At Beths front door, she asks Sheridan what she just said. Sheridan tells her she wants to talk about her child, that she wants him back, and inside, hearing this, Edna is thrilled, saying she told Beth that someday Sheridan would realize that he is her son and today is the day. She says Bethie is busted. Sheridan walks inside, leaving a speechless Beth to watch her go.
In the hospital waiting room, Chad tells Fox he wants to talk to him about how he let Whitney get so upset, talking about hating her baby and all. Fox says it wasnt him, he has no idea why shes so upset, and hes doing the best he can. Chad says its not good enough, but Fox tells him its not his business, shes his girlfriend now. Chad says thats true, but she is his sister and he wants to make sure Fox takes good care of her. Valerie walks in, asking whats going on, and Fox tells her Chad is butting his nose in where it doesnt belong. He starts to leave, but Chad stops him, saying hes going nowhere until he talks to him about how hes treating Whitney.
Julian asks Eve why shes so upset, and she says its because Whitney is going to need her now more than she ever has before. He asks if its because of the baby, and she tells him she wont be there for her because shell be in prison, convicted of three attempted murders. She says there has to be a way to make Alistair tell them who tried to kill him, but Julian says he believes Alistair doesnt know who tried to kill him. He asks why Whitney is so upset, saying she hates the baby and wants to move away. She tells him its complicated, but he tells her to let him help her and Whitney.
Whitney is outside Theresas front door when she stops and tells herself that the guilt she feels about passing Chads baby off as Foxs is tearing her up inside, but maybe helping Theresa deal with Gwen taking her baby will help her forget her own baby, then wonders for how long.
In the Lopez-Fitzgerald living room, Theresa asks her mother where Gwen could have taken her baby. Pilar says she doesnt know. Theresa tells her she wants her back as she starts to cry, then says she needs her. She sighs loudly and pensively asks where Gwen could have taken Jane.
In the Crane cabin, Gwen is feeding Jane on the sofa, telling her the mountain air makes her hungry and that makes Mama very happy. She says she is happy to be here with her and knows she is glad to be with her Mommy, too, that they are safe here, especially from that crazy Theresa. She says her daddy isnt going to let anything happen to them, that he will be here really soon.
In Alistairs secret bedroom, Ethan looks at the monitors and says Oh, my God, and Tina asks Alistair if Ethan saw Gwen and the baby on the monitor. The old man says hes not sure if he got the monitors turned off before he saw it or not. Ethan says Gwen and Theresas baby - you know where they are, looking at Alistair. He looks back, saying nothing, and then Katherine walks in, asking what they are all doing there. Martin says he thought she was staying at the hospital, but she tells him Sheridan left, then asks if theyve had any luck finding Gwen and the baby. They tell her no, not yet, and Luis tells her they are there to see if Alistair knows where they are. Katherine asks him if he does, then saying maybe his bunkmate knows. She is told the woman wont say anything, and Alistair adds that he has nothing to say, either, except for them to get out of his bedroom. Ethan tells him hes not going anywhere, that his secret is out and using the bank of monitors Alistair has, hes going to find his wife. (commercial)
In Eves office, Julian asks Eve whats going on with Whitney and her baby, and with Eve herself. He asks if shes upset because her little girl is all grown up and on the brink of becoming a mother, too. She says yes, thats part of it, but he tells her Whitney is a fine young woman and shell make a wonderful mother, and Fox will make a great father as well. She wishes it were only that simple, and he tells her to tell him why it isnt and help him understand. She says Whitney needs her to be here and she wont be able to be here when she needs her most if shes in prison. Julian says he will do everything he can to make sure that doesnt happen, but regardless, Whitney will never be alone, shell always have TC, Ivy, Fox, and even Chad. Eve is more upset at that, and he asks whats going on, what is it shes not telling him. She says she cant keep it a secret any longer, then tells him that Fox isnt the father of Whitneys baby.
