Will tells Carly to go away because he doesnt feel like talking to anyone. Carly tells Will that he and Gwen have every right to be mad at her, because she made a big mistake. Carly explains to Will that she truly only wanted to protect the baby, because she loves him. Will tells Carly she can save her breath because he wont be talking to Gwen for her. Carly wonders why Will isn't going to give her a second chance. Will explains that he and Gwen have broken up, so it's likely Gwen wont listen to him.
At Gwens place, Iris tells Gwen to forget about Will because the only thing that matters is her (Iris) and the baby--they are the only two people who truly love her.
At the Street Jeans office, Dusty tells Jennifer that Will discovered that Paul was paying Gwens legal bills and he got angry at Paul for trying to control his life. Jennifer explains that Paul told her that a few days ago. Jennifer also tells Dusty that Paul explained to her that he did it because he didnt want the baby in Oakdale to remind her of the baby she lost. Jennifer tells Dusty that Paul was also hurting because the baby was a constant reminder of Rosanna. Jennifer tells Dusty that Paul wasnt trying to control Wills life, he was trying to protect her. Dusty tells Jennifer she should keep her guard up with Paul because he thinks there is more to the story. Dusty tells Jennifer that he is only telling her this so she can protect herself against Paul. Jennifer thinks she should protect herself from Dusty, not her own brother.

Keith tells Lily that she should tell Holden everything. Lily tells Keith that as long as her son lives she doesnt care where the kidney comes from, and all that Holden has to know is that Luke will live. Keith tells Lily he thinks he can persuade his former bosses to help him, because they love money and he has some dirt on them that they want kept secret.
At the hospital, Meg asks Holden how things are going with him and Lily.

Meg explains to Holden that Dusty blames himself for letting Jennifer down and not bringing her baby back. Meg also tells Holden that Jennifer kicked Dusty out of her life.

At Java, Iris arrives shortly after Carly gets up and goes back to her table. Iris throws Will the jacket he gave to the baby and tells him to keep it, because Gwen doesnt need the jacket or him anymore.

Iris throws it back to him and reminds him to stay away from Gwen.

Will refuses to believe Jennifer and says that Paul is just like Barbara, and he is tired of his family treating him like a child. Jennifer encourages Will to stop focusing on Paul and Barbara and focus on something positive. Jennifer thinks they should both take a road trip and look at colleges he may be interested in going to next year. Jennifer thinks it will be a good chance for them to bond again and focus on the future. Will smiles and agrees to go on the trip with Jennifer.
