Katherine and Martin, in their room at the B&B, are ready for bed. Katherine kneels at his feet as he sits in the chair. He tells her he wishes time would go quickly so they could be on their way and forget all that has happened. She says all they have to do is go see the attorney tomorrow, get the paperwork done to take care of things with Pilar and the family, and they will be on their way. “The divorce”, he says. He says that Pilar will probably want an annulment, too, in case she wants to be married in the church. Katherine says he will give her that, too, and he agrees, adding he will pay any alimony he can, too. He says it’s the least he can do after destroying her life. He asks what the heck he has done, saying he never thought he would be a divorced man with no family. She tells him he has her, always, and he strokes her face lovingly. He talks about the fact his kids are miserable, but she tells him it won’t be forever, and Luis and Sheridan have a real chance for happiness. He reminds her that depends on Sheridan never finding out who Katherine really is. She agrees that would destroy them, but he says once they are gone, maybe the kids will be able to live happily ever after.

Sheridan and Luis are relaxing in her bed. He says soon she’ll be his wife, and she tells him she was so afraid this day would never come, they would never be happy. He says it’s all behind them now, and tells her to think of the fact they are going to be married. Then he remarks on the amazing fact that Julian is the one who can make it happen, of all people. He says he thinks it’s the first time a Crane has ever done anything good, then says not counting her, of course. He goes on to say that Julian will get it done as long as he can get a judge to have Antonio declared dead, or else it will take seven years. They talk about Antonio and what a good man he was, how he would want them to be happy. She then says as long as Julian has his way with the judge they will be husband and wife soon. She tells him to keep his fingers crossed, then says “’Til death do us part.”

Julian is on the phone with Judge Riley. He says he wants a private inquest into the Crane Corporate Jet explosion. He says Antonio Lopez-Fitzgerald was on the plane and he wants him to be declared legally dead without waiting seven years. He chuckles and says that’s a bit steep, even for the judge, but he agrees to it and says he will have it in the Cayman Islands account by tomorrow. Rebecca has entered the room and hears this exchange. She asks what he needs that crook, Judge Riley, for, since he is so expensive to pay off.

She recounts the time a pedestrian ran into her car and she had to have an entire stone fence built around his whole estate in order to get out of it. He tells her what he is trying to do for Sheridan and she gets sidetracked by remembering Antonio - so young, so handsome, so muscular - and says it’s so sad that he died before she had a chance to get to know him better. Julian chuckles and agrees. She asks why he’s doing this, and he tells her that Sheridan loves Luis and wants to marry him but doesn’t want to wait seven years until Antonio can be declared dead. Rebecca remarks that he usually is trying to kill her, and he tells her he’s changed. She makes a sarcastic remark about having learned from Timmy, blah, blah, blah, and he tells her he taught him that there is more to life than money, power, and position. She asks like what, and he tells her like love, family, and loyalty, telling her he thinks she missed the day they taught that in Sunday School. She laughs and tells him loyalty won’t buy you anything, but money will pay the heating bill. She tells him that’s why she loves him, he owns the oil company. He tells her to say goodnight, and she asks if Dr. Love is waiting for him upstairs. He tells her Eve is at the hospital saving lives, and that’s something else she knows nothing about. Rebecca grabs the front of his shirt in her hand and tells him if he keeps it up, she’ll have to save his.

Theresa is in labor at the hospital. Pilar, Paloma, Gwen, Ethan, and Dr. Russell are in the room with her. Theresa asks Eve to save the baby. Eve says to relax, she has to examine her. Gwen is worried, asking them not to let the baby die. Eve examines Theresa and says she’s fully dilated, that she will give her something to stop the contractions but it might be too late already. Gwen tells her to save her baby, and Theresa says “Yes, save the baby.” (commercial)

Eve tells the nurse to give Theresa medicine to try to stop the labor, but Theresa tells her she has to push and can’t stop it. Eve tells her to resist the urge to push, but she tells her she can’t. Pilar and Paloma try to calm her, help her stop pushing, but Theresa is unable to stop. Gwen cries in the background, saying it’s too early, and prays to God to please not let her baby die.