Chad tells Fox he isnt going to let him neglect Whitney. Fox asks whats wrong with him, asking if hes feeling all right today. He says hes doing the best he can, and again Chad says its not good enough. Fox tells him to get off his case and stop acting like shes his other half. He says shes his half-sister and turns to leave. Chad tells him they arent through, but Valerie stops him, telling him Fox is right, Whitney is none of his business. He tells her he knows Whitney better than Fox does and he knows something is wrong with her. Valerie says shes pregnant, her hormones are all over the place, but he tells her that she was talking about how she hates her baby, then asks if that sounds like hormones to her, and the woman says no. Chad says something is wrong with her and he doesnt know what it is but she needs help and hes got to find out whats tearing her apart.
Whitney knocks on Theresas door and Pilar answers it. The girl says hello, then asks if theyve heard anything yet. Pilar tells her no, and Whitney walks in to the living room where her friend is sitting in her wheelchair. She hugs her and Theresa tells her its unbearable. Whitney asks if theres anything she can do, and the woman says she can tell her why this is happening, why something as wonderful as having a baby can be so painful. Whitney looks uncomfortable and tells her sometimes it just is.
Ethan tells Alistair its no secret that hes keeping an eye on everyone in Harmony, that Luis proved that at the Founders Day dance. He says he knows where Gwen and the baby are and he wants him to admit it. Alistair says he knows nothing, but Luis says thats a lie, to tell him where Gwens taken his niece. The old man says as they can see, he and his assistant werent watching TV when they burst in. He adds that, as they say, hes tuned in, its ridiculous, that he has no interest in seeing how President Putin puts on his trousers each morning. Ethan asks if hes trying to say if they turned on the monitors they wouldnt see whats going on in Harmony, D.C, foreign capitals. Alistair says absolutely not, but Martin tells him to cut the crap and tell them if they would see where Gwen and the baby are, right now. Again, Alistair says no. Ethan tells him he doesnt believe him, and grabs the remote off the bed. Alistair tells him to put it down, and Luis asks what hes afraid of now, and Ethan says he thinks they are about to find out, then uses the remote to turn the monitors on. He looks at the screens and says I dont believe it!
Beth asks Sheridan if she said she wants her baby back, and she tells her yes as Beth picks up a letter opener and looks like shes getting ready to use it on her rival. Sheridan goes on, asking if they heard about Gwen stealing Theresas baby, and Edna acts horrified, saying a girl would have to be bonkers to steal another womans baby, asking Beth if she agrees. Sheridan goes on, saying ever since she heard about it shes been thinking about what happened to her child, that she wants her baby back so badly but knows it will never happen. She turns quickly to face Beth, who quickly grabs a letter and opens it with her weapon. Sheridan said thats why she wanted to come over and spend some time with Marty. She asks Beth how hes doing as the woman jerkily opens more mail and says hes doing fine. Sheridan asks if she can see him, but Beth says no, hes sleeping and she doesnt think they should disturb him. Sheridan says she understands, then asks if she would mind if she went into Martys room and looked in on him. Edna hollers that its a great idea and Beth wouldnt mind, but Beth says no, that Marty needs his rest and as his mother she has to insist that he isnt disturbed. Sheridan asks Beth why shes acting this way, and Edna says to herself that its because shes a crazy freak, but Beth asks what way. Sheridan asks why shes so reluctant to let her see Marty. Beth reminds her she told her he is sleeping, but Sheridan says its not only now, that actually shes never wanted Sheridan to be around him, even though she is the one who saved his life by nursing him. Edna raises her fist in the air and yells YEAH!, then quickly adds now that Sheridan mentions it, Beth never wants her to see Luis son. Beth laughs, saying she doesnt know what the two of them are talking about, and Sheridan tells her shes not stupid, that she has always tried to keep Marty away from her and asks why she wont let her get close to him. (commercial)
Sheridan says its almost like shes afraid to let her see Marty, and Edna again yells YEAH!!. Sheridan asks why, what harm can come from her seeing Luiss son. Beth says shes sorry if it seems shes trying to keep him away from her, but she hasnt, then says its just that she worries about her getting to close to him will just upset her because shes missing her baby that died. Sheridan says My poor baby. while Edna thinks to herself that Beth is wicked and shameless. Beth goes on to say that as for tonight, shes not trying to keep him away from her, that Martys just tired and needs to sleep, no matter what her mother said. Sheridan apologizes to her for questioning her motives, saying shes just so upset over Gwen taking Theresas baby. Edna tells her shes sure it does, and it must remind her about that when that sicko kidnapper tore her baby away from her. Sheridan says she knows exactly what Theresa is going through, that its a terrible thing for any mother to go through. Beth says shes sure Luis would want Sheridan to be with his mother and sister at a time like this, telling her she should go over there right now and tell her they are thinking about her, pulling her by the arm to get her to leave. Sheridan just talks about having her baby ripped from her arms, saying it was the most horrible thing shes ever been through, and Edna says shes sure it was. Sheridan goes on to say she tried to hold on but was too weak and scared to stop them, and she feels ashamed that she couldnt protect her own baby. Beth is not wanting to hear all this, but Edna urges her on. Sheridan says when she saw the kidnappers car go off the bridge with her baby in it she never felt so much pain in her life. Beth is rolling her eyes at this point, as Sheridan gets some tissues for her tears. Edna tells her shes so sorry, more than she can say, and she and Beth give each other mean stares.
