She then tells Lorenzo he is a jerk and a criminal and she regrets being with him. And right then, the baby comes out and they hear the cry.

But she cannot put it off. She needs to find out in order to figure out what to do next. She then opens it and sees the results.
Ric tells Alexis that she keeps finding any and every excuse to avoid being close to him. He tells her that she needs to come right out and admit that she cannot stand the sight of him. She then confirms that that is true. He asks if it is because hes not Sonny. She tells him its because every time she sees him, she sees him having sex with her daughter. Assuming that she has never seen that and very surprised to learn for the first time that she has, he asks her what she has been hearing. She tells him that she saw the two of them right on her living room floor going at it when she came home and looked through the window.
Emily informs Nikolas that shes done a thorough background check on Colleen. She has had many very short-term nanny jobs for single fathers who have all died shortly after she left their employment. He asks Emily the source of her information. She informs him that it was Stan, Sonny and Jasons computer genius (and Epiphanys son). She tells Nikolas he must realize that Stan knows what he is doing and the information is accurate. But Nikolas has difficulty believing it and asks Emily why she has this thing about incriminating Colleen.
Sonny tells Elizabeth that he realizes that Lucky has some problems with his addiction and recent behaviors but he still believes that Lucky is a man who loves his family. He also believes that Jason is not ready for a family. His work is incredibly dangerous and a baby would just make it worse. She then confirms to Sonny that hes right. It might be for the best if Lucky is the father of her child.
Ric justifies himself to Alexis for what he did with Sam. He tells her that they both had a terrible day. He then admits that things got a little intense with Sam. In response to that word, she demands to know if thats what he calls it. She tells him that it was sex and he must realize what it was. He tells her that she has known about it since it happened and yet said nothing. She then tells him that it was exactly 10 weeks ago when it happened. He also reminds her that she has lied to him about her diagnoses. She tells him that he is sliding down a really slippery slope. He tells her that he is not denying what he did and asks her why she is doing that now. She then tells him that now that they are ready to discuss all the gory details, she will tell him one more time. It was right when she first got the diagnoses that she had cancer when she came home and wanted to return to her family who loves her. And she walks in the door and sees something so insufferable and hateful as her husband and her daughter having sex in her living room. She tells him its unforgivable and she will never understand how he could have done that. He tells her that she did not tell him anything or admit to him that he did it since she saw it. He tells her that she may tell him hes an adulterer but she is a hypocrite. She tells him how dare he make this her fault. He tells her that shes vilified him too much. He asks her what she expects. She is a cold, distant woman who cannot love anybody except her children. And thats only so that she can control him. She tells him its incredible that he is making her the bitch. He tells her that she is only the victim. He tells her hat no matter what he did, all he was was a warm body and a father figure to her children. When he saw her with the mayor, he formed his own likely conclusion because she never came home or gave any intimacy to him. He asks her what all of her crocodile tears and falseness about wanting to be a couple with him was all about. He tells her that he has owned what he has done and will never sleep with Sam again. She then tells him that he must really think he deserves a medal because he only slept with his wifes daughter once and not twice. She then tells him that all she wants is to be done with their marriage. Its over. They are done. She wants out.

But he does not believe that Colleen would have motive to go to such drastic measures over a crush. Emily tells him that he must consider the possibility.

He asks her if she will team up with Sonny against him. Right then, Sonny walks in and asks Alexis if she is alright.

She admits to Nikolas that she made a serious mistake and several children were left fatherless when she abandoned them. He asks her if she is telling him that she had no involvement with it. She tells him that she did not tell him about the deaths because she was afraid of what he would think if she admitted that and that he would not hire her.
