Casey comes down the stairs and sees that Margo is having trouble putting an ornament near the top of the tree. He reaches to help her and she gets agitated. Casey can see that she really doesn’t want his help. There is a knock at the door. Casey opens it and it's Will, who wants to talk to him alone. They step outside. Will is worried about Gwen and he asks Casey if he has seen her. Casey tells Will that the last time he saw Gwen was last night at the cemetery when they were both visiting their baby. Will is surprised to hear that Casey is finally admitting that it is his baby.. Will is still not impressed, though; he tells Casey that he loved the baby even when he knew it was Casey’s.

Casey looks at Will and tells him that he is a better man than he is. While they are outside, Maddie enters and tries to help Margo with the decorating. She is still agitated, and Maddie asks her if it has something to do with Casey. Margo tries to be polite and tells Maddie that she is just used to decorating alone. Maddie knows that there is something going on with Margo and Casey and offers to play peacemaker. Margo tries to politely put her off and heads for the hills. Casey comes back into the house, and Maddie can tell from the look on his face that something is wrong. He tells her about the mix-up with the babies and that his baby with Gwen died. Maddie now gets why Margo was so upset with him.

She sees how down and discouraged Casey is and tries to get him to see that things will get better. The two are sitting on the couch. She tells Casey that when Henry gets back, even though she is mad at him, she is going to forgive him, because that is what families do. Casey can see how much Maddie misses Henry and holds her hand. They look at each other in a way that they never have before.