Theresa tells Whitney if Gwen hadnt stabbed her in the back and left her paralyzed shed be out there now looking for her baby, but instead she has to sit and wait. Whitney says Gwen doesnt have much money, then asks how far she can get in a prison uniform. Theresa asks what about Jane, that Gwen cant nurse her like she was doing, and she is sick. Whitney tells her Gwen wont let her starve, and she took the medicine Jane needs, too. Theresa tries to take comfort in that. Pilar brings soup, but Theresa says she cant eat knowing her baby could be out there starving because Gwen is too crazy to feed her. She says if anything happens to Jane, she will personally tear Gwen apart.
Gwen is holding Jane on the sofa, asking if her bottle was good. She tells her she is her sweet girl, then puts her on her shoulder to burp as she wonders whats keeping her daddy.
Ethan says Gwen and the baby are not on the monitors, and Sam says its just the stock market reports from around the world and news. Alistair says that Crane Industries is a global company. Sam says he doubts what was on the monitors when they came in was what they were looking at now, and Luis says it wasnt, that the monitors must revert to normal programming when they are turned on so whatever was on them so whatever he has under surveillance is kept secret. Alistair laughs, saying Luis should be writing spy novels, providing he can write. Ethan asks what was on the monitors before, and Alistair says he couldnt say, that he and his assistant were otherwise occupied. Martin calls him a liar, and asks where Gwen and his granddaughter are, but Alistair asks how he would know. Sam says because he is Alistair Crane, and he thanks him for the flattery, but says it wont get them anywhere, then insists they leave. Luis walks to him, damning him and saying if he doesnt tell them where his niece is he will be leaving in a body bag. (commercial)
Luis says he means it, to tell him where Gwen took his niece, but Sam says hes wasting his time, that even if he knows he wont tell them. Paloma says hes not a nice man, and Martin agrees, saying hes the Devil himself. Sam tells them they need to get out there and keep searching, telling Luis to come on, but Luis takes the time to tell Alistair that if he finds out he knows something and hasnt told them, he will make him pay. Alistair tells him to get in line, and they start to leave. Martin tells Paloma to go on out there, he will be with her in a minute, and Rebecca goes to Alistair, telling her for old times sake, please dont let anything happen to Gwen. He looks at her and she turns and leaves. He then asks what Martin and Katherine are waiting for, then says to get out. Martin tells him his granddaughter is missing and its Alistairs fault. The old man sarcastically says its not like hes ever dressed up like a woman and kidnapped a baby, but Martin says he helped Rebecca and Gwen go after Theresa and take her little boy away from her and everything thats happened since is a result of her trying to get him back. Alistair tells him hes an Irish idiot, that its not his fault Theresa cant control her lust for Ethan, then adds that evidently the inability to control carnal urges runs in Martins family. He says him and Katherine, Theresa and Julian, Miguel and Kay Bennett, and now Paloma trolling nightclubs trying to find it wherever she can find it. Martin jumps at him as Katherine tries to stop him.