Julian pulls Rebecca’s hand away from his shirt, telling her the ring she has on could put an eye out. She says it’s very appropriate since it’s her wedding ring. He tells her to keep her gutter theatrics to herself because she doesn’t intimidate him. She tells him she should since she has the goods on him and what she knows could put him in prison for a long time for trying to kill Sheridan. She says it’s lucky for him that she can’t testify against him since they are married, till death parts them. He tells her that is a blessed release, that they are a living romance novel. She tells him she does love him, but he says she loves the money, the stocks, the diamonds, and most of all being Mrs. Julian Crane so she can treat everyone like dirt. She smiles at the thought. He tells her not to worry, that she will receive a very generous settlement to keep her mouth shut. She asks if he means to divorce her, and he says he does, that he has wasted a lot of time apart from Eve, the woman he really loves, and he is going to marry her and make up for it. She tells him he doesn’t have to get a divorce, just be discreet. She tells him to do what he is going to do in private because she doesn’t care, but she won’t be forced into a public threesome with Eve. She tells him to move Eve out of the mansion, that she is the lady of this house and expects to be treated as such. He tells her he refuses to treat Eve like a mistress, that he wants out of the marriage, to be through with her once and for all. She retorts that when Prince William gets married she will be the bloody Princess of Wales, that you don’t always get what you want and he has to get used to it.

Martin looks at Katherine and says “My God, I love you!” He tells her he doesn’t know what he would do without her in his life. She says she does, that he would still be with his children and Pilar, that she is the source of all the bad things that have happened and that he would have been better off if he’d never met her. He tells her not to blame herself, that it was Alistair’s fault, and that he should really thank him because if it weren’t for him Martin would never have known the greatest love of his life. She says his name, and he says he means it, that if he had it to do all over again, he’d still leave with her. He says what they’ve done to their families to hurt them will never go away, but their life has been like Paradise. She tells him she’d run away with him again, too. He says he has to get his divorce started so Pilar can move on and start a new life, but once that’s done, they are leaving. He tells her that they might find Paradise again.

Luis says he might be dreaming, but if the judge gives Julian the ok, they could be married by Christmas. Sheridan gets excited and starts talking about calling Father Lonigan and making plans, booking the church because it’s such a busy time, etc. He tells her they should wait until they know for sure, and she agrees. She talks about being Mr. & Mrs. Luis Lopez-Fitzgerald and says Santa couldn’t give her a better gift. Then she talks about being afraid to hope since things have always come up to keep them apart. Luis asks where they’d be without hope, and that nothing will keep them from getting married, that he won’t let it. (commercial)

Alistair is listening outside the door where Julian and Rebecca are arguing. She tells Julian that her mother told her to always marry up and a Crane is as up as you can get, so no divorce, ever. Julian tells her she has no choice and to go to bed. She tells him to remember she has the goods on him, but he reminds her that she just heard him talking with the judge, and that for a large enough donation to his retirement account he will convict her of killing Sheridan. She reminds him that Sheridan is still living, but he tells her that won’t bother the judge one bit, that justice is for sale if you have enough money, and that’s one thing he does have so she doesn’t frighten him, he will have his divorce. She says she has given him the best year of her life and he tells her to go to bed, to see if there is another Lana Turner movie on. She says she won’t be dismissed, she is his wife, but he retorts “Not for long!” “How dare you!”, she hisses at him, and outside the door, Alistair smiles and says “It sounds like Rebecca is going to give Julian a run for my money.”

The nurse tells Eve that the medicine hasn’t stopped the contractions as Theresa lies moaning and writhing on the bed. Gwen whines, and Eve tells Theresa she has to resist the temptation to push. Another pain begins, and Eve tells Theresa not to push, but the girl says she has to, she can’t stop it. Eve tells the nurse the labor won’t be stopped and the baby is coming. Gwen moans as Eve begins to help Theresa deliver the baby. (commercial)

Eve tells everyone to get out of the room. Theresa says no, let Ethan and her mother stay, then Gwen says she’s the mother, she’s staying. Eve tells them all to get out as Theresa tries to protest. Outside the room, Pilar tells Paloma she is going to call Luis and walks to the payphone. Paloma decides her father should be there, too, and heads off to call him. Ethan tries to stop her, saying it’s not a good idea but the girl is off and running and doesn’t hear him.

He goes back to Gwen who asks him to pray with her.

In Sheridan’s bedroom, they are making love when the phone rings and Luis tells her to ignore it. The screening line comes on and they hear Pilar on the other end. Sheridan answers the phone and is told about Theresa’s problems. Sheridan tells Luis who says to tell his mother they will be right there, then they both start to get dressed.

