she tells him what happened to her little boy. Carly fires back at Iris with her own threat: if she goes to the judge, she will go to the cops and put her in jail for extorting money from her.
At Gwens place, Gwen wants Will to say he believes that Carly set her up, but when Will doesnt say a word Gwen yells at him to tell her what he thinks and to not just stand there quietly. Will tells Gwen he will say whatever will make her feel better. Gwen gets even more angry at Wills comments and tells Will she thought they were friends, but he let her down by not believing she is telling the truth about Carly. Will is hurt and admits that Gwen should have been honest with him about where she got the money. Gwen yells at Will that the money doesnt matter anymore, because she used it to pay the lawyer. Will yells that he didnt want to have Barbara as a part of his life, but he was willing to help her get the money to pay for the lawyer because they are friends and he wanted to help her. Gwen thinks Will was so involved in her life because it is even easier than dealing with his messed-up life. Gwen thinks their friendship cant work because they ignore important things about each other.. Gwen says she ignores that he was in a mental institution, and he ignores her when she thinks that she was set up by Carly. Gwen tells Will she is tired of his help and tired of always feeling like she let him down, and most of all she is tired of him not believing she was set up by Carly. Will tells Gwen a person would have to be crazy to believe her story. Gwen lays down on the bed and starts sobbing.
At Java, Emily tells Paul about her suspicions that Carly put a drug in Gwens water so she would fall asleep while she was taking care of the baby. Emily also tells Paul that the tests on the water came back negative, and she is sure Carly covered her tracks by switching the water bottles.

Lucinda tells Holden that Keith left her with a gun and went to look for Luke, but now they are both missing. Lucinda thought it best to return to the clinic and call the police. Lily blasts Lucinda, saying that if she hadnt forced Keith to come to Mexico for her treatment he wouldnt have cancelled Lukes flying lesson, and Luke would not have stowed away on the plane. Lucinda asks Lily if her boyfriend told her the reason why she was able to force him to come to Mexico with her.
