At the Lakeview, Meg and Eliza are taunting each other about who has been more of a mother to Eliza. Paul and Emma try to keep them calm. After Emma takes her daughter away, Emily complains that Meg is falling apart, he thinks that's what she wants. He suggests that she be Eliza's godmother. She likes that idea. Emma and Meg return and Paul explains his idea. "No, absolutely not!" Meg objects. Bickering ensues but Emma says this is a good idea and ushers her daughter out. Whispering to Meg, she tells her not to antagonize Emily. She gets a call from the farm that there has been an injury so she has to run off.

Noah stands outside of Lily's looking through the window at Luke and Reid making out. His friend, Richard, shows up and points out that his boyfriend is kissing his hot doctor. Noah's flabbergasted. Luke notices them and rushes out. Noah pretends that he couldn't see who was inside. Reid comes out and they stand around awkwardly until Luke suggests they all go out for a drink.

Casey meets with Ali at Java and asks her if she's ever heard of Dr. Gravid. She hasn't but offers to look around.

They go over the hospital and dig through the licensing registries but there is no evidence the doctor exists. Ali suspects that Vienna must be involved in this. He asks her to stay quiet about this.

Vienna and Henry have sex in her bed. He's wearing a cape and hopes he hasn't been too strenuous for her. He asks about her doctor and she leaps into the shower. He answers the door when there's a knock. It's Barbara. He covers his privates with his cape as she invites him to the christening, though she makes it clear that Vienna isn't welcome. They bicker in the hallway about that but he argues that Vienna is his family and she needs to be there. Barbara begs him to honor her wishes. When he goes back inside, he tells Vienna the christening has been canceled.

Casey drops by Vienna's. She's not thrilled to see him. He begins asking about her doctor and wonders if he exists. She repeats that he's not the baby's father. When they talk about the christening, he tells her that it's still on.

At Yo's, Luke is feeling guilty but Reid thinks they should just come clean with Noah. Luke debates this with him. He admits that he has feelings for him but he's in love with Noah. Reid tells him he better make a choice. Noah sits at a table and squints at them. Reid departs and Luke sits with Noah. Holding his hand, he talks about how rough things have been between them, but he loves him and wants him back. Noah is baffled and accuses him of just feeling guilty for kissing Dr. Oliver. Luke claims there is nothing going on. "Did you sleep with him?" Noah demands. Luke insists they didn't. Noah refuses to his 'fall back guy' and declares that they are finished. "I have my sight now. I don't need you," he says as he storms out.

At the church, Paul worries to his mother about Meg. When she asks him if she can move into Fairwinds, Emily pops up to say it's a horrible idea. Meg arrives alone. She takes Eliza in her arms as Ali arrives and Henry trails in. He locks eyes with Barbara. Paul walks over and asks Henry to be the godfather. The clergyman arrives and the child is christened as Vienna runs in. Once the child is christened, Paul thanks everyone for coming and then pries Eliza out of Meg's arms as they all file out. Vienna stays behind to snipe at Barbara and Henry rambles excuses.

At Fairwinds, Barbara stares daggers at Henry as he walks in with Vienna. He slips off with Barbara and tries to assure her things will be fine. Vienna begins loudly announcing that she and Henry are expecting a child and getting married. Barbara blows up at her and Vienna begins throwing insults back until Henry drags her out. "I think this is a really great party," Paul declares. Ali says goodbye to her sister and runs. Paul asks his mother to move in. Emily hears him say that and blows up. Before she can rant, Meg suddenly leaps over to her, accusing her of being the devil and demanding her daughter back. Everyone tries to calm her down. Paul has his wife hand the child to Barbara and then he and Emma lead a twitching Meg out of the house.

Emma checks her daughter into the hospital. Meg continues to rant that 'the evil woman' is plotting to take her child away.

Casey calls Bob and asks him about Dr. Gravid. Bob laughs and explains what the name means (it's 'pregnant' in Swedish). Alison shows up and they talk about the mess he's in. He wouldn't deny that the baby is his but Vienna has no interest in him. Casey asks her to help him get to the truth. She agrees to help.

 image

Henry takes Vienna home and fights with her about her fight with Barbara. She's sick of him pretending that he doesn't care about Barbara. He admits that he does, but he still wants to be with Vienna. She wonders if he would want that if she wasn't pregnant.

 image

Luke goes to see Reid at his place. He explains that Noah has his sight back and saw them kissing. Luke explains that he told Noah he wanted him back but he was rejected. Reid accuses him of just being hurt and crawling to the nearest shoulder. He kicks him out.