Fox has come to Theresas house, too, and he tells her not to worry, that they will find Jane and she needs to stay strong. Pilar begs her daughter to have a little soup, and she agrees, as Fox takes Whitney across the room. He tells her hes upset about her, that she got so upset at the hospital and ran out again, saying she hates the baby, then asks her to tell him whats going on. She says she knows hes worried and wants to help, and she loves him for that, but there are some things she has to work out on her own and they have nothing to do with him. He asks how that is, saying anything that has to do with her and the baby has to do with him, but she says no, it doesnt, the baby has nothing to do with him. He is shocked and says it sounds like shes saying he isnt the babys father. She looks at him without saying anything.
Julian is trying to understand what Eve told him, asking if Fox is not the babys father. She tells him thats true, and he is still confused, saying Whitney and Fox have been together ever since she and Chad .then says Oh, my God, it cant be. She says the most horrible thing imaginable has happened to her daughter and their son, that Chad, Whitneys half-brother, is the father of her baby, not Fox.
In his office, Chad tells Valerie that part of the problem he has with Fox is that he hooked up with Whitney. He says he knows he cant be with her, but hed be lying to say he isnt jealous that Fox can be. Valerie says she understands, and he chuckles, asking if she really does. She says just because his brain tells him he cant be with Whitney, his heart cant stop feeling what it has felt for years. Chad is surprised that she really does understand, and she says it surprises her that Fox and Whitney dont. He tells her not to get him started on Fox, and she says she knows hes angry at him because he feels hes taken away the one thing he loved most, and Chad agrees. She says he must want to get even, and thats why she came to the hospital, that she knew the three of them would be at the hospital once they heard about Theresas baby and she didnt want him to lose his cool in front of Fox and make him think hes out to get him at Crane industries. He thanks her, but says thats the last thing on his mind right now. She tells him he cant get back at Fox for taking Whitney, and he cant get Whitney back because shes his half-sister, but there is a way to make Fox feel some of the pain hes been feeling. He asks how he can do that, and she says by hurting him at work like he set out to do, that is the way he can get back at Fox.
Sheridan picks her purse up from a table, saying she feels so much empathy for Theresa. Beth is thrilled, thinking she is finally leaving, but quickly finding out that isnt the case as Sheridan sets the purse on the sofa, takes of her jacket, and sits down. Beths face contorts at every move. Sheridan keeps talking all the while, saying all Theresa can do is sit and pray and hope she gets her baby back. At the same time, she says, she understands how Gwen feels at having lost two babies, knowing she can never have another, and says while what Gwen did was wrong, she does understand because losing a baby changes a woman, that its like how she was when she thought Marty was her son and tried to take him away from Beth. Beth laughs and says How crazy was that?, and Sheridan agrees, then says at the time she totally believed Marty was hers, probably the same way Gwen thinks Theresas baby is hers now, except that Theresa knows who took her baby and why, while all she knows about her babys kidnapper is what Alistairs investigator found out, that her name was Charlene, that she kidnapped her, stole her baby, and caused it to die. Edna says its amazing that she managed to do all that on her own, then says maybe the woman had an accomplice. Sheridan says if thats true and she ever finds that person, she will kill them and anyone else who helped them. (commercial)
Katherine steps in front of Martin, keeping him from attacking Alistair and telling him not to do it. Martin tells Alistair to keep his filthy mouth shut about Paloma, that he had his goon kidnap her in Mexico and he almost raped her. Alistair smirks and says that tonight Paloma claimed to have almost been raped again, saying it sounds like a pattern to him. Martin lunges for the old man, calling him a miserable son of a bitch, but Katherine is still between them and stops him, as Alistair laughs. She tells Martin he has to help find Theresas baby so forget about Alistair. He says all right, but tells Alistair its not over as they walk out of the room. Outside the room, Katherine tells him the others must be downstairs by now, that he should follow them and see if they have any more ideas about where Gwen could have taken the baby. He agrees and she gives him a big kiss, then says God bless him, calling him her love. He pulls back and asks what thats for, and she remembers Father Lonigan telling her Martin will follow her and her saying he wont because by the time he realizes shes gone, he wont know where to look and hell never find her. She comes back to the present and tells Martin hes a noble man and he should never forget that, then says she feels lucky to have gotten to spend her life with him. He tries to ask her whats going on again, and she says she just wants him to know that. He asks where its coming from, and she says from her heart, that she admires him and loves him even more. He tells her if he didnt know better, hed think she was telling him goodbye, but she says no, she just wants to make him feel better, as hes made her feel better all these years. He tells her that once theyve found Theresas baby they need to sit down and discuss their future together, and she agrees, saying they dont want to put it off too long, then tells him to go back and join the search. He agrees, then tells her hell call her on the cell phone. As he walks away, she softly says Good bye, my love. Alistair comes out of his room, clapping, and saying its touching for her to send her lover off to find his missing granddaughter and its too bad Norman Rockwell isnt there to paint the lovely moment. She tells him his sarcasm is duly noted, then says she wants him to know Martin is twice the man he is, in every way. He smiles, then asks if thats the reason she finds herself coming back to him all the time. He then asks the real reason shes there. She tells him she needs a favor from him.
