At Deer Brook, Barbara wants Jennifer to lie and say that the drugs in her system caused her to be confused and think her baby was alive but she knows the baby is dead. Barbara thinks that if Jennifer tells the doctors what they want to hear they will release her from the hospital and she can go home to rest.

At the hospital, Dusty tells Meg he doesn’t think Jennifer’s baby is alive but he wants to prove to her the baby is dead so that she can get better. Dusty asks Meg if a mother’s instinct could be right and could Jennifer know if her baby was alive or dead. Meg tells Dusty that a mother’s instinct can be very strong but that isn’t the case with Jennifer because she is delusional due to the drugs she was taking and that is what caused her to think Rory was her child. Dusty wonders if the hospital could have made a mistake because he has seen cases on the news where hospitals have made mistakes and given people the wrong baby. Meg tries to persuade Dusty that Jennifer’s story can’t be true because hospitals now have tight security because of what happened in those other cases. Meg points out that Jennifer is delusional because she was mixing anti depressants with Methanfedimine and that combination is enough to make anyone see little green men on their shoulder. Meg also points out that Jennifer is making up the story to ease the pain of losing her baby. Dusty still thinks he must do something to help get Jennifer out of Deer Brook because she doesn’t belong in that place because she needs some place to get clean. Meg is hurt that Dusty has such strong feelings for Jennifer that he chooses to believe her instead of trusting he medical opinion.

Will yells at Barbara that he was protecting Jennifer from her.

At the hospital, Dusty encourages Meg to put herself in Jennifer’s shoes and asks her what she would do if every instinct she had was telling her baby was alive when everyone though the baby was dead. Meg tells Dusty she would probably ask him to help her prove she was right. Dusty tells Meg that Jennifer asked him to go to Jack and Carly’s to look at the baby to see if he thought the baby was hers. Dusty explains to Meg he has been trying to decide what to do because all babies look the same to him.