Martin and Katherine are in bed, talking about how tired they are and how emotionally draining each day has been for them. The phone rings and Martin answers.

Paloma tells him what’s going on and he says he’ll be right there. He hangs up, telling Katherine what’s going on, saying he never was there for his kids before but he will be there for her now, then tells Katherine she should stay home. She tells him they may never get married, but she feels like his wife and will act like it, too, in good times and bad. He tells her how much he adores her again, then they both get dressed .

Gwen is upset that they listened to Rebecca when Theresa started having the cramps, that they should have rushed her to the hospital right then. Ethan tells her it will be ok. She reminds him that Theresa and Little Ethan both almost died when he was born, that she had already lost their son because she couldn’t handle having twins, and she has a really bad feeling about this. She asks if she had done something wrong. Ethan tells her no, no one did anything wrong, that babies are born when they want to be. Gwen recounts the fact that she couldn’t handle it if Theresa loses their baby and how they lost Sarah and this baby’s brother, and says that if they lose this baby she will die. He tells her not to talk like that. (commercial)

Julian is still listening at the door as Rebecca and Julian talk. She asks Julian why he’s being so mean to her, then reminds him of all her sexual exploits with him and how much fun they had. He says yes, he remembers, but he’s changed. He says he’s tired of being the laughingstock of Harmony, he’s a man not some drunken frat boy and it’s time he grew up and became the man his mother had wanted him to be, do some good with his life. He asks her if she never wanted to do good for someone. She says yes, if it gets her a tax deduction. She says they can’t all afford to have a mid-life crisis and turn all goody-goody.

He says it’s not about the money, and she retorts that is what all the rich people say. He reminds her she grew up with money, but she says not like his kind of Richey Rich money. She says it’s always about the money, and didn’t he dump Eve the first time for the money. She says of course he did, his father hadn’t wanted to have a black Crane so he told Julian to get rid of her, which he did so he could keep all daddy’s money. He says yes, but now the joke’s on Alistair, since he has a half-black grandson and Whitney is pregnant. Rebecca is appalled that Whitney is having her half-brother’s child, but Julian says no, it’s Fox’s. Outside the door, Alistair says his informants say different. Rebecca says that’s quaint, that after all these years, he and Eve have an instant family, even a grandchild. He grins and says he couldn’t be happier. She tells him he’s going to pay big time for that one, but he walks away saying she bores him and then yells at her to get out. She tells him it isn’t finished yet, just wait, and walks out, passing Alistair walking in. He tells her to slow down or she’ll break something. She says yeah, Julian’s neck, then tells him to talk to his son or she’s going to make it hot for both of them. Alistair chuckles, then asks Julian what he said to her. Julian tells him it’s none of his business, but Alistair says everything is his business since he owns them all. Julian says only until he “shuffles of this mortal coil”, and then he will be stuck with the task of undoing all the rotten things his father has done. Alistair tells him he’s not dead yet, and tells him he has the power to control him from beyond the grave and he’d best not forget it.

Pilar tells Paloma to quit pacing, it doesn’t help anything. The girl says she can’t help it, her niece might die in there. Pilar tells her to pray, then, but Paloma tells her prayers don’t work. She says she prayed every night for her mother to bring her home but it never worked.

Pilar tells her faith fixes everything. Luis and Sheridan arrive and ask what’s happening with Theresa. Pilar tells them it’s not good. Martin and Katherine arrive then, and Luis asks why he’s there. Paloma tells him she called him. Luis says he was never there when they were growing up and they don’t need him now. Paloma says she does, when there is trouble, she needs them with her. Pilar tells them all to stop, that Theresa is in trouble and they don’t know if the baby will make it, so they need to pull together as a family for her sake, that if Paloma wants them there, then they can stay. Luis tries to argue, but she tells him she means it. A call for Blue Team in ICU comes over the speaker, and Gwen tells Ethan it doesn’t sound good. He suggests they pray, so they do. In the room, Eve tells Theresa not to push until she tells her to, that it’s important. Theresa says she will try and asks Eve to help her baby. An alarm goes off and the nurse tells them the baby is in fetal distress, so Eve tells Theresa to push now. (commercial)

Julian calls Alistair a bastard and asks why God couldn’t have taken him instead of his mother. Alistair tells him he knows why, because he paid Him off, then laughs. Julian talks about all the misery he has caused him by packing him off to Europe, not letting him know Eve was pregnant, and all because he couldn’t stand the idea of having a black Crane. Julian tells him his narrow-minded bigotry has destroyed not only Julian but it killed his mother and almost killed Sheridan.

