Franco doesn't like the way Epiphany is looking at him, but it's no different than the way she looks at everyone that annoys her. Silas is watching this from the doorway and says. "Will I do?"
At the Falconeri loft, poor Lulu has a summer cold, so she can't go to childbirth class with Dante and Maxie. Olivia is fussing over her, and tells her that she's ordered soup from Kelly's.
Maxie arrives at the childbirth classroom, but when she sees a poster of a mother and child , she turns away guiltily. She leans against the doorway, and talks to herself. She tells Georgie that she can't do it, she can't tell Dante and Lulu the truth. She says "I'm sorry I can't do it." Dante arrives and says "What are you sorry about?"
Back at the loft, Lulu bemoans missing the childbirth class. Olivia tries to comfort her, just as the doorbell rings. She thinks it's the delivery guy from Kelly's. She opens the door to find a zombie-like Maxie carrying a knife. As Olivia freaks out, zombie Maxie goes over to the kitchen, where Lulu is getting a bowl for her soup. She reaches up and stabs Lulu in the back, until Lulu slumps down to the floor.

Spinelli is like a spectator at a tennis game watching the two women. Ava gets up to leave, but leans over Carly before she goes, and says, "About that secret, it's called listening, Carly. " Ava makes Spinelli nervous, but Carly's not done yet. She wants him to tail her, much to Spinelli's frustration, because Ava knows his face. Carly is scared of Ava and the hold over Morgan. She tells him that Franco is just as afraid of Ava as she is. Spinelli leaves. Carly goes inside, where she runs into AJ, and he offers to buy her coffee.

She pushes him out of the way, and says "Oh, it's you, The Jackal!" Ava turns on him, and tells him that she knows he was in Manhattan pestering her assistant.

Silas says it would be a shame since he was just about to fill him in on his history with you. Ava goes over to Franco and snarls "Don't you say another bloody word!" Franco says "I don't know what you're so upset about, buttercup. I told him that we didn't work together but we do sha........"

When he says that Maxie is gonna kill him, Olivia tells him that they have to stay away from Maxie. Olivia tells him about the vision where Maxie was stabbing Lulu. Dante doesn't understand why Maxie would want to hurt Lulu. Lulu wonders the same thing, when she joins them.

He tells her that Ellie will be okay with him being Maxie's birthing coach. In a touching moment, Spinelli says how important it was for Dante for Maxie, not to go to the birthing class alone.

Britt says that she's surprised, since she made a big scene at the Nurses' Ball. Nikolas tells her that he was indisposed that night.

"You mean the one that Patrick couldn't attend?" she wonders if Nikolas took his place, but Sabrina laughs it off. Epiphany continues with the class keeping a watchful eye on Britt and Nikolas.
Dante tells Olivia that her vision is not going to come true. Maxie isn't going to murder her best friend. All of this exhausts Lulu, who wants to go back to bed. Dante goes "to tuck her in."

Maxie is doing her cleansing breaths and enjoys a moment with Spinelli.
At Kelly's, AJ isn't convinced, about Carly's theory. He says that Kiki's votes no longer count. "Unless they're pooled with her father's," says Carly. AJ finally figures out what Carly has been telling him. He needs to worry about Ava after all. AJ and Carly realize that puts them on the same side, for once!
