Donna is at the police station with Owen. Hes still trying to convince her he didnt try to kill Eric. Shes not hearing it. She berates him about how much she trusted him, but now shell see him behind bars.
Katie and Nick are in the exam room, where the doctor has left them to review the pamphlet about high risk pregnancy. Katie refuses to discuss the possibility of terminating the pregnancy. She insists to Nick the baby will be fine. He tells her he doesnt want to talk about it either, but the doctor wouldnt have introduced the idea of termination if everything was safe. He tells her having this baby could be fatal for her and hes not going to let that happen.
Rick is sitting at Erics bedside, where he appears to be very worried and near tears. Hes holding Erics hand, when Stephanie comes in. She sits beside Rick and strokes his back. Rick tells her Bridget brought him up to date on what happened. Stephanie says she feels responsible for Erics situation, since she sat back noble and supportive of his marriage to Donna. Rick quickly interjects that Donna had nothing to do with this. Owen was arrested. Stephanie lets him know she doesnt believe he acted alone.
Lt. Baker is eating a hotdog in his office, looking at Owens statement. Charlie comes in with a salad and shakes his head at his dad. He cant understand why his dad is looking for more, when Owen confessed. Its a slam dunk. He says its almost too good to believe. Lt. Baker says thats the problem. He has more questions about Donnas relationship with Owen Knight.
Owens tells Donna she knows he couldnt have done this. She is still very angry and tells him she hates him. She was a fool to trust him. She says she could be responsible for the man she loves being in this condition. Shes the one that brought Owen into their lives. Owen listens to her rant with a hurt expression.
Charlie continues to question his dad about why Owens story doesnt make sense to him. Lt. Baker says it doesnt add up. Why would Owen plant the capsules in the drawer of the woman he supposedly loves? Charlie says hes still working on that.
Rick asks Stephanie why anyone would do this to his father. She thinks its for the money. Rick tells her hes sorry, but he has to go to work. She tells him thats okay, shell stay with Eric. When he leaves, Stephanie moves in next to Erics bed. She tells Eric if only love alone could bring him back. She apologizes to him for whats happened. She promises to make whoever did this to him pay.
Owen tells Donna if he did this, he deserves to pay. She agrees. He tries to convince her the person that did this is still out there and could have her in their sites. Donna isnt buying any of it and thinks hes trying to scare her into being dependent on him. Hes even more adamant, when he tells her he cant protect her and neither can Eric. She needs to protect herself.
Katie tells Nick nothing will happen to her. She wasnt supposed to live and now shes pregnant. God wouldnt have her go through all of this for it to end now. Nick says losing her isnt an option. She grabs his hands and tells him very seriously to have some faith. Nick looks doubtful.
Lt. Baker has downed a Coke and moved on to a chocolate covered donut, when Charlie comes back. He sees Lt. Baker still has Owens report. He reminds his dad Owen confessed. Lt. Baker says it just doesnt make sense. Charlie says, Its a confession! Lt. Baker tells him it could be something else. Charlie wants to know what else it could be. Lt. Baker says a cover up.
Pam has joined Stephanie in Erics room. Stephanie brings her up to speed on Eric being poisoned, which induced the heart attack. Pam is shocked and wonders who could do something like this to Eric. She immediately says it had to be the hot tamale, Donna. She wants to know if theyve arrested her. Stephanie explains about Owen being arrested, even though they found the potassium capsules in Donnas drawer. Pam is confused. Stephanie tells her she thinks theyre in it together.
Donna doesnt believe anything Owen says. He admits to her hes scared, because hes never been in jail before. He says its better him than her. Shes not giving any indication she believes him. He sits dejectedly at the table. He tells Donna whoever planted the capsules is trying to frame her. They wont stop. He encourages her to get some help from Marcus, whos smart and loves her. He even suggests Brooke, but Donna cuts him off. She wants to know why hes saying these things. She thinks hes trying to confuse her. Owen begs her to listen to what hes telling her. He reminds her he was the one that wanted to keep Eric on the vent, so why would he have tried to kill him only to keep him alive. He also asks why he would plant the pills, but later confess. He pleads with her to think about how own safety.
Nick tells Katie hes filled with faith, but the pamphlet is a reality. Katie tells him she doesnt want to terminate the pregnancy. Nick doesnt want this either, but wonders about something happening to her. He doesnt get to finish, because Katie says it wont. He says she doesnt know that. Katie tells him if it does, he can raise the child with Bridget. Nick very quickly dismisses this suggestion. Katie tells him Bridget would do it, because of the type of person she is. She goes on to tell Nick she doesnt want to die; she has a lot of live for. This child is a part of him and may be the only part shell ever have. Nick looks at her intently.
Katie tries to persuade Nick this could all work out for the best. She wants him to promise her to give it a chance. He jokes about there being something easier he could do. Reluctantly he agrees to go along with it, but tells her any complications and it ends. She says there wont be. She says she has his love and support and thats enough. She reaches out to hug him. Over her shoulder Nicks face shows his concern.
Stephanie and Pam continue to talk about Donna and Owen being in cahoots. Pam encourages Stephanie to not let this go. Shes seen things. She feels Donna and Owen could have planned this. Stephanie says if thats the case, theyre foolish to think shed let this go. Stephanie sits at Erics bedside and tells him she knows he can hear her. She wont let him down.
Donna paces around and asks Owen how he could think shed believe anything he had to say. Hed have to be a liar or crazy to confess to a murder rap to protect her. Owen says the third option is he loves her. She looks skeptical. He compliments her and talks about how much he admires her love for Eric. She tells him to stop talking like that. Why would he sacrifice his life and freedom for a woman he knows has a husband she loves very much. Owen uses this thought to show her what a person is willing to do for the ones they love. Donna is listening, but is still uncertain of what to believe.
Owen reminds her about the break-in and how someone ransacked her bedroom. She recalls and gets a frightened look on her face. She nervously grabs her head and says hes telling the truth and shouldnt be there. Owen tells her none of this matters; he wants her to be safe. He tells her to make some phone calls before leaving the station. With his cuffed hands, he grabs Donnas hand to enforce what hes saying. The guard has been outside and tells him to let her go. He comes in and grabs Owen to remove him. As hes being led away, Owen continues to tell Donna to be careful. He wants her to get someone to stay at the house with her. Donna is now really nervous and scared. Shes in tears and almost faints. Its sinking in what Owen has been saying. She sits alone in the room with a terrified look.