Downstairs, Paloma tells Martin that Luis and Sam are going to join the house-to-house search, and he takes her hand and says they will go help. They walk out the front door as Rebecca tells Ethan she hopes hes planning an insanity defense for Gwen when shes found, recounting the charges she has against her and adding there could be another attempted murder count for choking Sheridan. Ethan tells her he hasnt even been thinking about that now, but yes, Gwen is definitely not in her right mind. Rebecca says Duh!, then asks what woman in her right mind would want to take Theresas baby. Ethan reminds her that shes his daughter, too, and she says the point is Gwen cant go to prison, that she needs help, not punishment. He tells her to focus on finding her and the baby first. They walk out of the house to join the others.
Gwen is wondering where Ethan is, telling the baby her daddy should have been here by now. She lays the baby in her crib and tells her to rest, that she will stay up and wait for him, then walks over to the waste basket and pulls the photo of Ethan and Theresa out. She tears Theresa out of it, then looks at it and tells the baby her daddys been there the whole time, showing her the blood-stained picture of him.
As the three women are talking, they hear Marty cry upstairs. Edna is thrilled hes awake now, but Beth is not happy at all. Sheridan says since Martys awake would it be all right to see him, and Beth says no, he usually goes right back to sleep. Edna says that since hes awake, he might as well come down and visit Sheridan, saying she will go up and bring him down. Beth tells her she cant manage to carry him down with her walker, but Edna snappily reminds her she can if she puts him in his stroller. She then whispers to her daughter that if Sheridan does remember hes her son she wants her to remember her as someone who tried to help her so she wont kill her, too. Beth decides she will help her, and Edna tells Sheridan to wait right there while they go get him. As they start up the stairs, Edna tells her daughter that is just a matter of time before Sheridan realizes Marty is her son and Beth was in on the kidnapping. Beth says this is no different from the other times shes hollered the jigs up, that Sheridan will never find out Marty is her son. Downstairs, Sheridan picks up his picture and looks at it. (commercial)
Whitney says she never said the baby isnt Foxs and then asks him to give her some space, that she told him at the hospital that she wanted to be alone for a while. He says he just didnt want her to feel he was neglecting her, but she says right now it feels like hes smothering her. He is hurt but says he sees, and she tells him shed appreciate it if he would give her the space she needs. He tries to say something, but she tells Theresa that she has to leave now but Fox is going to stay to help them. Pilar says thats very kind, and Theresa says she just wants everything to be all right with her baby. Silently, Whitney says she wants her baby to be all right, too, then tells her friend goodbye and leaves. Outside she takes out a picture of Fox and Chad together, saying she hates lying to them, that she thought it was the right thing to do but it wasnt, and that its hurting her and her baby. She asks what she is going to do, then remembers Chad asking her to let him be a father to her baby. She figures that if she tells him the truth, he can help her raise her baby.
