Meg guesses that he and Lily made love in Mexico. Holden notices the flowers in a vase and asks Meg whom the flowers are from, and when she tells him its none of his business he reaches over Meg towards the vase and tickles Meg to get the card away from her. Holden is not happy when he reads, "Thanks for everything, Dusty." Meg explains to Holden she did a favor for Dusty, and he is grateful to her.

Emily hesitates for a few minutes, then she smiles and gives Paul a kiss and says that she is willing to support him and do anything it takes to protect Jennifer.
At the hospital, Carly begs Jack not to be mad at her because she went to tell Gwen that she didnt mean to hurt her little brother and explain that she was just a child and didnt understand what she did to him. Jack thinks Carly made a big mistake that may cost them Rory. Jack tells Carly that from now on she must trust him, and they must talk about every decision that concerns Rory.

Carly vows she wont allow anyone to take Rory away from them.
At Gwens place, Gwen is desperate to go get her baby because she will not have him living in the home of someone who killed a child. Iris tries to reason with Gwen and tells her to stay calm and be patient, and let Cass handle things. Gwen is worried that Carly will hurt her son and heads for the door to get her child. Iris screams at Gwen that if she goes to get her son now she will lose her son--and the money that comes with him. Gwen cries as she realizes her mother only wanted to help her in order to get her hands on the trust fund. Iris explains to Gwen that she doesnt want her grandson to grow up being poor, like she did when she was a child.

Paul panics and tells Jennifer he is going over there for them to talk. Jennifer hangs up the phone and tells Dusty Paul is coming over to talk because she told him she changed her mind about going to Italy. Jennifer explains to Dusty she needs to stay in order to look for the baby, and she didnt want Paul to waste a trip. Dusty tells Jennifer they need Paul to be out of the country so they can look for the baby without him constantly watching them. Dusty tells Jennifer that if Paul doesnt get on a plane tonight, her chances of finding the baby go up in smoke.
At Lilys place, Lucinda feels guilty because she stopped her chemotherapy and went in search of a cure that didnt work, and she only made things worse. Sierra and Lily tell their mother that she shouldnt think about that now and should concentrate on her surgery tomorrow. Lucinda asks for both her daughters' support and promises not to shut them out anymore.

At the Snyder farm, Holden asks Meg to tell him what caused her to divorce Josh. Meg explains to Holden that it wasnt anything major; he just came home one day and gave her a kiss, and they had dinner and he fell asleep watching television. Meg explains that while she watched Josh sleep she suddenly felt very lonely. Holden tells Meg that he felt that way with Lily not so long ago, and now he is more in love than ever and may have a chance at getting her back in his life. Holden doesnt think that Dusty is the right man for Meg, because he is unavailable since he is helping Jennifer get over her loss. Meg explains that she intends to be patient and wait on Dusty to help Jennifer get over her loss, so that maybe once Jennifer is okay Dusty will concentrate on her instead of Jennifer. Holden thinks it will take Jennifer a long time to get over the loss of a baby. Meg thinks Jennifer may be happy soon.

At Java, Meg talks to her friend Eli, who does genetic research, and asks him how long it will take once the DNA test comes back for the babys biological mother to get her child. Eli tells Meg that a DNA test doesnt guarantee a judge will give custody to the childs mother, because they dont like to rip a child out of a home he has been in for a long time.
At the hospital, the nurse tells Carly she has a call from a clinic in Switzerland about her sister. Carly leaves Rory with the nurse and goes to call the clinic.
