Carly is at the station waiting for Jack. She's about to eat his donut when he arrives. He's eager to get to the sonogram. She wonders why he didn't sleep at her place last night. Jack didn't want to confuse Sage. The bicker about what will happen with the baby. He says it will take time to work things out and promises that he will be with her.

Dusty walks into the farm house and catches Janet looking at the ring. He repeats that the baby must be his. He says that there is only a slightly better chance that Jack's baby would even be a better match than his. Dusty encourages her to try and be happy and try on the ring. "If I'm having your baby, I'm wearing this ring," she says.

Jack arrives at the hospital. Janet and Dusty are already there. The men argue. Carly arrives. The women begin arguing. Carly insists that she's part of this. Janet blows up. Dusty drags her off. Carly and Jack hug and he asks her to trust him enough to leave. The doctor arrives and they do the sonogram. He explains that she's about five weeks along. "I'm the father," Jack says with a gulp. Janet asks to speak to Jack alone. She hopes that this can be Liberty's cure. He misses Brad but he hopes this can help his daughter. She decides it's best that she break the news to her daughter herself. They wonder how their partners will deal with this.

Dusty meets Janet in the corridor. She offers his ring back. He won't take back his proposal. He still wants her.

Henry crawls out of his bedsheets looking for a bottle of water. Barbara takes a swig and begins gabbing about Henry's other women. She says they should both be grateful for what they've learned from their previous lovers. They dive in for more. After sex, he gets dressed and they talk about his money. She asks him out to dinner.

Henry gets in the elevator and spots Vienna. He's shocked. They speak awkwardly. She says she's there to see him because she's impressed by how generous he's been by donating his inheritance to the hospital. Katie told her all about it. He smirks.

Barbara runs into Carly in the hall. She knocks over her portfolio and begins admiring her work as she picks it up. Barbara can't believe that Carly is partnering with Craig again. Carly says things will be bigger and better this time. They catch up. Carly's baffled to see Barbara being so conciliatory.

On the street, Katie gives Reid a pair of handcuffs to remember Oakdale by. He says goodbye to Jacob. Luke watches and is shocked to see the doctor being so sweet. Katie wishes he didn't have to leave. He hands her a business card with his beeper number on it. Turning around, he tells Luke to stop eavesdropping and get lost. Luke's never seen him be nice. Katie gets a text and runs off. Luke asks Reid if he'll be sitting with Noah on the plane. The doctor discovers his flight is delayed and wants a drink. Luke offers to let him use his plane. Reid turns him down.

Reid goes into the Lakeview for a beer. Luke chases him in and they bicker. He thinks that Reid doesn't respect him because he's gay. "I'm gay," Reid informs him. Luke doesn't believe it. Reid says he's known since he was nine and never kept it a secret. Luke thinks he should have told him so they could bond. Reid doesn't want to bond with him and walks away.

Henry and Vienna go to Al's. As they start to talk, Katie runs in and interrupts. Vienna gets excited about the hospital donation and begins planning a party. When she runs off, Henry tells Katie she's played a dirty trick. She thinks Vienna still has stars in her eyes for him. Barbara calls but he doesn't pick up at first. After listening to Vienna for awhile, he slips away to call Barbara back and cancel on their evening. She says there is no pressure, but she's clearly disappointed. He gets off the phone and Katie leaves him with Vienna.

Vienna and Henry return to the hotel. She knows that she's left him more than once but she still loves him. As she kisses him, Barbara sees them together.

 image

Jack goes to see Carly at home. She guesses the baby is his. He explains what happened and how he thought of her the whole time. They kiss and then leap into bed. After sex, she says they should tell the kids where they stand. As they get dressed, he talks about how he's never experienced a pregnancy like this.

 image

Janet and Dusty go back to the farm house. He tells her that he still loves her and will love her family too. He wants them to get married and have a home together. Janet says she can't marry him. He kisses her. She places the ring in his hand. Dusty walks out. Carly walks in and announces that she will be there to help her... so Jack doesn't have to.

Dusty goes to see Jack at the station. He tells him that he is free to be with Carly.
