Jack, Chad, and Abigail arrive at the hospital. Jack goes to find out what room Gwen is in. Abigail feels Chad is looking at her like she's a horrible, evil person. Chad assures he doesn't think that but he needs to know what happened back there.

Dr. Snyder responds that Gwen asked him not to share that information with anyone so if he wants more info, he will have to speak to her. Chad says he'll do that then.

Kristen brings up Kate's insecurities as an older woman with a young lover and her fear of Gabi replacing her. Kristen adds that she won't be surprised if Jake goes running straight to Gabi.
Gabi tells Jake that she did not talk to Kate so maybe she just realized he's a really big jerk. Jake argues that Kate was not herself today. Gabi argues that Kate just came to her senses because any woman would have to be out of her mind to want to be with him. Jake says that must make Gabi certifiable. Gabi remarks that she's way better off without him. Jake argues if he told Gabi right now that he wanted to be with her, she'd be dragging him upstairs to her room so fast.
Abigail tells Jack that she thinks this all happened because Jack asked Gwen to move in with him. Abigail explains that Gwen came charging in to their room, demanding to see Chad, and she was still upset about what Jack did so she was too upset to deal with Gwen properly. Jack knows Abigail is hurting but argues that he couldn't let Gwen have the baby alone. Abigail thinks Gwen said she was leaving town because she knew how Jack would react. Jack insists that she meant it. Abigail knows he feels guilty for not being a father to Gwen but says that Gwen plays on that guilt. Jack explains that Gwen was going to leave town because of Abigail, to make sure she didn't have to worry about running in to her.

Kristen says it's clear that Kate won't go without a fight so she's going to leave and come back with something that will make Kate more cooperative and relaxed for her trip.
Jack tells Jennifer that he doesn't know how the baby is but he saw Gwen's fall and he doesn't have a good feeling about the pregnancy.