Alistair tells him his thinking is muddled, that Katherine died of kidney failure and Sheridan ALMOST died because he couldn’t handle a simple assignment. He says Julian’s happiness doesn’t matter, they aren’t put on the earth to be happy, they are put there to work. He then adds that he has no intention of allowing his hip-hopping black disc-jockey son anywhere near the helm of his company. Julian tells him the jokes on him because Chad is a Crane and the whole world knows about it. Alistair tells him that doesn’t mean he’s going to get his company, and neither is Julian. Julian tells him he doesn’t want it. Alistair adds that Julian’s namby-pamby son Fox won’t get it, either. Julian asks who will, that Ethan is the best candidate but he’s not a Crane and Little Ethan is a Lopez-Fitzgerald, so he’s run out of male heirs. He adds that of course there is Alistair’s great-grandchild that Whitney will have, and tells him Fox is the father. Alistair acts surprised, then says the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. He says maybe he’ll have to send Fox off to Europe, too. Julian tells him it will never happen, then rubs in the fact that now they have Chad, the first official black Crane, and soon there will be Fox’s child, telling him he can hand out cigars. Alistair yells at him to shut up and he yells back that he will when he is finished. He goes on to say that once he and Rebecca are divorced and he marries Eve, there will be three black Cranes, that maybe that will get them on Oprah or the cover of Ebony magazine. Alistair explodes, yelling “Damn your lies!” as Julian says they will have an interracial Crane Empire, that soon there will be more black Cranes than white ones and that he can’t wait. Alistair stares daggers at him.

Luis is pacing in the waiting room as the others sit in silence. Paloma says she wishes they would tell them what’s going on. Sheridan says she’s sure they will, then excuses herself to use the restroom. Luis asks how much more the family can take, that they have no home, no jobs, Antonio’s dead and now Papa has returned. Pilar tells him God never gives them more than they can handle. Katherine heads to the restroom, and Pilar says they are together as a family, the rest is in God’s hands and He’ll listen if Luis talks to Him. Luis says He hasn’t done much for them lately, that maybe He thinks they are some kind of big joke. Pilar tries to quiet him. Paloma gets up and tells her dad that maybe her mother is right and God does listen, so she’s going to the chapel to pray for the baby.

As she leaves, Luis tells Martin he had a lot of nerve showing up there, that no one wants him. Martin says Paloma does, and he is going to stay. Luis says that he walked out on them, leaving them with nothing, but they hadn’t fallen apart, they clung together as a family, and they don’t need him now. Martin says he is there now for his daughter who’s trying to save her child, his grandchild. Luis says it’s too little, too late. Martin tells him he wishes he could get through to him, make him understand that he regretted all those years that he couldn’t be here. Luis takes umbrage with that, saying he chose not to be here. Martin tells him that’s not true, there were reasons, but Luis tells him to save it, he’s sick of Martin’s lies.

In the restroom, Katherine asks Sheridan if they can talk. Sheridan says she has nothing more to say to her. Katherine tells her she understands and doesn’t want to fight, but she does want to tell her something. She says she doesn’t know what will happen with Theresa and the baby tonight, but she knows they aren’t welcome there and she wanted to say goodbye in case she doesn’t see her again. She tells her Martin is seeing a lawyer in the morning to give Pilar a divorce, and then they will leave Harmony forever. She tells her that whatever she might think of her, she just wishes her and Luis the very best. Sheridan thanks her, then tells her they are getting married soon.

Katherine asks how since they have to wait seven years, and Sheridan tells her Julian is trying to get it done more quickly. She says it pays to be a Crane every now and again. Katherine asks if her father knows what they are doing, and Sheridan tells her no, not yet. Katherine asks her to promise her she won’t tell him. Sheridan asks why, and Katherine tells her because Alistair is cruel, and not to forget what he did to them in Mexico. She says he’ll do anything to stop them from being happy, and if he finds out they are getting married, he will find a way to stop it. Sheridan asks how she knows that. Katherine tells her to trust her, she knows. Sheridan says she can’t trust her when she’s been lying about her past, that she speaks about her father as if she knows him intimately. She asks what the woman knows about him, what she’s hiding. Katherine tells her nothing, but Sheridan doesn’t believe her. She tells her not to let anyone know what they are planning, to run away and elope, but not to let Alistair find out.