Chad tells Valerie that hes kept his eye on his brother at work, and Fox doesnt know it but hes sinking in quicksand. She says slow and steady gets him first place, and Chad says Fox has been so distracted with Whitney and the baby that he hasnt had to do anything to make him look bad at work. Valerie agrees, then says they need to plan their next move, but first he needs to take his mind off his problems. He tells her his only problem is Fox and how hes not treating Whitney right, and she says hed think a lot better if he werent so tense, rubbing his chest and telling him to let her help him relax and release the pressure thats built up in him. She kisses him, but he pulls back, trying to say no, but she tells him shes not asking for a commitment and he doesnt have to make her breakfast, but he is a man and she is a woman and they can help each other forget their problems for a little while, then begins a full-out seduction of him.
Julian repeats that Chad is the father of Whitneys baby, not Foxs, and she says yes, and that she lied to everyone because Whitney begged her not to, and shes her daughter, adding that she loves her. He worries about poor, poor Whitney and says shes in a horrible situation. Eve says yes, thats why she cant go to prison, that she has to be here for Whitney and her baby. He understands, saying its a child of incest, and she tells him it could be born with a wide range of mental and physical problems that will just leave Whitney an emotional wreck and thats why she has to be here for her daughter and their grandchild.
Beth picks Marty up, saying Mommys here. Edna laughs and says actually, shes down in the living room, and Beth shushes her, telling her not to say that. Edna says shes sorry, she knows how Beth hates the truth. Beth says no, she hates her, and Edna asks Marty if he isnt a lucky fella that this loon isnt his real m-a-m-a. Beth tells her to shut up, calling her a hag bag and saying Sheridan and Luis will never know the truth. Edna says shes wrong, that the truth, like half of Hollywood, is bound to come out. Beth shushes her again, and the old woman adds it will be sooner than she thinks. Downstairs, Sheridan is looking at the picture of Marty and goes back to when she was holding her baby in the pit, telling him she will never forget his face, his ten toes and fingers, and his sweet baby smell. She comes back to the present, shocked, and says Marty is her son. (commercial)
Julian is still trying to accept that Chad is the babys father, not Fox. Eve says thats why Whitney keeps saying she hates the baby, because of the burden she feels of keeping the father of the baby a secret. He asks who else knows about it, and she says no one, that everyone in town thinks its Foxs. She says she tried to get her to tell the truth, but shes dead set against it and as her doctor, she has to keep her confidentiality. Julian says maybe she will have a change of heart at some point, and she says thats what shes been praying for. She says Chad has a right to know hes going to be a father, even if the child is Whitneys.
Whiney arrives at Chads door, telling herself he had said he wanted to be a part of her childs life, and if she tells him the truth he really can be. She says he can help her carry the burden, that its not their fault they are having a child of incest, but it happened and now they can deal with it together. She says even though they cant be together anymore, they do still love each other. After psyching herself up, she opens the door to see Chad making love to Valerie on the sofa.
Alistair walks behind Katherine, seductively rubbing his hand across her arm and shoulders, making her wince. He asks what he can do for her, and she tells him she wants to help her disappear without a trace so Martin nor Sheridan can ever find her. He seems interested in her idea.
Luis, Ethan, Paloma and the others file into the house and over to stand in front of Theresa. They have a hang-dog look about them, and seeing them, she realizes they didnt find her baby. She asks them, and then asks Ethan where her baby is and starts crying.
Gwen has taped Ethans picture to the back of a dining chair, and she brings two plates of food and sets them on the table, telling Ethan she hopes he likes it. She goes and picks the baby up, then goes back to the table, asking her if it isnt just wonderful to have Daddy there. She tells Ethan their family is just picture perfect, then sits down and tells the picture she loves him, then says the same to the baby.
Sheridan is still looking at Martys picture as the other women come downstairs with Marty. Edna whispers to Beth that she knows, and Sheridan turns around, looking at them and saying My son.
Fox, to someone: Well, I hate to say it, but Im starting to wonder if Im even the babys father.
Eve, to Julian: If you love me as much as you say you do, tell me you wont mention a word of this to Fox or Chad or anyone .
Sheridan, to Beth: My baby didnt die. He lived. Marty is my son and Im going to prove it.
