On the psych ward, Emily is informed by an attendant that Paul wants to see her. Susan comes in and tells Em that she has heard that Emily is thinking of having an abortion. Susan demands to know if she is going to have the baby or not. Emily cryptically replies, "That depends on what happens today." Lucinda bursts in to Lily's house and asks why Damien is in town.

At the Lakeview, Damien thanks Luke for coming to see him, although Luke is not sure it was a good idea. Damien tells him that he wants to talk about Luke's "situation."

At CRASH, Gwen tells Casey and Maddie that Will is not picking up the phone. Gwen turns on Maddie and yells at her about keeping Will's cheating from her. Maddie tries to explain that Will asked her to keep it from her, Casey intervenes and tells Gwen that it's not Maddie's fault !

When Lucinda goes upstairs to see Natalie and Faith, Holden turns on Lily and wants to know if she knew Damien was planning on staying in town. Lily tells him she is surprised as he is. Furious, Holden storms out saying he's not going to let Damien hurt Luke again. At CRASH, the argument between Maddie and Gwen escalates as Maddie tries to explain that she didn't think it was her place to tell Gwen since she and Will are married and she is a friend to both of them. To diffuse things, Casey sends Maddie off to look for Lisa then blasts Gwen for blaming Maddie for Will's mistake. Gwen concedes that he is right. Back at Hal's, Jade asks Will to tell her how he and Gwen met as she makes Will some coffee. Will talks about his history with Gwen and how much she loves him for himself. Jade tells him that he is lucky since she never had that. Will decides to go see Gwen to apologize, and Jade insists on driving.

Paul tells Emily that he is grateful for the chance to become a father and that he understands that it may be too much for her. Despite Paul's sweet words, Emily tells him that she is seriously considering an abortion and shows him the consent papers. Paul tells her if that's what she wants he'll be supportive, but he doesn't think she could destroy something that they made together.