Gwen and Ethan are watching through Theresa’s door. Gwen tells Ethan Theresa is delivering the baby, and he says he knows. Gwen says she has to be ok. Eve tells Theresa to push one more time, but the girl says she can’t. Eve says yes, she can, just one more push because the baby wants to be born. She gives on last push and the baby is born. Theresa asks how the baby is, and Eve tells her she has all her fingers and toes. Theresa senses something is wrong and asks the Dr. what it is. Eve looks at the nurse, and Theresa asks her to let her see the baby. (commercial)

Sheridan tells Katherine she’s not making any sense, that her father has tried to stop them before but it hasn’t worked, that they are getting married at the Catholic Church on Christmas. Katherine begs her not to tell anyone, to marry him now. Sheridan says they can’t elope anyway, not until Julian gets them the death certificate, and asks why she’s so upset about it. Katherine tells her she knows Luis and Sheridan are soul mates, that their kind of love is a gift that happens once in a lifetime, that she shouldn’t take any chances and lose it. Sheridan tells her they won’t lose it, they will be together forever. Katherine tells her to make sure of that by running away and getting married secretly somewhere no one knows where they are. She begs her not to tell another soul what they are planning to do.

Luis tells Martin to leave. Pilar tells him to stop, but Luis tells her to stay out of it. Martin tells Luis he knows he hates him and wants to hit him, so go ahead, but he’s staying because his little girl is in there and he’s not leaving until he knows she’s alright. Luis asks if he thinks he’s father of the year now. He says he knows he’s hurt all of them, but then talks about being in that hospital when Theresa was born, and that Pilar didn’t have an easy time of that, either. He tells Luis that he wanted to be in there with her but he had to stay out in the waiting room to make sure he and Antonio didn’t trash the place, and then in the middle of the night, they all went in to see Pilar and this tiny, defenseless little girl, that he fell in love with her then and he still loves her and he’s not leaving when she needs her father. Luis tells him she needed him then but she doesn’t need him now, he needs to get that through his thick head. Martin tells him he’s not going anywhere, that he’ll get out of Luis’ way but he will stay as long as he wants, he won’t abandon his daughter now. Luis goes after him, telling him he’s not going anywhere, but Pilar steps between them and says to let it go.

Julian tells Alistair to go to hell, that he will make up for the first part of his life by marrying Eve and there’s nothing his father can do to stop him. Alistair laughs and says he loves it when people say that because there always is something he can do. He tells Julian to remind him whether he is still married to Rebecca, and Julian says for the moment, but it‘s a marriage of convenience. Alistair tells him he thinks she will have something to say about that, but Julian says it doesn’t matter, that Alistair kept him from the woman he loves for too long, and that he and Eve will be together as long as there is breath in their bodies. Alistair smiles an evil smile and nods a little. Outside the door, Rebecca is listening and says that sounds like a dare, that she just might have to kill Eve.

Gwen and Ethan see the baby and are elated. Gwen wants to go in, but Ethan tries to hold her back, saying Eve told them to stay outside. Gwen tells him she’s waited too long for this and bursts into the room anyway. Theresa asks Eve to let her hold her baby, but Gwen says it’s hers. Ethan tells her she didn’t mean it like that. Dr. Russell is working with the baby, who isn’t making a sound. She tells the nurse to get the neo-natal specialist in there right away. The nurse runs out, and Theresa asks what’s wrong. Eve says her vitals are very weak, then says she has stopped breathing. She starts trying to get her to breathe, but Gwen and Ethan crowd up on her and she has to tell them to get back. Theresa sits in her bed with a tear running down her face as Eve frantically tries to get the baby to breathe.

Previews: Alistair: “I am Alistair Crane. I can and I will stop Sheridan from marrying Luis!”

Sheridan to Katherine: “Who are you? What are you hiding? Please, I need to

know the truth!”

Gwen to Ethan: “I can’t lose another baby.”

Ethan’s reply: “She’ll make it. She’s going to make it, just have faith, all right?”
